    Finally someone will not be cashing in on an injured superstar and they know when its going to happen. I respect Cena for that.

    • Simon Veitch

      I guess to an extent, RVD didn't cash in on an injured Cena, but he did give himself the home field advantage and did have Edge screw Cena to get the win, but at least he had warning about the match :)

    • elgato48

      Its not the first time. Rvd cashed in on cena in a match

    • Daniel Lim'ass

      Ever heard of Rob Van Dam?

    • snap

      Rob Van Dam, anyone?

    • Mr.Love

      Rvd, Mr. Kenndey before he got hurt and lost it to edge and Daniel Bryan before mark Henry got hurt. Not the first

    • Bills2020

      Rvd did the same thing to cena at extreme rules years ago

    • ceedot

      It was made so people who get sucked into Cenas character think that he’s a good guy, when he’s really just another Hulk Hogan.

    • wwefanatic

      You it’s creatives idea right?

    • mw

      rob van dam did it before cena

    • Steven

      RVD

    • craig

      RVD was the second winner of money in the bank and he did that. Cena just copying someone else (poke poke)

  • eric

    Omg

    • Josh

      With him doing this he doesn’t look bad for cashing it in on somebody who is injured and he looks more respectable by doing it that way

  • An0n

    so many people called this, it doesnt surprise me

  • John Fan

    WoW if cena loose he will be first to loose in cashing the briefcase :(

  • Simon Veitch

    Here's hoping that Cena becomes the first to not win the WWE Title, If Cena wins on the 1000th Raw it's not a huge deal as he's won it numerous times before. However if he were to be the first MITB Cash In to lose… There's a new fresh first for the 1000th Raw, and builds CM Punk as truly being dominant. After all…. Punk did beat the hell out of Cena last year for the same belt.

  • Mike L

    If Cena wins, I’m not watching WWE anymore. I’ll stick to the indys.

  • Polly

    U dont remember mr money in the bank rvd giving cena notice at ecw?

  • Dave Barton

    This reeks of when Cena challenged Rey on the very night Rey won the WWE Title Tournament last year…its not 100% the same, but the point is that they still want to show just how quickly Super Cena can get the belt back when he challenges for it.

  • graham hodis

    I can see punk winning this. Too predictable cena was going to cash this in on 1000 raw. Whole show should be good next week. Cant wait.

  • Bill Clinton

    Cena easily could have turned heel by taking advantage of the hurt and tired CM Punk. Everyone would have hated him for that because soo many people like Punk. Cena had to wait to keep face. Or somewhat of a face…

  • AnacondaVise

    I'm not surprised either but I'm sure they will put on a PPV worthy match.

  • true wrestling fan

    Once again bland superman will be shoved down our throats..

  • http://thebadgersden.co.uk sdunne87

    Punk shouldn't lose his title on Raw and if anyone was to take it off him it should have been Daniel Bryan.

  • http://wweeverything.con Josh UK

    This isn’t a MITB cash in I don’t like it

  • Randy

    As much as I think cena will be the first to cash in and fail I think their gonna let cena win and give him the new title because he’s the face if the wwe and why no reward him with it

  • Gary

    WWE creative does the same thing with the stupid MITB contract. Always a cash in end of a big match….thank God they finally changed it up. How about someone cashing it in MID-match when someone takes a huge bump to the outside, leaving the title holder alone in the ring etc etc

  • Joe O.

    This surprises me only because I was thinking maybe Cena would save the match for SummerSlam. Also, Richard, how do you think they’ll book this? Will Cena win, continuing the streak of winners, as well as just as simple as it’s Cena or can CM Punk really go over Cena continuing a historic run that would put him in the top 10 longest reigns therefore making Cena the first MitB loser in the process? It’s a very interesting angle that I’m sure will have the IWC going crazy talking bout.

  • Monty

    It’s clobbering time!!!

  • Paul

    Raw 1000th is sounding epic

  • ptekin

    Great another boring main event

  • Logan_Walker

    Really I Thought That The Whole Reason Was To get a "Advantage" Over The Other Person And To "Suprise" them Not Go … "Hey Next Week Me Vs. You Main Event ? Got It ? "… "It Will Be Good TV ? "

  • amaanakter786

    I wish they would stop booking Cena as some sort of noble and moral person and get him of the so called ‘high horse’ everything Big Show said was 100% true that’s how every MITB champion has been crowned why change it now were gonna have to put up with Cena’s moral high ground fed through cole and lawler

  • Tyler Bowles

    Watch The Rock come out towards the end of the match and ruin it for Cena…

  • Kleck

    I wonder if The Rock will get involved to start a WWE fued that ends at WM 29

  • Austin

    I see Super Jackass winning. Then the rock will come out to signal that he’s challenging Cena for the title. If that does happen I wouldn’t be too happy as last time the build to the match was a boring talk-fest. Also the Rock vs Cena was billed as “once in a lifetime” for god’s sakes.

  • junior3rd

    This is what happens people show come out and k.o’s cena and punk retains leaving cena 1st person to cash in and lose it can’t be more obvious…

  • The Breaker

    I don't know who's winning. But this is for sure: this match won't end without shenanigans of some sort.

  • Wwe4L76

    Classic John Cena. ZZzZZzzzzzZZzZ
