Re: Cena heel turn is finally coming
Hogan was a northern territories "Titan Sports" guy trying to break out in Southern territory. He was a face, but he was heavily booed because he represented everything the fans were not -Hence why a heel turn was hugely successful. Hogan became the guy everyone thought he was: "Hollywood" Hogan. Sure, Cena gets booed, but the wrestling landscape is far different than it was.
Plus WCW had huge faces capable of carrying the product. Ric Flair and Sting were big (Not to mention countless more), and kept the Hogan/nWo angle alive. WWE doesn't have those kind of faces outside of The Rock (Who couldn't hold the angle because he's a part-timer).
Hogan heel turn =/= Cena heel turn.
