CM Punk: Why Punk Will Face Ryback and John Cena at Hell in a Cell

Hector DiazAnalyst IOctober 9, 2012


CM Punk must pick his poison for Hell in a Cell. 

After running away from the onslaught of John Cena, Ryback and a determined Vince McMahon, CM Punk now has the opportunity to select his opponent at Hell in a Cell. Having the option to select the two superstars may in fact lead to both facing CM Punk at the pay per view, and by doing so, it can ease many of WWE’s current concerns. 

The WWE Championship picture has strayed away from the original feud between John Cena and CM Punk. 

It would have been difficult to progress the story line by six week’s worth of back and forth confrontations on the mic since John Cena is unable to wrestle after recovering from elbow surgery. In the place of John Cena have been various WWE legends and hall of famers question CM Punk’s championship reign. 

But the focus should eventually go back to John Cena’s feud with Punk, and what better way to do this than having them wrestle at Hell in a Cell. 

Inserting Cena in the match puts the focus back on the former WWE Champion, but does not necessarily put him at greater risk of aggravating the elbow he recently had surgery on. 

Cena can participate in the match but can do less than he regularly would if he was healthy with Ryback in the picture. 

Ryback, on the other hand, can prove that he is a legitimate WWE Championship contender by being a part of the match. 

Having Vince McMahon’s latest project perform most of the wrestling moves on CM Punk, and vice versa, will ultimately complete Ryback’s astronomical push to the top and allow Cena some rest throughout the match.

Not only that, but the WWE title picture will gain more depth with the introduction of a new contender. This can possibly result in Ryback being the next face of WWE once John Cena eventually leaves.
