Default Who is Impact Wrestling's ''John Cena''?

simple question, WHO IS THE ''JOHN CENA'' or ''company man'' of TNA/IW.y?

For me, Aj StyleZ. AJ Stylez was the only reason why i started watching TNA in 2005. This guy(and Chris' Daniels) made me think TNA was better then WWE for a while. all of AJ's matches was picture perfect, it was a work of art. AJ Styles vs Chistopher Daniels vs Samoa Joe is probobly one of the greatest triple threat matches i have ever seen. Spot after Spot, every 30 seconds i found myself ''blushing'' as i was falling in love(lol, romantic). Espessially AJ styles vs christopher daniels iron man match. i believe it actually could be on the on the same level as HBK vs Bret. AJ is great in the ring, super athletic, can go from a ground game to flying in the air. Great technission. To me AJ Stylez might come close to the tittle ''best wrestler in the world''. I mean if you compare AJ Styles to CM Punk, AJ makes punk look like john cena in the ring.(CM punk makes AJ look like evan bourne on the mic, ) The only talent that could be the company man other than styles would be sting. robert roode and James storm are not there just yet, but soon.

So who would you consider to be TNA/IW's #1 guy?

I don't think they have a John Cena. That's one of IW's biggest problems. I think they're pushing James Storm to be that guy, but it's gonna be a long journey, as he is far from a #1 guy right now. I think at next year's BFG Storm will win the belt and go on to be the main guy. However IW management has ADD and might forget about his push.

Is this a real question? Obviously if TNA had a Cena it would be obvious. TNA is basically an indie promotion on steroids. There is no major star in the company other than Hogan. And trust me Hogan is not a TNA company man.

^That's bullshit. TNA has plenty of star power. They don't have a Cena, but there's only been 3 other guys in wrestling history that have been bigger than Cena. And there might not be another one in either company.

Explain to me who else the WWE has been able to get to Cena's level with all of their exposure and resources over the past 8 years?

They don't have a John Cena. They have AJ Styles, who is nowhere close to John Cena, but it's what they got

I'm not sure they will ever really have a John Cena. And don't say Sting or Kurt Angle, to me the "Cena" is someone who started off a nobody, and built himself up to this mega start. Kurt Angle and Sting were huge before TNA, maybe not the theme of a kids birthday huge, but still a big name to the wrestling business

TNA has a lot of star power? Really? Who? Kurt Angle and thats it. If there is so much star power why dont more people watch? Stars draw numbers, merchandise sales, publicity? Where are these stars? And by the way mugshots and arrest reports don't count as publicity.

They don't have one. It's not really a knock on TNA either. After the Rock left the WWE didn't have that John Cena / Hulk Hogan / Stone Cold type either. You can ask who TNA's top guy is, but there's nobody there who could be called their John Cena. Some people seem to think it's easy to create a top level star, but if it were the WWE would be turning them out left and right.

I'm guessing you're one of these people that like to seize TNA's ratings as a chance to pass yourself off as an expert on pro wresting. This ratings obsession is out of control. Since TNA does 1.0s that means nobody on the roster's a star? Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Hogan and Sting. None of those guys have any appeal?

By that logic nobody in the WWE (besides Cena) is a star either because every big name on the roster besides Cena has been moved over to Smackdown to help bring the ratings up. CM Punk, Randy Orton, Triple H, Undertaker, Batista, Chis Jericho, among others have gone over in the draft. Yet three years in a row, Smackdown has average in the high 1s in the ratings. If Randy Orton is a star, why didn't Smackdown's ratings go up last year when WWE decided the build the show around him?

As for Raw, ratings are declining for the 3rd year in a row, WWE brought the Rock back. Did he increase ratings? No. Did he help their Survivor Series buyrate? No.(That was the Miz's fault....) Did he increase their Wrestlemania buyrate? Early reports say no. They brought Lesnar back, has he increased ratings? No. They made Raw a supershow, meaning everyone on both rosters are on the show, and they still can't reverse RAW's steady decline in the ratings. So where are all the stars in the WWE?

Wow i guess guys like AJ styles Bobby Roode james storm Jeff hardy are not starts huh? Samoa Joe Kaz,Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, not stars huh. Anderson! Listen Tna probably wont be on WWE's level WWE/WWF/WWWF has been around for like 50 plus years!! TNA has been around barely 10!! TNA as of late has been putting on quite the fucking show and some of their matches are better than the WWE's. Give TNA some time its going to grow and they will move out of the impact zone.
