Now, I'm prefacing this with saying that I don't believe it will ever happen. WWE will never turn John Cena heel again. Ever. This is purely hypothetical.
But what would you do?
Boo The Heels. I'd boo him.
I'd cheer him because I always cheer for the heels.
Boo him because I will always hate John Cena
Cheer him because I always cheer for Cena. Down Since Day One!
I think most people here would cheer because they'd be getting what they wanted, which is why in some ways, a heel turn is completely counter-productive.
If they were to ever do it, it needs to be done in a way that gets him booed by everyone. A couple ways I can think of would be having him end the streak and having him be even more cheesy than before, rather than suddenly becoming a Super Badass.
I chose the 4th option just for lack of a better option. I like Cena, but not sure rather I'd cheer or boo him. It would all depend how he did it and rather it was believable or not.

That being said, I am cheering because anything he does during his heel run will probably be justified. Most of the time I follow the script and cheer whoever is face. But when it comes to John Cena, the emotion is actually real. His haters make you like him. Same with Hunter.
I think Cena would receive mixed reactions, given a standard heel turn. Most of those who cheered him would boo, and vice versa.
I would most likely support a Cena turn, because heels are generally more entertaining, but it will of course depend on what he does to turn heel and his character from that point on. I suppose that is closest to the second option so I picked that.
I cheer for guys based on their ability to entertain me not whether or not they are are a face or a heel. For example. Christian, Jericho, Del Rio have all played both roles in the past 2 years and I have enjoyed both. Del Rio has the weakest character of the 3 but I really enjoy his in ring work. He has good matches with just about everyone.
So with that said Cena's character would have to entertain me for me to cheer him even if he were a heel. If he were the generic WWE pussy heel I would boo him because that doesn't entertain me. I would however cheer a Cena who tended to stand up to faces and sorta shoot on them. In the end I'd be happy with a heel Cena for the sole purpose of its not his current boring role and for the most part he has good matches sans Rock.
I dont go to shows anymore so not like you really get a boo out of me anyway
I would like to see a troll Cena, like after WM when he did a 'heel turn'. Have him kinda walk that kayfabe line and taunting the smarks and such. And like others said, have him still pretty much be the same person and not turn on his fans, but antagonize the others a bit more and act more smarmy and arrogant. I guess when it comes down to it, I'd enjoy him more as a tweener than a full on heel.

Because some of the posts in this thread have shown that to be essentially pointless. One, people cheer heels. Two, I don't believe WWE is brave enough to allow Cena to be someone that everyone would hate, even the people that would say they would cheer him.
I concede. There's no point to ever changing it.
I'd cheer. Chain Gang Soulja 4 Life.
I don't cheer or boo people when im watching on my tv screen so neither i guess..
People would cheer him at first because they think they got what they wanted, but they would soon find out that heel Cena would be just like face Cena in that he would still be almost unstoppable and still have the "superman" come backs, and would start to boo him again.

If Cena turns heel I'll turn heel as well. So of course I'd cheer him. We fight together, we ride together, right now we gonna turn heel together!
Wipe him down with gasoline, till his arms are hard and mean.
From now on boy this iron boat's your home.
Considering that the only heels I genuinely dislike are the ones who flat-out suck (see: Classic Swags) or bore me (see: Classic Swags), I'd probably end up cheering for Cena the way I cheer for every other heel I like. If such an occurrence were to come about, and I were in a live audience, the only booing I would do would be my standard wink-and-nod jeering.
But yeah. It'll never happen. There's no point.
If he was a complete dick, I'd cheer him. If he was a lame heel (like he is a lame face), I would boo him.
I'm kinda at the point where I don't care if he turns heel or stays face. Just make him more serious, stop pandering to the crowd, and I'll be happy.
It would depend on how they handled his character. I've been cheering him since his US title days so I'm gonna stick with that.
he might get a bit more entertaining on the stick but i dont see his moveset or style changing which i dislike so i cant see myself jumping on his bandwagon.
after all the years of suffering his corny bland ass and his ugly belt i think my time to ever get on this characters side is LONG past. the company has ruined him beyond repair has far has im concerned has a fan.
if anything id get a good idea how Heenan felt when hulk turned, a bit justified maybe

To be honest, after thinking about it...I don't think I would cheer Cena ever...I'm so tired of him I would still boo the shit outta him rather he was good or bad.
I would actually be pretty happy if he retired early, not because he was hurt but maybe just because he got tired of it all or something.
I'm just sick of him.
A heel Cena would still be more interesting.

Apathy at this point is my only response.
