RAW fans use Rollins and Lesnar to send Cena a message

John Cena has been one of the more controversial superstars in the WWE for a long time now.

When his music hits, it will normally depend on where in America you are that decides what reaction he will receive.

When up by his home in the New England area, Cena gains a great reception and most other areas it does vary.

He may have been the most successful superstar in recent years and one of the few constants in the WWE in the last 12 years, but there is something strange about Cena.

Maybe because his sayings are overtly aimed at children, maybe because he doesn't really ever offer anything new, whatever the reason, the leader of the Cenation is in an interesting situation right now.


RAW was in Minneapolis, Minnesota tonight and began with Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan in the ring as the special guest host of the final show before Christmas.

Cena soon joined the legend in the ring and it was the actions of the Minnesota crowd during the segment that may send a message to Cena.

Rollins and Lesnar show a problem

Seth Rollins has quickly risen to become the top heel in the WWE right now and he has been feuding with Cena for the last few weeks.

There is very little that Rollins could do to get a cheer from the crowd but in his promo with Cena tonight, he managed it.

Even more significantly, he got the crowd to cheer when he told Cena that everyone was sick of listening to him.

Whilst Rollins getting a cheer off of him is quite significant, there was another moment on tonight's show that sends a big message.

Cena began to talk about the man who attacked him last week and who he will face at the Royal Rumble, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.

When Cena was discussing the Beast Incarnate, the crowd broke out in a chorus of 'We want Lesnar!'

Lesnar has been a heel for the majority of his WWE career but in 2014 he really has earned a lot of fan hatred.

He ended the Undertaker's undefeated streak earlier this year at WrestleMania, but it was Summer Slam where he began to earn the WWE Universe's annoyance.

When Lesnar beat Cena to win the title, he then wasn't seen for a few weeks and it took Cena kidnapping Paul Heyman to draw the beast out.

Lesnar would then beat Cena by disqualification at Night of Champions and then once again do a disappearing act.

This time leaving for three months and only returning on last week's RAW, Lesnar became the biggest annoyance to the WWE Universe.

If the WWE Universe would rather your opponent who is not very well liked than you, there is likely to be an issue for you.

Everyone expects the match between Cena and Lesnar at the Royal Rumble to be the final battle between the two and I think that would be the right move to finally move the title away from Cena.
