Michael Cole Talks If John Cena Should Turn Heel, Backlash For His WrestleMania Match, Lawler
Source: Sam Roberts
What he thinks of Brad Maddox: "I actually like Brad. I think he's got some potential down the road. He's like a lot of our guys today."
If wrestling is changing: "The business is changing, it really is. We've got a lot of young guys. We've got a great minor league facility, we like to call it, down in Florida called NXT. We've got a lot of young talent down there. You're going to see a shifting of the guard. We have to do it. I mean, you see what's going on at Wrestlemania. A lot of these guys aren't going to be around in a week or two."
If he thinks WWE should turn Cena heel: "I don't. I don't think so. I know that a lot of people are like oh, you don't know what the hell you're talking about, Cole. He drives our company. He's been here ten years. People love him. Kids love him. There's nobody close that sells the amount of merchandise that John sells. I mean, he's just so good for this brand. Not to mention the charity that John does. Between Make A Wish and Susan G. Komen For the Cure, the breast cancer foundation that we worked heavily with last year, that was all John's idea. He came up with the pink ropes and the whole nine yards. Just for those reasons alone, John needs to stay who he is and that's who he is at heart. John is that person at heart. I've known John for years, he's one of my closest friends in the business and that's who he is."
