The Rock was right all along. John Cena really is a fruity pebble.
Well, at least he will be gracing the box of the brand name cereal for the next few months, as WWE has smartly taken advantage of an easy marketing opportunity and the folks at Post were all too quick to jump right on board with them.
According to Darren Rovell, Cena will be on three million boxes of Fruity Pebbles over the next three months in advance of his big money match-up against The Rock at WrestleMania 28. While that's certainly a huge get for WWE and will do wonders for its top drawing babyface, it does likely signal the end of any further speculation of a Cena heel turn.
That's because it would make zero business sense to turn him now that it's confirmed he'll be gracing products marketed to kids for no less than the next three months. That leads right up to WrestleMania, which means this entire storyline he's currently going through with Kane will ultimately end with his doing what his shirt says on the box above.
Rising above hate.
That doesn't mean the topic won't be up for discussion once WrestleMania is over, of course. We don't know how they plan to book the match and the reception Cena will receive in Miami will undoubtedly be one of the worst of his career, maybe even on the level he received in Chicago for Money in the Bank and his match against CM Punk.
We shall see. In the meantime, it's safe to say we won't be seeing Cena as a heel for at least another few months. Is that okay with you, Cagesiders?
