According to, the WWE Creative team is weighing the option of turning a massive superstar heel and making them the leader of the Nexus, the faction comprised of the former WWE NXT season 1 Rookies. The stars in the running are Triple H, who is currently inactive due to injury, and, surprisingly, John Cena.

Cena would be coming at a huge risk, as John Cena currently makes the most for the WWE in merchandise and is extremely over with the fans. It would also be tough to explain why the Nexus has been beating him down the last couple weeks if he were their leader.

Triple H, on the other hand, has nothing going on storyline-wise at the moment, except for his return and feud against Sheamus. But, this has currently been put on hold as HHH is currently recuperating from surgery on a tendon in his upper arm, which will keep him out of action for at least two more months.

HHH had been talking to creative about a heel turn sometime after Wrestlemania XXVI, but, as the company was heel heavy at the time, the idea was put on hold.

Bell's Analysis: I think it's a good idea to have Triple H turn heel, but not Cena. Cena, as much as I hate him and his gimmick, makes way too much money for the WWE and plays a face too well.

One the other hand, Triple H can afford to have a heel turn and I would love to see him return to his Attitude Era glory days as a badass with a sledgehammer. A heel turn would be good for him as his career winds down.
