So, if you've known me for any length of time and care about professional wrestling at all, you'll know about my long-standing, absolute loathing of John Cena (although he has had his entertaining moments lately). But that's not what this is about.

Apparently, Cena has adopted a new finishing maneuver in house shows and elsewhere. One that if you were around for the attitude era, you'd recognize instantly: the leg drop bulldog. More commonly known by the name given it to by Billy Gunn when he used it: The Famouser aka The Fame-ass-er.

This move has not been used much, if at all on TV by Cena to my knowledge, as the usage of such of a move is too much for network TV and even cable to handle. Just hinting at the possibility of the usage of a move on a PPV poster would sell more tickets to it than Wrestlemania III and VII combined.

I wish I could show you a clip of said move. It really is Cena's secret weapon. It devastates opponents, makes fangirls and boys orgasm in their seats, and even softens the heart of the smarkiest Cena-hater (at least for a moment). But alas, it is not to be found as even the shortest, poorest quality clip of this move would overwhelm the most powerful servers in the world in a matter of seconds.

Just it being performed at a small house show is nearly too much. The impact of this move on a mat in Pennsylvania can be felt as far away as Japan, just slightly. Just enough that the enlightened ones will pause for a moment, nodding their heads before screaming at the top of their lungs in whatever language they speak (even if they've never seen wrestling before: "OH MY GOD! John Cena with a FAME-ASS-ER!" before passing out from the excitement of the thought.

So, yes, for that tiny moment, when he performs that earth-shaking finishing maneuver, John Cena does, in fact, reek of AWESOMENESS!!!

I love John Cena! I love how he set Vickie's ass up with the camera. Haha, he blackmailed the hell out of that ass just for his title rematch! You gotta admit that that's a little bit of genius.

Since he changed the names to his current finishers (which I really don't like/haven't gotten used to yet), I would really like to see this move!! :D

He does his from the top rope.
He often uses it as a set up for the STF(U).
He used it to defeat the Great Khali at Judgement Day two years ago. He recently used it on Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton and attempted but botched a double-famouser on HBK and somebody.
There's video of the ladder on youtube.

He also uses it as a signature from the corner on SvR 2009.

I'll see if I can find you the link.

I'm so happy Renee finally recognized Cena's greatness and the immortality of the Famouser...even if I had to pay her $40 to do it :)

Found it!

Wrong! That's not a famouser, it's just a leg drop. Compare that to Billy Gunn's version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMcHHn5Lvuc

Yes, that is a TOP ROPE Famouser.
Khali had to be on his knees because of his hieght.
I've seen Cena perform a full fledged famouser on Cody Rhodes, Shawn Michaels, JBL, Jericho and Edge.

In fact, he used the famouser on Jericho when he beat him for the title the first time.

It's also a move of his in SVR09.
His version is a top rope famouser.
