Re: Will John Cena be able to do a Hogan on us?
It would make his character twice as interesting but it won't have even half the impact Hogan's turn did. Hogan lead the WWF during the first mainstream boom period, the internet wasn't nearly as prominent back in '96 so few people knew what was coming, NWO was very edgy in a cartoony period of wrestling. Plus an invasion angle hadn't been attempted in American wrestling back then.
A Cena led NWO could work but it still wouldn't have half the impact Hogan's turn did. Hell no one in the mainstream gives two damns about Cena.
