So, the WWE Title has a new No. 1 contender.
R-Truth's recent heel-turn has been one of my favourite story lines in the WWE for as long as I can remember. Not since Triple H and Shawn Michaels' first feud, way back in 2002, have I been so captivated.
Truth is in the middle of a massive main event push since turning heel. He has leap-frogged the likes of Alberto Del Rio, CM Punk and Jack Swagger into the top-heel spot on Raw.
An altered move-set, a new finisher and the abandonment of his entrance music signifies a whole new direction for him—and the only way is up.
Then we come to John Cena, the face of the WWE.
While he's never been a favourite of mine, he has recent started to grow on me (to the point where I can watch him on TV without rage). However, I don't agree with his holding the WWE Title—I don't think he needs it.
While he is currently the biggest baby-face that the company has had since The Rock, Cena has proven that he doesn't need the title to draw. His feud with Wade Barrett and the Nexus proved that.
Seeing R-Truth beat John Cena cleanly for the title is a bit of a far-fetched idea. However, I don't want the finish to be a complete screw-job. Here's what I would love to happen: an element of trickery somewhere, leading to Truth hitting his new finisher on a distracted or stunned Cena and then pinning him for the title—that would definitely satisfy me.
But here's what I think will happen: I think, without a doubt, that we're going to have a showcase of Super Cena. R-Truth will dominate before Cena will get back into the game. I think that R-Truth will probably interrupt this burst of momentum and try an underhand heel tactic to win—which will be spotted or reversed by Cena, who will then hit the AA for the pin-fall.
