Last night, Survivor Series went off the air with both champions – John Cena and Randy Orton – facing off in the middle of the ring. What this says is that the WWE is planning a feud between the two, which will lead to a title unification match at TLC in a few weeks.
This match between these two superstars is big enough to headline WrestleMania, although it’d make for a good main event at TLC or any other pay-per-view event. Honestly, I don’t see why the WWE would unify the two top championships in the company.
My guess would be that they feel it’s necessary because there’s no longer any separation of brands with Raw and SmackDown. Still, the move just doesn’t seem to be what’s “best for business”. Having two championship titles creates more opportunities for slighted superstars to make a name for themselves, as most of them may never get a chance to hoist up the WWE Championship.
Even though it’s the Heavyweight Championship, it has always carried less weight than the WWE Championship. Placing the title in the hands of a mega-star like Cena automatically gives the secondary title more credibility. That move in itself was a good one, but the WWE is about to self-destruct as usual.
