The gimmick was gold because it was so corny in the first place yet so funny and entertaining.

So with that do you think the hate would die down if he back to what made him famous to being with?
The boos go away when Cena goes away.

No. He'd get laughed at. It's too gimmicky (for lack of a better term) for the main event and it's more of something that was only good in the time period it was in rather than a classic/timeless type of gimmick like The Undertaker. I think people don't actually miss the rapper gimmick, they just miss the more arrogant, aggressive, and serious Cena that didn't smile, didn't scratch his head after being bested on the mic, and wasn't just a childish goof that he is today. The attitude was good, the actual rapping would be too silly to take seriously.

White rappers are still popular so it would work.

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.

i dont think it would work, the rapping scene is over these days. when he started it, it was are the right time to do it and ppl around the world were fans but in 2013 i think he'd need some thin new and up to date. its fun to pull it out every now and then. but it just wouldnt connect with fans like it did.

If John Cena revisited his dated joke gimmick from 2002 would I like him?
Fuck no. I'd boo even harder.
