Monday on Raw saw Bray Wyatt challenge John Cena to a Last Man Standing match at Payback and last night on Smackdown the former world champion accepted and made it official.
The saga between these two has been brewing since Bray cost John Cena the world title at February's Elimination Chamber, since then both men have secured a win over the other, with Cena winning the legacy defying match at Wrestlemania and Bray securing the win at Extreme Rules a few weeks ago after Little Johnny made his presence known.
Many thought that this whole feud would finally see Cena turned into a heel, but shockingly Cena has been receiving big ovations at recent shows whilst Bray's cult following continues to sway their arms and sing "he's got the whole world in his hands."
It's hard to predict the outcome of this match as it seems this won't be the end of the feud but at the same time a last man standing match between the two could be a pretty tedious affair. Neither man are in their physical prime and now they have to beat the other one until they can't answer a ten count, there is also a no dq tag hanging over this match which means The Usos, Luke Harper and Erik Rowan could well involve themselves.
It was a surprise when this match was announced as The Uso's have been teaming up with Cena against The Wyatt's lately and it looked as though we could have two six man tag matches on June 1st. But now it seems instead that The Usos could be putting their tag team titles on the line against Harper and Rowan in what is expected to be a brutal but brilliant match between the four of them.
With the World Title's future still yet to be decided and the very probable assumption that there may not be a world title match in two weeks, it seems WWE is set for the first pay per view in a long time with no title on the line in the main event.
Evolution v The Shield could be enough to cover Payback's main event but with Money in the Bank coming up before Daniel Bryan is due to return at Summerslam, it will be interesting to see what WWE decide to do with the world title because whether you are part of the Yes Movement or dislike Daniel Bryan you have to see that the Word Title not being defended at two back to back pay-per-views is something that should never happen, and maybe now WWE will realise how much of a bad idea it was unifying the titles because if there was two titles now, there wouldn't be a problem.
