WWE: John Cena teases that life would be better if he was a WWE heel

Published 15 Comments

John Cena has been amongst the leading lights in the WWE for well over a decade, taking the term baby face to a whole new level as he continued to reign in title after title.

Joking around

And perhaps because of this near untouchable status as the top superstar in the organization, Cena decided to have a little bit of fun with the WWE fan base Friday.

Taking to his official Twitter account, the WWE superstar posted the following message prompted by the #lifewouldbebetterif hashtag that was trending at the time:

"Ok interweb, have fun with this one... #lifewouldbebetterif I turned heel. @twitter feed crash in 3...2..."

It's funny because it's true

While the WWE superstar was clearly only having a little fun with his Twitter fan base (of which there are a staggering 6.34 million) the idea of the American hero going bad is not as ludicrous as it may sound.

Many within the wrestling world have been arguing it is time for Vince McMahon and co to radically alter the Cena brand, with fans supposedly tiring of the same routine now that the wrestler has picked up 15 World Championship belts.

And for the first time in his career, John Cena will indeed be taking on a heel role of sorts in the coming months. Although it will not involve a packed out arena of WWE fans or any intro music. 

Cena has begun filming for a role which will see him play a villain in his latest foray into Hollywood - taking on the role of an angry father in 'The Nest', set for release Christmas 2015.

WWE needs a hero

unfortunately for the scores of fans, and perhaps Cena himself, there is very little chance of John Cena the enemy turning up at an arena near you in the future.

The WWE brand relies heavily on Cena as the family-friendly face of the organization, and he brings in enough money through merchandise because of that to justify his position as the top paid talent in the company.

Despite his exceptional work on the mic, and the few slight glimpses we have seen of Cena's dark side, Vince McMahon knows he has a sure fired winner in John Cena the baby face. In fact, the more people get riled up against his constant glory and celebrated stature the more it works as a method of building those who are given the heel tag into genuine superstars of the WWE.
