Finally, as we reach the main event, we have two superstars with extensive experience at No Way Out.
The Big Show: Overall NWO record: 2-4.
In 2000, The Big Show defeated The Rock to become No. 1 Contender for WWF Championship match at WrestleMania 2000. In 2001, he defeated Raven for the Hardcore Championship.
In 2003, he lost in a singles match to the Undertaker. Kurt Angle defeated The Big Show and John Cena in 2004 to become the No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XX.
In 2005, he lost to John Bradshaw Layfield in a Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship. In 2009, The Big Show lost in an Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE Championship, which Triple H won.
The statistics don't bode well for the World's Largest Athlete. Since winning his first two NWO matches, he has gone 0-4, including a main event steel cage match.
John Cena: Overall NWO record: 3-2.
As mentioned above, Kurt Angle defeated The Big Show and John Cena in 2004 to become the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XX. In 2005, Cena defeated Kurt Angle (the culmination of a three-week, eight-man single elimination tournament) to be the No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 21.
In 2007, Cena and Shawn Michaels defeated Batista and The Undertaker in the main event. In 2008, he defeated WWE champion Randy Orton by disqualification in a WWE Championship match.
In 2009, he lost in an Elimination Chamber Match for the World Heavyweight Championship, which Edge won.
As far as one-on-one matches are concerned, Cena is 2-0 at NWO. The statistics are in his favor, as The Big Show is 2-2 in one-on-one matches.
Although the statistics seem to point towards a Big Show win, the odds aren't staggering. Plus, the statistics don't take into consideration the fact that either John Cena or John Laurinaitis will be fired as a result of the match.
With that additional stipulation, I am putting my money on The Big Show. Big Johnny is far too over as a heel for his role to be finished, and only the youngest and most naive fans would believe that Cena would ever actually get fired.
As far as the stories are concerned, I think they unfold much better with The Big Show getting a cheap victory over Cena. My guess is that Vince will turn on Cena, or else this is just the beginning a drawn-out feud pitting Team McMahon vs. Team Johnny.
Either way, my prediction is a win for the World's Largest Athlete.
