Re: WWE.COM: Did John Cena 'Pass The Torch' To Ryback On Raw?
I just can't stop laughing at that picture of Ryback. For some reason he always looks funny (or like he's about to cry, if it's video) when he tries to be intimidating.
As for the actual segment it was just really poor writing. Cena has done everything in his power to get the title back from Punk, but has been beaten every time. Except for the last time when it was extremely close in a draw. Cena should have a bigger fire than ever and, according to the backstage segment, he's physically ready to fight in kayfabe. With all this, which would have been a nice background for a HIAC match between him and Punk, he just gives it away because Ryback looks like he just wants to beat someone up? That should be exactly what Cena logically should be dying to do himself. Or infact something that he would be dying to make sure that no one else does before him because if Ryback wins Cena must beat Ryback instead of going after Punk.
I know it's a tough situation when Cena is injured but professional writers must be able to do better. Even in WWE.
