It's the question that the entire WWE Universe are now beginning to crave an answer for and debate to great length, will John Cena's turn heel?
Many thought it would happen against Brock Lesnar at Summerslam, many think this could be building towards his eventual turn at Night of Champions or as far away as Wrestlemania 31. But this week WWE Legend Hulk Hogan weighed in on the debate, in an interview with The Buzz he was asked if John Cena should turn heel and he said:
"It's not just about 'rasslin' anymore. It's a bigger business. It's more about entertainment, and across the board, how all the dominoes fall when you make a knee-jerk reaction like that, so I really can't answer that question anymore."
Does this mean he thinks it could be "best for business?" Or does that mean like many have already speculated, that a heel turn is in the pipeline because it is the best way to take the company over the next few months?
Would it work?
Either way, the debate was that Cena couldn't turn heel because of the CeNation and the amount of charity work he does with Make a Wish and the fact that his merchandise is by far in the highest demand.
It seems like this should now no longer be the case, Cena will still be a WWE superstar if he turns heel, meaning he will still be able to do his meet and greets, he will still be able to do the charity work and with the amount of anticipation surrounding this heel turn as of late his new merchandise sales would be through the roof.
Why would WWE delay the inevitable any longer? He is a 15 time World Champion, if fans were going to turn their back on him for being a bad guy it would have happened already.
Hogan on his legacy
Hogan was also asked in the interview who he thought was a bigger star in WWE, The Rock or himself and he responded:
"If you're gonna ask me who the bigger star was in the wrestling business, I'm gonna say me. If you're gonna say who's the bigger star in Hollywood, I gotta say The Rock."
With Hogan still wanting to get back into the title picture and face Brock Lesnar at some point, this could be his way of putting his name back out there, otherwise a heel John Cena could be the exact person WWE needs to slay the beast that is Lesnar at Night of Champions.
