The last time John Cena held the United States title was way back in 2005 exactly at this time of the year when he lost it to Orlando Jordan, only to win the much bigger prize – the WWE Championship from JBL at WrestleMania 21. And now the legendary commentator Jim Ross has suggested that Cena must win the title back from Rusev in order to create more equity.
The Hall of Famer usually blogs his thoughts, and this time he has come up with this suggestion in his latest one and also had plenty of other things to say. You can read the entire thing over here, but below are some highlights from it:
- The annual Chris Benoit into the WWE HOF topic has reared it’s head again and will likely lingeruntil after the WWE HOF event the night before WM31. I do not endorse Chris, who I hired and had immense respect for until the final days of his life when he murdered his family and then committed suicide. Knowing Chris as I did I feel that he would NOT want to be enshrined into the WWE HOF because of the backlash that it would create and because the story would not be about Chris’s stellar career but instead about the infamous murder/suicide. The entire matter is still a gut wrencher including me representing the WWE at Nancy and Daniel’s funeral services which was a task that was SO hard for me to attend on a personal level. IMO one cannot separate the career of an overachieving athlete from the fact that he murdered his family and then took his own life and no matter the alleged motive.
- Enjoyed the Austin-HHH podcast Monday night after RAW on the @WWENetwork and look forwardto more programs such as this as they are somewhat easy to produce and more cost efficient than many other original programming concepts. For me the long term key to the Network are the PPV’s and Original Programming. The ideas for original programming are seemingly endless. Both Austin and Triple H were straight forward and once they got on a roll it created some interesting content. I could have easily listened to another hour.
- I liked the tweak in the booking as it relates to the the Fast Lane PPV in a few weeks in Memphis as it gets Daniel Bryan back involved, provides multiple ways to go and even potentially positions Reigns as the villain against fan favorite Lesnar. As I said when many fans were knocking themselves out with their uncontrollable knee jerks, the weekly TV between now and WM31 could and should be good programming. I see that happening if the stories are kept simple and not over thought.
- One way to create equity in the US Title is to have John Cena win it, hold it for an extended length of time and bring the luster back to the long time title. OR….hae Rusev stay unbeaten including WM31. How hot would Rusev be if he stayed unpinned and submission free until WM32?
