It will be “the biggest rematch in WWE history,” according to thee WWE in their promos, hyping the card or even video packages. WWE wants you to know that this is a big deal, but if it is a big deal, then why does it feel like an afterthought?

Last month at “Tables, Ladders and Chairs” pay-per-view, we saw the WWE champion Randy Orton taking on the World Heavyweight champion John Cena in the most important match in WWE history. Of course, Orton won and we thought, okay where is this going?

Stephanie McMahon announces that we are going to get a rematch to see who the face of the WWE is. Why did I just buy TLC then? I wanted to see the real champion, and we got that in Orton.

With that being said, why should I be interested in this rematch? Well, because it’s to see who is the face of the WWE. But didn’t we just found that out at TLC? My point is, there is no logic in this match.

This match has already given away the finish — Orton will win this match. After this, there is no reason to have a third match. If they wanted to give us a best of or 2-3 matches, fine. But they never established that and this match is just an afterthought. No, it’s not because it’s the Royal Rumble PPV and more people are interested in that. The build has been decent, but nothing out of this world.

On Raw this past week, Cena who was three hours late, wanted to get his revenge on Orton, who put his father in the hospital. Cena chased him, but Orton escaped in a car outside of the arena.

I expect this to be a good match and maybe even the main event. However, I still believe Orton retains at the Royal Rumble.

Who do you think will win? Let me know in the comment area below.
