Re: If John Cena Would Go Back To His Rap Gimmick Would The Boos Go Away?
Yeah, but it's not as big of a deal as it was before when 8 mile came out and Eminem was on fire. Seeing a white rapper is cool, but it isn't exactly groundbreaking.
There are multiple reasons why it wouldn't work:
1. In this PG era, the things that Cena used to say wouldn't be allowed
2. There's no possible way that you can say that Cena wouldn't look silly coming out in a sports jersey and rapping at 36 years old. Yeah, he looks silly now, but at least he isn't rapping.
3. It's too much of a gimmick to be taken seriously. He had to shed that part of his character to be the top guy and a main eventer. I mean, his current gimmick isn't all that good either, but it's certainly an improvement over a rapper. I don't know about you, but I'm certainly not going to be threatened by a guy that says he's going to kick my ass while going acapella.
4. You don't take two steps forward and then 3 steps back. You also don't shed off a gimmick and then go back to it. It's just going to confuse people, and it's just stupid in general.
