Dealing With Cena

John Cena has been the top performer in WWE for a number of years now. That may not please a lot of people and never has a face been booed so much, so often in the company. Even Roman Reigns struggles to get the heat this fan favorite has. Now he’s returning to in-ring action, just what can WWE do with the 15-time champion?
Cena Needs Flair
The final line of that last paragraph sums up one of the main stories WWE can employ with John Cena. He’s only one title win away from equaling the record set by Ric Flair. Will WWE put John Cena in the title picture over the coming months? He’s already had several matches against AJ Styles and that’s not a feud that we really want to see again so soon. Cena could well be in the Royal Rumble, so check odds at Betway for that important match. It’s unlikely he’ll win that to get a title match but there’d still be time to get a title shot.

In time though WWE will want to push ahead with the “can he equal the record” storyline and there’s a danger they may miss out on a great storyline. Ric Flair just happens to be in the company again but he’s over on Raw. Most recently he’s played a part in the Charlotte vs Sasha Banks storyline but why not move him over to Smackdown? Here’s how it goes. Cena gets pushed into title contention again, perhaps after WrestleMania season and continually tells us how he’s going to equal Flair’s record. Cue music and out comes Flair (at that point a fan favorite) who tells Cena how he’s not fit to equal his record. He then allies with whoever is champion at that time and does everything he can to stop Cena winning the title. I’ll have that creative contract whenever you want Vince.
The Phenom Awaits

That record bid might come sooner than you think. The rumors are that we’re finally going to be getting John Cena vs The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33. Cena is at that stage of his gradually winding-down career where he needs to be doing something he hasn’t before. For years he’s been a face and a heel turn is well overdue but how would that affect his merchandise sales?
He’s never faced The Undertaker at WrestleMania so that is at least something new. The match lacks appeal though with the streak over but there are ways to spice it up. Why not kill two birds with one stone and put the title on The Undertaker one last time by beating AJ Styles at the Royal Rumble? Cena can then get a title shot and go for the record in a match where Cena makes history and The Undertaker has to retire if he loses. 

A stipulation like that would add spice to the match. Cena could well turn heel, fans boo him anyway and if it is The Undertaker’s last match, who’s going to boo him? Link Flair into the story for another unorthodox alliance for Undi and you might just have box-office dynamite. It might not even be harmful turning Cena heel for a few weeks. Remember the Lesnar T-shirts on sale before he beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania? Go down the same route with Cena and watch the sales rocket.
John Cena is still box office in WWE even though he does have more outside interests. He’s becoming a part-time WWE performer but if handled right, he can still be the top guy in the company.
