While making an appearance on the Cheap Heat podcast, Stephanie McMahon revealed that at one point she wanted for WWE to turn John Cena heel.
“At one point in his career, I really wanted to see him turn heel. I wanted it as a fan and I also thought it was the right thing to do, but it turns out I was wrong. And Vince and John… oh yeah [McMahon fought to have Cena turn heel], oh yeah, totally, I did. Yeah, but I’m glad that we didn’t go that way, and I think, now, it would be odd for John to turn heel.”
Stephanie would then indicate that she believes fans would miss the babyface Cena if he did turn heel.
“I guess never say ‘never’ because anything can happen in WWE, but I don’t think I would really miss it. I think that we would miss him. I don’t know that we would miss the heel turn.”
