->They've always booked Wrestling/JohnCena the wrong way. They've always booked John Cena as the plucky underdog. And he's '''NOT.''' [[InvincibleHero He's indestructible.]] He's got a healing factor like fuckin' [[{{ComicBook/Wolverine}} Weapon X.]] They always push as the underdog when [[NegativeContinuity he's beaten everybody.]] He could ''easily'' beat everybody. [[NighInvulnerability He doesn't sell anything.]] But every single title match, every single main event, they always go one about how "the odds are stacked against him", how he's gonna "rise about the odds". Seriously. Every single one. He's gonna rise above these ''ker-razy'' odds, and somehow he does.

->Sam is still an annoying prick of a main character. This is a man who has the Transformers as best friends, has an underwear model as a girlfriend, and has been involved in several battles with an alien race. Yet in this movie he feels like he is owed more from everyone else and does nothing but bitch and moan about his [[{{Emo}} oh so horrible life]].

!!!On works
->''"For those of you who might be new, [[TheScrappy the dope with the glasses]] up there is Les Moore, who has gradually taken over the role of default protagonist from the strip's title character over the past forty years. This was pretty much cemented during a long-running, fan-favorite storyline where his wife, Lisa, died of cancer. Les would later write a book about the experience called ''Lisa's Story'' that would become his first and only success, almost making up for his first book, a complete flop about the murder of TV host John Darling, during which he actually [[AmateurSleuth solved the murder himself]] and revealed that it was a local plant-themed vigilante killing. You can see why nobody would want to read about that, I'm sure."''

->''"After two movies, I think I have a good idea of what my issue is with Creator/AndrewGarfield: he’s actually a pretty decent Spider-Man, but he’s an awful Peter Parker. Tobey Maguire, who’s gotten a lot of unfair flack since his series ended, had kind of the opposite problem, in that he was a great Peter Parker but only an okay Spider-Man. If you can only nail one of these, being a great Peter Parker is far more vital in the long run."''
