At the recent San Diego Comic Con Event, 16-time WWE Champion John Cena spoke about playing a villain role in movies, but not turning heel in WWE. As Cena explained, portraying the bad guy in movies is a way for his fans to see that side of his persona, without him ever actually turning heel in WWE.
Below is what John Cena said:
“I have had a great career in the WWE and for that entire time I have been the good guy and that kind of went into my films so far, and now it doesn’t seem like my character in the WWE will ever evolve into that bad guy role that perhaps a lot of people have wanted; so this is kind of a way for my fans from that aspect of my career to see that side of me.” “So, don’t expect heel John Cena in the WWE — that’s Inside Baseball talk for some of you — but it means bad guy John Cena isn’t happening there, so this is that chance for me.”
