Stone Cold Steve Austin is ‘training’ with prepared meals in new photos posted to his Instagram account, further fueling rumors of his discussed WrestleMania 38 match against Kevin Owens.
The pro-wrestler-turned-actor John Cena has been away from WWE for quite some time. Nowadays, he makes sporadic appearances and his most recent appearance was at SummerSlam last year when he unsuccessfully challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. Previously, John Cena’s direct message to Becky Lynch was revealed.
He has been portrayed as a babyface for a decade. Though he was a heel at the onset of his career, he gained popularity as a babyface. Cena recently stated that he believes “there’s another 10 years’ worth of story” if WWE Chairman Vince McMahon ever allows him to become a bad guy.
John Cena talks about a potential gimmick alteration
In an interview with GQ, Cena made it clear that he is open to changing his WWE character:
“Would it have been great to be able to mess with the flaws of WWE John Cena? Oh my goodness, I think there’s another 10 years’ worth of story in there, but it’s not my choice. I don’t run the company.”
Rumors started floating around that Cena could finally turn heel after performing for several years as a babyface. It was back in 2012 when WWE Chairman Vince McMahon almost approved of the drastic character change. But, Vince changed his mind. Although he was willing to turn heel, Cena tried to make the most out of the babyface role he was given:
“It takes a certain type of individual to go out there and play your hit song every night for two decades. There are decisions I can make, but I don’t make, ‘Okay, now John Cena’s gonna be a bad guy. I don’t make that choice.’ Then I can be like, ‘Okay, I’m never gonna be a bad guy. How can I nuance a virtuous character?’”
We will see if Cena finally turns heel, something the fans have been waiting for a long time.
