This is why we all want to spend $55 on the PPV: to see if John Cena finally turns heel. Now that he is the ref, it is becoming more and more likely that there will NOT be a clean ending. In fact, they might as well make this no DQ just to make no doubt who the winner is. Now, here's some background on the angle.
As we all know, John Cena is a reluctant member of Nexus. Randy Orton is the WWE champion. Wade Barrett is the challenger and leader of Nexus (or is he?). Neither of these men particularly like each other. Orton distrusts Cena. Cena despises Barrett. Barrett hates Orton. This is an intriguing feud to say the least.
Initially, Cena is actually a decent ref. He calls it as evenly as he can. Barrett and Orton both are uneasy but go along with the match. Since it is a no DQ match, Orton and Barrett duke it out throughout the ring. Orton RKO's Barrett on top of the announcers table. Barrett hits Wasteland on Orton on the ramp. It's brutal to say the least.
Then like a certain main event for the last TNA PPV, the Raw GM finally comes out. That annoying beep interrupts the match. While Michael Cole runs his yap, Cena gets RKO'd! The crowd goes nuts! Barrett is confused. Cole announces the GM will come out now.
"Time to play the game!" The new GM comes out with a sledgehammer and a microphone. He then approaches the ring as Orton and Barrett are nervously awaiting his verdict on the match. Cena, now just getting up from the RKO, is also in the ring. The crowd's tension is palpable. All the intrigue is playing out right before their eyes. All the eyes are glued on the TVs throughout the WWE Universe.
Triple H then gives John Cena the sledgehammer. Cena is torn on what to do with it: hit Orton or Barrett. Wade tells him: "It's all about a bigger picture!" Orton tells him: "Don't you dare!" He makes the hit heard round the world, he nails Randy Orton with the sledgehammer, not unlike Jeff Hardy hitting Anderson and Angle with Hogan's crutches. Barrett picks up the win easily. John Cena has finally turned heel. The IWC rejoices. All the little kids cry. The landscape of the WWE has changed forever.
Winner (and new champion): Wade Barrett
We end the broadcast with a shocking John Cena and Triple H heel turn. Triple H is revealed as leader of Nexus and anonymous GM. John Cena was gradually convinced by Wade Barrett and Triple H to join them. This is the bigger picture Wade referred to. Triple H taking over WWE from Vince McMahon. That's why Nexus attacked Vince. All the Nexus guys come out to deafening boos.
They celebrate their victory until... "If you ssssssssmmmmmmmeeeeeeelllllllll, what the Rock is cooking!" The fans go from sad shock to happy shock. The Rock brings all the guys Nexus beat down on, including Bret Hart, David Otunga and Vince McMahon, to attack the Nexus. Everyone but John Cena and the Rock are outside of the ring. They have an epic stareoff as the show goes off the air. Monday Night Raw is now must see TV.
So, let the Rock ask you a question. Were you just picking your nose while reading this? Stick it in Hermie!
