Well, John Cena for one, if he has anything to say about it. He's been outspoken about that never happening.
Secondly, where the big problem comes in, he's not going to LEAVE as a heel, he's going to leave as a babyface, just like every top star does. I don't think there's been ONE top star that's ever left as a heel. Hogan, Austin, Rock, Undertaker will, Triple H will, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Mick Foley, Edge, etc, every damn one of them retired from WWE as a babyface because when you go out, you don't want to go out like Eric Bischoff, kicking and screaming while being thrown into a dumpster, you want to go off as the triumphant hero with his head held high as he rides off into the sunset. And that's what Cena will do, only in his case, he'll do it with thousands of people booing him. Or maybe not, maybe, just maybe he'll get the biggest pop in wrestling history because he's LEAVING.
Lastly, I just think booing Cena has transcended heel or face at this point, it's part of the WWE culture, you boo Cena. That's just what you do, it's like the What? chants.
