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, 'cos I can do this part time better than you could ever do at full time.

'''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 other every 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 here for I reckon 10 years, and I ain't tired 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 Kevin Owens and AJ Styles, 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.

** While his ReasonYouSuckSpeech promo duel against Wrestling/RomanReigns was largely a CurbStompBattle in his favour, quite a few people criticised the part where he dismissed Roman's accusations that he had a "golden shovel" by saying "they ''(pointing at crowd)'' hold the keys, they always have, they always will". Considering this was ''[[CreatorsPet John Cena]]'' saying this to ''[[CreatorsPet Roman Reigns]]'', the general response from people who pay ''any'' attention to WWE booking recently was "Are you serious?!"

** 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?\\\

* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Multiple heels have persuaded him to forgo his code, with some even arguing that it's become little more than pandering at this point. While he usually does develop more of a mean streak during the programs this takes place in, he always refuses the FaceHeelTurn out of respect for the fans who support him for who he is.

** He's also this to an improbable extent in real life; despite being hated by tons of fans and remaining a controversial figure for almost a decade, he never shows ill will towards his detractors (compare Wrestling/RandyOrton, who couldn't help but give the fans the finger out of frustration when he was booed ''for one match''). Additionally, he's squeaky clean outside the ring, never gets involved with legal troubles or tumultuous relationships, lives for charities (he's literally a record-breaking Make-a-Wish Foundation contributor, having granted more wishes for the organization than anyone since its founding), and is a consummate professional at pretty much all times. He's the definition of what a company wants from their poster boy, which may explain why he's been on top of WWE for so long.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Before he settled into his wholesome babyface image, some of his promos in the mid-2000s can qualify as this. For example, in his promo the night after New Year's Revolution 2005, he told the fans who didn't like him to "kiss his ass", something the John Cena we all know now would never say.

** Most recently, after losing to Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura on SmackDown Live for the right to face Wrestling/JinderMahal for the title on SummerSlam, he raises his hand and also bows to Nakamura (who returned it).

** Despite [[GracefulLoser losing to him in the end]], Cena showed Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura total respect after their match on Wrestling/WWESmackdown and absolutely put Nakamura over like a man.
