Destruction. Dominance. Devastation. No matter what word you use, they all sum up the match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar at Summerslam. What was billed the biggest fight of the summer turned into the biggest lopsided beatdown of any WWE Champion ever. There is no disputing that whether one is a Cena fan or chanting Cena sucks every week. Unfortunately, I think it would be unwise to dispute the likelihood that the same thing will happen again. We have no reason to think otherwise.
When John Cena defeated Brock Lesnar back at Extreme Rules 2012, there were circumstances back then that no longer apply which helped Cena defeat Lesnar. For one, Lesnar was not lying when he said he was ill in the time leading up to that match.; He was recovering after suffering from a condition called diverticulitis, a digestive disease that cost Lesnar part of his colon and almost his athletic career. Anyone fighting under those conditions would be less than a hundred percent to say the least. Second, the match they fought at Extreme Rules was--appropriately enough--an “extreme rules” match where anything goes. Lesnar dominated Cena much like at Summerslam until Cena used a chain he brought with him to the ring to knock Lesnar out. That is the only reason John Cena won at Extreme Rules 2012.
The bad news for John Cena is, unless something changes, there are no stipulations that would prevent such an action without a disqualification. That means no win and no title for John Cena. After seeing the match at Summerslam, a disqualification may be the only thing that will save Cena from more of the same by Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions. He will have to use a weapon or something else to his advantage or I fear this month’s pay-per-view main event will be just like last month’s. According to Cena, that is exactly what he is looking for though. If you take him seriously on Monday night, it sounds like the WWE Championship is secondary to John Cena getting revenge on Brock Lesnar and giving him a taste of his own medicine. If that is enough for him and he truly doesn’t care about winning the title, perhaps he will get his wish. If he wants more fromt hat, he will be in for a long night.
