Attitude Adjuster / Throw Back / F-U John Cena uses a variation of a Fireman’s Carry Takeover. John lifts his opponent onto his shoulders, then elevates them by pushing up their legs to flip them over and drop them on his back. John can also apply this to larger athletes, and uses a slight variation — it involves the same sort of routine. It sees John lifting them up, but leaning them to one side however making the flip easier to follow through. This has led John to many wins throughout his career.
STF / STFU John has also put his own twist on the very popular STF/STS submission hold, the normal hold involves a sleeper type hold around the downed opponents neck. However, Cena added his own variation to this and pulls back on the head of the opponent, he also crosses his hand to get further control over the opponent. It also involves more elevation than that of a normal STF.
ProtoPlex / Proto-Bomb / KillSwitch John uses a variation of a spin out powerbomb, that he calls the Protoplex, this involves Cena attacking from behind — picking up the opponent and “spinning” out to get to a sideslam position, and eventually turns it into a front slam.
