WWE creative is apparently having fun with lawsuit threats again because now John Cena is threatening to sue if Triple H does not allow him his rematch with Brock Lesnar at Night Of Champions 2014. Even if this is part of the story line it certainly seems fairly odd to see the Face of the WWE threaten to sue since his character is typically portrayed as being the company man. So is this the beginning of a John Cena heel turn?
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Brock Lesnar’s WWE schedule has infamously been as a part timer even though he now holds the WWE title belt. But now the rumors are saying he might have signed a new contract that have the Beast making regular appearances on Monday Night RAW and/or WWE Smackdown.
So far the build up to who will be named man enough to strip Lesnar of his belt has everyone assuming Roman Reigns will be handed that role on a silver platter. It could be said that Randy Orton is now a jobber whose role is to build up Reigns’ persona in the lead up to WrestleMania 31 and others say the WWE has killed off the Viper character we used to know and love.
But if we are seeing a “changing of the guard” in the WWE part of that story line might involve having a John Cena heel turn. After all, the foundation for Cena as a heel has been slowly built all year. Bray Wyatt was practically begging Cena to go heel near the beginning of the year. The fact that Cena himself claims he’ll never go heel sets the stage for an internal struggle that’s supposedly raging within. Then there’s those who believe that the rematch of Brock Lesnar Vs. John Cena at Night Of Champions 2014 only makes sense if Cena is going heel.
So now we have this John Cena lawsuit. Even Triple H noted in his weekly chat with Michael Cole that this was out of character.
“Well, you know, there’s a certain point in time of confidence, there’s a certain point in time for aggression and all those things. I get it. But when John Cena said the words to me ‘lawsuit’ — hustle, loyalty, respect, lawsuit — it doesn’t even fit, right? So out of character for John Cena.”
Of course, this is all just about the drama and building up the hype for the rematch since it becomes readily apparent a lawsuit is not even necessary.
“The match is happening. John wants it that bad… Oh, gee, I don’t want a lawsuit. I don’t want to get fired, I might lose my job. John Cena had better be ready because Brock Lesnar is ready. Like Heyman said, at 100-percent, Brock Lesnar can’t be touched. John Cena doesn’t have to worry about stopping a 100-percent Brock Lesnar, I think John Cena needs to worry about surviving a 100-percent Brock Lesnar.”
Do you think WWE creative will be using Brock Lesnar to create a John Cena heel turn?
