Here is a hunch that would lead to the continuation of a Dolph Ziggler/John Cena feud leading up to WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey.
I believe Ziggler will cash in his Money in the Bank contract and claim the world heavyweight title at the Royal Rumble. If that happens, could it lead to John Cena taking on Ziggler for said title at wrestling's Super Bowl in April?
The WWE is set up for more of the same feuds to continue toward the end of the first quarter of the year. And with AJ Lee still in the mix and Big E Langston, there is no telling what will happen with Ziggler's character if he does not cash in soon.
Also add the fact that if Cena is not feuding with Ziggler he is truly on an island, and well, there is nothing really left to be said about what has to happen. Cena and Ziggler seem to be the logical choices to become joined at the hip. The great things about that seem to be the two work well in the ring together.
AJ Lee is the bonus in this triangle.
Cena was the whipping boy in the WWE over the course of 2012, which bodes well for him to come out firing on all cylinders in 2013. He showed he was determined to make it in 2013 last week with his "toast" and "surprise" for everyone's favorite couple.
If Cena is one of the first entrants into the Rumble, then I don't see him taking the Rumble. If he is one of the last in the mix, then expect him to be right there at the end. Question is, will he be able to bring home the goods once he is given the opportunity?
I think there is a lot of potential there should Cena win. Does he face CM Punk again? Does he face The Rock, should he beat Punk for the title? Does Ziggler cash in and challenge Cena?
And don't forget, what happens to Ryback in all this? Could he beat Punk and then face Cena at WrestleMania 29, which I also think could be epic?
So many questions, but just like everything else with the WWE, there are no concrete answers and everything in and out of the ring is subject to change.
