John Cena wanted to have some fun with the Philadelphia crowd during WWE’s live broadcast of “Raw” on Monday night, and he knew exactly where to turn. Part of a wrestler’s job is to know the audience and find ways to get under its skin. Cena accomplished that by making a Donovan McNabb reference.

Cena is scheduled for a rematch against The Rock on April 7 at Wrestlemania. The two fought last year at the same event, with The Rock coming out on top. According to our friend Spike Eskin of CBS Philly, Cena gave the following response when asked what it would be like to lose to The Rock again.

“Donovan McNabb, Donovan McNabb,” Cena said as the crowd booed. “Statistically Donovan McNabb is the greatest quarterback ever to put on an Eagles uniform. But Mick [Foley], listen to how the people in the city that he played for remember him. Why? Because Donovan McNabb could not win the big one. Philadelphia cares about its teams. Philadelphia cares and has passion. And with that type of passion, they deserve someone who can win the big one. If I lose on April 7th, I will carry the legacy of Donovan McNabb.”

Cena’s right. McNabb went to six Pro Bowls and led the Eagles to the NFC Championship Game five times. He was 1-4 in those games, losing in the Super Bowl to the Patriots the one year the Eagles did advance. Veteran quarterbacks have questioned McNabb’s work ethic, but it’s also possible he was just the victim of some bad luck. In any event, quarterbacks who fail to win a ring will always be criticized. Cena did a good job of opening some of those wounds in Philly on Monday.

  • I suppose Eagles fans still wish they had drafted Ricky Williams instead?
    I will never understand the hate this player has gotten, he has been a great QB. He does indeed have the numbers to back it up. He fell short in the big game, but made it five times to the nfc Championship. Most teams wish they had that problem.
  • Yes, we do - We would have won the same amount of superbowls with ricky..and that's all that matters, not who's the best loser..u dope
  • Come on, the guy was puking like a sorority girl at the frosh party on the field. He obviously spent more time partying and less time preparing for the game. Not to mention he only hit a receiver in stride like 4 times during his whole Eagles career.
