You mentioned not too long ago that it might be better at this point to have Brock Lesnar drop the World title to Cena and have Cena drop it to Reigns, but I was wondering: what does the WWE do with Rusev then? Common logic was that Cena beats Rusev at Wrestlemania, so does WWE push the win back a month to one of their lame PPV's, or give the win to someone who could use the win to give themselves a kickstart/elevation/whatever? The whole "This is Your Life, Ryback" thing WWE did on Raw tonight kind of implies Ryback would be a good (or at least likely) choice, and if Daniel Bryan comes back as a surprise Royal Rumble entrant he could probably use the win to get heat back onto him since the World Title would be occupied for a while.
I think, if my Google Translate is accurate on WWE bullshit politics to English, that the Ryback push is a fuck you to CM Punk rather than any serious attempt to make him, since Punk buried Ryback in the podcast. But that's just a theory...A GAME THEORY.
Pretty sure we're still getting Cena/Rusev. If the Bryan thing works out, they can do Brock/Bryan and Rollins/Reigns. The Cena deal is just too easy and obvious not to go with.
