John Cena will lock horns with Randy Orton for what seems to be the 800th time in yet another main event of yet another Pay-Per-View. However, this time it’s not for the title unlike most of their previous encounters.
Given the medical absences and other obligations leaving other main event superstars out of the picture, it seems all the WWE can do is recycle old rivalries and re-hash main events. Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan are both absent from injuries. Chris Jericho and RVD (who isn’t the main event draw he once was) have both reached the end of their part-time contracts, and the reigning, defending, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar is doing whatever it is Brock Lesnar does.
This leaves Randy Orton and John Cena for the main event of another event. However, on RAW Monday night, things got a little bit juicier for their match-up.
John Cena was given Randy Orton after he lost his contract on a pole match at last week’s Raw, but the battle has been billed as anything but a “loser’s match.” Instead of being able to take on Seth Rollins in a cell, he will now get his longtime nemesis Randy Orton for a shot at the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar’s Title. Following Cena’s devastating loss to Lesnar at Summerslam, this is the perfect opportunity for Cena to earn revenge against Lesnar.
The Stipulation was added by HHH in what appears to be an effort to get the fans to give this bout some credibility. Only the PPV buy-rate, WWE Network buys and time will tell if it will work
