As I sit here after just watching Survivor Series, I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit stunned by how things turned out. In one of the most hyped and anticipated matches of the year, with scenarios and possibilities aplenty, WWE once again blows their opportunity to do something memorable.
Instead it seemed as if the creative team searched online for the most simple finish that no one expected to happen and decided to go with it just to prove everyone wrong.
There is just one huge problem with this idea. Everyone knows that this is not an outcome that can stand. With the current condition of WWE, void of young fresh Main Event Talent, without many of their biggest draws who are sidelined due to injury, there is no way that one of the biggest faces in the history of the company can be "Fired" for long.
Think I'm wrong? Mosey on over to WWE's website and see the language they are using in reference to tonight's outcome. The headline story says it all: "Farewell, John?" Why the question mark?
The question mark is because the WWE knows just as I have stated that they cannot expect to sell a November episode of Raw much less Wrestemania without Cena.
With this being understood the question becomes, "So how does the creative team write themselves out of the corner they have put themselves in?" This slideshow will give several plausible ways that they could explain away Cena being fired and they are in no particular order.
