Should Eve be mad at John Cena?

Should Eve be mad at John Cena?

Pity the poor soul Zack Ryder, who suffered yet another ignominy during Raw SuperShow this past Monday when he was chokeslammed through the stage by Kane during a Falls Count Anywhere Match. In the past month alone, Long Island Iced-Z has been pummeled by Kane through a loading pallet and lost his United States Championship to Jack Swagger under questionable pretenses. Ryder was not medically cleared to compete, but an oversight by Executive VP of Talent Relations and Interim Raw GM John Laurinaitis allowed the match to proceed. This past Monday, still reeling from injuries sustained at the hands of The All-American American, Ryder faced his tormentor head-on and was driven through the stage for his troubles, suffering a herniated disc at the hands of The Devil's Favorite Demon.

So where does the buck stop now? In a seemingly endless cycle of brutality leveled against the beloved, self-proclaimed Internet Champion, who's to blame for the predicament?

If your answer is "John Cena," you're not alone. Eve, Ryder's friend, laid the fault for Ryder's suffering at the feet of the Cenation leader, berating Ryder’s broski before getting into the ambulance with the motionless former U.S. Champion. (WATCH)

The truth is, Eve has a point. Kane has made his intentions clear: to make Cena "embrace the hate" at all costs. But rather than confront Cena himself, The Big Red Monster has instead targeted Ryder, and relentlessly so. The unspoken implication seems to be that the beatings will continue until Cena bends to The Devil's Favorite Demon's will. Thus far, Cena has taken the high road and resisted, and the tactic has, all things considered, left Ryder more or less to fight his own battles against Kane and Swagger. One could argue that Cena is holding out on aid for a friend who is injured and outmatched, all in the name of his personal credo. It was Ryder, not Cena, who had to walk down to the ring and …

Wait a second.

Why not blame Ryder?

Ryder's a grown man. There's nobody stopping him from protecting his body and his health and refusing to compete against Jack Swagger. Nobody was making Ryder put his hard-won United States Championship on the line against an opponent with the built-in advantage of unbroken ribs. Furthermore, nobody forced Ryder's hand in his match against Kane either.

Although, there was that stipulation that Mr. Laurinaitis added to the Ryder-Kane match: the one where, if Cena interfered, Ryder would never get a United States Title opportunity again. Perhaps this is all on Laurinaitis, who also seemed to willingly overlook the doctor’s report that would have stopped the title match and, presumably, kept the United States Championship around Ryder's waist.

It's not unfair to say there are plenty of players who are just as, if not more, at fault than Ryder in what has transpired thus far. And yet, Eve has blamed Cena, the one man who unquestionably has tried to protect Ryder this entire time. The question this whole time seems to have been whether or not Cena will "Rise Above Hate," but perhaps it’s fair to ask if Eve should have done the same?

Then again, Cena did look like he was about to lose his cool in the backstage area as Ryder was carted out. Maybe Eve has the right idea after all, and the time for the high road is finally over.

After RAW went off Air 1/23/2012

After last night’s WWE RAW Supershow in Phoenix, John Laurinaitis made a WWE Title match between CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler. Punk got the pinfall victory after hitting Ziggler with the Go To Sleep.

While the WWE Champion was celebrating, Kane came out to confront CM Punk, but John Cena made the save. Kane and Cena fought until Kane chokeslammed him. Kane left but came back to receive an Attitude Adjustment to end the show.

in Phoenix, AZ 1/23/2012

One week after unloading a verbal tirade on Mr. Laurinaitis, The Voice of the Voiceless opened WWE Raw SuperShow by calling out the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, and demanding he admit that he will screw Punk at Royal Rumble. To the surprise of the WWE Universe, John Cena made his way to the ring as Mr. Laurinaitis did not. Cena took the opportunity to demand a match with Kane on Raw and to grant Zack Ryder a U.S. Title rematch.
The Interim Raw General Manager finally appeared and announced that Zack Ryder would face Kane in a Falls Count Anywhere Match tonight. He also declared that if Cena interfered, Long Island Iced-Z would never have another U.S. Title opportunity. Mr. Laurinaitis then announced that CM Punk and John Cena would battle Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler next!

Dolph Ziggler & U.S. Champion Jack Swagger def. WWE Champion CM Punk & John Cena
In an impromptu tag team match, John Cena and CM Punk immediately showed great teamwork in an effort to take out their frustrations with Mr. Laurinaitis. With momentum not in their favor, Ziggler and Swagger tried to regroup and re-strategize.

With a combination of pure athleticism and show-boating, The All-American American and No. 1 contender to the WWE Title built a fair amount of momentum against Cena. But the fighting spirit deep within the Cenation leader overpowered Swagger with an Attitude Adjustment paving the way for the WWE Champion to get inside the squared circle. However, as The Voice of the Voiceless ascended the ropes to elbow drop Ziggler, Mr. Laurinaitis distracted Punk, allowing The Show-Off to capture the victory.
In response, CM Punk challenged the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations to a match tonight and Mr. Laurinaitis accepted!

In addition to John Cena, WWE and its talent have received the “Chris Greicius Award” award four additional times.
“WWE wishes have been popular since early in the Foundation’s history and we are proud to count the WWE and its Superstars as longtime supporters,” said David Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. “John Cena’s commitment to our mission and his connection with our wish kids make him one of our best wish ambassadors. We are grateful for everything John and WWE have done, and we look forward to them granting many more wishes in the future.”

John Cena continues to be one of the most frequently requested celebrity wishes. Tonight, John Cena is scheduled to grant two wishes at WWE Monday Night Raw at US Airways Center in Phoenix.
