In a nutshell: He just has never been portrayed consistently as a big deal while champion as well as lacking the charisma and vibe to capture the casuals attention. He is not an anti-draw either, he doesn't cause viewers to totally and completely tune-out in his segments like some of the anti-drawing mid-card/low-card. It is really that simple.
That would be Ryback.

Not really. RyBack has had a good track record of when he has a full quarter or so to himself. He can gain or regain a small portion of viewers. Probably because power-houses are generally eye-catching and have fun to watch matches. This week people tuned out, however as stated he only had a quick part of that quarter(his match carried over a quick timeframe at the end of one and beginning of another). The rest of the quarter had some "Be A Star" stuff, Sheamus with a talking toy, and some Eve/Layla brawling stuff. Nobody will watch that. RyBack isn't a big time draw or anything, but people are interested in some sense.

Default Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings



With the worst ratings in 15 years, its obvious. Change is needed, and that can happen overnight. I have no doubt that WWE has this in cold storage, a WMD scenario that has already been broken down into acts. Bet on it: As stupid as WWE have been, they've been discussing this for a while. The recent talk of McMahon looking for the next Cena hints at that. Someone as powerful as Cena influences an entire product. Right now, Cena is cookie cutter. When Cena turns, so will the makeup of WWE, in close reflection. Happened with Hogan. Happened with Austin. It'll happen in the next five years.

A Cena heel turn will destroy all RAW ratings from the last decade.

A scenario such as Cena turning at WrestleMania. For example, hype a family winning VIP ringside tickets to WM. Hype of the lucky winners appearance, young parents bringing kid Cena fans. Have Cena win dirty, beat The Rock to a pulp with a weapon. Have the planted 'family' leave in disgust. The following RAW would see Cena present an explanation. Guaranteed, the quarter hour for this promo would be through the roof. Now granted, WWE would lose merchandise sales with this. But when one window closes, another opens. A heel John Cena, minus the silly Barney clothing, with new edgier persona would inject RAW ratings so much that the advertisement gains in for the new third hour would work towards merchandise loss. Another consideration is to actually use it to boost merchandise sales. All it takes is the right slogan. Guaranteed, if Cena turns heel hardcore fans will start supporting him. WWE may even get him over using this method over a 2-year period.

Its possible something like this could emerge when McMahon is finished with politics. Not an Attitude era. Each new era must be of its own. This could all be done under PG. WCW did it.

And you know what? I, personally, wouldn't dare miss a RAW with a John Cena dressed in black who gets on the mic and starts shitting on being forced to smile at kids week in, week out.

I agree, a Cena heel turn is the perfect solution to all of WWE's ratings problems.

No joke.

Heel Cena with 2 hours instead of 3 would do better than 4.0.

But no, we can't have that, think of the merchandise sales which won't even be affected!

No, because if Cena turned heel, then he'd just be booed by kids and cheered by adults.

It's never going to happen Vince has never had the balls to turn his biggest faces hell outside of Bret & Shawn in 1997. He never did it to Hogan and Austin's heel turn was 100% HIS idea and pretty much ruined the rest of his career. hate to say it but John Cena will NEVER turn heel no matter how bad business gets.

That would be a mistake from the adult fans then, who want him to turn heel, because he would just go right back to face.

This is why smarks at events are idiots. You love a guy's heel character? Then BOO him at the shows and he'll stay a heel. Don't fucking cheer him and complain when they turn him babyface.
