While promoting his upcoming Transformers’ spin-off movie, Bumblebee, at San Diego’s Comic Con, John Cena was asked about the chances of him losing his good guy persona in the ring, and turn heel.
This is what Cena had to say down below:
“Well, I couldn’t help but notice you paused to insert cold hearted to that sentence so that may be a bit presumptuous. To actually answer your question, I think it is a really great opportunity. I have had a great career in the WWE and for that entire time I have been the good guy and that kind of went into my films so far, and now it doesn’t seem like my character in the WWE will ever evolve into that bad guy role that perhaps a lot of people have wanted; so this is kind of a way for my fans from that aspect of my career to see that side of me. So, don’t expect heel John Cena in the WWE – that’s Inside Baseball talk for some of you – but it means bad guy John Cena isn’t happening there, so this is that chance for me.”
It’s been discussed for years by fans pleading for a change to his character and a bad guy persona. We should never say never in the world of professional wrestling, but Cena seems that a heel turn is unlikely.
