With the revelation on this past Monday's Raw that John Cena is now cleared to compete, do not be surprised if he appears in a match at Sunday's Hell in a Cell.

With an appearance on the event's YouTube pre-show, and the current interactions between him and Vickie Guerrero garnering some buzz, it is not out of the question that a match could be made during the free 30-minute broadcast that would allow Cena to appear on the pay-per-view.

One possibility is a showdown with "Mr. Money in the Bank" himself, Dolph Ziggler. With Vickie Guerrero, the new managing supervisor of Raw, guaranteed to involve herself in Cena's pre-show segment prior to the event, it would only make sense for Cena to find himself competing against Guerrero's on-screen boyfriend and one of the handful of guys World Wrestling Entertainment can trust to protect Cena, bump around for even his most basic stuff and still steal the show.

Add to that Ziggler's recent comments regarding Cena and you have more fuel for a potential bout. Speaking to fellow Bleacher Report contributor (and host of Aftermath TV on Canada's The Score) Arda Ocal over at the Baltimore Sun, Ziggler had this to say:

He's been someone that I've looked up to, but also hated for the last five years, because he is the face, he is the franchise of the WWE. And there's been guys that have become World Champion and WWE Champion who are still second fiddle to what John Cena and whatever he has going on in his life. So this guy is the guy to be in the ring with. This is the guy to go toe to toe on the mic with. This is the guy to be in the matches with that you will be in the main event.

And instead of everyone going 'Hey you had a great match. You should have been in the main event' people will be telling me 'Hey, it was a great match. There's a reason why you're in the main event out there with John Cena, because you do what you do better than everyone else.'

Cena could also find himself physically involved in the Hell in a Cell main event. He has been involved in a feud with CM Punk for several months and has publicly backed Ryback over the course of the last week. It would only make sense for him to involve himself, even physically, in the main event, perhaps to set up the Survivor Series main event.

Regardless of how Cena is involved in Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, it will undoubtedly have a great effect on what is in the immediate future of World Wrestling Entertainment. Rest assured that whatever Cena does at Sunday night's show, it will not be limited to pre-show activities.
