I'm sure that 99 percent of us can agree on this one. John Cena needs to to turn heel. He has been a good guy for over five years. We are dating back to the second half of 2003 after his feud with Brock Lesnar.
Readers, really think about it, It's pure genius.
Of these five years that he has been heel, he was only cheered for maybe a year of that. After his first run-in with Chris Jericho (when Cena sent him into brief retirement) fans started resenting him big time. The Cena Hater club began to grow larger by the weeks.
I want you to realize that John Cena has become the hero for the majority of our pre-teen wrestling fans. We can't deny that our women and children love this guy. I can't count how many Cena action figures my little brother has in his toy box. Not even gonna mention what the women say about this guy.
Vince McMahon has a hell of a opportunity on his hands. Think about how big Hulk Hogan was to the kids and to everyone. HulkaMania was running wild. Eric Bischoff took advantage of something that Vince McMahon couldn't even think of at the time. Turning Hulk Hogan heel.
After he leg dropped Savage, fans took it personally. Fans were getting out of hand, garbage was flying everywhere and people were being thrown out.
Hulk Hogan became one of the biggest bad guys in that era of professional wrestling.
Vince McMahon gets a second chance at a past missed opportunity (although not nearly as big). And the day that it happens. The children will be crying, and wanting answers to why and how could their hero do this. Then and only then will the loyal wrestling fans truly except him.
Now I'm not at all saying that Cena's turn is going to be as big the Hulkster's was, but looking back at what that did for him, it will truly be big for Cena.
And That Is True! (To Steal a Line from Kurt Angle)
