WWE has dropped the ball, again.

When WWE introduced the Nexus, it was a brilliant move. The company had figured out how to quickly elevate several new wrestlers all at once. When they added John Cena to the group, the story become even more compelling. The possibilities were endless.

One of the top stories of the year is the one where fans were left wondering if Cena was actually going to be fired by Wade Barrett, the leader of Nexus. The storyline led to an abnormally high anticipation of a WWE title match between Barrett and then champion Randy Orton. At the end of the night, Cena did the right thing and cost himself his position with WWE.

From the time that the PPV ended to the time when Monday Night Raw started, there was a big buzz going through the internet wrestling community. Everyone wanted to tune in for this as much as they wanted to see what would happen after Vince McMahon's character was apparently killed a couple of years back. The anticipation was that high.

The thud we heard after that was the ball being dropped.

WWE never gave the impression that Cena could be "fired." Not only was he constantly on TV, but he was also getting involved with the wrestlers. 

None of the writers bothered to explain how Cena was getting away with this. To add realism, they should have explained how Cena circumvented the legal system on a weekly basis. They also should have added additional security to make it seem even more real. They needed to have Cena absent from TV for a couple of weeks to add an air of mystery to the entire thing.

Instead, WWE took the easy way out, again.
