Re: John Cena vs. CM Punk #1 Contender's Match Next Monday Night
There's just no way. I think some are missing the non kayfabe point of this match.
1. It's because there is no Rock next week, so WWE has built up a marquee main event to help draw ratings.
2. They've already led with the "redemption" line for Cena. He's going to beat both men whom stood in his way in the past. First, Punk next week, then Rock at WM. Also, it's an explainable and kayfabe way to get Punk out of the title picture.
I would be more shocked than I've been in quite some time if they make it a triple threat match. It's just not happening in my opinion.
The sole purpose is to draw ratings on a week when the WWE Champion won't be there, and to make Cena look strong and have super momentum going into Wrestlemania. I think it's as simple as that really.
