Unusual for a career babyface, Cena has maintained his top spot for an unprecedented 10 years, partly though no fault of WWE's own: Wrestling/JeffHardy's merchandise outsold Cena's for three months straight, but WWE had to dump him after the Junk Squad raided his house; Wrestling/CMPunk hemmed and hawed until WWE finally made him a main event babyface. He quit the night after ''Royal Rumble 2014'', and {{Wrestling/Vince|McMahon}} was left [[NowWhat holding the bag]]. After fighting against it, the company finally gave [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] a push... then waited as he recuperated from ''shoulder'' surgery, and then ''neck'' surgery, and then complications with rehab, etc. Three contenders for the crown, and WWE has been burned three times. As a consequence, Cena is one of the most polarizing Superstars in [=WWE=] history, as older fans have [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks grown tired of him always winning]]. But he has also raised '''a child army''' of new fans, triggering a weekly shouting war of "LET'S GO CENA" and "CENA SUCKS".

It goes without saying that the Cenation holds claim to a lot of titles. Flair had a career that spanned over thirty years. In that time he won 16 world titles (or a few more depending on who you're asking). By comparison John Cena has won 15, yet has only been active for about a third of Flair's career. He's also a one time Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank winner, in which he became known as the first person to [[EpicFail unsuccessfully cash in.]] (Through no fault of his own, however. Wrestling/TheBigShow interfered in the match, so Cena won the match, but not the title. Coincidentally, Cena would later be responsible for causing Wrestling/DamienSandow to lose the match after cashing in, another first.)

** This happened recently on the post-''Survivor Series'' ''[=Raw=]'' when Awesome Truth (The Miz and [[Wrestling/RonKillings R-Truth]]) decided to mock Cena for having the Madison Square Garden fans all booing him the night before, and cheering The Rock. Of course, Cena turned the attempted insult right around into a brilliant TheReasonYouSuckSpeech so magnificent that he broke up Awesome Truth without even laying a finger on Miz or Truth.

Of course, Cena turned the attempted insult right around into a brilliant TheReasonYouSuckSpeech so magnificent that he broke up Awesome Truth without even laying a finger on Miz or Truth.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** Gives a pretty good one to Vince [=McMahon=] on the July 19th, 2011 episode of RAW, calling Vince out on the Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob and his attempt to do it again the previous night, chewing him out on what it'd done to Shawn Michaels career.
** He topped that with an even better one at the end of the post-''Survivor Series'' '11 ''Raw''. How better? He dismantled Awesome Truth without even laying so much as a finger on either of the two.
** Gets another nice one on John Laurinaitis on the May 14, 2012 episode of RAW, listing every single failure Laurinaitis has had since ''[=WrestleMania=]'', calling him out on his ItsAllAboutMe mentality, chews him out for firing the Big Show for ''[[DisproportionateRetribution mocking his voice]]'' ''while mocking his voice'', and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking cutting him off whenever he started talking to call him a loser.]]
** Cena seems to be quite good at giving these, as he delivers a great one on CM Punk during the main event segment of the September 10th, 2012 episode of RAW, calling out the recently [[FaceHeelTurn heel-turned]] Punk on his vicious quest for "respect" and telling the supposed Voice of the Voiceless that his campaign for change in WWE was nothing more but Punk being in the business for himself.
** He also called out Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio for beating up Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr and calling himself a champion, even yelling at him "YOU ARE ''NOT'' A CHAMPION!"
** Gives an epic one to Wrestling/RandyOrton on the December 2, 2013 episode of RAW, ripping him for his defection from Evolution after winning the World Heavyweight Championship back in 2004 and essentially turning his back on his mentor at the time, WWE COO Wrestling/TripleH.
--->'''Cena''': The only dream you have ever turned into a nightmare is Triple H's, because ten years ago he chose you, to teach you how to be a success in the WWE. And what did you do about it? YOU NEVER LIVED UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL! EVER! No no no no no, I don't fault [[Wrestling/TripleH him]]; he chose you because he saw what we all saw: you are the most gifted WWE Superstar ever. You make every single thing in this ring look easy. But with that you got cocky, and you got a bad attitude to boot, and then you got lazy. You were the YOUNGEST WWE Champion in history! [Triple H] gave you Hall-of-Fame mentors to learn from, and what did you do? Kick back, relax, and let [[SelfDeprecation some scrappy kid in a t-shirt and a ball cap]] ruin his dream! I AM '''NOT''' YOU, Randy Orton! I am John Cena! I have never been asked to be called the face of ANYTHING! I'm just the first to show up, and the last to leave. And that's the way it is, Jack.
** And reminds Orton and everyone else during the "Championship Ascension" ceremony on the December 9th episode of Raw, that even if he doesn't show "ruthless aggression" in the ring anymore, he sure as hell does on the mic:
--->'''Cena''': It's funny... I couldn't help but noticed you used the word "work." Little example for one second... ''[pulls Daniel Bryan to the center of the ring to a ''massive'' home state pop]'' Tell these people your name, please.\\
'''Daniel Bryan''': My name is [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]].\\
'''Cena''': We'll get to know you a little more. Has your mother or father ever been a WWE Superstar or champion, at all?\\
'''Bryan''': No, my father is a long-scaler actually.\\
'''Cena''': So... since you've been here, you've had to ''work'' for everything you've got?\\
'''Bryan''': YES. ''[crowd goes into massive "YES" chant]''\\
'''Cena''': You hear that? The reason they cheer for him is because he works and he earns it. A guy like you has been given ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis every! single! thing]]'' in the WWE! I'm about to hit you in the face with some truth. Ever since you came to the WWE training center, you were untouchable, you were bullet-proof, you couldn't be fired. [[CreatorsPet Nobody could touch Randy Orton because THEY liked you]]. And then you get to the WWE and what happens? You get sheltered behind [[Wrestling/TripleH the best performer in the business]]. Nothing's changed, Randy. All you do is hide behind Triple H. All you do is hide behind Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon. ''And you got the balls to stand in this ring and say you're better than anybody here?! You say you're bigger than all of this?''\\\
[[NeverMyFault You have always blamed everyone else for your failures, you've pointed fingers and you've made excuses]]. You've had behavior problems in the ring, you've had behavior problems ''outside'' the ring, and the sad thing is, the TLC match this Sunday is the biggest in WWE history. That is why everybody is here tonight; this changes the very course of the WWE. But you want these championships because you're selfish, because you feel you deserve it, and maybe, just maybe, if you hold onto this, you can finally walk around with the rest of the superstars and say "Hey guys, look. I'm finally what I was supposed to be ''10 years ago''." Every single time I have held either of these championships, my business card has remained the same: "You want some, come get some."\\\
And here's the real truth: Whether these guys in the ring like me or not, they respect me because they know it. Whether it's Triple H or it's Wrestling/ShawnMichaels in a Wrestling/WrestleMania match, whether it's Wrestling/BookerT... hell, nobody wanted to give Wrestling/DolphZiggler a chance, what did I do? I said "Let's fight." Everybody said it was a bad idea to give Wrestling/CMPunk a championship match when he was going to leave the WWE! All I saw was "The Best in the World." Hell, the only ''legitimate'' championship shot that Daniel Bryan's ever had was against ''[[InvincibleHero me]]'' and ''[[CueTheFlyingPigs he won.]]'' ''[to Daniel Bryan]'' So I'll say it right here in front of your home town. If I win this Sunday, I look forward to the rematch. A ''fair'' rematch.\\\
See, ''that's'' what being a champion is all about, a certain level of respect, and last week I wasn't going to take you out. I just wanted to make a statement. That when the chips are down, ''I can be just as brutal as you.''\\\
This Sunday will be physical and it will be brutal and I will be at my very best. I just hope you are too, because after this Sunday, the last thing anyone is going to want to deal with is ''just another Randy Orton excuse.'' Good luck on Sunday. You're gonna need it.
** He gives a rather epic one to Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon on June 6, 2014 over how she and Wrestling/TheAuthority had treated Daniel Bryan, telling her that every time he comes close to becoming a champion, she screws him over.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx61cVP32HQ Cena absolutely lambasted Miz and Maryse]] on the March 28, 2017 episode of [[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown Live]], reminding them that they're hypocrites, that Maryse does nothing but show up and hang around Miz, and that Miz himself constantly runs his mouth despite having no desire to fight anyone, much less fight Cena.
--->'''Cena:''' With you two, it's not just a joke. You actually believe what you're saying is true, and it couldn't be further from the truth. ''[to Maryse]'' Like you. You actually believe that [Nikki] kept you from coming back to WWE, yet you're standing in a ring right now. How the hell could that even happen?! Here's the truth, and it's gonna sting a little bit; they didn't ask you back because they didn't want you back, because when you were here before, you didn't do ''jack.'' You don't believe me? Get on the WWE Network right now and search for "Best of Maryse." You find this ''[makes a 0 with his hand]''.\\\
''[to Miz]'' And you? [[SarcasmMode You got my life all planned out. This is just a 15-year plan for me to use the WWE as a vaulting board to Hollywood so I can go on to the red carpet and leave WWE in the dust]]. Man, are you high? I'm as brand loyal as Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, and hell, [[SelfDeprecation I'm not even cool about it]]! Everybody here knows I'm loyal to the WWE. Hell, half of em hate me for it! They want me to go but they can't get rid of me!\\\
Mike... I'm doing a movie. And then I'm coming back. A lot of superstars do this, guys. Wrestling/TripleH has done it, Wrestling/RandyOrton's done it, Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} has done it, Wrestling/SethRollins has done it, Wrestling/DeanAmbrose has done it, and oh wait... you've done it. It slipped my mind for a second because [[Film/TheMarine the only movies you're in are crappy bootlegs of movies I already made]].\\\
No, it's cool, because at least you're ''doing'' something. I'm ''still'' trying to figure out what ''[to Maryse]'' you're doing here. Did you know that right now, there is a women's revolution going on? And that means each and every week, women aren't just allowed, they are encouraged to step in this ring and prove that they are just as good, if not better, than men. I don't know if you guys saw this, but last week, Nicole picked up [[Wrestling/TylerBreeze a dude]] who was 210 pounds and threw him around like he was a waste of space. ''[to Maryse]'' Every week, you show up, steal a paycheck, and you ''are'' a waste of space.\\\
And you wanna knock Nicole for not having kids? How long y'all been married? How many kids you got? Let me just crunch the numbers real quick... none. What, you firing blanks there, sport? ''[cup checks Miz]''\\\
Where we come from, if you fail, if you get knocked down, you just get back up and move on. If you guys so much as stumble, [[NeverMyFault you blame everybody else, it's never your fault, and there's always an excuse]]. And that type of attitude, you create this ego where you're unbeatable, unstoppable, untouchable, but Mike... that's not real, dude. And real is gonna punch you straight in the mouth [[Wrestling/WrestleMania this Sunday]].
** Roman Reigns tries to deliver one to him, and receives an epic one in return when Cena basically calls out what the entire world feels about Reigns.
--->'''Cena''': This (pointing at contract), this is the reason I came to Monday Night Raw, to be in this ring, face to face with the man who says he runs the yard. With the Big Dog. With The Guy... Ever since Roman Reigns has set foot in the ring, he hasn't just been the blue chip prospect. He has been the blue chip prospect that has been protected against anyone and everyone that steps in his path.\\
---\\
'''Cena''': They go back and forth with you, because when they look at you, they see what I see; a cheap-ass, corporately-created, John Cena bootleg. This chump right here, he ain't The Guy. Dude, you're just a guy. A guy trying so desperately to fill shoes that you never will.\\
---\\
'''Reigns''': The reason why they boo you, is because they see right through you. You're a phony. You're a yes man who can learn how to do anything, or be anything. So if you wrap all that up, you're just a fake bitch.... He's a part-timing, fake-ass bitch. And I'll be damned if I don't bust my ass Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, every single week, so you can hang out on the Today Show. Then jump on this big 'ol bus, and hell, maybe I'll come to a WWE show if they paid me enough. But what are you really gonna do, John? What are you gonna do, huh? You're gonna jump off that bus with that big ass shovel. That big shovel, that's what you're gonna do, and you're gonna bury as much young talent as you can. Because that's what you do right? That's how you stay on top of the mountain. You'll do anything. You're just a backstabbing shark, but the thing is the reason why you don't like me, what irritates you about me? You can't bury me John. You can't touch me. Hell I think this is fitting. I'm the one guy in the WWE that John Cena can't see. So now tell me this, why would I lessen myself, my legacy, my bloodline, to be the next John Cena, when I can be the one and only Roman Reigns?\\\
'''Cena''': You done? You see, because Roman Reigns is a fool. Roman Reigns is a damn fool. There's an old saying, it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid than open it and prove 'em right. You, of all people, you waltz down here and use the same pathetic excuse that every other single person before you has done. You, with all your gifts, and all your opportunities, you have the gall to blame me. That's fine, that's fine, Big Dog. Congratulations, it took you five years to cut a halfway decent promo but now I'm about to shrink you down to size.\\
OK, so everyone back there thinks I've got this mythical, golden shovel; that I've got this magical powers that I can control everything and keep everybody's fate. Dude, I can't tell if you're blind or stupid. Look and listen, they (pointing at crowd) hold the keys, they always have, they always will. But, you gotta blame me. Fine, I've been hearing the same racket for 10 years, and I ain't tired of it yet. I'm strong enough, I've been called a lot worse by a lot tougher. \\
But you actually believe that I'm a shark, that I hold everybody down, that I swim to the top and and keep 'em underwater at any and all costs. I haven't main-evented Wrestlemania in 5 years. I was the opening match at Summerslam. I was honored and privileged to earn the United States title at this stage in my career, and use it as a beacon of opportunity to introduce new superstars to the WWE like Wrestling/KevinOwens and Wrestling/AJStyles, just to name a few.\\
--\\
You took the US title as a demotion, and you stand there and blame me. Fine, I blame you. I'm still here because you can't do your job!\\
--\\
When it comes to this yard, you probably haven't learned it yet, there is only one rule: step up or step aside! And over the years, there's been a few to step up, but nobody could ever keep up!\\
--\\
And then I finally hear about this one guy, The Guy, ''The'' Roman Reigns, the one that can keep up... And now I look at ya, and I listen to ya... You should be ashamed I'm a part-timer, 'cause I can do this part time better than you could ever do at full time.

Ever since Roman Reigns has set foot in the ring, he hasn't just been the blue chip prospect. He has been the blue chip prospect that has been protected against anyone and everyone that steps in his path.\\
---\\
'''Cena''': They go back and forth with you, because when they look at you, they see what I see; a cheap-ass, corporately-created, John Cena bootleg. This chump right here, he ain't The Guy. Dude, you're just a guy. A guy trying so desperately to fill shoes that you never will.\\
---\\
'''Reigns''': The reason why they boo you, is because they see right through you. You're a phony. You're a yes man who can learn how to do anything, or be anything. So if you wrap all that up, you're just a fake bitch.... He's a part-timing, fake-ass bitch. And I'll be damned if I don't bust my ass Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, every single week, so you can hang out on the Today Show. Then jump on this big 'ol bus, and hell, maybe I'll come to a WWE show if they paid me enough. But what are you really gonna do, John? What are you gonna do, huh? You're gonna jump off that bus with that big ass shovel. That big shovel, that's what you're gonna do, and you're gonna bury as much young talent as you can. Because that's what you do right? That's how you stay on top of the mountain. You'll do anything. You're just a backstabbing shark, but the thing is the reason why you don't like me, what irritates you about me? You can't bury me John. You can't touch me. Hell I think this is fitting. I'm the one guy in the WWE that John Cena can't see. So now tell me this, why would I lessen myself, my legacy, my bloodline, to be the next John Cena, when I can be the one and only Roman Reigns?\\\
'''Cena''': You done? You see, because Roman Reigns is a fool. Roman Reigns is a damn fool. There's an old saying, it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid than open it and prove 'em right. You, of all people, you waltz down here and use the same pathetic excuse that every other single person before you has done. You, with all your gifts, and all your opportunities, you have the gall to blame me. That's fine, that's fine, Big Dog. Congratulations, it took you five years to cut a halfway decent promo but now I'm about to shrink you down to size.\\
OK, so everyone back there thinks I've got this mythical, golden shovel; that I've got this magical powers that I can control everything and keep everybody's fate. Dude, I can't tell if you're blind or stupid. Look and listen, they (pointing at crowd) hold the keys, they always have, they always will. But, you gotta blame me. Fine, I've been hearing the same racket for 10 years, and I ain't tired of it yet. I'm strong enough, I've been called a lot worse by a lot tougher. \\
But you actually believe that I'm a shark, that I hold everybody down, that I swim to the top and and keep 'em underwater at any and all costs. I haven't main-evented Wrestlemania in 5 years. I was the opening match at Summerslam. I was honored and privileged to earn the United States title at this stage in my career, and use it as a beacon of opportunity to introduce new superstars to the WWE like Wrestling/KevinOwens and Wrestling/AJStyles, just to name a few.\\
--\\
You took the US title as a demotion, and you stand there and blame me. Fine, I blame you. I'm still here because you can't do your job!\\
--\\
When it comes to this yard, you probably haven't learned it yet, there is only one rule: step up or step aside! And over the years, there's been a few to step up, but nobody could ever keep up!\\
--\\
And then I finally hear about this one guy, The Guy, ''The'' Roman Reigns, the one that can keep up... And now I look at ya, and I listen to ya... You should be ashamed I'm a part-timer, 'cause I can do this part time better than you could ever do at full time.

** Big Show himself has [[ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIn7k__fhmY stated]] that Cena is one of the three strongest wrestlers he's ever worked with. The other two being Wrestling/{{Kane}} and Wrestling/MarkHenry.
