10 Embarrassing Times Wrestlers Tried To Be Funny
If you were sat down and forced to watch three randomly-selected weeks of Super Cena's run, would you f*ck pop for his return.
You would boo the man out of the building and hope he'd never return. John Cena as the top star of RAW was utterly harrowing. You'd rather iron the tip of your c*ck than endure it a second time.
On the post-No Way Out 2012 RAW, John Cena recapped his Steel Cage main event against the Big Show using a Star Wars analogy. He claimed the cage was a "death star" in which he had to fight "Show Vader", a "Jedi" who had switched to the dark side. At stake was the job of the emperor, John Laurinaitis, and when Show Vader lost, the "ancient old Jedi Yoda McMahon" said "no chance in hell have you, fired you are".
John Cena thought this was a stitch, when, in reality, the promo died a death. Several new religious movements of the late 20th century had a more voracious appetite for life than the fans stuck in that arena. They groaned like Triple H scouring Showbuzz Daily when Cena ran through his Yoda and Vader impressions.
At least if he'd impersonated a different Vader, his sh*t might have looked halfway legitimate.
