Storyline wise having Cena win the Rumble to face Rock at Mania is just the right way to book things instead of some clusterf***.
The PPV is called Elimination Chamber. They have 2 every year, they're not going to take one away, ESPECIALLY the Raw one, the main one. What sense does it make to have a PPV called Elimination Chamber with a SmackDown Elimination Chamber match only?
No, it's not the right move either, the Rumble winner should be new, they should be skyrocketing someone off the momentum of a Rumble win. Cena has peaked in every way imaginable. Not to mention, the Royal Rumble winner has gone for the SmackDown storyline pretty much every year since 2004, with the exception of 2009 where Orton faced Triple H. Other than that, every year they go to the SmackDown story.
I'm telling you, Ryback is winning. The Rumble winner is not complicated, it's down to one or two people every year. I figured out Sheamus was winning the Rumble shortly after he turned face. Jericho and his cryptic end of the world promos kinda put a bit of doubt into that, especially considering he was going to face Punk, but low and behold, it happened, just like they had been setting up. The only way Ryback doesn't win the Rumble is if he gets injured again, or he's already the champion.
Seriously? He got a title shot just because. They can do 1 EC for the SD title and put Cena's Mania shot up for grabs on the Raw side of things to hold them over. I really don't think they'll give it that much thought. Rock wins the title, Cena wins the Rumble and they won't give a fuck what happens in the interim between their match.
Why would FIVE other people get a shot at Cena's WrestleMania shot. That's insanity. That's the type of thing you do for a personal feud like Rey vs Orton, not between 6 people, let alone on a PPV called Elimination Chamber. Raw is going to have an Elimination Chamber, they're not going to have the name of the PPV represented by SMACKDOWN.
Cena's not winning the Rumble, I'm telling you. They're setting up Ryback to go in there and kill everyone. Cena is already made anyway, and Vince is so far up Ryan Reeves ass he can see into his stomach.
