**Ahem** Allow me...

It was a couple of hours before April 1st...the post before was singing the praises of John Cena and his future career.

That about do it?

He disagrees. (As in it wasn't quite April Fool's Day yet.) Honestly, I don't see how - I'm hardly a Cena fan, but that's just because something about his character rubs me the wrong way. To say that he doesn't continually step up his game - even, nay, especially after it's become clear that he's the WWE's new guy come hell or high water - is just a sign you're paying even less attention than I am. (Did anyone in the WWE have more great matches in 2007 than Cena? And not just against Shawn Michaels and Edge, but against guys like Randy Orton and Umaga and even a watchable pair against The Great Khali?) And, like the man said, he's crazy young and hasn't even come close to peaking yet. And he gets a response out of everyone in the crowd. He's a future icon, right alongside guys like Flair and Race and Hogan, no matter if you, I or anyone else likes it or not.

I absolutely agree that Cena has the potential and desire to be a legend. The only problem with it is that this is happening (and is probably going to happen) during the lowest exposure and visibility that WWE has ever been in. Can you truly be a legend when your ratings and buyrates (non-Mania) are so significantly below those of WWE's last legends, Austin & Rock?

I'm not even blaming Cena, it's just that WWE has been stuck in a non-boom world for 7 years now, and it seems like that's where they're going to be. (Flea of course is going to disagree with this.)



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

And what of legends like Steamboat and Race, who were in the primes in territories or eras that were not a part of wrestling booms?

So, does anyone know what is going to happen with Flair now? I imagine he is still going to draw a McMahon signed check. I always thought he could be the next Bobby Heenan meaning he's probably the only guy since Heenan or maybe Heyman that can take a random group of wrestlers and turn them into top heels that go on to have long and prosperous careers.

Public Relations, per PWTorch (pwtorch.com). That's a good excuse for a paycheck without the travel schedule.

The Big Show is an incredible talent for a Giant... more because of his microphone skills of working a crowd. He is so over right now.

I hope they never go back to reverting him into selling moves to opponents like with Angle, Lesnar, Kane etc..... He's a true giant and needs to be treated like a giant. Giants almost never sell moves.

Still, I don't see where the Khali/Show feud will go unless Show destroys Khali right out of the WWE.

JBL vs Orton feud???? I don't like it although there is time to make this work.

What are they going to do with HHH and Cena without them chasing the belt?

Let's hope they make the Tag Teams title mean something once again.

They really need to do something with Beth Phoenix... personally, I like to see her one on one against Santino.

HHH going to Smackdown to feud with Batista... I guess they do need to move some talent to their B-show.

While I agree that Show shouldn't be selling Jamie Noble's chops to the chest, why wouldn't he sell people like the three you mentioned? Angle, broken down he may be, is a legit bad ass and knows how to take somebody apart. Brock was a fuckin' monster that could legit toss Show around and Kane, even pussified, is still technically a monster himself. Maybe I read your post wrong and you meant he should only sell for guys like that or even that you meant he shouldn't sell like those guys had to. Now I just confused myself.

Loved the tribute by the way. It got me pretty misty eyed as well.



Cena can't be beat because he's some unholy genetic recombinate of superstars past. I mean, you might as well call him John "Realest of the Real, Sargent Rock - Cold - A - Mania" Cena.

Last week, Smackdown had The Rock, a World Title change, and diva cannibalism! This week, without fanfare, we have the seven hundredth episode of Smackdown. Can it live up to last week's pedigree? Lets find out! Smackdown is now!
