Did you actually read my post? He's got the five moves as that's whats expected of him and pretty much all he's allowed to do on PG-13 Raw. His earlier stuff is a lot better. Same with Big Show, he's now all stomps and punches but he was pretty cool back in WCW.

I have seen Big show do a kick flip

So many kids got leg dropped in the 80s...

I'm with Tregaurd here, Cena's not that bad at all, and actually has pretty good matches in my opinion. He's no Kurt Angle or William Regal in the technical department but he's not as bad as people make out, he easily has more than 5 moves, and that's just counting his signature spots.

The ONLY good matches I have ever seen Cena have were with Edge and let's be honest Edge could carry a plank of wood to a good match.

Cena is an utterly woeful wrestler and always has been.

Check out Cena vs Cm Punk at TLC 2011, Cena vs RVD at One Night Stand 2006, Cena vs Umaga at Royal Rumble 2007 and Cena vs HBK on Raw( 2007). All good matches that Cena holds his own in.

I thought his match with The Rock was pretty good too, another guy who supposedly has only 5 moves.

Cena Vs. RVD was only good because he lost. The other 2 matches were pretty meh.

Never heard that about The Rock myself, I have always thought he was a pretty good wrestler. After all he does come from a wrestling family, it's in his blood.

Yeah I've heard that a lot, usually from 'fans' that never even saw the rock as rocky miavia or even in the nation. As he's gone on his moves have decreased though but then again ..... hasn't everyones? I also miss his original finisher a running shoulderbreaker kind of thingy

Oh yeah, I've heard that from many a Rock hater, infact some will say only 3 moves, saying he only does the rock bottom, people's elbow and spinebuster, but obviously people often exaggerate to make a point. Hence why I think saying Cena does 5 moves is harsh. If we only went by the moves people are known for Million Dollar Man only did about 3 or 4.

Surprised you didn't like Punk vs Cena at TLC much, or Cena vs HBK from Raw, but fair enough.

That Punk vs Y2J match on RAW was awesome

Shame on those that voted for Borton and Rey. (Result was Rey vs Brian and Brain carried it)

Certainly was. Punk vs Rey could have been good aswell, but it worked out well as Rey vs Bryan was a good match too.

New WWE Title Belt.

Looks okay, but the WWE Logo's too big for my taste...

I'd love that to happen. :) It probably is too much of a stretch for WWE though.

I'm also hoping that Cena turns out to be the secret leader of The Shield or something, and has a massive heel turn to beat The Rock at Wrestlemania. I know that won't happen either but it's better than the almost set in stone outcome of just Cena beating Rock for the title in a rematch that nobody really wanted to happen. The crushing inevitability of it all has been really killing my interest in this year's Wrestlemania ever since Rock won the WWE belt at Royal Rumble. :(

To much to ask for a final Rock heel turn and form the New Nation leading the shield? I'd buy that for a dollar
