In three weeks’ time, if Wade Barrett emerges from his Survivor Series match against Randy Orton as WWE Champion, Cena – acting as special guest referee – will finally be free from The Nexus.
If the Englishman fails, however, the reluctant Nexus member will be terminated from his WWE contract. So, what will Cena choose to do when the pay-per-view clash comes around?
This week on RAW, WWE champion Randy Orton kicked things off by confronting Cena, who told him that, while titles come and go, his very way of life hangs in the balance and that he’s not entirely sure what he may do at Survivor Series.
Upon hearing Cena’s uncertainty, Barrett interrupted the two. Before the situation could explode, RAW’s anonymous GM emailed, to arrange Monday Night’s main event: A tag team match pitting Barrett and a partner of his choosing against Orton and a partner of his choosing with Cena acting as the special guest referee.
When the main event got under way, Cena promised not to take sides while he officiated a match pitting WWE Champion Randy Orton and R-Truth against Wade Barrett and David Otunga.
Despite finding himself firmly under Barrett’s thumb, Cena refused to favour The Nexus leader once the bout commenced. Although, at one point, he appeared to lean toward his Nexus cohorts, Cena restrained himself and oversaw the bout as objectively as possible.
The outcome, however, would leave his English enemy bitter and angry as R-Truth managed to topple Otunga and pin his shoulders for the win. The loss triggered a tirade of abuse from the Englishman directed squarely at Cena.
Revenge
After a shocking defeat to Santino Marella last week, Sheamus came to the ring and vowed to get his revenge on the fan favourite.
The Celtic Warrior challenged the Italian again, but Santino instead subbed in his tag partner, Vladimir Kozlov. The Moscow Mauler put up a powerful defence, but Sheamus hit the axe handle and Brogue kick for the win.
After his victory, the Irishman chased Santino up the entrance ramp. As he prepared to execute the Razor’s edge on the stage, John Morrison stepped in to save the day, which led to a typical Santino celebration.
Elsewhere, United States Champion Daniel Bryan continued his fine run of form with a victory over Ted DiBiase.
Since Goldust stole his Million Dollar Title, DiBiase has been unable to focus on anything else. And as a result, his performances in the ring have not been up to par. This week, The U.S Champion notched his fourth victory in nine days when he forced DiBiase to tap out to the LeBell lock.
