In a Russian Chain match at Extreme Rules, John Cena managed to successfully retain his United States Heavyweight Championship by defeating Rusev. The match was not as brutal as usual, but that should have been expected because the demographic has changed tremendously over the years. WWE helped the Russian symphatizer gain some heel heat by having him send Lana to the back because the fans were cheering for her.

In a move that might not be the wisest, WWE has opted to do a Wrestlemania rematch between John Cena and Rusev at Extreme Rules. It will be a rematch for the United States Heavyweight Championship. Cena is expected to retain the championship throughout the summer, and since fans are already complaining about the Russian sympathizer being buried, this will surely cause even more of a negative reaction from that group.

Fans who put too much emphasis on winning and losing are under the belief that this is the end of the road for Rusev because he was buried by John Cena at Wrestlemania. As Jim Ross has repeatedly tried to explain, that's not how things work in professional wrestling. WWE is already building the Russian sympathizer back up. He was given a squash match against Goldust on Monday Night Raw, and a winning streak is expected to follow.

While a lot of WWE fans are overjoyed right now about the Brock Lesnar news, they are about to be brought back down to earth for a bit when they realize that the new contract means that John Cena has a better chance of winning the United States Heavyweight Championship from Rusev at Wrestlemania. Since Lesnar will still be part time, the front office wanted a belt on Cena, so that he can use it to headline live events each week.

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Rusev brought out a lawyer to help him get out of defending the United States Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania against John Cena. Well, Vince McMahon was not a fan of the guy. He was so irate backstage that he fed JBL some lines on the commentating booth to bury the acting skills of the performer. It is being said that WWE auditioned people at the arena for the role.

Some confusion has arisen within the internet wrestling community yet again. There are rumors floating around that John Cena has a sex tape out, which has also fueled rumors that Nikki Bella is involved as well. None of that is true. The misconception stems from the fact that the WWE star did a sex scene in a movie. That is the clip that has been passed around by wrestling fans. He is not actually having sex with the other person.

Win or lose, Bray Wyatt is going to come out of the match with Undertaker looking like a much bigger star than before. For the last couple of years, WWE has only had the top level guys working with the legendary performer at Wrestlemania. However, management is having trouble deciding on who would win the match. A loss for Wyatt might seem like a step back to some fans because he also lost last year to John Cena in a high profile match.

A little bit of controversy has arisen within the internet wrestling community, and it is all because of the performers that WWE chose to appear on their Wrestlemania poster this year. John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns were obvious because they are the top full time performers. However, it did not sit well with some fans that part time guys like Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Sting took the remaining parts.

It's something that a lot of fans have long been begging for, but WWE is finally going to slowly start replacing John Cena as the top star in the company. He would step into the Bruno Sammartino role, while Roman Reigns will step into the Bob Backlund role. For those that do not know about that particular part of wrestling history, Backlund was pushed by the company as the hot new thing even though Sammartino was still the biggest draw.
