Will The Miz have what it takes to beat John Cena at Wrestemania?
In WrestleMania, the face almost always wins the title. So why even speculate on who the winner of this match will be? After all, no one really likes Miz as the WWE champion anyway.
Although it's true, I have to admit the truth and give credit where credit is due. The Miz is starting to grow on me as a heel champion. Not only that, but his skills on both the mic and the ring are improving. That, plus the WWE is hyping the Miz up as a future consistent main event-er. That plus this is the main event of WrestleMania all point to this match being a lot less lopsided as many believe it to be.
The result of this match hinges on the involvement of the jabroni-beating, pie-eating, eyebrow-raising, most electrifying man in all of entertainment: The Rock. Whether he will be watching from the sideline or be involved as a guest referee determines the outcome of the match. Also, the gravity of The Rock's promise of "never going away" has a lot of bearing in this match.
Should the Rock's statement be 100% true, then this points to Cena losing at WrestleMania in order to set up the REAL match we wanted to see: The Rock vs. John Cena
And we should all have reason to believe that the Miz will be able to pull off the victory. Customizing a belt is a sign that a wrestler has McMahon support. I believe that the Miz customizing the belt will signify a longer reign as WWE Champion. The customization of the belt occurred too late in the Miz's reign to signify that he will lose the belt at WrestleMania. We should have taken it as a sign that the Miz is here to stay, as WWE Champion.
Lastly, the millions and million of WWE fans have been wanting Cena to turn heel for a while now. I understand where the WWE is coming from in saying that they do no want to turn Cena heel just yet. Despite the heat he gets from the hardcore fans from the Attitude Era, John Cena is WAY over with the crowd, especially young children. Turning Cena heel without anyone to fill his shoes as the ultimate face of the company today is just a ratings disaster waiting to happen...
Enter the People's Champion.
I think I am spot on when I say that The Rock is more than capable of filling Cena's shoes as the top face in the WWE. However, the WWE won't be making plans if The Rock can't commit to a long-term feud due to his acting career.
So what's the best way to resolve this? Have The Rock turn heel instead and spark the feud between Cena and himself; however, this results in Rocky having to job for Cena, which is something Rocky won't be too fond of.
Either way, both scenarios have The Miz retaining WWE gold.
WINNER: The Miz
