The Leader of the Cenation took to his Twitter and uploaded the trailer of ‘WWE Evil’. This is a series where the WWE Universe will get to see the behind-the-scenes of some legendary heel characters throughout the history of the company.

In the trailer, there are various WWE veterans and even Hall of Famers who will appear in this upcoming 8-part series. Interestingly, Cena will voice the narration in this series. The Peacemaker actor also revealed that the original series will premier on March 24th exclusively on Peacock.

“For heroes to be heroes, we need villains. For triumph to feel triumphant, we need struggle. For good to overcome … there must be evil,” he wrote.

There have been multiple relentless heels in WWE

The series even has former WWE Superstar and two-time WWE Hall of Famer, Ric Flair in one of the episodes. Many other heels like The Miz, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Hulk Hogan, and even Stephanie McMahon will also feature in the series.

The series celebrates how the heel characters in WWE really help to captivate the audience and make the storyline more interesting and gripping. Eventually, the biggest example is Randy Orton. The WWE Universe still remembers how ‘The Viper‘ dissed the legendary Eddie Guerrero just days after his death.

Even to this day, Randy Orton shows some heel antics and the WWE Universe doesn’t know when the former WWE Champion will strike. However, some wrestlers are born to play heel characters, while some are a perfect fit for a babyface character.

Eventually, John Cena fell into the latter category. The 16-time world champion has been a babyface for most of his career. However, ‘The Champ’ was also an obnoxious heel during his earlier days in the company.
