Kurt Angle says John Cena is the man

Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.com passed along an interview with former WWE and TNA star and now Class of 2017 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Kurt Angle discussing John Cena.

“John Cena is the man. I don’t know anybody else who has gone 13 years on top…I’m not going to say he’s was greatest athlete in WWE history, but he will go down as the greatest of all time in WWE history.”

Angle also listed Cena as one of his four picks to induct him into the Hall of Fame, including The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Steve Austin.

Former TNA star gets role in film

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed that former TNA star Thea Trinidad will be starring in the new “Fighting with my Family” cast about WWE star Paige and her family.

FINALLY… @theatrinidadtmt our #DivasChampion. Our @sevenbucksprod is proud to welcome Thea to our #FightingWithMyFamily cast! Casting the right woman to play our champion was critical. I wanted to keep the integrity of our movie’s authenticity. We had to find a woman who not only has a real star quality, but she also had to have a real reverence and love for our unique wrestling business. Thea has been working extremely hard for years on the independent wrestling circuit and for those who understand what that means – you know how much one has to love our crazy business to work independently for years. She has a star quality, great presence, humility and is always all about being, “the hardest worker in the room”. She’s working her butt off to put on an outstanding performance in our movie. Congrats, Thea and welcome to the cast. Let’s put in that work and move the crowd. #FightingWithMyFamily #TheaTrinidad #DivasChampion #SevenBucksProds #MisherFilms #Film4 #WWEFilms

  1. Its not dumb. Statistics such as merch sale and fan reaction. Noone is more popular than Cena. He’s not the greatest wrestler but you should know by now its not about wrestling

  2. Cena is the “man” only becos his merch sells the most and made VKM a lot of $$$$$$…
    When 1 day another superstar takeover his sales he will become just like any other man on the roster.

  3. Actually, Cena inducting Angle into the HoF would actually make quite a bit of sense. They both had really solid feuds against one another… AND… who was it that Cena faced off against on his first night on the WWE roster? Why… it was Kurt Angle of course! So as much as I hate to say it… yes… Cena SHOULD induct Angle.

  4. What did Hogan and Austin make for the company…table scraps? Kurt doesn’t know the difference between kayfabe booking and draw. Ratings have declined over the years with Cena as the face. If the guy is so great, why does Vince feel the need to keep bringing back 50 year old legends to wrestle at mania?

    He never had to do this with Austin and Rock.

  5. Getting booed out of every building is not a positive thing and several guys in the company sell a lot of merch, though Cena has the advantage of getting more merch made for him.

  6. Actually it IS a positive thing. A negative reaction is better than no reaction. No-one gets a bigger reaction than Cena. No-one is more in demand for media appearances than Cena. No one can get a crowd going and simply destroy people on this mic like he did to poor AJ Styles. In the business when tje fans don’t react.. Like they are doing for Cruiserweight matches then its time to worry.

  7. In Vince’s book they aren’t old guys they are big names who are known the world over who can sell tickets. John Cena alone can’t break ticket office and attendance records. No-one can do it alone . no one performer mid responsible for ratings. Hes not the only one on the show nor does he wrote for the program

  8. 1st: you’re 4 days late.

    2nd: i wasn’t trying to “put you in your place” and/or make you “sleepless”, but hey, if you don’t want to be corrected on your grammatical errors, then don’t make any.

  9. 1. I have better things to do …in the real world than come here and be corrected on the internet that affects my personal life in no way whatsoever.

    2. Usually people start making grammar corrections when they have nothing intelligent to respond with. Good job on being a stubborn egotistical loser.

  10. John Cena’s gimmick and booking has pushed many viewers away from the product because he and Vince are too stubborn or greedy in Cena’s case to make a drastic change. Slowly, viewership is declining every week.

    The reaction Cena is getting is not a kayfabe reaction and that is a bad thing. They are now doing the same with Reigns. If the ratings continue to decline, Vince will no doubt receive a call from the USA Network. Raw cannot survive on The Network if USA decides to drop them. It may not happen any time soon but if they continue down this route, it will become a reality.

  11. Austin and Hogan took wrestling to it’s peak. They were huge ratings grabbers. Cena is not. Viewership is declining every year and the merch argument does not hold much water when the guy gets more merch made for him than any other performer. Cena is an overrated wrestler and a draw who will never hold a candle to Austin,Rock or Hogan and were true megastars.
