With all of the happenings on Raw last night, we almost forgot about this. Alright, we jest; Raw wasn’t that good.
Thankfully for all of us John Cena fans, our boy managed to pick up the coveted award of Superstar of the Year, beating out all of the other superstars on the roster including CM Punk, Undertaker and Randy Orton. While others have had good years, we think John has had an exceptional year. Lets look at a quick sum up:
John Cena started the year on a high coming back from his neck fusion surgery to claim the World Heavyweight Championship which he kept until No Way Out. Despite the bump of NWO; Cena would be defiant and would find himself inserted in the World Heavyweight Championship triple threat match at WrestleMania XXV where he amazed thousands; hoisting Big Show and Edge up on his shoulders together. WrestleMania was undoubtedly a proud moment for Cena fans. His title reign wouldn’t last long as the Big Show reared his ugly head everywhere John Cena turned and even put him through a 7000-watt search light! The two battled through matches where Cena would overcome the odds again and again. Amongst the back and forth battles with the Big Show, Cena found himself intertwined in yet another feud to the up-and-coming Miz who was looking to solidify his place in the WWE by picking up victory after victory on the “Golden Boy” Cena. Suffice to say, Cena made short work of the two and was back in the title hunt against an old time rival: Randy Orton. Every encounter they had: Summerslam, Breaking Point, Hell in a Cell, Bragging Rights — every match got better overtime and Cena overcame seemingly insurmountable odds when he beat Orton in an Anything Goes Iron Man match. Pursuing forward, adding prestige to the title, the D-Generates poked their noses in and tried to “dethrone” Cena; unfortunately, Cena proved too good. Though we had a bumpy end to the year, where he lost to Sheamus; Cena has undoubtedly had one hell of a year.
So, lets give a big congratulations to our boy.
