Thought of the Day: Rock vs. Cena

I get the question of who the face and who the heel is supposed to be in this match from time to time and I’ve come to my conclusion.I have no idea.  That’s the point of this feud.  With Cena, you’re going to have fans that see it both ways the entire time and are steadfast in their stances no matter what.  Half the fans are going to support Cena and half are going to support Rock.  That being said, there’s no reason to try to push one as the face and one as the heel.  Let the fans do what they want (novel concept I know) and see where it goes.  You don’t want to try to force things, and this is a match they can’t afford to screw up.

    Even though a majority of the crowd supports Rock over Cena, from a traditional point-of-view, Cena is the face and Rock is the heel. But considering that Rock is a top ex-wrestler returning, one can’t really expect the crowd to boo him.

    It’s a generational thing. Older fans will side with Rocky. Most younger fans will side with John Cena. The problem is that most kids will cheer for whoever their parent’s cheer. Which is most likely The Rock. Even though Cena’s doing all the face work.
