    CENA_FLAT-(merged).jpg

    He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack, 4 months earlier than expected :pac:, but this is John "Superman" Cena after all, his ability to recover from serious injuries is astounding, what can he expect upon his return, and what exactly has he planned.

    1. What does John Cena have planned for his return?
    Defying expectations of WWE Universe members and medical professionals alike, John Cena returns to WWE months ahead of schedule following intensive shoulder surgery in January.

    Although the Cenation leader made a brief appearance at WrestleMania 32, helping The Rock repel The Wyatt Family, he now enters a WWE that’s drastically different from the one he left. With Shane and Stephanie McMahon sharing control of Raw, Roman Reigns holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and a host of new Superstars now in the spotlight — including the likes of AJ Styles, The Vaudevillains, Apollo Crews, Baron Corbin and the team of Enzo Amore & Big Cass — it will be interesting to see how WWE’s franchise player makes his mark on the ever-changing landscape.

    2. Will former ‘brothers’ collide?
    Clearly not content with the much-anticipated return of John Cena dominating the social media chatter lately, Seth Rollins came back to WWE more than a week before the Cenation leader, targeting WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and laying claim to the title he “never lost.” Indeed, since The Architect’s reign came to an end due to injury, Rollins will put his money where his mouth is – appropriately, at WWE Money in the Bank, where he’ll face his former Shield “brother,” The Big Dog.

    Given the storied history between Reigns and Rollins, don’t expect the pair to wait patiently for their June 19 championship clash before throwing fists again.

    3. Can The Showoff out-grapple The Lone Wolf?
    Baron Corbin might have gotten the better of Dolph Ziggler in their No Disqualification Match during the WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff — a tainted victory earned by staggering The Showoff with a low blow — but the indomitable former World Heavyweight Champion isn’t about to let The Lone Wolf stay ahead of the pack. On Raw, Ziggler will face Corbin in a technical wrestling match, a bout that will showcase the NCAA standout’s grappling prowess against the imposing brawler.

    Will Ziggler finally take Corbin to the mat once and for all?
    (This is a feud that should've ended at Extreme Rules, let Corbin move on to newer challenges)

    4. What’s going through Charlotte’s mind?
    Last week on Raw, the WWE Universe watched, with mouths agape, as WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte cut all ties to her two-time WWE Hall of Famer dad, Ric Flair, in a startling show of disrespect.

    The Nature Boy has arguably been an instrumental part of Charlotte’s rise to the top of the Women’s division, but she evidently feels differently, at least these days. She’s recently gained a new ally in the imposing Dana Brooke, but what caused this change of heart for the second-generation Superstar? Has she always harbored resentment toward her father? Hopefully, we’ll learn more about the WWE Women’s Champion’s new attitude on Raw.

    5. Is Dudleyville ‘S.A.W.F.T.’?
    Enzo Amore wasted no time when he returned from injury last Monday night, trash-talking The Dudley Boyz before Big Cass defeated Bubba Ray one-on-one. Days later on SmackDown, the outspoken duo challenged the Dudleys to a tag team bout, which will ultimately go down on Raw.

    This will mark Enzo’s first match since he sustained a concussion at WWE Payback, but if the last few days are any indication, the self-professed “Smacktalker Skywalker” has lost none of his fearlessness during his recovery. Big Cass, meanwhile, has more than held his own against the Dudley brothers while Enzo has been on the mend. The New Era might be about to teach these Attitude Era veterans what “attitude” is all about. How you doin’, Dudleys?!

    6. Who will emerge as the final Money in the Bank Ladder Match participant?


    On SmackDown, Alberto Del Rio joined Dean Ambrose, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho in this year’s anticipated Money in the Bank Ladder Match. With a guaranteed WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at the time and place of their choosing on the line, every Superstar on the roster is clamoring to compete in the final Money in the Bank Qualifying Match. Who will compete for a chance at destiny?


    SKY SPORTS 5 @ 1 AM..

    Will also include the Whatculture W.T.F Moments on Tuesday afternoon, once the video appears on Whatculture wrestling's YouTube channel.

    Well, Rusev's reign was fun while it lasted....


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,358 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Bray Wyatt to return and attack Cena is my guess


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    The last entrant of the MITB should be Brock imo.

    Of course it'll end up being one of three.

    John Cena (#CenaWinsLOL)
    Randy Orton (aka Blandy Boreton)
    Big Show (wow look how big he is, isn't he big, did I mention he's big?)

    Please don't say that, Rusev deserves a long run with the U.S Title.

    I hope not. He basically turned face the last time he was there, and he got a stellar reaction.

    I'd actually love to see Rusev vs Bray for the US title. Think the crowd would go nuts if Bray returned and challenged him.

    Big Show (wow look how big he is, isn't he big, did I mention he's big?)

    How will he ever climb the ladder. Oh my God look at the size of that ladder. Have you ever seen anything like this?

    Not gonna lie, I read that line in the voice of Adam Blampied.

    Brocks attraction is that he stands out from everyone else. When he got thrown in the Rumble they made him look like just another guy on the roster & damaged his name, after a flat feud with Ambrose they need to build someone up to take him on. Not against a load of midcarders who haven't any momentum like Ambrose at Mania.

    Yes but having the champion looking over his shoulder every show wondering if Lesnar was going to cash in would be fantastic. Works better with a dastardly heel champion though.

    It would have been better seeing a heel Reigns smugly run over half the roster for 6 months or so only for Lesnar to cash in around summerslam time but alas that wasn't to be.

    A Big Show appearance in the MITB would surely be worthy of a what just happened video

    Some face cash ins have been good though

    CM Punk's first one on Edge

    Ziggler was a heel but got a proper reaction

    The last few MITB winners have been that heel though, wouldn't mind a switch up

    I agree with all of the above.

    I meant it would work better having Lesnar cash in on a dastardly heel.

    Lesnar cashing in on a face champion would lose a little bit of something, alot of the male adult audience would mark out for it.

    I always loved the reaction of Seth Rollins when he was told his next opponent would be Lesnar. His facial expressions were brilliant.

    Doesn't have to be a big heel champion though

    If Dean Ambrose won and cashed in on Roman Reigns the fans would go mad and it wouldn't lose a thing

    Actually whoever wins it really, if he cashes on Reigns it'll be a brilliant moment

    But look at Brock Lesnar. Why would he need to be looking for an opportunity to cash in. He's massive & the most intimidating guy on the roster.
    It doesn't suit his character, he isn't a chicken shıt heel like others were booked from the mitb win to be. Suits Owens to win it but he needs bigger wins than Zayn & Styles to carry the main title so a fast cash in would be naive.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,303 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    If there's any justice in the world, Kevin Owens will be winning.

    If you want a heel who will get the fans cheering Reigns, I can't think of anyone with as good a chance as Owens.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,474 ✭✭✭✭CSF


    I wouldn't expect the last person in to be someone marquee, I think Owens will be winning it as it is so he'll be the main attraction most likely. Bray Wyatt probably as good as it will get but sure what do I know


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,303 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    WWE are sending out cryptic tweets all week about a hatch. The latest one says the hatch has opened, and a "see you tonight" style message, so someone is debuting/returning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,289 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    I read the OP and very nice it was I have to say. But how does that keep roman reigns strong though ?

    Overall they have done a decent job of freshening up the show but the Womens division is a big disappointment.

    The booking was awful, while the WWE World Heavyweight Title was all about interference of Uso's and Good brothers they missed a great chance for the Womens title to be about the wrestling. But the silly booking of stupid Montreal finish and the needless Charlotte/Dana alliance has made it painful to watch.

    Owens is probably more popular than any of their faces. Not that it's hard his competition is Reigns, bland super talented workers & the adult Bart Simpson that is Dean Ambrose

    Except who ever cashes in on Reigns will ultimately lose.

    It's one way to get the title off Reigns while keeping him strong

    And sure who wouldn't love another Reigns title chase?
