Stephanie McMahon was recently interviewed by ESPN’s Cheat Heat in promotion for WrestleMania 33 and revealed that at one point, she was pushing for John Cena to turn heel.
Here’s what she had to say:
“At one point in his career, I really wanted to see him turn heel,” she said. “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, 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.
When asked if he would ever go 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.”
