There’s been a ton of talk lately surrounding the possibility of John Cena turning heel, especially considering he may be booed when he takes on The Rock in the Great One’s hometown of Miami at WrestleMania. Personally (not that anybody’s asking), I would keep Cena in the position he’s in now. The man makes millions of dollars for both the WWE and himself in merchandise alone. If you turn him heel, you’re flushing all that cash away with nobody in a position to replace him. But I digress …
With all the talk of Cena potentially turning heel, I was reminded of a brief conversation we had about how he’s received by both the fans and his peers. Here’s a portion of that conversation. Coincidentally, the majority of our conversation could be found in the WWE Championship book (just saying):
Have you ever felt a sense of animosity in the locker room because of all your successes?
Absolutely. I don’t necessarily give a damn about animosity in the locker room. As long as you can talk the talk and walk the walk, there’s really no need for any of that. But there was major animosity within the WWE Universe [when I won the title]. They became torn and that’s when the great Cena divide happened, I guess.
What type of animosity have you experienced in the locker room?
I don’t ever care about any of that [expletive].
