John Cena: What to Expect from WWE Superstar After Over the Limit Loss
John Cena is fresh off a loss to Monday Night Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis after being knocked out by the Big Show at Over the Limit.
Big Show completed his heel turn on the following Raw, and Laurinaitis announced that Cena and Big Show would face each other at the No Way Out pay-per-view.
As Laurinaitis continues to wield more power, here's a look at what to expect from John Cena after his loss at Over the Limit.
Laurinaitis Creates a Heel Stable
John Laurinaitis is in the process of creating a heel stable. David Otunga, Big Show, Lord Tensai and Eve are already in the fold, and Johnny Ace is in the process of adding more heels.
Following Cena's match against David Otunga, Cena was attacked by Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, Titus O'Neil and Darren Young. Big Johnny then proceeded to yell at them for attacking without his permission.
Aside from Big Show, the People Power stable needs more established superstars. Alberto Del Rio is a shoo-in, as is Brock Lesnar whenever he comes back. Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger are squarely in as well. Daniel Bryan is also a strong possibility.
Once Johnny Ace is able to add more star power to his faction, he will be in complete control of Raw.
Cena Loses to Big Show at No Way out
John Cena is going to lose to Big Show at No Way Out. There is going to be some sort of interference by Johnny Ace's faction that screws Cena out of the win. The match will have some sort of stipulation that prevents Superstars from interfering, and it will be a returning Brock Lesnar who beats down Cena.
A Cena loss needs to happen in order to provide legitimacy for Laurinaitis' stable. The stable needs to appear strong in order for their takeover to seem legitimate. Having Cena beat Big Show, the stable's biggest star, removes all momentum that the angle has.
The return of Lesnar gives the stable added star power, and also begins the build towards SummerSlam.
Cena Continues to Feud with Laurinaitis and His Heel Stable

After his loss at No Way Out, Cena will continue to feud with Laurinaitis' stable.
He will continue to represent the good guys of the WWE and will obviously remain the top face in the company. Cena will work a storyline similar to the Nexus angle, as he is the only one strong enough to stand in the face of the villainous People Power stable.
He will continue to get beaten down by Big Show and the rest of the group, and will continually be placed at a disadvantage by GM John Laurinaitis.
During this time, People Power will begin to accumulate more power. Laurinaitis' stable will win both Money in the Bank ladder matches and will also hold some of the title belts. They will continually screw over the rest of the WWE roster and will be the dominant force in the WWE.

The power of John Laurinaitis' stable will result in the return of Triple H in order to take back control of the WWE. He will team with Cena, Sheamus and the rest of the faces at SummerSlam.
SummerSlam will be the fight for control of the WWE. Every match will feature a face against one of Laurinaitis' heels. CM Punk will face Daniel Bryan, Sheamus will take on Alberto Del Rio, Kofi and R-Truth will battle Ziggler and Swagger and so on, with all of the title belts on the line. Cena will square off against Big Show, while Triple H will face John Laurinaitis and Brock Lesnar.
Ultimately, the faces will prevail, returning control of the WWE to the good guys. Triple H will regain control of the company, the belts will be on the top faces, and Cena will be able to prepare to battle The Rock.
