Title contender proves
A lot has happened in 48 hours in WWE land. Damien Sandow has cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, challenging the new World Heavyweight Champion John Cena.
Cena won the title one day previous on Sunday past at PPV Hell in a Cell, defeating Alberto Del Rio. Cena had returned from a two month injury to grab what WWE recognise as his “fourteenth World title.”
Sandow cashed in the contract for a World title opportunity on the post Hell in a Cell Raw on October 28th. Sandow entered a competent tussle lasting a near thirteen minutes. Cena retained the title.
The plan was always for Sandow, as a Max Waltham rip off, to lose the title cash in. Cena was hailed a hero by WWE, beating “The Intellectual Saviour of the Masses” with “one arm.”
Last year Cena cashed in the Heavyweight title case for the WWE heavyweight crown, and became the first superstar to lose a cash in.
It was earlier revealed WWE are planning a change for Sandow to present him as an honourable man instead of a rouge aggressor.
At the height of Sandow's attempt, fans chanted "This is Awe-some!" Cena may be protected as its stronghold, but WWE remained entirely weak in comparison. Fans still believe John Cena is the man running WWE.
WWE wanted to ‘send a message’ through Sandow with public embarrassment. WWE fans were livid of the ignorance on offer to ruin a potential new upstart, where WWE is desperate for fresh, new talent to arise.
Hey, this is the WWE, kid.
