John Cena and Nikki Bella May Turn Heel Soon

on

John Cena and Nikki Bella may be turning heel soon.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is talk of having Daniel Bryan feud with Cena soon. To play off the “couples in real life” angle, each would have  a Bella twin on their arm.

Reportedly, WWE wants to split the Bellas up and quickly go to John Cena and Nikki Bella being the heels in the program.

As we previously reported, Brie Bella turning face is something WWE officials really wanted. Some believe that having her ringside with the biggest face in the company — Daniel Bryan — will help her push.

Drawback to John Cena and Nikki Bella Turning Heel?

While this is strictly a rumor at this point, it’s always possible.  The primary drawback to something like this actually happening is simple: John Cena. Cena turning heel would reduce his merchandise sales and box office numbers considerably.

Pulling the trigger on a heel turn for Nikki Bella is one thing, but grouping John Cena into the mix might be a bit of a stretch at this point.

    good joke.

    needs to happen, long overdue. But I doubt they will turn John Cena any time soon

    Thats not going to help. As big as a Bryan fan I am Cena will come out the face in that match because of all the kids. Bryan will be the heel.

    see what I mean….if WWE keeps going there is going to be no good guys because all the mcmahons are showing themselves are being bad and wanting bad so that bothers me a lot. I have to fight my battles with a real live devious bad guy, all know him but not all believe but I do because I was part of his life once and this bad guy is out to kill for real so this bad stuff mcmahons got going bother me a lot no good guys are going to be left

    • Larry J

      This isn’t the first time the McMahon were heel. Even in the 90’s and 00’s, hey were the bad guys.

      • penny kurzer

        I also hate it because they are suppose to be supporting good groups. even the devil gives for that to fool people so no I am very disappointed

        • DJ_Schotzi

          you’re crazy

  • penny kurzer

    we need good. too much bad going on in our lives and too much more coming. please show the goods guys winning for a change so it brings a little hope into peoples lives even its not real. it just helps to have the good winning. this may be a winner mcmahons but the problem is if you top people allow all this then who is there left to look up to for little kids watching. they will think bad always wins so go that way. the world is going to be in that spot soon enough so please do something else. don’t change cena or bella twins

  • penny kurzer

    doesn’t matter. spent my life with kids loving them, helping them in many ways and until the last 5 yrs had to stop due to health issues. too many problems took over. I know how they think better than most would think and i’m 63 but the heart is always young and remembers how things went with kids from all ages. we need hero’s not bad guys. the world will have enough trouble soon in the united states big time so lets get heros for now

    • Eric Peyton Smith

      Penny, no offense, but you are taking this WAY too seriously. Everyone knows its entertainment…….except you. Wrestling is no longer about good guys and bad guys. Most of the good guys, in real life, are not really all that good and some of the bad guys are nicer than you think. This isn’t really the soapbox for you to be on. You want to talk about good and bad guys? Go talk to our government. Leave the entertainers alone. They are not the problem.

      • Estell Newton

        This is entertainment we can do without. We’ve all but stopped watching because of t he bs. Does there really have to be heels?

        • Thomas Andrews

          Yes Estell, there does… If heels didn’t exist, neither would stone cold, stone cold’s claim to fame was kicking his boss’s ass over and over again.

          • Estell Newton

            I’d rather watch soaps than watch this and I haven’t watched soaps in over 40 years. There is way too much violence in wrestling if that’s what you want to call it. Looks more like street fighting.

          • Thomas Andrews

            Excuse me? Way too much violence? If you think wrestling is too violent, you probably shouldn’t own a tv at all considering what’s on tv now.

        • Richard Webb

          Makes it more interesting. That way. You have to have Good Baby Faces and you have to have Great Heel Bad Guy’s it make’s some gimmick has to change on a every day challenge. And they give each other pushes the other to be better.

          • Estell Newton

            I agree.  Can’t they just wrestle and forget the acting?  That’s exactly why we stopped watching.

    any news on kane returning

  • tmeister

    If this was all it took to make cena heel…. actually no comment to that

  • Ravi Parekh

    I think its bullshit. Heres what I see right now then:

    Cena comes back and beats ADR for WHC and then either ADR regains (wtf? Cena doesnt lose to anyone, how can he lose to ADR in his 1st title defence?) Meanwhile Orton and Bryan go back and forth and then Bryan comes out on top and Cena is next in line. Possibly.

    Alternatively Cena wins and retains the title at first defence and they switch DB to the WHC title and Orton becomes face, unless the WHC becomes the number1 title again which it wont because raw is bigger than smackdown. Shit story line. Also makes no sense for Cena to come back as a heel, he doesnt have a chip on his shoulder, he looks positive in his rehab videos.

    Cena Bryan has to happen again at some point that much is obvious, it was finite the way it ended because of Cena’s injury, But for WM30 I want to see CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE title.

  • Awesome

    Cena won’t turn heel why because he said who he is outside of the ring is also who he is inside the ring and won’t be a bad guy or change who he is just for television.

    • crazyseandx

      Yeah. Just like how Daniel Bryan is a vegan on tv and irl. Oh wait, he stopped being a vegan irl but stayed that way on TV. You, also, aren’t making your case any better.

  • Wesley

    Cena is not going to turn heel……
    This is what the 200th article about him a rumored heel turn or what ever

  • Gabriel Pitino

    This article is another example of this sites inability to do anything but speculate. Doug McDonald doesn’t know if John Cena and Nikki Bella will turn heel or not. He is just speculating.

    • Nunzio Zurzolo

      100% bullshit! You’re right Gabriel!

    • DougOMac

      He may or may not in the near future. We are just reporting a “wrestling rumor” from a credible source in Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Observer. We never say “John Cena will turn heel,” but that he “may,” which can happen with any superstar at any point in their career. Enjoy reading and debating!

      • Richard Webb

        Sorry i guy’s but i Can Careless if Cena remains Face til his asshole explodes. But i think the whole Good guy 100% all the time. I am very sure he is like that in real life. And i think that is Awesome i really do. But Character are who you are. Maybe you need to tweak it just alil bit. Remember Rapper Heel Cena. See Cena know’s how it already feel’s on both sides of the fence meaning He has been Heel before than turned Face and love him. And Kid’s love him. But like i said he maybe getting Stale i think he need’s to turn. Maybe Nikki want’s him too. Or maybe it is a rumor. I don’t care what the guy does. He got his ass handed to him last night at Summerslam. By Lesnar. Even though i don’t like Lesnar cuz of Mania 30 but you can’t hate on him. If This was Taker’s last match i am angry about it. They should have let him retire undefeated. Vince and Taker was making million’s on it. I vote for Taker to have stayed at 22-0 and retired undefeated but wwe. Robbed us. All of us.

    • Richard Webb

      Um Tonight on Raw a Heel run for Nikki Bella. Which turning Cena heel is coming. If they are gonna push Nikki or Brie and have vendettes. With Nikki and John doing there Heel thing. Bring in Nikki is better than Brie or Brie getting over on Nikki either way they are still too damn hot. Make a storyline about. Some thing about Jealousy. WWF/WWE had Bret Hart vs own Brother Owen but i think they let them run with it. On how The whole I was alway’s been better than you Bret. Segment. It started. At Survivor Series where it was all 4 Hart’s you Had The Rocket Owen Hart, The Hitman Bret Hart, And Bruce Hart, And Keith Hart. And after the match Owen showed magic there. Of a true Heel in the making. Than after Royal Rumble where they were go

      • Richard Webb

        This is continued. Gonna get a shot at Royal Rumble i don’t remember which Royal Rumble it was when Owen ran with a heel and ran with it. They went up against The Quebecers and Finally able to hold The Gold as real Brother’s together. And Owen why didn’t you Tag Me Bret. All you had to do was tag Me. In you know you are too stubborn or no you were too damn selfish and. And wham Owen Kicked The bummed knee. And right there. Started his first run as a heel. But I was gonna say they didn’t have any More Family feuds after the Hart’s had done it. Well yeah you had. Vince vs Shane and The Stephanie vs Vince match. But those were the only one’s i knew of. I don’t even think they had a poffo Brother to Brother Match. Like as Randy Poffo But Randy Macho Man Savage character. Vs Lanny Poffo or maybe As The Genius. And than they had The Divorce of Goldust and Marlena, But nothing like seeing a real life sibling and have to have heart To pull it off i am telling you. Are they wanting to do Bella vs Bella Match or Tag Team.

    In the end it will be the WWE universe that creates the heels and the faces

  • Josh MacArthur

    This article is full of crap. John Cena won’t turn heel because he makes more money than anyone else in the WWE. Plus, he once said that a heel turn is not worth it after all he’s done.

    • bearone7777

      JOSH—–He will, or would do whatever is “BEST” for business—-AS he has stayed inside of this crappy character they locked him in for so long now, I truly wish he would go HEEL, and never change again!!!!!!! I mean how much longer does the guy have about another five-six yrs.?? He is not going to lose out, money wise, he is always going to get his money, he has a lot of things on-going. His gym is making money, and things like that!!! SO A CHANGE WOULD BE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO ME, AND I HOPE THEY ACTUALLY ALLOW FOR HIM TO DO IT!!!!!

        You are so full of it! He’s not going to turn heel because it’s NOT best for business.

    • crazyseandx

      And yet after all Hogan has done for wrestling, he turned heel. After all Triple H has done in WWE, he turned heel back at Summerslam. With these factors and a comment board full of Cena haters, you’re not really helping your case out that much at all.

      • Josh MacArthur

        Just because Hulk Hogan and Triple H turned heel doesn’t mean John Cena will.

        • Iceman_4242

          He’s not saying those reasons alone mean he will turn, he’s saying that it has happened before so it could always happen again. Even though I don’t believe the rumour, ANYTHING can happen…like he said, Hogan did it and it was huge. HHH did it when we thought he never would again….it can happen. But odds are it won’t.

    • AaayJaay Wyatt

      Wrestling fans have a STM. He could turn heel, have a program for the short future and then convert back to face. It wouldn’t be difficult and it wouldn’t tarnish his career. In fact, it’d elevate it.

    • Jim Boatright

      John Cena does Make A Wish and he will NOT do that to those kids.

    • Joseph Douglas

      He has not made more money for the WWE than anybody else for the last 5 years.

    I like this idea… after watching total divas.. i personally believe that brie bella is a natural babyface.. an her an daniel bryan have a lot in common…cena and nikki bella don’t seem to be bad people imo actually quite the con tray, but they do seem to live or be into a flashier lifestyle than brie and daniel to atleast a noticeably degree. I think cena and nikki bella would be a nastyyyyyyyyyyy heel team, possibly beating out austin an debra….looks like a good idea especially if cena is holding the worldheavyweight championship around his waist great idea imo

  • Bez

    if cena does turn heel, and they are ready to break up the shield, that cena should head the group for a few months-year then let infighting some desolve the group

  • tk

    all the fans already boo cena they would except turning heel quickly. the fans of the wwe like or dislike anybody the mcmahans tell them

  • Ken Kuhlman

    Cena has stated many times he will not turn heel so we will see besides Cena not goatface is still the face of the company

  • Corey Thomas

    John Cena does too much outside wrestling to become a heel, especially with kids. I certainly wouldn’t like to see it.

  • Tom Lee

    Cena heel turn ?!
    That is not good for business ..

  • Thomas Dereda

    That decision would be bad for “”LIFE”’ , Cena is all about helping out the many disabled , and under privileged kids , Having him turn heel would ruin his persona , and career

  • Dylan Vermont

    But if they want to turn Nikki Heel they have NO choise turning Cena also , if it’s true that Nikki and Brie will split ( and it’s a big posibility ) what would it be like if Cena is a face and Nikki a heel ? Its like the AJ and Ziggler situation .
    I would say FINALY !!! It would be mutch better for anyone in WWE !

  • Delima05

    Worse article I’d ever read.

    CENA IS NOT TURNING HEEL ANYTIME SOON.

    You’ll be lucky to see it happen at WrestleMania ( # whatever ) once they find Cena’s replacement.

    Maybe 5 + years now when he’s reaching 40+ and has to cut back a bit.

    If anytime was to do it, it was vs The Rock and Mania. Didn’t happen then, won’t happen till 5-7+ years

    I think it’s a long time coming and fans wouldn’t see it coming. I think a Cena Heel turn would be great and change things up since he’s been a face for what, a decade now?

  • John Cena

    ABSOULUTE BULLSHIT ALSO IM AM JOHN CENA PUNKS I BANGED NIKKI AND I BANG BRIE WHEN BRYAN AND NIKKI AINT AROUND AND I DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT NIKKI SO SHE CAN GO TO ORTON OR HOWEVER SHE MASTURBATED ABOUT IN SAN DIEGO AND THAT IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY
