Cena's Music, JBL/CM Punk Turns?, McMahon's Return

Written by Richard Gray on Oct 29, 2008 - 10:45:22 AM

Is John Cena getting new entrance music?

It all depends on how the lawsuit that we reported on yesterday turns out. Obviously if WWE and John Cena lose the lawsuit then they are going to have to give him a new theme song.

First off I'd like to say I really enjoy you site, you guys put a lot of hard work into it and I hope you know that it's appreciated. My question is regarding JBL. Obviously JBL has been somewhat "downgraded" as a main eventer. The fans don't really want to see him in the main events of PPV and Raw, he doesn't really have the work rate he used too and he gets a lot of heat when he comes out but I think that is because people really do hate seeing him. Would it be better if creative tried to repackage JBL into a babyface?

Thank you for the tremendous compliment on the website. Ryan and I work very hard for all of our readers because we want you all to be the most knowledgeable pro wrestling fans in the world. With the growth of Wrestling News World, I believe that we are accomplishing that. As for JBL turning babyface, I do not see it happening. JBL is as over as any heel on the Raw brand and I have to disagree with you that his work rate is down. JBL has had a few clunkers since returning but for the most part he's put on some solid matches. The number of jobs that JBL has done does concern me but one source in creative told me that a lot of the jobs are JBL's idea as he works under the philosophy that a good heel can lose (and lose a lot) and still be over. So far it seems to be working for JBL so I do not think that there will be a babyface turn for him anytime soon.

Considering his heel work in the past, do you see a heel turn for CM Punk in the near future? I understand with WWE going PG, they obviously want to keep role models for kids and Punk's 'straight edge' gimmick is ideal with that direction. However, anyone who's seen Punk as an 'I'm straight edge and that makes me better than you' heel can't deny he makes a good heel. Anything in the cards?

From what I was told, CM Punk is still one of Vince McMahon's favorites so I do not see any changes to his current gimmick. That's not to say that they couldn't turn Punk heel down the road but right now they like the direction that he is going on with Kofi Kingston as his partner and there is talk of an eventual Randy Orton vs. CM Punk feud.

I was wondering if Shane and Stephanie McMahon showing up on Raw next week will lead to Vince making a return to TV and try to boost the ratings?

We have been receiving a lot of questions regarding Vince McMahon on WWE television as a lot of readers feel that it is time for his return. I have not heard of any plan to bring him back, however, there is always a possibility that it could happen in the near future. WWE did the angle with the set falling on him to write him off of television and end the McMahon Million Dollar Mania this summer. With the ratings in a slump I think that a Vince McMahon return will happen sooner than later but I do not have a specific date.
