Former Plans For Cena to Turn Heel Revealed

John Cena defeats Kane, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns for vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship

During a recent edition of The PWTorch Livecast, ex-WWE writer Kevin Eck revealed to host Wade Keller that back in 2012, plans had been set in motion to turn John Cena heel. He said that most importantly was the fact that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon had agreed to those plans.

Eck stated that even though Cena’s planned heel turn would indeed happen, and although the final plans to make the turn itself happen were still being worked out, McMahon changed his mind at the last minute for two different reasons. The first reason was due to fear of Cena’s heel turn not being successful, and the second reason involved McMahon not wanting to risk losing Cena’s huge merchandise deal that he had at the time.

Eck also stated that if Cena’s planned heel turn had been successful, then Sheamus would have been “highly considered” to be WWE’s top face instead of either Randy Orton or CM Punk.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
