Alberto Del Rio and John Cena look to settle their grudge at “Vengeance” when they do battle in a “Last Man Standing” match for the WWE Championship.
John Cena picked the stipulation when he and Jim Ross defeated Del Rio and Michael Cole on the latest episode of Raw; the winner of that match had the ability to set the stipulation for Sunday’s match.
On Monday, the WWE announcing team was pushing hard the fact that Alberto Del Rio had never defeated John Cena in a singles match. This was obviously being done to remind fans that Cena has had the upper hand in this feud.
I wish the WWE had built this fact up earlier. It felt sloppy the way the WWE waited until the last moment to push the angle that Cena always wins against Del Rio.
John Laurinaitis also made sure to let John Cena know that this is his last chance to get the WWE title from Alberto Del Rio. If Cena loses on Sunday, he will not be getting a rematch.
If this doesn’t scream “Alberto Del Rio victory” then I don’t know what does.
Is the WWE really foolish enough to push Cena as “unstoppable” against Del Rio and then have him win? It would be far too predictable.
Not to mention Johnny Ace gave Cena an out from this feud. By losing to Del Rio, Cena will not be allowed a rematch. This will allow John Cena to turn his attention toward The Rock.
I know some fans are still sitting there and saying “but Joe, how can the almighty John Cena lose a last man standing match?”
By having Alberto Del Rio cheat to win of course. Del Rio will win using devious methods, and this will cause John Cena to whine on the following night at Raw.
However, Laurinaitis will come out and say “sorry” and that will be that. Del Rio gets to keep the title and John Cena loses without having to lose cleanly, because that would somehow make him less of man.
John Cena will then team up with CM Punk, The Rock and Triple H at Survivor Series against Del Rio, the Awesome Truth and Kevin Nash.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
