I really do feel John Cena vs The Undertaker, as they are, would be enough. Not to say I would refuse a heel turn. If, they would actually do it (even just for that one match) I'd be ALL for it. Flashbacks to 2003 running through my head.
They were faces but kinda sorta not really lol. Shawn has always had that edge to him and he taunted Taker with all the holy stuff etc. Trips has always been a bastard no matter if he's playing heel or face lol. Cena though, he would stand there and smile while Taker told him he wasn't in his league. Then he'd tell everybody he agreed, tuck his tail between his legs and go to the back to let Taker have his time. The heel turn isn't essential and Taker/Cena is a HUGE match on its own. Absolutely. But for the sake of the story I'd personally like to see, I think Cena descending into heeldom and finally embracing the hate against a true embodiment of the WWE for the past 20 years now would be something magical to see.
