In an interesting way for the WWE to make all of their weekly television shows must-see television, Triple H came out on WWE Main Event on Tuesday night and made a huge announcement for the “Night of Champions” pay-per-view. While Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar cut a great promo on “WWE Monday Night Raw,” no challenger for “Night of Champions” was revealed. According to Wrestle View, that challenger will be John Cena.
Announcing the main event match for “Night of Champions” on a WWE Network exclusive show is another way for the WWE to let fans know that the WWE Network is a must have for all WWE fans. The reason for the John Cena rematch is because he has the automatic rematch clause built into his contract. It will be interesting to see how the WWE books this match, considering the domination that Lesnar handled Cena with at “Summerslam.”
In that WWE “Summerslam” match, Brock Lesnar didn’t just beat John Cena, he destroyed John Cena. Lesnar hit his F5 within 30 seconds of the match starting and then beat Cena relentlessly for the rest of the match. Lesnar would take occasional breaks to taunt Cena by asking the referee to see if Cena gave up. He hit 18 German Suplexes during the match. He finally hit another F5 at the end and pinned Cena easily. It was the most dominating world title win in many years.
This is an important moment for the WWE. Brock Lesnar ended The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak, something that hadn’t been done in the over two decades that Undertaker has been competing in the WWE. He then beat John Cena, the best wrestler in the WWE today, easily without any offense from the champion. This means that, whoever beats Brock Lesnar will be an immediate star. If John Cena wins, it will ruin the chance for a young wrestler to step up. This is a huge decision the WWE has on their hands.
