What is John Cena's role going to be tonight on RAW?

I posted this on a thread but thought i'd make its own thread from it.

I dont think Cena will be involved in the title picture in the next few months, for a few reasons.

1. Punk will have a long reign and possibly go into Mania as the champ, therefore Cena would have to lose on multiple occasions to Punk which i cant see Cena or the WWE doing.
2. His Mania ME match vs Rock doesnt need the title to be involved so they'll leave it on Punk.

So, what will Cena's role be up until Feb when the Rock build up should start to pick up pace?

If he's not involved with the title who will he feud with?

Will the writers really keep Cena out of the title picture for up to 4 months or will they give him one last reign before Wrestlemania?

What do you think?

If we're lucky, he'll end up being The Miz's next victim...

I think they are slowly building a long awaited heel turn and in the meanwhile, he will have promos about The Rock, his haters and occasionally bring legends to talk to him about it. And perhaps in some episodes he will just be in a random tag team matches with another face against the heels. They've done it a lot when he was champion, no reason to stop when he's even more directionless.

This is WWE's perfect opportunity to give the ball to other stars to run with for a while.

Teasing a heel turn that will never happen. But we'll get 50 threads about it, OMG he's turning. I know it. And then they'll be wrong and then speculate again.

Vince is loving it though. It's bringing attention to Cena when he's really doing nothing at all and getting him talked about more than 90% of the roster.

He won't turn heel anytime soon. As much as most of us hate it, he will go over the Rock clean at Mania. In order to do that, he needs to be the good guy to all the kiddies and ladies out there. As JR pointed out in his blog, he is selling a shitload of merchandise and Vince isn't going to risk that. Sure a heel turn would be awesome for the guys in the crowd, but they won't make up for lost revenue in hats, t-shirts, wristbands etc... Hell, if this was more "attitude" like in 1998, Vince would have come out with a John Cena vibrator for all the ladies.

I'd love to see the turn, but ain't gonna happen in the next few months for certain.

Of course that's just my opinion,

I could be wrong.

(But I'm not)

Probably a segment where he is trying to gather pity from the WWE audience and ends up getting boo'd and humiliated more.

This. Exactly. This is what everyone who wants a Cena heel turn isn't understanding. He makes money as a face in merchandise sales to kids, well beyond anyone else on roster. It is a terrible business decision to flip him heel.

John Lauranitus will come out and announce a WWE Title match for later in the night with Cena vs Punk, which Cena will win and hold the title for seven years straight.

He will most likely be in the Royal Rumble match and the EC chamber match, but I hope he does not win either. This leaves TLC, not sure where he fits in there. ON WWE TV from now until afte EC I am sure they will continue to play up Cena's "Rising Above Hate"
