What's Next for Superman: 10 Things John Cena Has Yet To Do in the WWE
IWC, sorry to say but there are still 10 things John Cena has not done in the WWE.
John Cena has been dubbed "Superman" because of all his TV time and his WWE accomplishments which he racked up in such a short time—and also the fact that no athlete, no matter how big or small, can get a clean victory against WWE's poster boy.
John Cena has won multiple World Titles, Tag Titles and the US Championship. He has also won the Elimination Chamber twice and has won a Royal Rumble, as well as being the sole survivor in many Tag Team elimination matches—the list goes on and on.
Some may argue that Cena is stale and has nothing else to do in the WWE, but I want to prove them wrong.
I have started to dislike him (I used to hate him, so this shows that I think he is improving) and not because of my love for Nexus or his desperate cries for sympathy. It is because he has been kept out of the World Title picture for a while and has been helping Wade Barrett turn into the star we see every Monday night on RAW.
Cena may not be the best in-ring wrestler currently in the game—as a matter of fact he is not even in the top five—but recently he has been improving with drop kicks and has shown us that he can really work on a body part and make his opponent weak and vulnerable before he gets the win with the "AA."
Here are 10 things we have yet to see Cena do in the WWE.
Challenge The Undertaker's Undefeated Streak at WrestleMania
What WWE Legends have done this?
Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Edge, Kane and many more.
Would a lose harm John Cena's reputation?
Not Really. As I said, Michaels, Flair and so many more attempted to end the infamous streak, and they are still considered some of the greatest players in the game.
At WrestleMania 25 he defeated Edge and The Big Show in a thrilling match which saw Cena lift both men off the ground at the same time for the Attitude Adjustment.
At WrestleMania 26 he defeated Batista in a huge match which was entertaining and gave us what I thought was a suprising result.
Cena has been on a roll at the last two WrestleMania, so a lose to the Deadman would not harm him at all.
What would a win do for John Cena's Reputation?
For anyone to be able to claim they beat the Deadman is amazing, but to be able to say you defeated him at WrestleMania? Well, that is just phenomenal.
A win would also gain a lot of fans' support, as this is something Cena lacks from time to time.
Win The Intercontenental Championship
What WWE Legends have done this?
How would Cena winning this title help him, the title or anyone else?
It would show that he is open and able to win any title and not just the World Title as many probably think.
Do you remember last year when Jericho and Rey were fighting for the title? Did that not make the title seem more important and credible?
What are the chances of Cena winning that title any time soon?
Very slim, considering he is all wrapped up in the current Nexus angle, and tension between Orton and Cena is sky high which means a feud between both men may be coming.
Another reason is obviously because the title is currently on the opposite brand from Cena's and held by Dolph Ziggler, who does not seem to be letting go of that title any time soon.
Win a King Of The Ring Competitor
What WWE Legends have done this?
Kurt Angle, Steve Austin, Owen Hart and more.
How would this victory help him?
Considering he is the WWE poster boy, does that not mean that a nickname like "The King Of The Ring" would automatically stick and keep with him for a while?
He could get a victory over someone like CM Punk or Kane (top heels who he has rarely battled).
This may help build up fan support, or it could twist and go the complete opposite way, leaving Cena more hated than ever and accused of assisting in the demise of these key superstars.
Take Out Nexus!
What WWE Legends have tried to do this?
Chris Jericho, Bret Hart, Mark Henry and more.
Let's just face it: We have been waiting for this day since SummerSlam after Cena practically took out Nexus. If Barrett wins the World Title and their leader and plans are announced, what else have they got going for them?
I am a massive fan of Nexus, but I blame WWE for how this angle went wrong with too many random attacks, re-casting the group too often and with only two men in the group having good mic skills.
If Cena does take Nexus out what happens to Gabriel and Barrett, who are thought to be future WWE greats?
I think Gabriel should be giving a face turn and help Cena. He does not look like a heel or even act like one.
As for Barrett, he will be grand no matter what happens to his beloved stable.
Formed a Stable

Which WWE legends had stables?
Orton had Legacy, Triple H had Evolution, JBL had The Cabin and Taker had The Ministry of Darkness.
Most and nearly all dominant stables are made up of heels, so does Cena have to turn heel to have a successful stable?
Well EV 2.0 are not heel...but they aren't successful.
A heel turn is what Cena needs—and probably wants if you think about it. What 30-year-old man likes being loved by millions of kids under the age of 13?
Cena played an incredible heel in his early days on SmackDown when he had his rapping gimmick, and he made me laugh like mad when he bashed the likes of Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Vince McMahon, Rey Mysterio and many more.
Cena could have a heel stable and it could work—but are WWE going to completely re-face the company's poster boy?
Who would be appropriate members of the stable and why?
Wade Barrett: In a couple of years (if Cena is heel and Barrett remains heel) WWE could have an angle where these men are friends because of Nexus.
R-Truth: Well, they are friends, and if anyone in the WWE is well overdue a heel turn, it is this man
Chris Masters: Evolution had Batista, and Fourtune has Morgan.
Mentored an NXT Rookie
WWE Stars that have done this?
The Miz (twice) and Chris Jericho.
How this would be good for WWE?
This would inspire and send out a good message to all young talented fans who may want to become wrestlers.
How can this work WWE's advantage?
Well for starters, their star player will be on television Monday and Tuesday night.
It is no secret that WWE can be "high" on some SuperStars (Sheamus) and not on others (Chris Masters), so if WWE sees someone they like and thinks, "well they could be great for the company," then let that athlete become Cena's rookie!
This will give the young talent an overall advantage right from the get go.
Feud With WWE's New Breed Of Main Event Stars/ Higher Mid-Card
Who is WWE's new breed of Superstars?
Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Daniel Bryan and Kane (his newly found momentum and main event spot).
A Feud With Del Rio would Bring:
Bucket-loads of heat towards Del Rio, and this may be what puts him in contention for his first WWE Title. For Cena it would be a change to see him on-screen with any athlete other than Sheamus, Nexus or Orton.
A Feud With Swagger would bring:
A great display of Cena's amazing strength vs Swagger's technical move-set, and even better promos that will prove Swagger can play with the big boys.
A Feud With Bryan would bring:
Hopefully better mic skills from Bryan that should kickstart his main-event push. As for Cena, well Bryan vs Cena would be something big as both men are tremendously popular—Bryan is even considered the best in the world at what he does (just do not say that around Jericho, okay?).
A feud with Kane would bring:
Possibly the return of the Deadman? Kane vs Taker vs Cena sounds like a good match to me!
Have a Manager Or Valet
What WWE Legends have had managers or Valets?
Triple H (Chyna), Kane and Taker (Paul Bearer), Randy Savage (Miss Elizabeth) and Big Show (Paul Heyman).
Cena is solid on the mic, so why would he need or want a manager?
This may be touching on the slide about the NXT Idea, but it is true that WWE could use Cena's popularity to build top class stars.
WWE have recently brought back Virgil and Paul Bearer, and TNA have also recruited Flair and Jimmy Hart as managers. Is this a sign that the pro-wrestling world is in need of fresh, new managers/valets?
Vickie Geurrero and Alex Reilly are currently managing two guys in the middle of a push (Ziggler and Miz), but Reilly has skills and passion to compete as an active wrestler, and as for Vickie, well she does her job to PERFECTION!
New managers are needed in not only the WWE but also in the entire Wrestling World. If WWE are smart enough, they will realise that Cena is they way to do it without a doubt.
What WWE Legends have made excellent, unexpected heel turns?
Batista, Hulk Hogan, The Rock and many, many more!
Would it be good or bad for the WWE if the Golden Boy turns on his fans?
Yes and No.
It will be good in the fact that ratings would probably shoot through the roof, and we would also see fresh new feuds as Cena would be the heel. He could feud against obvious faces like Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, Edge and Randy Orton amongst others.
It would not be so great for merchandise sales one would have too imagine, and also maybe this would be the end of the PG Era—probably not, but we can dream, right?
In what way would the heel turn have to be done make it convincing and effective?
The current Nexus angle would have been the best way to do it, but it seems as if WWE have dropped the ball on this one because of the stipulation to the main event match at Survivor Series.
Maybe if he turns on friend R-Truth (who is carved into the WWE Kids' hearts) or if he attacks current champion Orton.
