John Cena is the biggest star in professional wrestling, or as WWE wants to call it, sports entertainment. He sells the most merchandise, gets the most promo time and wins the most matches. Alberto Del Rio, the current WWE Champion, is a great young star with loads of potential, but much like of stars before him, he will eventually succumb to the money machine known as John Cena. WWE has put the belt on him 10 times already—here's five reasons why he will win it again this Sunday.
Del Rio is a great young star, but he's not immune to be given the proverbial de-pushing by WWE.
The current WWE Champion, Alberto Del Rio, is great. He has a great look, good on the mic and a sick finishing move. Even his entrance makes him look like a star. Despite having everything he needs to be a star, WWE is not too keen on giving a young guy the ball and letting him run with it.
Whenever WWE thinks the ratings need a boost, they put the belt on John Cena. Whether it's right or wrong, it's what Vince McMahon and WWE has done ever since Cena became a main eventer in 2005. He's the safe option.
Survivor Series is the next pay-per-view after Vengeance and it's in Madison Square Garden—instantly making it a bigger event than it already is. On top of that, The Rock is supposed to be in the building and WWE wants to begin the build toward John Cena vs. The Rock at Wrestlemania XXVIII, and it would kind of hurt that build if Cena doesn't have the steam of being WWE Champion with it.
The build for The Rock vs. John Cena will last a year – never before seen in WWE.
As any wrestling fan knows by now, The Rock is scheduled to face John Cena at Wrestlemania. With this being a year in the making, it is only going to be icing on the cake if Cena is carrying the WWE title into Wrestlemania. After Vengeance, Cena will have around five months as champion to build the match.
John Cena is a 10-time WWE Champion – a record according to WWE. He has beaten everyone in the wrestling business, including much bigger names than Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio is a star that deserves the push he's getting, but WWE has given young stars the push only to take the rug from beneath in favor of the bigger star John Cena. He sells the most merchandise and always gets a reaction from the crowd, good or bad. Cena has reached a level in his career where he doesn't need the belt to get over with the fans, but with the WWE machine firmly behind him, expect at least two or three more championship reigns before it is all said and done for Cena.
