During his podcast interview with Chris Jericho, John Cena revealed just how he close he was to turning heel during his feud against The Rock. It was to the point where he spent $5,000 to have new ring gear created for his heel persona. However, WWE scrapped that idea. Instead of asking for a refund, Cena told the seamstress to put that money towards developmental wrestlers that come to her for new apparel. Yet another good deed by Cena.

Some are even saying that he can some day take the torch from John Cena, which is really high praise and hard to believe. Management is a bit concerned with him lately, as they feel that his connection with the audience has died down considerably. It might get worse because he needs time off to heal his injuries.
