WWE: John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis Match Was a Joke at Exciting Over the Limit

Over the Limit was a great event for the WWE with all the excitement that one would come to expect from a pay-per-view. That is, until the main event of the evening.

There are few words that can explain the John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis match other than "disappointing."

With so many fans expecting the Big Show to come out and do exactly what he did, it seemed like the WWE got it wrong in this one. 

Besides the "twist" with the Big Show, the match as a whole was less than entertaining. 

Sure, there were a few moments that made us laugh and a few that involved actually wrestling, but for the most part, it was an awful way to end Over the Limit.

The match should not have been the main event to begin with. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan or the Fatal 4-Way could have easily bumped the Cena vs. Laurinaitis match to the second to last match of the night. 

Simply put, there were more deserving superstars who should have had their chance to shine at the event rather than the circus that took place.

The Big Show angle was far too obvious. The way it took place could have been scripted the minute that Laurinaitis fired Big Show last week. The WWE had an opportunity to throw a curveball, but instead served up a fastball down the middle.

It was a bad way to end an otherwise exciting, entertaining event.

The way this one ended was more of a joke than anything else. The Cena, Laurinaitis gig is up and it was apparent at Over the Limit.

The only thing the match achieved was leaving a bitter taste in everyones' mouths and fans with a bit less cash after throwing it away on a main event not worthy of it.
