Best Feuds for John Cena After World Title Defense vs. Alberto Del Rio
Survivor Series 2013 has come and gone.
John Cena is still the world heavyweight champion and the true face of the WWE.
He met and defeated his opponent, Alberto Del Rio, with flying colours in his hometown of Boston amidst screaming fans and family.
Not that there were any indications that the outcome would be different.
He is a living, breathing superhero and is now set to continue making history as one of the greatest Superstars of all time.
The next step in his evolution is upon him. New challenges await and an ever greater prize hangs high above, waiting for him to reach out and grab it.
There are only three pay-per-view events left before WrestleMania XXX, which means very important months ahead for the leader of Cenation.
Who will now stand in his way? Which Superstar now dares take it to him in hopes of wresting away that championship belt?
Let's take a look see.
WWE Champion Randy Orton
There can be only one, plain and simple.
Both WWE mega stars hold the top titles, and now both claim they are the face of the company.
That could be a problem, and after last night, the solution is simple: Pit Cena and Randy Orton against each other in what could be the most exciting program since WWE took out WCW.
It is not every day that a scenario like that can happen.
Let's face it, the company is not very determined to push new stars and leaves many who could be (The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, etc.) hanging out to dry.
The focus is on Cena and Orton right now, but only one can really be No. 1.
The World Heavyweight Championship is somewhat relevant only because the Leader of Cenation has it.
WrestleMania XXX is only three events away, and it is time to spice things up.
Randy Orton is no stranger to John Cena, and reviving this feud will force both parties to look deep within in hopes of finding new ways to captivate the audience.
An undisputed champion could also mean a restored classic title belt as well: Winged Eagle, anyone?
Not for nothing, the WWE website went ahead with the superstars modelling it recently.
Look for this to begin tonight live on Raw and to end at Elimination Chamber, where the one who comes out of the structure stands face-to-face with the winner of the Royal Rumble.
The Upper Midcard
Can CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, The Miz and perhaps even Roman Reigns be down the road?
Since there are only two pay-per-views left before the huge Mania blowout, the options are quite limited.
There is little evidence to show that any of the names mentioned above are in line for a title shot, but in WWE, anything can happen.
A wild guess right now would be to insert a few of them inside the confines of the Elimination Chamber to tackle with the man of steel.
Randy Orton will feud with Cena in the coming months, but it would be wise not to bet too much on either man going into WrestleMania as champion.
Cena has earned his place as king of the mountain. His contributions over the years and recent appearances on Total Divas can change the mind of even the worst of the haters.
How will all this play out with The Authority?
Could even Triple H start messing with him?
John Cena has worked with everyone, and some programs seem too recent or overdone to be considered fresh and exciting.
There is one thing left to do besides becoming undisputed champion.
Out there is a force whose power has yet to be humbled. A force no one can stop, perhaps not even John Cena.
All things will have led up to that once in a lifetime moment where darkness and light come together at last.
Undertaker and the Streak
That is correct, ladies and gentlemen.
John Cena's greatest challenge ever will come not for an undisputed championship match but from the man who has never and will never be defeated in a WrestleMania ring.
The Undertaker will not be around forever, and the number 30 is far more majestic than 31, so there is no other way to spin this.
It will be so come April 6, 2014.
Forget Brock Lesnar. John Cena is the man you want.
If there is something that is valued as much as the title, it is definitely the legendary Streak.
Cena has held countless titles and championships but has yet to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
With that happening, it may even open up the possibility of a turn to the dark side.
It would be wise to consider all options at this point in time as it is WrestleMania XXX after all. It must be bigger than big.
Who seriously wouldn't want to see this match happen? It's what's best for business, and it also leaves a spot or two open for others to vie for the WWE championship.
This is a main event-caliber match, feud and moment...none will ever come close to trumping it.
Cena's theme song says it best: The time is now.
Or it's coming, anyway.
Ask not for whom the bell tolls.
2014 Will Feel Like New for John Cena
John Cena is the face of the company and a role model for people worldwide.
The coming new year will be ripe with opportunities and new challenges, provided that WWE doesn't cower in front of them.
Life is about taking chances and moving forward.
John Cena's name is forever engraved in this company's history, and it is up to both Cena and the WWE to continue trying to make magic happen every night.
There are plenty of years left in this man's already legendary career—probably a few more title reigns as well—but there is only one Streak.
All anyone can do now is sit back, relax and keep an open mind to interesting possibilities.
Tonight, Raw begins at 8 p.m. ET sharp!
The Authority will be there, Cena and Orton will be there, and all hell will break loose.
It's what's best for business, after all.
