Controversy is already surrounding WWE Money in the Bank 2014 after an Amazon DVD cover may have spoiled the SummerSlam main event. John Cena has now become the odds on favorite to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Here are five reasons why the title needs to go back to The Champ:

5. It Will Split the Audience

Love or hate Cena winning the belt at MITB, it will get people talking. When it comes down to it, that's what pro wrestling is all about.

Again, you can hate Cena, but he's still the biggest draw in WWE. Adding him to the SummerSlam main event, because it's unlikely he'd drop the belt after one month, is best for business. Specifically, it will be best for WWE Network subscriptions.

This probably won't factor into Vince's decision to put the strap on Cena, but it will make putting the belt on him easier on Sunday night. If there's any crowd that will cheer Cena winning, it's Boston. If nothing else it will make for entertaining television.

2. It Sets Up a Necessary Rematch With Brock Lesnar

If you don't think Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena II needs to happen -- you're wrong. There's no reason to not have at least three matches between the two mega stars. $$$

Rather than take a chance by putting the strap on up-and-coming stars like Reigns, Wyatt and Cesaro, WWE can play it safe and put it on Cena. They know what they're going to get, which is a true main event star holding the company's top prize.

    As much as John cena winning may be safe i dont think it will make as many people get subscriptions for the wwe network as most people might think and i feel this way because i didnt think i needed wwe network at first because i already knew how the wwe works with familiar superstars always main eventing, its annoying but i finally decided to get wwe network when i saw the wwe actually pushing new talent and i wanted to see them main event. Hell i stopped watching wwe for about 2 years because i was getting tired of wwe being to predictable with their main events. I truly believe that something new will get more subscriptions than wwe playing it safe like they always do and literally hand the title over to cena. Right now im actually mad because if cena wins the mitb like i know he will i feel like this subscription is a waste because i couldve predicted this without having to pay 10 dollars a month.
