Rusev needs to lose to John Cena at WrestleMania XXXI

Football News

WrestleMania XXXI is this Sunday and social media, news networks and fans alike are abuzz with theories and ideas for what may be in store.

We are scheduled to see a great show as legends such as Sting, Triple H and the Undertaker are all going to be in action.

Veterans like John Cena, Randy Orton and even Brock Lesnar will all be in action and rising stars like Seth Rollins, Rusev and Roman Reigns will all be enjoying their first WrestleMania (as singles competitors for Reigns and Rollins).

We are set for ladder matches, fatal 4 way tag team matches and a battle royal on a very large scale.

Out of all the matches which are set to take place, there is only one where a certain man winning would result in him losing in the long run.

Rusev and John Cena will go head to head for the United States championship and whilst most are hoping to see Rusev make Cena pass out to the Accolade once again, that may not necessarily be the best idea.

Whilst many think that Cena winning the title will help to bring some much needed prestige back to the belt, that's not why I think that Rusev needs to lose.

Gotta go some time

Rusev is yet to be pinned or made to submit ever since he made it to the main roster the night after WrestleMania XXX.

That has lasted almost a year and whilst it won't last forever, it does deserve to happen for the first time on the grandest stage of them all.

Rusev will lose one day and to do it away from WrestleMania would minimise the actual accomplishment it is.

Nowhere left to go?

Rusev has been the US Champion ever since he beat Sheamus to win the title on a WWE Network exclusive back in November.

In that time he has defended his title against every challenge and pretty much walked through the mid-card in the WWE.

So my question is, what good comes from Rusev remaining as champion?

If Cena is the man to take the title off of him, it frees Rusev up to perhaps begin climbing higher up the roster.

Also, people may not like Cena but if he can't beat Rusev, who can face him and make a win look realistic?

Bigger dreams?

Rusev has had matches with stars like Big E, Jack Swagger, Big Show and Mark Henry and they have not been too exciting.

His clash with Cena at Fastlane was an exciting match to watch as he was facing an opponent who you would believe could actually beat him.

One of Rusev's best matches since moving to the main roster was the clash against Roman Reigns on an episode of Smackdown back in July.

The two have faced off twice more on Smackdown and each time they have met, it has been a match worth watching.

Following his dominant win at Summer Slam last year, many fans wondered what a match between Rusev and Brock Lesnar would look like?

The point however is that the feuds that Rusev may work well in are higher ranked than the United States championship.

Rusev losing the championship would be good for himself given the fact that it would allow him to further climb up the roster and start competing for bigger prizes.
