– In an interview with the London Free Press, John Cena explained why won’t turn heel.

“Although I can handle business when I need to, I really make conscious choices to do the right thing. There’s still a giant portion of the audience associated to the Attitude era that I believe thinks I am a bad guy. But I’m not a bad guy. I generate so much hatred just because of the way I act. I look at Tim Tebow as a good example. People couldn’t stop saying his name. He’s such a stand-up guy. People don’t believe it because it’s almost too good to be true. And he generates that hatred,” Cena says.

“I have fun with this business. I love every second of it. I love to be right there in the middle of the hunt. At the end of the day, it’s not my job to force people in any direction. I just to out there and see what happens. You can analyze character development all day, but with the current state of affairs, there’s no need or rationale for me to deviate from what I’m doing.”

Cena also discussed his work with Make-A-Wish Foundation. The interview is available here.

— Bill Maher mentioned The Undertaker during his opening monologue on Friday’s edition of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO.

He said, “Get this. In Arizona, a state legislator wants a law where if a woman wants an abortion, she has to watch another woman get an abortion. Yeah, I know, they keep one-upping each other on what you have to do. By the end of the year you must defeat the World Wrestling star, The Undertaker!”

    Wow, what an asshole. I guarantee you he will turn heel eventually. Look at what happened to Hulk, he was red&yellow for too long and people got sick of it. People have been sick of SuperCena for a few years now already. I like Cena, he has everything (and yes, he can wrestle. watch his debut.) but i’m sick of this character. Especially him saying it doesn’t bother him. Bull shit. He NEEDS a heel turn. Badly.

    I don’t know, Cena as heel would be great, just work with it, he wouldn’t have to change all that much, just don’t smile, punk someone on the mic and be a douche, Cena’s that and 2 more moves

  • Ricardo

    People, don’t get carried away by CC’s usual articulate misunderstanding. CC either has a strong impairment to understanding, or if he was a wrestler he’d have no problem being a heel, considering the douche he always is with his mindless hatred of Kurt Angle, Cena and others.

    Cena IS NOT saying he won’t turn because he’s a nice guy in real life. He’s saying he won’t turn because he’s successfully getting away with being post-heel/face. By being who he is, he’s generating extremely positive reactions from part of the crowd, and extremely negative from others, but leaving no one indifferent (as this forum proves). He wouldn’t be able to generate more interest than that if turned heel. And he’s right.

    Cena is just a p*ssy! Edge is a nice guy and played an awesome heel on tv.

  • Jason L

    Guys its Vinces’ decision not his or ours. Let’s all remember that.

  • HHH=GOAT

    Blah Blah Bull$hit!

    Tim Tebow generated hatred because the press wouldn’t shut up about him. He went 1-4 in the last five games of last season. He’s not good.

    People don’t like Cena because they have tired of him, and have been tired for a long time. Cena is making lots of money as long as his stuff sells, so he handles the booing.

  • D2K

    If The Rock jobs to Cena at 28 (which I also agree will happen) I don’t see why he would turn heel at that point UNLESS……Cena totally flips out on the fans whom will probably be booing him anyway and tells them to “stick it” the following night on RAW.

    However at this point it’s a pipe dream to expect or even hope for WWE creative to actually do something that makes sense.

  • the_electrifying_one

    I could put up with Cena being a face if he was to actually freshen his persona up. Maybe he should get the living crap beaten out of him by a heel. Take 3 to 6 months off to chill out, let any injuries recover etc and then come back after a major build up with an altered persona.

    I don’t think he has to turn heel. I think he needs to bring something new to the ring instead of the same old shit that we see week in week out!!

  • VenomEX

    tim tebow has more than 5 moves

  • Omar

    He just doesnt want to say that he enjoys the merchandise profits that may drop if he turns heel.

  • 1919dpg

    the heat cena gets is XPAC HEAT.. it’s obviously the bad heat which means GET THE FUCK OFF TV! when we wrestling fans boo a heel it’s really like yeh were booing you but we like you.

  • CAYK

    You can’t cheat if you’re not doing anything different than anyone else @Dave. Tim Tebow prays to god because he’s religious and America is a country where you are free to practice your religion.

    Cena always tends to blur WWE with reality. I really wonder who he really is and what he actually stands for. Plus the digitals got to go bro, just because you were in The Marine does not make you a Marine. To top it off with your black MCMAP belt that I am sure you earned through countless hours of training.

  • Cnationsinceday1

    If you ppl watched wrestling you would know he started as a heel..

  • TS93

    This coming from the guy that bullied Lillian Garcia off camera?!

  • dave

    yeah but tim tebow is playing a sport. john cena is an entertainer. when they boo cena its because they are bored. Tebow on the other hand trying to get God to help him win at a sport, which is suppose to be- best man wins, that makes tim tebow a CHEATER

  • CC

    So he is saying that he cant turn heel because he is a good guy in real life? Is he trying to say that all the heels are really a bunch of bastards?
    I would say that he is too afraid that he wont have the chops to play the heel, but for my money he does have the chops as he was far superior as a heel.

    His argument though doesnt really relate to what is essentially an acting role.
