WWE Hell in a Cell Results: What's Next for John Cena After Losing the Title?

Alberto Del Rio once again became WWE Champion on Sunday after he defeated John Cena and CM Punk in their Hell in a Cell match. Del Rio took a pipe to Punk, allowing him to get the pin.

Right off the bat, I have to say I am a little surprised by this.

After all, Cena did just regain the belt against Del Rio at Night of Champions. For him to only last two weeks before dropping it—while not impossible by WWE standards—is unheard of by Cena standards. Of course, he didn't get pinned. That kind of thing doesn't seem to happen all that much..

That belt, for better or for worse, belongs to Cena. Anytime it’s not around his waist, the company holds its collective breath, anxiously awaiting the moment that his arm will be raised and he will once again reign as the top dog with the top championship.

Even with CM Punk in the equation this time out, many fans felt that the WWE Title was safe and sound with Cena.
