This Sunday WWE Champion Randy Orton will defend his belt against season one NXT winner Wade Barrett with John Cena in his corner.
Orton won the WWE Champion at the Night of Champions PPV in September in the six-pack challenge elimination match, in which he defeated John Cena, Chris Jericho, Wade Barrett, Edge and former WWE champion Sheamus.
Wade Barrett earned his WWE Championship match after he won a battle royal on RAW to determine the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship. Wade Barrett and John Cena were the last two men standing in the ring when Barrett demanded that Cena eliminate himself so that Barrett could win the match and challenge Orton for the belt at Bragging Rights.
As the new member of nexus, Cena had no choice but to take the orders of the Nexus leader.
Cena was forced to join the Nexus after he lost his match against Wade Barrett at the Hell in a Cell PPV. Due to the stipulation of the match, in which the nexus would have to break up if Cena won, but if Cena lost he would have to join Nexus, Cena then had to join Nexus.
Cena’s original plan was to destroy the group from the inside but after the general manger of RAW gave Cena the orders to follow the Nexus group otherwise he would be fired Cena soon fell in line with the rest of the group.
This marks the first time since being on the main rooster than Randy Orton has been the face in the match with Cena in the heel corner.
The match sets up a lot of storyline possibilities for all three wrestlers involved and if executed right could be perfect.
But what will happen is still unknown, so I am going to explore what could happen.
