Re: What will finally rattle John Cena?
I think realizing that even after this far in his career he is still not as respected as much as The Undertaker. What is the biggest thing Cena would have to do in order to really push his "Rise above hate" theme? That would be ending The Undertaker's Streak, but without turning heel. You all would go nuts, and I know I am going to get heat for this, but it makes the most sense. So many of us have asked why hasn't this man turned heel. What if he doesn't have to, but the fans just overwhelmingly boo him?
As Cena has said, he isn't going to change. He may speak his mind more in response to the amount of trash, and booing being directed his way. Believe me folks, if Cena were to end Taker's Streak he wouldn't have to cheat, or lie to do it. Taker just like Andre put over Hogan, The Undertaker has to do the same for Cena. This is Andre/Hogan all over again folks. Hogan/Andre made wrestling, and this is Taker/Cena's last chance to make wrestling boom again with history repeating itself on the greatest stage of them all. Cena ending Taker's Streak will be the single greatest moment of John's career of all time, and the most talked about thing in wrestling for a very long time.
Like I said Cena doesn't have to turn heel, he just has to defeat The Undertaker, and the fans will just despise him. Basically he becomes a tweener, and the complete opposite of Austin. Cena ends up being the bad boy tweener that most fans would simply not like. He would have a minority of younger males 15-20 who would be heavy in to his bad boy character. It would be the exact opposite of what it is now. The fans who boo him would eventually cheer him again. Austin was this legit bad guy, alcoholic, he swore, finger profanities, beat up his boss, beat up Santa, and numerous of other "bad" things. While all that time the fans loved him.
Cena has the chance to be something much different, but just as big in terms of character. Yes, it is a "PG" era, but that doesn't mean Cena can't speak his mind. As far as he is concerned the fans turned their backs on him. Cena says he hasn't changed, and won't ever change. He explains perhaps that it was Undertaker's time to realize that this is John Cena's yard now. This prompts Cena to have a new t-shirt titled "My Yard". John explains that he is here to start a new era, and chapter in the WWE that will live on just like Hulkamania, or even The Attitude Era.
