There's no Kayfabe in the business anymore.

Back in "the good ole days" heels were heels and a baby face was a baby face.  Over the past 10 years or more that line has been blurred. I will make the argument that the last wrestler (not including Vince) to get good heat and be a good heel was Slaughter when he was doing the whole Iraq gimmick around Wrestemania 7. Say what you want about him, "he didn't deserve the title, he was the shits blah blah" he got great heat. He was doing the right gimmick at the right time. Heel Bret Hart was good and so was Hogans heel turn but, Cena could be better that all three of those.


What should have happened is a few months ago when the Shield first came in and was kicking the shit out of people it should have been revealed that Cena was the leader. But they missed the boat with that.  

Hes already getting booed by every male over the age of 14. What they should have him do is go out one night on Raw and tell the fans he's tired of trying to be the "Mr. Positive, its okay that you boo me, I respect that, good guy" take off his stupid wrist bands, shirt and hat and say I'm not doing this shit anymore. I've been working hard to entertain you stupid people and you boo me and cheer for guys that look like trash like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. Then tell all the little kids to shove it. Have the announcers apologize and say its not part of the show let them cut his mic and have Vince and Stephanie come out in total kayfabe mode and try to get him to stop . As long as he calls the fans stupid it will work great.

You should have been a booker, dude!

I've mentioned on here before that I would keep Cena exactly as he is, but send him out about every second or third segment until even his marks become sick of him. Have him keep doing what he does, but do it a whole lot more; to the point he almost becomes a caricature of himself, if you will.

Done right, I think he could earn X-Pac heat, or something close to it! But they would need to keep him in that role for a while. Depending on how it works out, he may even develop a bit of a following and eventually hit on something marketable.

I honestly believe his merchandise sales are a big reason they haven't abandoned his face role to this point.

I'm tired of Cena, and have been for a long time.  There's been quite a few opportunities for them to switch him, just as you describe, but they won't do it.  T-shirts, merch, Make-A-Wish, etc, etc.  They don't have anyone else who can become that poster guy right now.

I will make the argument that the last wrestler (not including Vince) to get good heat and be a good heel was Slaughter when he was doing the whole Iraq gimmick around Wrestemania 7.

I'll throw JBL in there, he was an awesome heel, and I'm sure I read a story about them having to sneak him out of somewhere in Mexico, 'cos the crowd were going to kill him?!

JBL knew how to get the crowd worked up..
I remember when he came to south Texas / Laredo ..
I took my nephew and he came out with a donkey and a big ass mariachi somebro .. Grin
he started making fun of all the Mexicans / Hispanics in the crowd ..
I would say about 99% of the crowd was Latino ..
I heard he had to get a police escort to his hotel

Yes, almost a Marky Mark rip-off.
