    Anyone predicting a Cena heel turn? *WM Spoilers*

    I thought Cena was going to do a heel turn when he was in the storyline with Kane. Perhaps losing to Rock is going to set Cena over the top and he's going to take the advice of Kane and Rowdy Roddy Piper and become a heel. I can see a heel Cena beating The Rock in a rematch.

    Re: Anyone predicting a Cena heel turn?

    It's been suggested by just about everyone from time to time. While I think the circumstances are perfect, and the timing itself is great, I don't know how I'd feel about it. Cena has already won a lot of supporters that used to be cynics throughout this year, so the idea of him needing to turn heel to win people over is becoming less relevant and bit invalid. I'd enjoy seeing him having a run as a heel, but only if there was a good payoff to his heel streak, and he doesn't sell out his current persona, childish as it may be. I think a test run starting immediately and leading up to SummerSlam would be the best way for WWE to test the waters. If merch sales drop or something dramatic happens that seems to be a bad omen, they can always have him back in his face position before the WWE's bigass paycheck is due to arrive at WrestleMania.

    Cena WILL NOT TURN HEEL. He had MAJOR opportunities with Punk, Kane and Rock and he STILL didn't turn. It's not going to happen it's time to give it up.

    Re: Anyone predicting a Cena heel turn?

    Good thing we got the spokesperson for WWE's creative team here to tell us what will and won't happen. Glad you could take time out to speak to us about what you and your staff have in order for the upcoming months.

    No, but seriously... I think as much as people disregard the possibility (granted there a ton of blind believers), it's still VERY possible. Before, I think the issue was that there was no one to make up for the merch sales that they'd lose, but at this point, Punk has been built up and is more of a hardcore face than Cena, plus Orton has been going strong for the past year and a half at least. So I think now more than ever, WWE are prepared if they have to turn him heel, even for just a little while.

    As great as Punk and Orton have been Cena is still WWE's Number 1 guy. And while he is I don't believe he will turn Heel.

    Re: Anyone predicting a Cena heel turn?

    I think its possible, right now it'd make for a pretty good storyline. I'd like to see Cena just shrug it off at first, doing promos that basically say "oh yeah well I'm still here and Rock still left" blah blah blah. But then its obviously getting to him, but also put him on a losing streak. And slowly he starts to get frustrated and angry and finally snaps and goes hardcore heel. I could see it working well.
    But I won't be at all surprised if they just don't do anything and keep him how he is.

    Cena made the company around 250 million dollars last year on merchandising sales, so they would be pretty stupid to change something. They will milk this cash cow until it runs dry. If he drops below 20 millions, they might start thinking about it.

    Re: Anyone predicting a Cena heel turn? *WM Spoilers*

    Now can I see a heel turn is the question and my answer is yes. This is the perfect time to do a heel turn and it would work. Now do I think they are going to turn him heel, no. I think they will tease it to see where it would go, but will eventually not turn him until he is not selling anything and everyone hates him.

    Like everyone else has said. Now is the perfect time to turn him, and I think it could work well. But I don't see it actually happening.

    Heel is a little too strong of a word. More of a whatever I want attitude for sure though. As seen last night with him taunting the Rock before the loss, more of that Cena to come. But full out heel Cena is just not going to happen.

    No, I think he'll remain a face and will be in a storyline with Lord Tensai or even reignite his feud with Kane.

    Not only do we have a member of Creative, we have a member of the marketing division with us.

    Cena is already a heel with half the audience, why bother alienating the other half with a full blown turn?

    And even if he does turn, he'd just get cheered by the adults so it would be counter-productive.

    Exactly.

    Face or heel, it's not like he doesn't get booed as it is.

    And when he get's his ass kicked, more than half the crowd goes crazy. Like last nights Raw? Or Mania?

    He's perfect as he is for being able to be face and draw to the younger crowds and sell merch, and being able to be booed at the same time and have the crowd enjoy him loosing.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I wonder how many times Cena has to make it perfectly clear he isn't turning before people stop making these threads.

    Never underestimate the lure of wanting to feel smart for correctly calling the John Cena heel turn ahead of time, the one turn that just isn't happening for a good long while.

    It's a public company that has to give out numbers for f'cks sake. Go read the numbers yourself.

    The company tells you how exactly much Cena merchandise they sell over the year?

    It was just estimated I don't think WWE ever releases official sales figures.
