Taking Cena as an example since he was mentioned: I honestly think he is (or, at least, can sometimes be) more than a competent worker... it's just that he wrestles a totally different style of match. Say if you take a classic Cena match - say, for example, his last man standing match against Umaga - and imagine rebooking it with Mike Quackenbush or Naomichi Marufuji or someone like that in his place... it just won't work. It would be like saying The Dark Knight would be a better film if it were directed by Akira Kurosawa, although that style is completely inappropriate for the typical Batman-viewing audience.
I think what WWTNAmark was trying to get at is: being a fan of technical wrestling doesn't make you superior, it just makes you a different kind of mark.
