John Cena’s character is getting stale. He’s running on fumes and one idea to freshen him up is something that I’ve just written about –the idea that it’s time to turn John Cena heel. We know that the powers that be in the WWE aren’t exactly high on that idea, since they’ve been stalling on that for the better part of five years, so let’s take a look at some other ways to freshen up his character.
Why does Cena’s character need changing? It’s actually very simple — he’s become boring and his storylines seem to be the same over and over again. WWE seemed like they were onto something with the Bray Wyatt storyline and giving Cena a bit of a “monster” edge would be a really nice touch (more on this later).
The problem is, unless you’re a kid who looks at Cena as a hero and loves his bright, colorful outfits, he doesn’t really offer much. He’s heavy on propaganda and doesn’t offer much excitement in the ring. Let’s get into the five things I’d change to make his character better.
