John Cena is back in the title picture with a win in the Money in the Bank match against Chris Jericho, Big Show and Kane. 

With the win, he muscled his way back into the WWE Championship picture with a guaranteed contract of up to one year.

The chaotic match saw ladders and tables play a large part in the main event.  It even saw a surprise entrant in The Miz. 

Cena, the 10-time WWE Champion, has an opportunity to cash in the contract tonight during Monday Night Raw. 

He was at a disadvantage with this type of match, as Kane and The Miz are former winners of Money in the Bank. Big Show has also competed in this type of match before, and Chris Jericho was the one to invent the concept. 

This makes it hard to prepare for this brutal, pain-enduring type of match. However, Cena celebrated at the U.S. Airways Center, in a match that saw Walls of Jericho, the Attitude Adjustment and chair shots.

Cena may not be the best technical wrestler, but he will bring the WWE better ratings than if one of the other participants had won.

So, now what?  Well, a rematch of Cena and CM Punk could work out if done correctly.  The feud has the potential to be very solid, with Punk as the excellent heel he is. 

Why not a title match at SummerSlam?

It's one of the biggest pay-per-view events of the wrestling year and Cena and Punk would draw well.  That would give WWE executives about a month to setup a good storyline between the two. 

Cena, as WWE's golden boy for the last six or seven years, has proven himself as the main draw.    For WWE diehards, this will not be the best remedy, but he's entertaining and draws in the younger audience.

For this rivalry to come back to what it was in 2011, both guys will need to be at their best in this match.  Cena's going to win his belt back, that's what we have learned when watching the WWE.  He will go over.

It's the perfect setup at SummerSlam.
