John Cena took the WWE Heavyweight Championship title at Money in the Bank over the weekend, much to the dismay of WWE decision-maker and long time nemesis Triple H.
And now it looks like he plans to ensure Cena doesn't spent too much time at the top of the WWE ladder. Monday night's RAW episode seemed to suggest that Seth Rollins was lying in wait as Triple H's ominous 'plan B' option should Cena maintain his title through the upcoming Battleground pay-per-view.
However recent reports suggest that this could be an attempt to mislead the WWE faithful, with Brock Lesnar actually the star being recruited by HHH to overcome the veteran wrestler.
It was no surprise then that Triple H came out with a strong stance on the most recent Monday night RAW.
With WWE having revealed that Cena would face the first challenger looking to take away his new title at the upcoming Battleground pay-per-view, Triple H was keen to reiterate that if Cena came through that match then another challenger would be quick to surface.
Triple H's announcement was quickly followed by the appearance of Seth Rollins in a move that seemed to make clear that the renegade former Shield member was the preferred choice.
F4WOnline however reports that the word backstage at the WWE is that three-time WWE champion Lesnar is the man being lined up.
Cena as Champion
John Cena of course has made the most of the WWE's decision to strip Daniel Bryan of the title once it became clear the diminutive wrestler would be out for a significant time through surgery.
And with Battleground just three weeks away it could still be a short stint at the top for Cena. However, WrestleZone is noting that should the wrestler keep hold of the belt then a Cena - Lesnar match is being mooted for Summerslam in August.
Brook Lesnar would certainly be an interesting proposition for Cena to try and get past. The latter is of course the man who put pay to The Undertakers historic unbeaten run at WrestleMania this April and was himself set to be lined up for a chance at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship earlier this year.
