[9.0] "I do understand why Cena is quite very polarizing performer, but I think when rating him objectively, giving him anything less than a 6 is utterly ridiculous. In fact, to me he is one of the greats. You can argue that he has a limited moveset and his character has been the same for 10 years, but he definitely knows how to work a match, and most of the time, unless he's wrestling someone he just can't connect with like Big Show or Miz, he puts on quality matches, and he's been a part of multiple MOTY candidates year after year. It also can't be denied that he's extremely charismatic and draws audiences whether it's because people love him or want to see him get his arse kicked. The fact that he works harder than almost anyone in the company only makes me appreciate him more. And as for accusations of being the modern day Hogan as he "can't wrestle" and "buries talent"? Please. Cena is 10 times the in-ring worker Hogan was and many who have worked with him have gone on record to say he actually tries to help new talent, but of course the booking of many of his feuds usually fail him in that area."

[4.0] "Held down too many talents for me to even have a slight appreciation for him. I'll give him a 4 for at least adding a couple of good moves to his repertoire."

[0.0] "Just the picture of him on here annoys me. I'm so over his tired act that never changes. Boring. Really boring. I have absolutely no interest in seeing him win any more titles. His title count is ridiculous. Why did he ever need to win that many world titles? 15? He doesnt make stars out of anybody either. Not his fault entirely but yeah."
Dolorian wrote on 18.10.2015:
[2.0] "Hands down the worst booked character since Hogan. Almost never loses clean and when he loses he almost always needs to have a rematch instantly and then another match and another with the same guy who beat him so that he has to win against him 3 or more times in a row within a short time span in order to bury them and chalk up his lost as a fluke in the eyes of the public. Sure he is a workhorse but his move set is nothing stellar nor is his mic work. The way he is booked also throws the entire roster off balance and this has been going on for more than 10 years already. With his trend to always kick out at two he also almost never sells the finishers of his opponents but all it takes for him to win is one Attitude Adjustment and then it is 1, 2, 3 lolcenawins. Boring."
Six Three Times wrote on 13.10.2015:
[5.0] "With a profoundly limited and graceless move-set, history of burying younger talent, and years of being massively over-pushed, Cena presents as one of the more hatable faces of all-time. While I can't argue that any of these asides tossed his way are invalid, I cannot withhold credit from the man for having one of the great years in recent memory. At 38, he's managed to have more 4+ star matches this year than I can count. Owens, Rollins, Cesaro, and plenty more throughout his reigns as US champion. Main event Cena is a cancer, but US champion Cena is quality. His style is rough and ugly, but his psychology is stellar. He's figured out the formula. His greatest matches have been with main event caliber athletes, but he's gotten more out of them then anyone else. He isn't being carried, he's contributing in a big way to some of the best matches WWE has put on in years. As an overall talent, Cena isn't much to celebrate. His success has not truly been warranted, his work has largely been mediocre, and he hasn't always had a positive effect on the product. As great as his 2015 has been, I can't give him an 8 or a 9 just off of it. However, I think Cena, at his best, can produce as compelling a match as you'll ever see. He deserves some credit for that."

[2.0] "You see, I was somewhat a fan of John Cena and I rarely ever complain about WWE in general. I'm almost the most positive guy on these forums but there comes a time when it's enough is enough. You could milk something for too long until you get sick and tired of it. Here's the thing, John Cena could work great matches and applaud him for that and he has busted his ass more than anyone in the last 10 to 11 years but then, you just have enough. He constantly destroys anybody's momentum. People complain about Triple H, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and many others but when it comes to do the job which is good for business, they'd do it. John Cena doesn't. If he lost to his opponent, he'll have like 9 rematches until he destroys anything dignity left in that person. He books himself TOO STRONG to be beat and it's getting way out of hand. I mean, here's an example of an Undertaker match... back in 2009, he jobbed cleanly to Kozlov with a POWERSLAM! Would John Cena ever lose to someone with a regular move like a powerslam? Or a powerbomb, Or heck THE FROG SPLASH? No, he won't make himself look weak. John Cena gets a lot of hate which he doesn't deserve. He's actually a better wrestler than people give him credit for. Yes, the outcome of the matches do suck but his overall in-ring work is brilliant. He had great matches with the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Umaga, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar, Sheamus, and many others. His matches ranges from good to modern time classics. People are just in denial and I'm not his biggest fan but I respect his workrate."

[10.0] "I personally put this guy at about a 9 or a high 8, but hell, I'll go for 10 because 7. 01 is an absolutely laughable rating for someone of his obvious ability. The internet needs to be shut down, it's creating legions of ingrates. If you rate him below 6 find a new hobby, seriously."
AidenSionis wrote on 01.09.2015:
[0.0] "John Cena is only best in kissing Vince McMahon's ass. Nothing special about him. WWE puts up some matches between John and new talents, but frankly speaking, these talents are buried by John, like Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Rusev. He is just acting like a hero just like Roman Reigns. Some wrestlers like Kofi and Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar, they have trained in some mix martial arts thing but John can't even throw a fist."
georgele12 wrote on 22.08.2015:
[0.0] "John Cena is the worst thing to ever happen to pro-wrestling. Never before (and hopefully never again) has there been a performer with as little talent as Cena sitting on top of the biggest wrestling company in the world for over a decade. Cena's wrestling ability is extremely overrated. Generally Cena's matches rely on continuous near-falls after each move to build any sort of suspense or drama because Cena's in ring psychology is so poor that it is near on impossible to by into anything that Cena does. He can't talk either. Shouting into a microphone and changing your promo to sucker up to whatever town your in does not by any means make you a good talker. Cena is completely monotone and rarely has anything interesting or intelligent to say, and instead relies on corny jokes and directing the focus to his opponent's flaws which completely takes away from the intensity that is meant to be prevalent in his respective feuds. Rating 0 is probably a little bit harsh, but John Cena is certainly not deserving of all the glory he's been aloud to soak in over the past 10 years, and this is especially the case considering all the guys who actually did have talent that he has since sent packing back down the card."
