John Cena, aka The Prototype, makes his debut this week, against of all people Kurt Angle. I've heard good thingsabout Cena. Anyone else have anyhting on him?
As a Light-Heavyweight, I'm proud that I'm entitled to weekly boasts on Fridays about how I'm going to be pushed to the moon. So far I've been main eventing "Metal", a B-Level show. Those silly Cruiserweights who think that a couple of mentions in the Ross Report makes them all that. They really believe that THEY'LL be getting OUR pimps from the Ross Report abou....huh?! A new show called "Velocity"?....WHAT DO YOU MEAN METAL GOT CANCELLED?!
I was there last night. He looked GREAT! He is the perfect prototype of a professional wrestler. He's ripped but not too ripped, big, but not too big and has a eyecatching appearance - cool buzzcut. Think of a slightly larger version of Randy Orton (who, by the way, was who people thought was coming out to face Angle)
He put on a really solid 5-6 minutes with Angle and held the advantage for most of the match. Angle snuck the win in with a rollup and quickly scooted up the ramp. Cena looked stunned and had some good interaction with the ref and some great interaction with the crowd. The crowd was really behind him and applauded his effort.
After the match he was being congratulated by some guys backstage when Taker appeared and extended his hand and said good match. - Weird. Start him off against Angle, then have UT show interest?
