I've been holding on to this post for a while now.....lurking in the shadows.....watching the story move and develop (and undevelop, as it has in the past month). I've seen the beatdowns, walkout, power shift, tag request, and response. The Rock and John Cena vs. Miz and R-Truth at Survivor Series. Normally, I'd do some reflective posturing right about now and think about how hard John Cena is going to have to work and how many of Vince's moveset rules he'll have to break to make Wrestlemania something worth watching, but this time I won't. Instead, I would like to give all of you the way things NEED to go down in order for this storyline to hold together long enough to make it to Wrestlemania, let alone getting people to buy it.
"The People (yeah, all of us) have been saying John Cena is stale and needs something added or taken from him in order for him to become relevant again. I say Survivor Series 2011 could go down in history as the day Cena sold out. Sure, he and Rocky shared top billing, but that PPV NEEDS to be special. The Rock is the man and now is the time. The PG era NEEDS to end right here.
The Miz and R-Truth begin their offense, putting every detail into wearing down Cena, who can take everything the world throws at him. It all comes to the desperate tag to The Rock for the momentum to shift, but Miz and Truth keep the heat on, not allowing Cena to tag out. In what appears to be a last ditch effort, Cena gets a tiny breath of life and manages to get to the ropes, tagging in The Rock. Rocky jumps into the ring, cleaning house and posturing to the crowds; the teeming masses who paid to see the most famous team-up to date and that's when it happens. It happens in the instant Rocky stands on the middle ring rope to pose for the fans. Cena lines up and delivers. ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!!! Miz and Truth capitalize and together with Cena beat The Rock into OBLIVION.
The Rock goes away for December and the announcement is made that the match is still on for Wrestlemania. Whether he goes to the video feed or has a personal assistant send the message....it doesn't matter, so long as the fans can keep him in the forefront. He's gone until the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania perhaps even two weeks before to have the mandatory staredown to sell the PPV out of control. Cena needs to turn and there has NEVER been a more perfect time OR place for that to happen than at Survivor Series, a PPV that has historically specialized in controversy.
You want WWE to be interesting again? Put together the nWo with John Cena leading the charge, using the same formula I've already laid out in an earlier post (Invasion of Privacy, in case you want to look it up). To me, I couldn't care less what kind of stipulation you put on the match so long as the faction stays out, giving the two guys people paid to see slug it out to the bitter end, whoever might come out on top. (For the record, I'm a Rock fan, always will be.)"- Friday, October 28th, 2011
