WWE’s Potential LA Knight Trap, AEW’s Stacked Title Scene, More Quick Takes | News, Scores, Highlights, Stats, and Rumors
John Cena vs. Solo Sikoa is official for Saturday’s Crown Jewel, and based on the story they’ve told with the two in recent weeks, the veteran is the favorite to reign supreme.
If so, he gains absolutely nothing from handing Sikoa an unnecessary loss at this stage of the younger competitor’s rise to superstardom.
To say Sikoa would be “buried” by Cena would be a significant stretch considering Sikoa feels like a big deal simply stepping into the squared circle with Cena. However, he’ll be the one sticking around after Crown Jewel, whereas it’s unknown when The Cenation Leader will be back when his current run ends.
Cena has consistently complained about not having won a singles match in over 2,000 days, and with that not being acknowledged until now, fans are fairly certain the 16-time world champion is going over.
Meanwhile, in the span of six months, Sikoa has been beaten three times by pinfall in singles match, including to LA Knight two weeks ago. It’s premature for the 30-year-old to suffer another setback when Cena can hold off on picking up that elusive victory until later down the line.
Of course, Cena will win eventually, but it shouldn’t come at Sikoa’s expense.
