For the longest time, WWE fans have wanted to see John Cena turn heel. However, that probably wouldn’t be in the company’s best interest due to all the merchandise that “The Leader Of The Cenation” sells for children.
During a recent interview on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Cena discussed this while promoting his new “Bumblebee” movie. He explained why he has always been confused by the request:
“It’s weird with me because I am supposed to be the hero, but I’m actually the heel, and everyone’s just like, ‘Man, why don’t you just turn bad so you can be cool again!’,” Cena said.
“Wait, wouldn’t that make me good? I don’t even know. And it’s fun to like go into the WWE warpzone with those folks. They think I’m supposed to be a bad guy to be a good guy, but aren’t I already being a bad guy? Just wait until the debut of The CFO.”
