Re: Cena heel turn is finally coming
Yeah, had a long discussion about this last night on the Royal Rumble thread, and I'd bet anything on Cena being behind the Shield at this point.
The WWE are not stupid, they know that no one asked for a road to redemption fairy tale Cena win, so the only way I can see this match happening if to set up a huge shocker at the end where the Shield would interfere on Cena's behalf. The rematch surely won't draw as much as the novelty of the first match, so going that was makes sense, plus, they revigorate Cena and have an angle that could potentially get more eyeballs on their product which is only a good thing.
The current Cena incarnation worked for a while, but it's run it's course and has become painstakingly stale. Seing that the WWE seem to be moving into a more mature direction, using the ace up their sleeve of a Cena heel turn is perfect. It's not like he's getting any younger, if they're going to turn him, now's the perfect time. Have him screw the most beloved superstar perhaps of all time by "doing what it takes" in their rematch. Perfect long term booking.
Oh, notice how Cena was the only guy that didnt try to extract revenge on the Shield after his beatdown? Notice how the commentators barely mentioned it after the fact? I think that small beatdown was meant to deceive us.
