During Monday Night Raw, stipulations were added to the match that if Johnny Ace loses, he is "fired." Additionally, if any WWE superstar interferes in the match, they are also fired. Shaping up to be a squash match for Cena, right?
John Laurinaitis can't hang in the ring with Cena. The WWE can inflate his wrestling background all they want, but the fact still stands, Cena would demolish Laurinaitis.
Now, this match can go either two ways. Either, Cena wins and Johnny Ace is fired, most likely becoming an active wrestler on the roster, or Cena loses via interference. Clearly, it will be the latter. The WWE did not set up this angle to have their top star win over someone who is essentially a jobber; the WWE is using this feud for something else.
Laurinaitis isn't going to win cleanly over Cena. It makes no sense to bury Cena in this spot. Laurinaitis' only shot at the win will come from outside interference. Brock Lesnar would make sense because he recently quit, but the WWE has already removed him from an angle with Cena. Why return now? The only other viable option is the recently fired Big Show.
Big Show interfering on Johnny Ace's behalf doesn't make sense either. The work by Big Show during the spot where he was fired was impressive. He showed impressive range, and he sold his love for his job. Having Big Show do a complete 180 brings absolutely nothing to the table.
