— John Cena spoke to students at Baker High School in Baldwinsville, New York on Friday prior to a WWE live event in nearby Syracuse. While there, he discussed how he markets himself in the business world and how he conducts his life away from it.

“I think, in this day and age, too many athletes say ‘I play a game for a living.’ They have to realize millions of people are watching and following them…their every move,” Cena said.

    A lot of people knows that… Is like the real mean of CM in CM Punk, is not ‘Chicago Made’ by the way… Edge had that name in the indies for some time, there’s even surviving t-shirts of that time with “I Love Sexton Hardcastle” on them…

    Check out Lynns matches with Rob Van Dam from ECW back in the late 90’s.
    He had huge ability. They regularly wrestled for over half an hour, at a pace that most guys couldn’t maintain for 5 minutes. If he had been better used by WWE, he had the ability to go to the top.

    @Bill
    Actual knowledge or did you google it?

    I aint sayin… Im just sayin…

    @Marvin – the name change wasn’t so cryptic as the message he posted, which was just plain wacko.

    @Buddy – I remember. When Anarchy used to ‘Rulz’

  • Marvin

    What is so cryptic about a name change, do you even know what cryptic means?

  • Bill

    @Sexton, you’re name is one of Edge’s first in-ring names.

  • Diesel

    @Buddy well it wouldn’t be the first time that WWE did that, look at guys like Taz, Raven, Mike Awesome and WCW main stars stars like DDP, they pretty much got turned into glorified jobbers and Vince single handedly killed theoir careers dead just because he’s bitter.

    @buddy

    I remember…. I dont like to because it makes me sad to remember when being a wrestling promotion meant something. Now i’m not new to the site by any mean, but i still felt you should know some one out here DOES know who/what your talking about.

    And also not many people know enough about wrestling history to know who my name is paying homage to (excluding CC). The funny thing is, Ive been using I’ve been using this name long before any one thought of paying any thing to this WRESTLER!

    I aint sayin… I’m just sayin….

  • D Hawk

    You know you people claim cena sux and all….but was hogan in the 80’s any fucking different. Take a beating “hulk up” hit his 3 moves and win the match. People say hogan was important to wrestling but cena is just what Vince makes him

  • Starship Pain

    Well, Cena, millions of people watch your five moves ha ha ha

  • venom

    All Jerry Lynn did in WWE was wrestle for The Lightheavyweight championship against Jeff Hardy. Jerry Lynn was mostly on Sunday Night Heat. I didn’t see anything special with him. He was just another wrestler with long hair in the 90’s.

  • Buddy

    gotta love how they mention Jerry Lynn as a former “star” – speaking of, WWE totally dropped the ball when they brought him in by basically ignoring everything he was and did in ECW.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaand i just showed my age right there (most of the new marks on this site will have NO clue who/what i’m talking about! :) )

  • venom

    Yea, Traver will probably be released soon. I didn’t realize Mark Henry was that old. I don’t think he’ll be world champion before he retires.

  • Will Henderson

    i can see him being released. in fact, i bet his release press release will be posted on WWE.com this week.
