It’s official, the WWE championship match has been set for WrestleMania XXVIII and it could very well be one of the most spectacular works of art the pro wrestling world has seen in a long time.
Considering the participants, no one should expect anything less than the best. Champion, CM Punk taking on legend, Chris Jericho is a sight for sore eyes and a dream come true to many. Allowing them full control and time to create a masterpiece is a must and should that happen, it might even steal the show.
One thing is worth noting, this year’s Mania edition features many legends appearing on the card. The Undertaker, Triple H, Chris Jericho and The Rock are part of the mix that should allow for this show to surpass all others.
What about the best of the current roster? The top of the food chain? CM Punk and John Cena are definitely filling that role and despite not being of “legendary” status just yet, these two have proven time and again why they are the best in the business.
This past summer, the captain of WWE and his outspoken counterpart have delivered a series of matches that made the Attitude Era jealous. The long chase over the championship and its undisputed holder was the best work of the year and would need to be revisited again down the road.
It is inevitable to be honest. John Cena and CM Punk are the top Superstars in the company right now but only one can hold the title. The war will begin anew and in the end, there shall truly be only one face of the company.
Whether it be the current champion or the leader of Cenation is still a mystery. Look for both to have the biggest match of their careers just six weeks from now, their focus needs to be there.
Was there ever any doubt in the WWE Universe’s mind that they would meet again someday?
All the good work they did a few months ago paid off. The Money In The Bank pay-per-view was a total success and CM Punk’s contract status was the talk of the town. John Cena was taken to his limits and lost a match in a city that despised him and not knowing who the undisputed champion was kept the fans glued to the TV sets for weeks.
Next time, things could be very different. There is no telling what kind of attitude John Cena will have following his match against The Rock. It already starts to look like he’s on the warpath and should he lose and Dwayne takes off, he’ll have to unload that fury somewhere else.
Claiming his 13th World championship by destroying Punk, should he retain, would be the best route envisaged. The idea of having another short reign doesn’t appeal to many but isn’t that a price to pay for having some of the best matches ever?
This is the most exciting time at WWE and it doesn’t have to stop on April 2nd. Should they want to repeat the successes of the past, then all they would have to do is to look no further than the amazing talent they have in stock right now.
John Cena, CM Punk…doesn’t really get any better than that. Reigniting their great feud would be money in the bank, pun intended. 2011 was clash of the titans, 2012 will be wrath of the titans.
WWE says it best: bigger, better, badder.
