Hittin’ It Raw-Dawg: The Special Stipulation Cena vs. Lesnar Needs To Have
(Maximum Sports Channels – Joseph Randazzo) John Cena’s win over Randy Orton solidified him as the number one contender for Brock Lesnar’s WWE Championship. We are almost in November and Cena has essentially been number one contender since mid-August when he lost the championship. I have always been a Cena defender but in this case, how many more times can he and Lesnar face off? It would be fine if they squared off every month but with Lesnar’s schedule, he is not guaranteed to be at every pay-per-view. Survivor Series will mark the second straight pay-per-view Lesnar will miss and by that account we have not seen the championship since people were not so worried about Ebola.
With a limited schedule you almost expect more out of a Lesnar match. In this case we will get the third straight defense against Cena and by the time that happens, it will only be his first match in five months. I am a “Let’s Go Cena” guy and even my ass is getting a little antsy thinking about this. Since this is the match though there needs to be a special stipulation to insure Cena cannot be champion for as long as Lesnar holds the title if he loses. If I remember correctly Chris Benoit was stuck in a similar story back in 2004 when he could not beat Lesnar.
Throw this stipulation on Cena and at least the match means a little more. Not only would Cena have to fight for his life, he would have to fight to stay relevant. The blandness of this could have easily been avoided if at Summer-Slam Cena would have stayed off TV after that crushing loss. This way he could have possibly won the Rumble and then win the championship against Lesnar for a 16th time, in style. If it works in Rocky III, it will work in WWE.
