They're not phasing him out, they're just taking some time to build up new faces big so they can eventually turn them heel and feed them to cena

For once Cena doesn't main event Wrestlemania and yet he's being phased out...



Don't get your hopes up. Cena's going to be back to being one of the main guys. Be sure of that.


*Credit goes to that guy who likes breaking the fourth wall apparently for this sig

There is no PG Era. There never was a PG Era. Just sayin.

If you want to go up, you go through Cena. He should be taking the role of kingmaker but that still seems to falling on HHH which is weird considering HHH is the guy who did the honours for Cena 8 years ago but still. In order for Bryan to properly have a run as THE guy, the actual GUY needs to step aside and let it happen. If Bryan takes off, I think there's a definite chance this will mark the definitive turn in Cena's career with regards to his role and position. If not, we'll be back to Cena as king of the mountain once again. He's probably a bit of a fail safe at this stage. They have Bryan positioned perfectly right now. They have Reigns and the Shield, they have Wyatt, Cesaro and a whole host of younger guys to try and make something out of. If they work, Cena's value as THE top guy weakens. If not, they resort back to him until they find a replacement, just like they always do.


What your post signifies for me is that whoever gets the shot, WWE testing the waters currently with Daniel Bryan, they have to be on top of their game & not fuck up this opportunity. The moment they fuck up Cena will be called back to run shit.

Fans can be tried of John all they want but there hasn't been a legitimate wrestler to take over for Cena in YEARS.

Could be. Cena has been on top for over a decade and turns 37 on Wednesday so you got to think they're thinking of the post Cena WWE.

HHH pulled the "he cant work" card at meetings back in 2002/2003 which slowed his progress. So, maybe.

(which is not a bad thing at this stage by the way)
I don't think that's true anymore. Cena himself said in an interview that HHH and Vince used to hate him and wanted him gone from the company, but they started to like him once he got really over with his rapper gimmick and skyrocketed to face of the company ever since.

Plus, HHH even put over Cena in a promo against Brock Lesnar. He spoke highly of him and I think he also admitted that he didn't think much of Cena but Cena was able to push through and make a name for himself.

He's not been phased out because of a power change, he's been phased out because it's intelligent business. No one will be around forever, you gotta push for new stars as the current ones get older.
That's true. It's just good for business. Raking in the money from Cena all these years has gone on long enough and now they have to really make new mega stars...especially since Cena's been getting injured. They need new top guys to rely on.

And I agree with Cena never turning heel. People argue that Hogan turned heel, but that was a different era in which they could get away with it. Today, kids are more sensitive and a lot of stuff is being censored. We're also in the digital age, so Cena turning heel would be a big deal in the media and something that people like "Make-a-Wish Foundation" would not like. WWE heavily relies on Cena to represent the company in a positive light in public. Stone Cold Steve Austin even said that you don't turn the face of the company heel.

Randy Orton was the "face of the company" in the storyline, but Cena is still the real face of the company in real life.

No.

He's getting older and there are other faces who are getting over with the crowd and as a result are getting pushed.

Triple H & Stephanie are just doing the smart thing! Cena will not be around FOREVER so they are obviously looking ahead to the future, it's about time they started making legit main event stars and committing to them all the way.

Batista / Trish Stratus / Chris Jericho / CM Punk / Kurt Angle / Alberto Del Rio
Seth Rollins / Randy Orton / Ryback / Luke Harper / Fandango
Cesaro / Bad News Barrett / Dolph Ziggler / Christian / Curtis Axel
Finn Bálor / The Vaudevillians / Tyler Breeze / Sami Zayn / Tye Dillinger
Alicia Fox / Natalya / Summer Rae / Sasha Banks / Rosa Mendes / Eva Marie
Was At Wrestlemania 25, 26, 27, 28 & 30!!!
