Looking to bring order back to his show, Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis ordered the team to exit the ring. The executive then made a huge announcement — John Cena will take on The Miz & R-Truth at Survivor Series with a partner of his choosing. Who did the former WWE Champion pick? His WrestleMania XXVIII opponent, The Rock.
If I had to put money down today, I’d say these are the two guys Cena and Rock are taking on at Survivor Series.
Note that I said “two” guys, not four, which is something almost no rumour site ever suggested. Now, who got the speculation wrong?
The main event of Survivor Series, presumably, will be a four-on-four, traditional Survivor Series elimination match featuring The Rock and John Cena teaming with two other partners against four heel opponents.
Franny, at International Objects (not to be confused with the real thing):
Cena, The Rock, CM Punk, Sheamus, and Randy Orton vs R-Truth, The Miz, Kevin Nash, Mark Henry, and Christian.
The obvious members would be Alberto Del Rio, Kevin Nash, Miz, Truth, Laurinaitis and Vince. As a group, they would be going against Triple H, John Cena, CM Punk and, very likely, the Rock. Since Survivor Series is coming up and Rock is already confirmed to be on Cena’s team, this all seems extremely likely, as it really only leaves one free member for each 8-man group, and that could be easily finished by either an undercard pairing, say Morrison and Ziggler, or just using the Smackdown top two of Randy Orton and Mark Henry.
Meanwhile, WWE has already announced that John Cena and The Rock will be together on the same Survivor Series team – in addition to battling each other at the main event of WrestleMania 28. They will be joined by the current WWE COO Triple H.For the other two members, three names are on the rumored list – first, the Undertaker, who was last seen at WrestleMania 27, and the other two flagship of the WWE Attitude era: “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Mick Foley.
Recent internet gossip suggests that The Rock and John Cena pairing will be aided when The Undertaker and Stone Cold make their 2011 returns to the ring. In the latest WWE news and rumors, it appears a Survivor Series dream team is in the making.
While Survivor Series is on the brain, can we address these rumors of what will happen at the event? Whispers have told us for months that The Rock will come back at Survivor Series. When commercials locally in the New York area literally said that, it eliminated the idea that it would be a shocking return. There were even reports of a match that The Rock would have that night, but that seems unlikely.
