• “I never quite understood why we didn’t pull the trigger on that deal” – WWE Hall Of Famer On John Cena Turning Heel
During a recent episode of his ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, Jim Ross talked about WrestleMania 27 from 2011, the event that featured the WrestleMania return of The Rock.
The 2007 WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he never understood why John Cena was not turned Heel during the Cena/Rock storyline, that went on for about 2 years.
Here’s what Good Ol’ J.R. had to say:
“The thing that’s always been funny to me is that Cena never turned heel, that’s where my brain fart starts.
Why didn’t we do that? Why was that not done? I’ve heard John didn’t want to be a heel, I don’t really believe that one. I just think that Vince felt like he was such a pristine babyface, but if you listen to the audience, there was a long time there where he wasn’t a pristine babyface.
It was timely, the audience more often than not will tell you what they want to buy, they will tell you what aisle to go down with your shopping cart and tell you what is in your cart to take home, you just listen, listen to their reactions. I was always amazed that Cena got booed so much.
Cena getting booed was a lot like Roman Reigns getting booed whenever he was just getting rolling, and now there’s a reason to boo Roman Reigns because thanks to Paul Heyman he’s become a significant anti-hero. He’s a heel, and he’s a damn good one.
The Cena thing, I never quite understood why we didn’t pull the trigger on that deal.”
