Re: Is Cena being phased out gradually due to Stephanie & HHH's growing influence in
He's not being phased out. He's playing a different role. Bryan is at a point now where he can feasibly come off as the face of the company, and everybody knows that. So, for the first time in years, they can experiment with Cena. And they're doing that with the storyline with Wyatt, and probably will continue with other guys in the foreseeable future.
I don't think a heel turn is out of the question, but it's not too likely. It would have to be in the context of old versus new, or something to that effect - The Authority, Cena, maybe even someone like Sheamus defending the old, and Bryan, Shield, dare I say even The Wyatt Family fighting to establish the new. That would be the only feasible way, I think.
At any rate, what's cool here is that we're in something of a transitory era right now, and it will be exciting to see how it plays out with Cena and beyond.
