Not many differences between John Cena, Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is one of the most polarizing people in sports (if not the most) and he could find a kindred spirit in John Cena. I made the comparison between the two way back, but since Cena never changes his character and won't turn heel even though we're all begging for it, let's take a look once again.

And with Cena's name still a hot topic, thanks to his title shot with the Rock, we're going to find out just how similar he and Tebow are.

Category John Cena Tim Tebow Give it to ...
Height: 6-1 6-3 Tebow
Weight: 251 236 Cena
Hails from: West Newbury, Massachusetts Makati City, Philippines Tebow. What happened to the guys who were hailed from 'parts unknown?'
Current job: Professional Wrestler Quarterback (sorta) Push
Overexposed? Yes Yes Push
Any chance of it getting worse? Of course. You bet. Push. And yes, I recognize articles like this are part of the problem.
Is he technically proficient at his sport? No No Push. I'd say Cena is a little more proficient, but his flying shoulder block angers me more than it probably should.
Would he be a better fullback? Probably Yes Cena
Was he ever punched in the mouth by Brock Lesnar? Yes Unknown Tebow
Guy who took his job, or made him do the job: The Rock
 
Peyton Manning
 
Cena
Does he defy all odds to win? Yes Yes Push
Most prized individual title:
Nine-time WWE champion.

Heisman Trophy winner.
Cena. One's a fake, made-up title nobody takes seriously. The other is the WWE title.
Biggest competition: The Rock Mark Sanchez Cena
Overbearing boss: Vince McMahon Rex Ryan Push
Does he wear jorts? Yes Unknown Push. Tebow did go to Florida, so we shouldn't be so quick to assume he doesn't wear jorts.
Bad haircut? Yes No Tebow
Signature move copied by others:
You can't see me

Tebow
Most embarrassing toss: Fans throw back his T-shirt on "RAW." No way to narrow this down. Cena
And never bring up: "The Marine" His playoff loss to the Patriots. Cena. Nobody saw "The Marine."
Merchandise claim:
"Rise Above Hate" T-shirt best seller for WWE.

His jersey was at one time the No. 2 seller for the NFL.

Fan base: Cenation Tebowmaniacs Nobody
Most of his fans are ... Children Children Push
But his biggest fan is: My wife My wife Not me. In fact, I've been sleeping on the couch since Wrestlemania.
Fan chant: "Let's go Cena ... Cena sucks." "We want Tebow ... Sanchez sucks." Cena. I'm just imagining that's what Jets fans will be chanting.
Refuses to turn heel: Yes Yes Push. Both handle their haters the same way, with a smile -- which makes them more hated. But come on, a heel turn for both would be epic!
Often derided for: Dressing like a Fruity Pebble; being a good guy. Being a good guy. Tebow. I was going to make this a push, but Cena's new T-shirt looks too similar to Celtics' logo, so he's dinged here.
Guy you should be cheering for: Daniel Bryan Tebow Tebow. Seriously, why don't you like this guy?
Musical taste: Thuganomics Singing hymns on the sidelines. Tebow
Scandal:
Kissed his best friend's girlfriend.

How New York fans feel about him: MSG fans were among the first to turn on Cena. Can't wait to hear the boos at WrestleMania XXIX. Cautiously optimistic. Tebow


 

And the winner? I knew it, they are the same guy. It's deadlocked at 9-9. Although, I still won't root for Cena.

If you remember The Rock from his days as a defensive tackle for the University of Miami (or if you’re a huge CFL fan), then you’ll probably enjoy this Who tweeted it: RG3 or The Rock?
