    Love it! Sorry, IWC. You’ll just have to whine another few years about how Cena needs to turn heel. In the meantime, he’ll be making WWE money with a positive message.

    I wonder if John Cena himself shops at Kmart?

  • Hercules Rockerfeller

    YES! YES! YES! I CAN’T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON THE NEW JOHN CENA APPAREL! I WILL BE THE ENVY OF ALL NY OTHER VIRGIN FRIENDS! WOOOOHOOOO!

      I love how IWC Cena haters use this line. Cena’s fans, aside from kids, are MOMS and DADS. It’s one thing to dislike a stale character. But those of you who simply hate what the character stands for are stay-at-home 25-year-old sons who can’t get a job nor a classy girlfriend/wife. Keep living vicariously through the Attitude Era. Women don’t look for immature tools with no future. Nobody asks you clowns to root for Cena. Just try to tone down your lack of class.

        And what’s even funnier is that IWC Cena haters will call Cena corny or PG but these are the same people who will camp out in the parking lots of movie theaters too wait for Star Wars or Harry Potter to hit the big screen, these are also the same people in HS who had to take overweight younger sister to the prom because they couldn’t get a date and the same people now who work at the Dollar General and still live in their mom’s basement

      So you are a virgin, I knew it. When you die there will be a bunch of Muslim terrorist up in heaven waiting to rape you lol. But on a more serious note, for someone who claims to hate Cena or not care about Cena you sure do spend a lot of time commenting on his every move. Did Cena snub you at a autographic session or something or knock over your pepsi as he was walking by?

      • H.M.

        I’m a Muslim and I find your response to be ludicrously ignorant not only of Islam as a whole, but of Cena ‘haters’. I get the reaction to the rather rabid members of the IWC who do dominate the community; that doesn’t however warrant such idiotic counter remarks. You’re only stooping to their level. It’s very childish.
