I am not sure how That One Boss can be applied to a wrestler, and it's undetailed and YMMV anyway:
09:57:00 PM Mar 4th 2012
It's...an example FROM a wrestling video game.

I honestly think there's an Alternate Character Interpretation concerning Cena's bitterness towards Dwayne and his outside success, something he's been commenting on for a few years now. WWE tries making him into the next Rock by having him do TV, music, and spearheading the WWE Films division with films like "The Marine" and "12 Rounds." These ventures petered out rather quickly compared to some of Rocky's box office successes. Think about this: Cena once made a primetime appearance on Saturday Night Live, and practically no one knew who he was. Dwayne goes on Jay Leno or Regis & Kelly, instant recognition. If Cena had the same opportunities Rock did (3-4 months of making movies, pain-free) he'd, in all likelihood, be out the door in a heartbeat, with all due respect.

I realise is not-at-all timely, but if you feel so (and you're not alone, I've seen this idea raised in several other communities) feel free to put it up.

Can't we get a mod to unlock the page for a trail run, like for a few days? If the page get edited back and forth to much they can lock it again?
01:10:57 AM Sep 3rd 2011
It's a no-go. As the mods have said:

"Having a lot of edits locked out can strengthen the case for keeping something locked, if the edits are part of a flame war and/or are fan politics dressed up as tropes.

And this thread is edit requests for a locked page, not unlock requests"

"What he said. I am frankly sick to death of pro wrestling fans treating every fleeting moment of a broadcast as Serious Business that MUST BE DOCUMENTED ON TVTROPES AT ALL COST.

Can you guys get a grip on reality please?"
10:11:52 PM Oct 12th 2011
Apparently, it's unlocked now. Huh.
09:58:47 PM Mar 4th 2012
Funny how the 2nd mod's complaints about "pro wrestling fans" applies to virtually every single demographic on this site.

Probably just some pseudo-intellectual who thinks that he's too clever for rasslin'.
11:06:25 PM Aug 8th 2011
For anyone watching tonight 8/8/2011 would his speech be counted as a World of Cardboard speech? It was actually pretty touching in my opinion.
03:45:01 PM Aug 16th 2011
Agreed, it seemed so to me.
11:44:30 AM May 12th 2011
There is a thread called Edit request for Locked pages, I went there to see if anyone had posted anything about editing Cena's page, but as of now, no one has


I'm fairly new here so I wouldn't really know what tropes would be appropriate, so someone who knows what tropes is suitable, go there and put in a request

Seeing as his finishers have been renamed to be PG (F-U to Attitude Adjustment), perhaps it should be mentioned that one of his signature moves, the Five Knuckle Shuffle, is a big example of Getting Crap Past The Radar? (Five Knuckle Shuffle being a rather old euphemism for masturbation). I added it to the WWE character sheet, but I personally feel it should go to his own page/
05:05:28 PM Apr 30th 2011
Not that i disagree with the intent behind the 'like you would really do it' entry, but cena LOST at ONS 06.
10:24:37 PM Apr 6th 2011
The page needs to be changed a bit. The page is very much outdated, not mentioning his feud against The Rock and The Miz. It still cites The Miz as his Unknown Rival, even though Miz beat him at Wrestlemania.
07:31:38 PM Apr 7th 2011
This page has been locked for almost -a-year: isn't it about time to unlock it, staff?
05:38:11 PM May 12th 2011
Yeah, WHY is it still locked???
10:33:44 PM Jul 7th 2011
Okay, so much stuff needs to be added to this page and updated that it's not even funny. Seriously, even Michael Cole's page got more updates while his was locked.

Agreed, what exactly is the hold-up?
09:18:59 PM Mar 21st 2011
There are still subjective tropes on the main page. Are the admins able to move them even if the page is locked?
11:13:58 AM May 17th 2010
Apparently someone doesn't know squat about fans, fans being mentally unhinged and plants, and he's a Cena fanboy.
11:14:53 AM May 17th 2010
I'm dead serious. Give one single bit of evidence that the woman was a plant. And I love being called a fanboy for not completely shitting all over the guy.
11:15:40 AM May 17th 2010
As I said, it's not like WWE is going to come right out and say that she was a plant.
11:16:48 AM May 17th 2010
So wait, WWE not coming and saying she was a plant PROVES she's a plant? Do you not understand how that that doesn't work at all logically?
11:17:29 AM May 17th 2010
While it doesn't prove that she is, it doesn't prove that she isn't.
11:19:42 AM May 17th 2010
That's textbook Insane Troll Logic. Obviously you're a TNA plant. I have no proof you're not but since TNA hasn't come out and said you're not, you must be one. See how that doesn't make sense?
11:20:15 AM May 17th 2010
Funny, coming from a WWW, and an obvious Cena mark.
11:22:55 AM May 17th 2010
Of course because there are only two options aren't there? I can either loathe Cena with the hate of a thousand suns or I can worship him like a God. There's no way I can merely like the guy a little but completely shit all over the times when he does something awesome. Seriously this is fantastic. By being a fan of WWE I'm obviously a mark. Just brillaint.
11:24:36 AM May 17th 2010
Giving how bad it is, yeah. As a matter of fact, I quit watching, mainly due to Cena.
11:25:06 AM May 17th 2010
Well bully for you. Obvously nothing can be awesome anymore because you stopped watching it.
11:26:39 AM May 17th 2010
Once they ditch the PG era, I'll go back, and preferably once they remove the belt off of Cena. As the Spoony Bard deal says, the only thing Cena sells is merchandise.
11:28:37 AM May 17th 2010
He sells like crazy for Batista but that's nether here or there. Cena posing with his haters is awesome. If you disagree, hey that's fine. But CMOA is a subjective trope. Just because you disagree doesn't mean you get to delete an entry.
11:29:51 AM May 17th 2010
Not really, he might sell it for a few seconds, and then *wham* he gets back up like nothing happened, again, the only thing Cena sells is merchandise.

And as long as that post keeps going up, I'll keep removing it.
11:32:04 AM May 17th 2010
A) That's wrong and if you watched a match between him and Batista in the past few months you'd know that B) You can keep repeating what you saw on Botchamania all you want but it won't make you right. C) You don't get to delete CMOA's because you disagree with them.
11:34:16 AM May 17th 2010
The only thing that Cena sells is merchandise, and yes, I will keep deleting the line if it keeps getting added.

Cena knew very well that he wasn't going to be attacked, so that does not deserve to be up there.
11:35:47 AM May 17th 2010
Yes it does. Know why? Because it is my (and the troper who it up there in the first place) opinion that it does. You don't get to delete subjective tropes. Why can't you understand this?
11:41:25 AM May 17th 2010
Cena knew that he wasn't going to be attacked, so again, no, it does not deserve to be up there.
11:42:35 AM May 17th 2010
It has nothing to do with him expecting to be attacked. It has to do with him posing with people who hated him a big grin on his face. And again you don't get to decide whether or not it deserves to be up there. Subjective subjective subjective.
11:43:17 AM May 17th 2010
And again, he knew he wasn't going to be attacked, so he does not have balls of steel, so yeah, once the page unlocks, I'm deleting the line.
11:44:35 AM May 17th 2010
How about we compromise?
10:56:11 AM Jul 11th 2010
Is this the famous Larfleeze "compromise" that involves you getting your own way and the other Troper getting nothing?

You want to worship Cena this much, go make a Tripod shrine dedicated to him.

As an aside: do you have an account on the GameFAQs WWE Board? 'Cause you sure do remind me of a lot of the Cena fanboys there...
08:53:45 AM Apr 12th 2010
Can someome provide any kind of evidence that the WWE has told Cena what moves he can or can't use?

Otherwise, stop re-adding that line.
11:08:48 AM Apr 12th 2010
Seriously? Do you not understand how wrestling works at all?
08:38:50 PM Apr 12th 2010
I sure don't understand the thought processes of fanboys that do nothing but cheerlead for Cena.

Either find even an inkling of proof for it or stop adding the line.
03:25:49 AM Apr 13th 2010
Right we're done. The line stays. You're nothing more than some bitter anti-Cena fan.
03:36:28 AM Apr 13th 2010

I find the irony of you assigning labels to someone when your justification for deleting my first edit was "cry more" delicious due to the sheer hypocrisy.

Get a source for WWE telling Cena that he can't use more than half-a-dozen moves in a match or keep your fanboy worship outta here.

P.S. "Bitter" Really? What exactly would I be "bitter" about?
03:53:20 AM Apr 13th 2010
Attention janitors, there's a spill in the John Cena asile. Cleanup needed in the John Cena asile.
03:53:41 AM Apr 13th 2010
Do you seriously not get that wrestlers are told which moves they can and can't do?
04:07:12 AM Apr 13th 2010
I believe this is in fact the case for several wrestlers. I'm not sure whether or not Cena is among them, but he is the poorer for it if he is.

I am a completely unbiased and objective wrestling fan and believe Cena has been dumbed down in the past few years, so...well, I got two words for ya.
04:14:16 AM Apr 13th 2010
edited by Larfleeze
Its the case for nearly all wrestlers. Why do you think Evan Bourne and Gail Kim don't constantly do their "high risk" moves?
05:11:14 AM Apr 13th 2010
On the page itself, maybe we can do away with the fan dumb referrence. I don't think it's needed.
06:30:29 AM Apr 13th 2010
Of course it's not needed. Just like the part about the Mutants chanting "You still suck!" isn't needed. The Crazy Awesome entry was just about Cena actually making them shut up for a second which is damn near impossible if you're as hated as Cena is to the Mutants.
09:03:02 PM Apr 14th 2010
I think that the other dude had some fair points, even codenamehunterwolf agreed with him on parts of it whereas it seems like this Larfleeze fellow would just revert his edits out of spite complete with reasonings that basically come off as trolling.
08:20:11 PM May 21st 2010
I think wrestlers are probably told which moves they CAN'T do(to dangerous, someone else's spot, it'll get cheered and you're a heel) but otherwise it's up to the guys setting up the match.
