Chris Jericho set to Defend World Heavyweight Championship against John Cena at Survivor Series
November 8, 2008 by AlexV
On November 23rd, John Cena makes his return from injury to do battle with Chris Jericho in an attempt to regain what he had lost in his first of two injuries in just under a year… the top spot on Monday Night Raw with the World Heavyweight Championship. What makes this match so intriguing is that it will take place in the hometown of John Cena in Boston Massachusetts.
It may seem a little surprising that Cena’s first scheduled match after his injury is for the title already, but that’s what Cena has earned being one of the WWE’s practical poster-boys. Even during his injury he was regularly attending promotional charity events for the WWE, as well as appearing as a guest on television shows for Nickelodeon.
As for the match itself, I can only see one possible outcome… John Cena regains the title. I do not see anytime available for the WWE to build up a Cena-Jericho feud, nor do I see Cena losing his first match back from the injury, and especially in his hometown.
And if you’re thinking about the possibility of a bitter Batista interfering and causing a disqualification, there would be no advantage for him in doing this as his personality fears nobody. His character simply does not care who is holding the title at a certain time because he always feels he should win. Plus, the WWE has yet to set up any actual Survivor matches for Survivor Series, and I’m pretty sure that’s where we’ll be seeing our beloved “Animal” for the Pay-Per View.
So for now, I’d say “the time is here” and “the time is now” for John Cena to be back on top on Monday Night Raw.
