If Vince does not at least push Cena to a darker side they are completely missing out and they might as well just tell the audience he will never be heel and the a super face the rest of his life. Everyone turns heel at one time, or at the very least neutral. This horsecrap that he is a super face is not going to play well in 2012, it played well in the 80's but that is a completely different generation of fan who embraced that.
If he turned a tiny bit heel he would be so over and I think he would feel more comfortable, there is not a lot of heels left in the WWE that can take on a super face.
Either that or Brock needs to come back and play the super heel
EDIT: And RAW is proving my point. Let Rock win the belt over the next year, have Cena go neutral or self loathing then come back around while Rock gets arrogant. Cena beats Rock at a major PPV or the next WM and instant redemption and revenge.
Perfect example of why the loss was the best thing for Cena, infinitely more interesting then Cena going into the night having nobody that can beat him

Merged this with the existing Wrestlemania thread.
Cena gets killed again! Sorry but anyone over the age of 12 should not be a fan of his..He got pushed by Vince McMahon to be the next thing instead of the fans choosing like they always have..
Man when Cena teased the crowd that he was going to turn heel they were SOOOOOOO into it and then he did not :hmlol:
There is so much money to be made with a heel Cena, and its all being left on the table.
Cena as a 100% bonfide never goes bad face is just ridiculous, he is like a cartoon character stuck in a time warp.
And I am a Cena fan, its just a shame because he could be so much more
I just had to lol because I knew he watched last night and these points were made crystal clear with how hot the crowd was for the glimpses of attitude era they were getting from The Rock and from Jericho, etc
I marked OUT for Brock! When he did is little trademark dance/hop at the top of the ramp before coming down, my buddy & I just instinctfully gave each other a high five:hmlol:.
I was always a big fan of his, so last night was big for me. I will say though, it does kinda feel like Cena walked under a ladder or something, he's NOT having a good week!:hmlol::hmlol::hmlol:Quote:
Brock Lesnar sucks. Never liked him. I hope the Big Show punches his lights out in the near future. I would also like to see him go against Mark Henry. I actually felt bad for Cena when he got booed and then Lesnar dropped the F5 on him. And for the record, Cena used to be a heel when he was doing the whole "thug rapper" angle.
When you guys say Cena sucks, what exactly are you referring to? Cause, if we are talking about being a pro wrestler, Brock sucks a lot more than Cena. For starters Brock's mic skills are terrible and so are his promos. He also looks kind of rough to wrestle against. I wouldn't feel safe working with him in the ring. A big part of wrestling is protecting your "opponent" and making sure neither of you gets hurt.
And though I don't care for Cena's current character, I must say he has the look, the mic skills, and the ring skills needed to be a superstar in wrestling today.
Cena cannot relate to the other wrestlers, this is by design though. If Cena were allowed to let loose you would see him move into a whole different tier of wrestling where only HHH, HBK and Taker reside.
Cena is being held back by Vince for the kids, he is a locker room leader and everyone loves him. The problem is in the dramatic story world the WWE resides that pales when all your opponents are more interesting and your only draw is you are the "good guy".
As for the assumption Brock would be dangerous to work with, Brock will take care of you, he is professionally trained unlike say Goldberg who did injure other wrestlers. Brock is also a former NCAA Wrestling Champion as well as a UFC Champion which unlike WWE is not pre-planned, that alone deserves automatic respect. His mic skills lack but he does not need them, his appeal is brute strength and fear not mic skills.
Andre the Giant had no mic skills, Goldberg had no mic skills, they were not needed to get the point across. Brock previously also had Paul Heyman who is hands down one of the best writers and mic people in the wrestling industry doing the talking.
I am a Brock fan. I'm interested in seeing his response on why he came back to wrestling after leaving the UFC. I think his battle with diverticulitis was his downfall there, so how do you say "oh this isn't as bad as getting kicked in the stomach" and still come off as a bad ass.
The upside for him is that wrestlers know where to hit to avoid injury so he can still be a supreme bad ass (as was evident with the F5 he hit on Cena) without the risk.
I am happy The Rock got the win but now that Ive been thinking about it, why didnt he pass the torch to Cena the same way Hogan passed the torch to him in 2002?
Maybe I'm the only one. But I was more excited over the return of Albert, aka A-Train nka Lord Tensai.
And they actually gave a smark origin story for him as he came to ringside they said "He's a former WWE
super star who went to Japan, and now he's come back more hardened than ever." or something to that
effect. So new people go "ooooooh" and long time fans don't go "WTH? It's just Albert with a shredder mask!"
And he squashed Alex Riley, AND they gave him Kurrgan's finisher.
I went to Wrestlereunion , sadly I got so nervous so I couldn't ask Jake the Snake for his auto (he was in a good mood though , smiling and cracking jokes "he's grabbing my a**" when he was taking pix)
I also saw Diesel , Hammer , Iron Sheik (looked tired , I don't think he has many yrs left honestly) , Vader (in mask) , The Genious (I think he was there) , Luger......this impressed me as I never see celebs , peeps who see em all the time will never understand moments like this.
*WM III silver anniversary*
*WM VIII 20th anniversary*
It was not a Hogan v Ultimate Warrior or a Hogan vs Rock situation.
Also does nobody remember HBK vs Cena at WM 23, is HBK crap now and that was not passing the torch? HBK is a Hall of Famer for christs sake and Cena beat him clean via submission in the main event :hmlol:
Look at Hogan, EVERYONE knew that man was going to win 98% of the matches he had from 1984-1991 but that did not stop him from selling everything for the sake of the match.
Though at least Cena sold the F5 from Brock, I half expected to see him lying there on the ground with a giant smirk on his face :hmlol:
