A match against John Cena on a pay-per-view is not a bad thing.
Some wrestling fans have been quite vocal about R-Truth being booked in a title match against Cena at the Capitol Punishment PPV. Many feel that it is a bad move because Truth doesn't have much of a chance against Cena, who is generally booked strong by Vince McMahon and the writing team.
Fact of the matter, though, is that Truth benefits by just being booked in the match.
In the past, Truth had trouble getting a PPV slot on a regular basis. Now, he's in a coveted spot (a PPV title match against the biggest star in WWE). Fans will view Truth as a top-level guy because he's in there against someone at the top of the ladder.
We all know Truth has a ridiculously slim chance of walking away with the title. We also know that Cena is going to put on another one of his comeback victories after taking a beating. However, if Truth is booked to look like a legitimate threat against Cena, then he'll come out of this a winner.
To look at it another way, it's better to lose a pay-per-view title match to John Cena than to win a pay-per-view dark match against Yoshi Tatsu.
