Only Viable Cena Turn

Since you actually clicked this, I can safely assume that you didn't just roll your eyes at another "Cena Heel Turn" blog. Bare with me on this one as I think it is actually a great way for Cena to turn heel and actually shows that, if the WWE did do this, they are well aware of their own faults.
1) Put the WWE Championship Match, containing Champion Punk, after The Rock vs Cena.
This is UNFATHOMABLE. Rock v. Cena is the biggest match in awhile and it truly deserves top billing, but I have both logic and reason for this. Logic: Hogan vs Rock was actually 3rd to last at X8--Jericho vs HHH for the Undisputed Title was last. Reason: It plays into the heel turn.
2)Long Title Reign by Punk.
We're talking Survivor Series at the worst. He has to hold that title for a long time and be booked rather strongly--Cena esque, if you will.
3)Continue increasing Punk's air time while decreasing Cena's after Wrestlemania.
4)Book Cena vs Punk
This should happen around Summerslam. Cena has to go under here and go under by tapping. And the less of "Super Cena" we get, the better. I'm not saying "try for an average match", I'm just saying "Book Punk clearly stronger".
5)Have Cena start getting ignored by heels and figureheads.
Faces can still interact with him, but unless their in a match with him, Heels should look at Cena and laugh.
6)Cena runs in on a CM Punk match and smacks him with a chair. This happens multiple times.
Carbon Copy of what happened earlier this year when Punk was on commentary and would attack Cena.
7)Have Punk call out Cena after a few beatdowns and have Cena drop a fantastic promo.
At this point Cena reveals his reasoning for attacking Punk--He's jealous. He's jealous of Punk's ability and charisma. He's jealous of how much the fans love Punk, how much merchandise he sells, how the locker room likes him. He's wants his spot as the face of the company back. And when Punk says "no", Cena flys off the handle and beats him down again. Have Cena just explode--tearing up the ring, attacking Jerry at ringside, even throwing water in the face of a plant in the audience.
And voila: Heel Cena. It takes time, months, decreases our exposure to Cena and provides a realistic point for his turn: He misses his spot. A man who's been the face of the company for so long couldn't just sit there and watch someone else be the face. And it creates a hungry, vicious heel character for Cena to play rather than this "Erbody hates me but I'm cool with it" PseudoHeel character he has now (based on fan reaction).
