Well it's pretty obvious that Cena is coming out of this storyline with the Big Show as the victor, unless WWE decided to shock us again. And it's also plainly obvious that Cena is going to stay in the Main Event no matter what.
So what I'm asking is who is the next guy to face John Cena? I say that there are 3 logical choices. Either he faces Daniel Bryan, he faces a returning superstar, or he finishes off Lord Tensai. I cannot really get excited about Cena-Tensai 3. It looks like they are going to make Tensai even more of a badass, no holds barred guy, but really, we all know that superman Cena is coming out with the victory.
A returning superstar? Maybe The Rock again, and they can build to Summerslam? Lesnar is occupied with HHH. So the only other real option is Austin. This would be a good feud and it would be interesting. But I personally feel that Punk is going to drop the belt to Bryan and then he will start a feud with Stone Cold, which should be awesome.
So in reality the only good choice that is probable is Bryan, as the Rock is not going to be at the 1000th RAW or at any RAW for a while, until his new movie is done filming. So in my personal opinion we will see Cena overcome the odds again and defeat Daniel Bryan for the WWE championship.
