One of them was at least level headed, the other one was just plain ****ing stupid.
The entire thing went along the lines of this:
-Cena should get more air time and no ones cares about AJ. I say AJ is fresh and entertaining and Cena's had the same character for 7 ****ing years and that everyone needs change. Response to me: "AJ is boring and Cena is loved by billions!!!!" back & forth about how AJ is new and fresh and Cena has done the exact same **** for 7 years. I ask what's entertaining about Cena getting his ass kicked for 20 minutes to make a superman comeback in 2 minutes.
-Back and forth shifts to state of the WWE today. Girls say John Cena has made WWE cool again and is the greatest of all time. I tell them I grew up in the Austin era and I'd be damned if people say Cena is the greatest ever when I grew up watching Austin, HHH, Taker, Rock, Jericho, Hart, etc. some of the true greats and I bring up how Cena himself said he's a WWE superstar when it's not so cool anymore. I asked them why it's not cool anymore, and the obvious answer is Cena. Then they say Cena is the greatest and that she's watched since 2001 (yeah...) and is bringing WWE to levels it's never seen before.
-I, again, talk about the past. I bring up how WWE would've been so much better and "cooler" if WWE invested in pushing John Cena, but ALSO pushing other guys to be in the main event as well instead of reverting to Cena every single ****ing time and shoving him down everyone's throats. I talk about how not everyone likes the same thing and Cena is the only true "top" guy and he's catered to 4-13 year olds. I compare today to the Attitude Era when it wasn't just Austin on top, but there was Triple H, The Rock, Mankind, Kane, The Undertaker, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rikishi, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, etc. all on top or on the upper mid-card with these guys. I talked about how they were legitimate because the top guys put over the younger guys. I talked about how The Rock put Kurt Angle over at No Mercy 2000, which was Kurt Angle's first championship and first major rub. I talked about how Jericho went over Rock & Austin in the same night to become the first ever Undisputed champion. I talked about The Rock putting over The ****ing Hurricane (she didn't believe me...) in 2003.
-I said the WWE would've been a better place, and much better in terms of quality if WWE didn't give ONE guy a major push with the championship and instead, invested in pushing other talent to the top with him. I compared AE's main eventers to today. All the names mentioned above compared to... Cena, Punk and Sheamus as the only legitimate guys WWE has built up? Even Punk is debatable considering the whole storyline progression last year. At this point, the stupid girl left and stop tweeting me, but the back and forth continued on. Eventually it just waned out to where she said "John Cena is the greatest to me and made WWE cool. You don't have to agree but it's true. WWE is cool again." I bring up the ratings and PPV buys compared to when Austin was on the top, and after that, she just shut up, so I deleted the tweets.
It was a HUGE waste because I found out there's no getting through to these Cena fan girls. They're very, very narrow minded.
Thankfully, there are SOME intelligent WWE fans on twitter. I was talking to one just tonight about how fans react to superstars that WWE care about, like Ziggler nowadays who's getting some pretty good reactions. We also talked about Orton and Punk being watered down and Orton needing to turn heel and how every single face turns into a John Cena clone overtime.
