...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 should have changed his gimmick years ago.

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.

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.
