John Cena was booked every bit as strongly as Brock Lesnar on Monday's Raw.
In a main event match against top star Bray Wyatt, Cena dominated his WrestleMania XXX opponent with suplexes. It was no secret WWE was telling a story of a better, faster and stronger Cena. One who would present stiffer competition than the Cena who showed up at Staples Center last Sunday.
So does this mean Cena is a legitimate threat to beat Lesnar in their rematch at Night of Champions? Possibly.
But should he? No.
Lesnar's last two victories have changed the landscape of WWE while affecting long-term business. These wins were showcased on the proper big-four pay-per-view stage, as Lesnar ended Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania before beating Cena at SummerSlam.
Lesnar's wins have been so meaningful that when he eventually does lose, it shouldn't be during a less prestigious pay-per-view like Night of Champions.
With Cena being built up and then some, this will make it even more impressive if Lesnar is to pick him apart yet again while leaving Cena with an even more compelling story as a top star in decline.
