He's certainly better as a straight heel but his shtick about "real men" doesn't really work for him so he falls back into just being a tough guy and you instantly remember that he has struggled through most of his matches since he has returned. He ends up coming off as this whiny, entitled heel who wants you to take him seriously but doesn't ever back it up.
I don’t think Cena’s promo from last night would have worked at most arenas. They were really behind him.
I think they were behind him because he wasn't in his condescending Super Cena mode. His promo felt genuine for a change instead of a bunch of false bravado. Last week Bray Wyatt delivered another great promo and all Cena did was follow it by attempting to sing Margaritaville and a few dumb jokes. That might work with a less serious opponent but not somebody like Bray Wyatt who the WWE has been attempting to build as a serious threat for several months now. Wyatt holds a clean victory over Daniel Bryan and the Wyatt Family won their feud with the Shield in just the past 2 months alone! It's like when the Rock came back during his feud with CM Punk and started with all the Cookiepuss shit. We already knew that Punk was going to have to job to the Rock, there was was no reason for Rocky to undercut him as well. Besides Cena and The Rock are both faces when they pull this stuff!
