If John Cena was no longer main event material by 2014, should he have had a gimmick change?....

...to that of a totally snarky, short-tempered heel holding the WWE United States Championship who would at least talk tough and threaten to end the careers of Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Kevin Owens, Damien Sandow, Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, Sheamus, Wade Barrett, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Braun Strowman, Sami Zayn, Daniel Bryan, Big Show, Kane, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston, pretty much all of which make up the vast majority of WWE's main roster talent who will each get an opportunity to have their way with Cena in matches where Cena may gladly take bumps as that heel character.

Like so many IWC anti-Cena smarks have said, a possible Cena heel turn would not have an effect on whether WWE would go from PG to TV-14 since today's society teaches WWE fans not to like violence. Now WWE's got bottom-tier sponsorship deals, so going PG wasn't exactly the best idea in retrospect to begin with.

We might even get some better promos from a heel Cena which may involve him saying to the crowd and Seth Rollins "Even though you [Seth Rollins] messed my face up, doesn't mean your knees aren't open for business." instead of a plucky-eyed superman face Cena cracking lame jokes that even 8-year-olds cringe at.

He's still the best main event material they have, John is just once again being selfless by stepping aside and offering to once again bestow prestige to the U.S title. Truely a great and caring human being.

He should have changed his gimmick years ago.

Face or heel, I don't care about Cena now.

He should've turned heel in his prime or even in his feuds with Rock or Punk.

Bottom tier sponsorship deals? Compared to what?

Arrive bitching.
Stay bitching.
:something happens:
Continue bitching.
Leave bitching.
Repeat.

Would it really make a difference? Cena haters would still hate him.

Even with a gimmick change idt Cena would have as huge an impact as some of his promos already show hints of Tweener rather than Face such as when he talked down Owen's victory and others like Rusev which downplayed their achievement.
He consistently has merch changes so any merch reflecting a Heel like character would be no different to his sales, a new entrance theme would have more impact than anything else.
The only route that could cause shock is if he did what Austin did against Rock at WM and turned to join Authority but chances of Cena doing that are zero.



Thanks to Drago & Fringe for their generosity

Pretty much. He can still do what he does for kids and stuff, just change his gimmick that should have underwent a change since 2006 and 2007.
