Cena lost to Ambrose on SmackDown.

John Cena and Roman Reigns’ losses to help create future WWE stars

Published 2 Comments

The injury sustained by Vince McMahon seems to have changed various plans at the last minute.

With Triple H and Stephanie McMahon calling the final shots on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live, certain booking decisions have made up as they seemed a little out of the ordinary.


The decisions in question include Kevin Owens defeating Roman Reigns last week to keep him out of the Universal Championship match at Clash of Champions.

It also includes how Reigns escaped from the cage earlier this week to defeat Owens, and over on SmackDown, we had John Cena lose clean for the first time in seven years on either show when Dean Ambrose pinned him.

There’s a reason behind all of this questionable booking, and The Inquisitr is reporting that this is being done to help create and build new stars.

On Raw, Owens’ pin-fall victory over Reigns helped him a lot.

It allowed him to look strong as a champion by defeating someone who has been in the World Championship picture for around two years and has shared the ring with some massive stars like Triple H and Brock Lesnar.

Owens’ cage match loss to Reigns was also booked for the same reason. They had Reigns escape rather than pin the champion, as it helped make both men look strong heading into the pay-per-view.


The WWE can’t afford to have Owens seem like a weak champion, by having somebody else continue to go over as it would destroy the prestige of the title, as well as harm Owens chances of being the best heel in the company.

Over on SmackDown, a clean win over Cena came as a shock to most when Ambrose rolled him up for the victory.

This was also done for a reason. Having somebody like Ambrose pick up a win from nowhere not only makes it unpredictable, but it shows that there’s a shift in dominance as now as someone as unstoppable as Cena can lose to the future of the company.

To many, it may not seem like a good decision on either show, but it’s perhaps the best way of building the stars of the future, and not relying on the same superstars year after year.
