Football News

Former WWE superstar Edge has revealed his thoughts on whether or not John Cena should turn heel, while the once dominant force in WWE has also given his view on whether Cena could actually pull off a heel turn.

There has been a lot of talk about whether or not John Cena should turn heel. WWE fans far and wide have voiced their opinions on why they think Cena should lose the tag as the 'babyface' of the WWE.

Although it might not seem like there are many WWE fans left who want to see John Cena's character to stay the same, WWE's revenue from Cena will tell you a different story.

Heel turn would send fans crazy 

But Edge thinks the WWE could really benefit from turning John Cena heel, with the former star saying that Cena would send fans crazy with such a change. But after years and years of playing the good guy, fans and so called experts have said that Cena would struggle to pull off the bad guy character. Edge doesn't agree with that notion though. 

“If John Cena ever turned heel and really stole some of Hollywood Hogan’s tricks and backstabbing tactics, I think the people would cheer him out of the building," Edge explained this week.

"I think the fans would go crazy. I’m not talking about Thuganomics, I’m talking about being a stone cold, heartless, no good bad guy… I think Cena could pull it off.”

It could hurt WWE in the long-term 

But Edge isn't blinded by the idea of Cena turning heel and how many WWE fans would love to see it happen. There is a growing discontent amongst WWE fans regarding John Cena's current character, but that doesn't mean that the vocal majority is necessarily the actual majority.

Edge claims that although maybe a quarter of WWE fans don't like Cena's character right now, he insists it's the other three-quarters majority that WWE should care about, and at the end of the day, it's those fans that make Cena the revenue gold WWE craves and loves.

“I would guess he’s probably moving a lot of merchandise, so why not stick with that?" Edge added.

"I think that’s probably a good gauge for popularity, you’ll have a lot of guys not like the character, but if 3/4 of a family is liking the character, and buying the merchandise, and 1/4 isn’t, you do the math.”
