The IWC has been calling for a John Cena heel turn for a while now, but the debate over its probability has escalated exponentially ever since it was announced that he would be facing none other than the Rock, one of the most popular superstars in WWE history, in his home town at WrestleMania XXVIII.
John Cena is going to be booed out of the Sun Life Stadium. Might as well turn him heel, right?
A whole lot of us thought it would finally happen at Survivor Series, as Cena's tag match with Rock against Awesome Truth seemed the "perfect opportunity" for a heel turn.
Well, as we all know, it didn't happen.
But thanks to Kane, everyone is foaming at the mouth for a Cena heel turn once again.
As Kane told Cena in his wonderfully metaphysical promo at the end of this week's episode of RAW, "Hate is the seed from which we are all born." He counseled Cena, "Once you embrace the hate, you become honest with yourself. You become free."
This is clearly the start of a Cena heel turn.
Or is it?
Obviously, WWE is still worried they have a lot to lose by turning Cena heel. Despite CM Punk's surge in popularity, Cena is still their biggest draw—after all, he remains the face of the entire company.
But then why the "Cena Sucks" shirts? Why leave him off of TLC?
If Cena isn't turning heel, then what's going on? Here are three possible answers to that question.
