But no, we can't have that, think of the merchandise sales which won't even be affected!
The third hour (Or more accurately, the first hour of the three) is a current source of income for WWE. The downside to this is taking damage in ratings. Cena turning boosts all three hours, increasing revenue. A new Cena t-shirt with some less than kiddie slogan, but not outright offensive, would shift like gold nuggets.

The only question is when, they'll do it eventually.

Well when the babyfaces they do have suck what do you think people are going to do? They cheer for whoever is more entertaining.

If you love a heel and you cheer him, you're doing him a disservice. They WANT to be booed.

Yes. Only thing that can save this hopeless product is Cena turning heel.

Re: Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings

As long as John is the biggest babyface, he'll never turn heel. Someone has to surpass him before Vince ever considers turning him heel.

Re: Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings

If WWE isn't hopelessly, tragically stupid, they already have the plans in place and the wrestler selected for Heelna to put over. Cena turning will boost WWE for 5 years and serve as the platform to build the next guy to carry the next five years after that. One angle can influence a full decade with only two wrestlers.

Re: Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings

Regular Cena as champ will pull much better ratings than right now. Heel Cena's not even required tbh. Though I agree, temporarily ratings will go up even more with heel Cena. I'm not sure how it'll be long-term though with no decent babyface to go against him.

A mega heel Orton go against face Cena will pull nice ratings too. If Orton's allowed to get crazy backstage stunts and whatnot that is, and is booked as being able to beat Cena cleanly like he was the last few times they faced off.

Re: Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings

some off you guys claiming he will never turn heel? wtf course he will. he was gonna turn last year the build with piper and mic foley and kane were the seeds. but they pulled the plug. no idea why but they will turn him heel at some point. my money is the next mania is the date he will turn heel. when he loses to the rock again you watch this space. or he will cheat to will. they have no choice to turn him its a must and even cena knows it

That's the thing as long as Cena is face no one can surpass him because he will always be booked better.

A heel Cena is needed to create the next big babyface.

Re: Heel Cena would pull 4.0 ratings

Doubt it. He is just one guy who's biggest worth to the company lies in merchandise sales, not ratings or PPV buys or media sales. John Cena, despite being very popular, draws only as much as his fanbase is willing to pay for him. Dave Meltzer has stated many times that Cena's worth as a draw to the company does not resonate with his level of popularity, not even half of it. Lets not forget, Cena as a bad guy is not going to attract the same demo, kids and teens of the world. Infact, the potential risk of Cena's heel turn hurting the company, especially in merch sales and their primary topface marketing strategies they heavily rely on, far outweigh the success of it long-term to WWE.
