Raw started with alot of talk, but it wasn't the typical 20-minute promo that opens WWE programming lately. Bagpipes played and Rowdy Roddy Piper entered the ring, followed shortly by his guest, John Cena.
Piper attempted to give Cena the "reality check" that the fans' negativity is starting to affect Cena. After Cena refused to play along with Piper, the Hall of Famer slapped the boy scout.
Then, Cena walked away.
He walked away.
Is Piper right? Will Cena eventually crack, and crack big time as a result of holding it in for so long?
Will the WWE actually let Cena go heel? Can they?
I still don't think so. Cena's new slogan is "Rise above the Hate" and works alongside WWE's anti-bullying campaign. It wouldn't be a good message to Cena's fan base for him to let the "hate" get to him.
Personally, I would love to see it, but the moms buying those kids' tickets won't.
