should WWE Champion CM Punk choose to face at Hell
in a Cell: John Cena or Ryback? - 9th October 2012
one cage door is John Cena a 10-time WWE Champion,
a veteran of this unforgiving match who will do whatever
it takes to reclaim the coveted title he hasnt
held in more than a year.
the other cage door is Ryback a snarling, ferocious
beast who has devoured every Superstar in his path
and just keeps demanding to be fed more and more.
Hell in a Cell would you choose to step inside?
is the unenviable decision that CM Punk now faces
after Mr. McMahon issued an ultimatum to the WWE Champion
at the close of Monday night's Raw. For Punk, it comes
down to picking between the devil he knows or the
devil he doesn't have the slightest clue about. On
the surface alone, it seems like the choice should
be Cena, especially considering his recovery from
elbow surgery. But if you look closer, you'll realize
that it's not all that simple for The Straight Edge
is here to examine the pros and cons of both options
Punk has to choose from as Hell in a Cell looms just
weeks away. Which opponent he selects might make all
the difference between extending his impressive WWE
Title reign and losing the grip on his championship
gold completely ...
if you believe that Cena will be fully recovered from
elbow surgery in time for Hell in a Cell and
there's a good chance he won't be history indicates
that this match could work in the WWE Champion's favor.
Punk and Cena have gone head-to-head more than 10
times dating back to 2009, but it's Punk who has come
out on the winning end of two of their most important
clashes for the WWE Title.
2011, The Straight Edge Superstar defeated Cena at
Money in the Bank and took him down again one month
later at SummerSlam. Punk even knows how Cena typically
operates inside the confines of Hell in a Cell, having
battled him and Alberto Del Rio in a Triple Threat
Match at Hell in a Cell 2011. With a devious mastermind
like Paul Heyman giving Punk advice from outside the
Cell, conquering Cena might even be easier than those
also apparent what Cena wants: the WWE Championship.
Ryback, on the other hand, might not care about the
title more than he cares about the destruction of
his opponents. Is Punk ready to be trapped inside
a steel structure with an unpredictable wrecking machine?
Yeah, facing Cena definitely feels like the much safer
several weeks, Punk has been clamoring for respect
ad nauseam. He's tried to demand it with his words
and even beat it out of WWE Legends like Bret "Hit
Man" Hart and Mick Foley. But if Punk really
wants to prove himself worthy of everyone's respect,
how about accomplishing something no other Superstar
has been remotely able to do? Yes, we're talking about
being the first to defeat Ryback.
inside Hell in a Cell with the 6-foot-3, nearly 300-pound
juggernaut is a ridiculously scary proposition, but
if Punk could break Ryback's food chain, he'd have
a victory that would silence the doubters and possibly
make his WWE Championship reign be viewed as one of
the very best of all time. There may not ever be a
greater proving ground match for The Straight Edge
Superstar than the one that stands in front of him
put, Ryback could be the Andre the Giant to Punk's
Hulk Hogan. (Credit: WWE)

Legends Of WrestleMania
rarely has an athlete entered the ring who can walk
the walk and talk the talk immediately. John Cena
is one of those athletes. Using an uncanny ability
to perform in the ring and at the microphone in his
own unique way, Cena spent his rookie year in WWE
challenging the best in the business for in-ring supremacy.
former football star at Springfield College, Cena
spent his college career developing two activities
that would prove to define himtraining and rapping.
Now he is doing both in front of millions on a weekly
basis and is one of the most popular young Superstars
claims to already be a legend. While that issue may
be in doubt, there is no denying that he has the talent
to be a legend one day. He has faced some of the very
best to ever compete in WWE and has held his own.
And like most legends, Cena used the biggest possible
stage to have one of the greatest moments of his career
when he defeated the Big Show at WrestleMania XX to
earn his first Championship -- the United States Championship!

WWE Champion John Cena just might be the busiest man

on an episode of FOX's MADtv. That's just one of his
many appearances building toward Oct. 13, the nationwide
opening of the movie he stars in, WWE Films' The Marine.

he toughed out boot camp with the U.S. Marines at
Parris Island, S.C.; he just attended Mr. Olympia
bodybuilding competition in Las Vegas; and he filmed
the MADtv episode, which airs tonight at 11 ET. But
on Oct. 3, Cena will kick it into overdrive at the
world premiere of The Marine at U.S. Marine Corps
Base Camp Pendleton in southern California.

WWE and WWE Films. But even with his busy schedule,
Cena never fails to neglect his No. 1 priority
defending the WWE Championship.

of launching WWE Films as a brand. If WWE Films does
well, WWE does better it all works in conjunction
with everything. If more people who don't know what
WWE is about watch The Marine and decide to tune into
RAW, we get a bigger audience. I said this five years
ago when I started we have the best show on
earth, and I want everyone to know about it, and The
Marine is a way for everyone to know about it,"
