I’d like to weigh in here. So, Brock Lesnar dealt John Cena the worst, lopsided, beatdown of his career, and perhaps the most one-sided fight in any WWE title matches history last SumemrSlam. Yes, kids, your hero lost as well as the WWE World Heavyweight title. Awww, how sad on your part, right?
However, Cena invoked his rematch clause. And to be frank, it appeared ridiculous. So, it’s John Cena vs, Brock Lesnar at the Night of Champions PPV event in Nashville, TN.
Let’s take a look back first. Actually, Lesnar wasn’t as merciless as he did before. I know, he threw 16 German suplexes. But come on, is that it? Is that what you do to make up for not making Cena tap on a Kimura lock? Jeez.
On the other end, Cena did not have a gameplan. No offense, no defense, just same, plain shit. Maybe he could have thought of winning the game like way he did on Bray Wyatt, but no. He’s just simply owned at the end of the night.
I remember talking to one of one of the podcast hosts for Smark Gilas Pilipinas, one of the local wrestling fan groups, saying Cena might have a fat chance to lose this one.
I almost agree, until seeing him improve; doing nasty moves one after another against their opponents, like those monstrous Attitude Adjustments (AAs), and even pulling off German suplexes.
Well, again I’m almost convinced. I understand WWE need to have a big boost in Cena’s decision on this. However, everything rolls according to their script, if somebody would see this in a far-flung reality bite, it would appear that Cena’s sudden emergence might be a partly-fluke. Well, let’s hope it’s really for real like Lesnar, who’s been always the real deal in the WWE since his 2012 return (does the series of ‘breaking arms’ segments seems not convincing in your eyes?).
Now, is this the biggest fight of September? I doubt it. It’s not billed as much as one anyway.
Can John Cena really beat Brock Lesnar like the way he did at Extreme Rules? How we actually wish (though honestly, on a personal note, it appeared Cena mhight got lucky out there). Paul Heyman was actually right (in fairness, he appeared unbias in his guesting on Steve Austin’s Unleashed podcast) — John has to go on a darker point of his character to defeat the Beast Incarnate. He has to unleash his other side, something he hasn’t done before (or in case he does so, not in a very long while). He’s simply the ultimate face of the WWE (even if on the storyline, this Reality era claims Randy Orton as its ‘face’).
Some smarks are claiming Cena should turn heel. And maybe that’s the only resort. But at the end of the match though, would Cena really be a heel?
Again, I doubt it. And indeed, he didn't do so after appearing at RAW last Sept. 15, and despite showing reckless and badass-like attitude, setting himself in a massive altercation with Lesnar afterwards.
