NXT World Order
The Viewer’s Choice main-event saw C.M. Punk voted in to take on WWE Champion, John Cena. In regards to WWE’s fearless champion, wrestling fans in attendance chanted, “You can’t wrestle!”
For those that followed Punk’s career prior to WWE can appreciate the elements that the ROH graduate brings to the WWE.
Yet, in what was beginning to become a one-sided match, because WWE will not allow anyone to best John Cena, turned into something else entirely. Wade Barrett, winner of the first season of NXT, came out to ring side. Wade Barrett is entitled to a championship match on pay-per-view, but that’s not why he came out there.
He was pensive for some reason, and it wasn’t until the camera panned to Michael Tarver that fans started to notice the yellow arm bands with the distinct “N” at its center.
All eight NXT rookies from Season 1 came out, and at first they were just attacking C.M. Punk and the S.E.S.; possibly to allow Barrett some face time with Cena. But out of no where, David Otunga knocked out the referee, and then everyone started ganging up on Cena.
NXT not only had the hit on C.M. Punk and John Cena, but they started attacking Matt Striker, Jerry Lawler, (Michael Cole ran away), Justin Roberts, and the time-keeper.
Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) started forcing Justin Roberts to tap out. And then later looked into John Cena’s eyes screaming, “You are not better than me,” and then spit in his face. Bryan Danielson made a big stick of how WWE likes the guys they build themselves instead of the best person for the job. If Danielson would have a gripe with anyone, it would be with John Cena.
Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, Skip Sheffield, and Darren Young also took turns in beating down John Cena as well as dismantling the ring and announce booth. They even continued to deliver punishment to C.M. Punk whenever permissable.
Heel, babyface, WWE official, announcers… it didn’t matter who you were, the NXT invaders turned on anyone and everyone associated with WWE.
For 15 weeks, WWE had put these eight men through contests and matches. And while WWE management felt that they could judge who were worthy by their standards, NXT were not only fighting back, but provided their thoughts on what they think of the WWE.
No Cenation in WWE Locker room
Did anyone notice how no one came out to help John Cena?
Rey Mysterio and Jack Swagger were on standby as possible competitors for Cena, but they were nowhere to be found.
United States Champion R-Truth could have gone out there to settle down his former rookie, but he didn’t. What’s up, with that? John Morrison, a pro for NXT season 2, was a no show either.
The Great Khali, Mark Henry, Kane, and Big Show are WWE’s resident giants who could have easily taken care of the situation. Not a single giant to be found.
RAW was governed by two GMs for a night, and neither of them decided to exercise any authority throughout the whole mess.
John Cena is the ultimate WWE poster boy, and it’s obvious that everyone in the locker room is sick and tired of it. Because no one in the WWE locker room cared enough to lend a hand to the announcers, fellow WWE Superstars, or the ring that they sacrifice their lively hoods everyday in.
As far as they’re concerned, John Cena got what was coming to him.
