Then lo and behold the Most Electrifying Man of All of Entertainment returned to the WWE, accepted a WrestleMania payday, and whooped John Cena’s Candy Ass before returning to Hollywood.
The Rock was indeed considered Cena’s equal–to others he was greater–but before a possible Rock-Cena II could take place, Cena was forced to focus on his next challenge–Brock Lesnar.
The Pain came and went. Brock Lesnar out muscled and out matched Cena in every way imaginable, but the greatest opposition WWE could have ever mustered up quit following his loss to Cena.
So just like The Brahma Bull, Lesnar was one-and-done. So what then, John Laurinaitis? Who were the WWE kidding when making that match? Clearly Big Johnny didn’t have the muscle mass to over power Cena, and rather than sign Lesnar to a contract worthy of his talent, WWE went the route of a Big Show heel turn.
In the most inconceivable storyline, The Big Show–now siding with the man who fired him–was said to be done with WWE’s “dog and pony show.” The Giant was not only larger than Cena, but he also possessed the natural strength to annihilate Cena.
Yet, while Show could destroy John Cena, no one wants to see it. The Big Show “reign of terror” has been seen before, and frankly people are tired of it. So who’s left?
Lord Tensai? He’s lost cleanly to both Cena and WWE World champion Sheamus in non-PPV matches. So unless WWE can make Ryback into a formidable opponent, John Cena has no equals.
Sure there are plenty of wrestlers that can out wrestle John Cena, but not many who can out muscle John Cena.
WWE may have to look elsewhere if they plan to keep interest on John Cena. Perhaps TNA’s Matt Morgan, or ROH’s Tommaso Ciampa and Michael Elgin?
