    Well I mean Orton and Cena are champions.. oh yeah same guys, uh the last wwe champion was Cena, then Rock, uh, oh yeah same guys and nobody else, well the world title gets around, Orton and Sheamus, huh, same champions, *sigh* I guess I couldn’t prove you wrong, WWE just hands the same guys the same titles.

    at least WWE hasn’t put the world title around a celebrity yet like WCW did, but sadly I fear that when the muppets come back, Kermit the Frog will have his reign as champion *sigh*.

    Very well said.

    I agree, but Cena isn’t the only superstar in the locker room. This company is turnin into wCw and it’s the same champions over and over and over again. It makes the WHC look weaker bc if Cena doesn’t have it then is at the same level as the US and IC title.

    Since your other comment is awaiting moderation, i will reply to this one.

    Cena does wrestle a couple times of week and sadly will probably be a lifer in the business. The only reason Cena does not turn heel is make a wish. All of those kids that look to him for hope, Cena would never turn his back on that, although it hurts his in ring career, it just helps his life outside the ring that much more, if there was no make a wish, cena would turn heel, and I honestly think we would see the greatest heel turn and heel promos of possibly all time, maybe that is just me being too much of a Cena fan, but he has the ability to be a top level heel, but we will never truly know.

    I will never argue that Cena doesn’t love the business and works his ass off. He grew up a true fan like the rest of us. But as far as making the most money? I don’t know about that. Think Hulk Hogan from 1983 – 1993. Think Stone Cold circa 1997 – 2002. (Also because wwe over sells merchandise, toys, etc down the youths throat.) What if Hogan sold more than one color T-shirt. Think about it)
    But to compare Flair’s passion to Cena is hard to do. Times are different. Flair would wrestle 5 or 6 times a week every week for years. Every country, every territory. A true World Champion. When Cena is still relevant in wrestling conversations in 2035 then I’ll say OK, he’s the man.
    Most true fans hate his corny catchphrases and over the top try to be the top good guy too much act.
    I respect him. The make a wish kids, TV appearances, work ethic, helping younger talent, and what he does for pro wrestling by being a global star. Will I ever chear him? No. I’m too old school. When he grabs the mic, rips off his colorful t shirt and tells the fans to stick it, then I’ll cheer lol. Flair said a long time ago: “to be a good pro wrestler, you have to be a good face and better heal. That’s why Ricky Steamboat isn’t as remembered as he should be.”

    End of the history lessons for today

    Thanks for the list. I never really liked Flairs style of wrestling, so I am glad Cena will break the record, he deserves it, he loves the business, does the job well, and has made wwe the most money. I just dont understand why people complain about Cena winning the title, guess they are jealous.

    Del Taco did nothing for the title after his heel turn…

    everyone knows John will make the whc matter me the del taco ever could.

    Hate to say it, but Flairs reign at the top may be in jeopardy.Which means Cena may be sitting on top of the list for a long time. Not the biggest Cena fan, but Hear me out:

    6 (marked with *) of the top 10 are no longer active
    2 (Sting and Angle) probably don’t have enough time left in their careers
    1 has just 10. (Randy Orton) as much time as he disappears from the title picture, I doubt it.

    Ric Flair 16 *
    John Cena 14
    Triple H 13 *(technically)
    Hulk Hogan 12 *
    Kurt Angle 12
    Sting 12
    Edge 11 *
    Randy Orton 10
    The Rock 10 *(technically)
    Verne Gagne 10 *no longer active

    The only way it will gain momentum if the top star holds it, Cena. No offense to Alboring Burrito, but his reign was forgettable.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Somebody else said it first, but I love how there acting like Cena has been gone for along time and that the only way the WHC will gain momentum is only if Cena is involved in it.
