CM Punk vs. John Cena has been one of the best rivalries in WWE history. Dating all the way back to June of last year, John Cena and CM Punk have had excellent matches.
This year has been no different. Although the rivalry was put on hold in order for Punk to feud with Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan, WWE ended up back at Cena and Punk. Their match at Night of Champions had many viewers on the edge of their seats.
Cena underwent elbow surgery to remove bone chips on September 20. Many thought that since there was six weeks between Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell, Cena would be back in time. However, officials within the WWE aren’t sure about Cena’s status.
WWE introduced CM Punk to Ryback during a segment with Mick Foley. They have been teasing a possible CM Punk and Ryback match. Now with Vince McMahon announcing that Punk has to choose between Ryback and Cena, who knows what the WWE Title match is going to be.
I believe Punk will choose Cena due to the fact he is not 100 percent. Plus, it gives the fans the impression that Punk is dodging Ryback. Right now, Punk taking on Cena at less than 100 percent is still better than Ryback, in my opinion.
Ryback is way over with the crowd. His time in the main event will come. I think Ryback needs to be in a feud with a veteran like Big Show before jumping to the main event scene.
Regardless of who his opponent is, CM Punk walks out of Hell in a Cell still WWE Champion.
