WWE: Why John Cena will never turn heel

It's one of the most talked about issues in world wrestling: Will John Cena ever turn heel?

And this question has been asked a lot after the events of the last two days. His girlfriend attacked her twin sister and joined with the Authority, he was savagely beat down at the hands of Brock Lesnar and the crowd chanted "thank you Lesnar" for doing the deed.

There's two perfectly good reasons why we might see the long awaited heel turn, but ultimately it just wont happen.

Safe bet

Cena is the fail safe for Vince McMahon and Triple H, when the times are tough, give Cena the belt and he will do the rest.

He is a proven draw. Cena with the title is more likely to draw in viewers, despite these numbers dwindling as the years go by.

Unfortunately, his title runs as the number one face have grown increasingly stale. The act wore thing a solid six years ago - who longer takes his "underdog" gimmick seriously anymore?

He is also the number one merchandise seller in the company, more kids want his shirt than any other. If they turned him heel, this extra pot of merchandise money would dry up very quickly.

Charity work

Then there's his behind the scenes work to consider.

Cena works harder than any other guy when it comes to promoting the company and doing charity work. How often do we see him making time in his already mad schedule to pay a visit to an ill child?

He is still the most requested celebrity when it comes to the 'make-a-wish' foundation, and that's because he will strive to visit every child who requests him. He is a true gentleman.

So where does the sense lay in turning him to the dark side?

He is popular with the kids and the WWE could risk damaging their relationship with the 'make-a-wish' foundation if they turn him. The company has been trying desperately to rebuild their public image in recent years and turning the most popular star would do a lot to set them back.

Who would replace him?

At this moment in time there isn't a clear cut baby face ready to take over all of his charity work, and pick up the fall in merchandise sales. Roman Reigns is being groomed for it but is a long time from being ready.

Daniel Bryan and CM Punk once looked set to take over that mantle, but we all know how that's turned out for the both of them. It appears that Bryan could struggle to wrestle again let alone regain his momentum.

So hold-tight folks, as "SuperCena" is here to stay for a long time, don't be getting your hopes up waiting for that heel turn.
