Title This: WWE Raw Reaction June 24th, 2013

John CenaThe Storylines

John Cena and Mark Henry both cut promos talking about the WWE Championship. John Cena took a more serious approach than what we are used to. He talks about what Mark Henry said and said that the WWE Championship is earned. He walks out. This is the Cena that I want to see. There are only so many jokes that we can take with him. As with Mark Henry, he comes out and says his family and friends are mad because he used them. He talks about fooling the crowd and that it has gotten him nowhere to be loved by them. I love the fact that Henry was serious, is being booked serious, and should really be considered by the writers to win the WWE Championship. I am not sure WWE wants anyone else besides John Cena walking into Summerslam as their champion. You need to preserve these two guys. Do not book them to attack until a week or two before the show. Make the fans buy the show to see the physicality.

Grade: B-

Ryback vs. Jericho was announced for Money in the Bank. Why? What is the point of this? It would make much more sense if Ryback was thrown into a MITB Ladder Match, while Jericho is involved with Ziggler and Del Rio. The match 1-on-1 makes zero sense to me. Another challenge awaits for Jericho. This time, it is making Ryback look good in the ring.
