WWE Over The Limit is the next PPV on the schedule for WWE fans. It’s one of the new pay per views that the WWE has to offer and it looks like the first ever WWE Over The Limit has quite the card. There is so much potential here in this one pay per view it kind of scares me. Still the match I’m looking forward to most is none other than the John Cena vs. Dave Batista match.

I know most of you are wondering why considering the great matches on here like Randy Orton vs. Edge and Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk, but hear me out first. The feud has proven that the two do have some good chemistry. The promos have been amazing between these two. Plus how about Dave Batista, he’s doing some great work if you haven’t noticed. Finally, this could be Batista’s last match in the WWE so it’s got to be a good one. 

First let’s preview what could be a great match at WWE Over The Limit.  

WWE Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Dave Batista (“I Quit” Match)

“Ductape!? Really!? Ductape!?”

This was Batista’s reaction after his Extreme Rules Match with John Cena. At Extreme Rules John Cena won the Last Man Standing match in a very creative fashion. He taped Batista’s legs so that he could not get up for the 10 count, meaning Cena wins. Batista was fuming mad as Cena walked away the champion. Most of us thought that this was the last we’d see of Batista in the WWE, we were wrong.

The next night on Raw there would be a No. 1 contenders match which was originally scheduled as Sheamus vs. Randy Orton. Hold up though, because out came The Animal. Batista got into the No. 1 contender match and would be the winner after newly drafted, Edge speared Randy Orton, allowing Batista to pin him.

Then came the Beat The Clock Challenge. The two would have a Beat The Clock Challenge to determine the stipulation of the match at Over The Limit. Batista faced off against Daniel Bryan and beat him, setting an impressive time. However, John Cena did him better by beating Wade Barrett and winning the challenge. He was supposed to choose his stipulation after, but because of Sheamus he would do no such thing. We would have to wait one more week to hear the stipulation Cena had picked.

The following week, Cena cut a promo on his victory at Extreme Rules. He said that it could be viewed as the acts of a coward so he chose an “I Quit” Match for Over The Limit to finally settle things. He also invited Sheamus out to the ring for reasons obvious to most. It would turn into a four way scrum between Mark Henry (who came to the aid of Cena), Sheamus, John Cena and Batista. Henry vs. Batista was announced for later that night, Batista would destroy Henry before the match could even begin. sending a clear message to John Cena.

Next week in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Cena would get another clear message from Batista. Henry was once again brutalized by the Animal and he didn’t stop with Mark. Batista would interrupt Cena’s match with Sheamus and put him in his submission hold yelling at Cena to say I quit.

There is no doubt in my mind that Batista will be saying, “I Quit!” at the end of this match and then possibly saying something like, “You know what? You don’t deserve to see this (looks at himself) anymore. I quit the company too!” The he would walk out and that would be that.

This has been a good feud to send Batista off on, but it looks like this will be the last chapter of it. John Cena will most likely move on to a feud with Sheamus for the WWE Championship.

Come here fella!

Something you people might want to look out for in this match-up is interference from Sheamus. Sheamus isn’t on the card and I don’t think the WWE will just give him the night off. Look for him to assualt John Cena and possibly Batista too.  

Predicted Match Result: John Cena def. Batista to retain WWE Championship

Like I said, decision goes to Cena, no doubt about it. I’d give this match a good 30 minutes, should turn out to be some great wrestling. Can’t wait to see how Dave Batista walks out on the company, or maybe he’ll surprise us all and stay. Lots of things to look forward to in this one.

Predicted Match Rating: 4 and 1/2 stars

L0oking back at the feud, I got to say it’s been a good one. Batista has been in his best gimmick of his entire career. It’s helped him get better on the mic, much better. His in ring performance has evolved too. I’m kind of disappointed that the WWE didn’t think of this earlier.

The silent way this started, with Batista aiding Mr. McMahon and then coming back to attack John Cena was brilliant if you ask me and the Elimination Chamber idea was a great one too.

While we’re stuck in the past how about that promo Batista cut with John Cena? That was magnificent. Don’t know which one I’m talking about because of all the incredible Batista promos that we’ve had recently? Not a problem at all.

When it came to the Wrestlemania clash, we got a good match out of the two. Maybe not the match of the night, but definitely a good one. They wouldn’t just give us one good match and stop at that though, they wanted to give us more and they did.

At Extreme Rules, they topped their Wrestlemania encounter in a Last Man Standing Match. Although the finish was not how most people wanted it to end and it was rather embarrassing for Batista, the match was arguably the best one that night.

If this patterns continues then the Over The Limit match should be the best one yet. Yet another reason I’m looking forward to it so much and a reason you should look forward to it too.

All good things must come to an end sadly and that is the case here as the match at Over The Limit could and should be the final chapter in this feud. One thing is for sure, we definitely won’t forget Dave Batista after how he has impressed us in recent months. No doubt in my mind this will go down as one of the great heel turns in WWE history.

Well there’s only one last thing to do, watch Over The Limit to see how Batista and Cena dazzle us once more.
