    ZOMG It must have been the return of John Cena boosting ratings already!

        It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize just how important John Cena is to the W.W.E. Whether you love or loathe the guy, you have to give the “Chain Gang Commander” all the mad props in the world for everything he has accomplished so far in the 11 years he has been competing in the W.W.E., both as a main event headliner and as the “face” of the promotion. And while I question whether it’s wise for Cena to come back way too soon after being on the sidelines for the past three months with an elbow injury, there’s no denying the passion, enthusiasm, drive, courage, and determination Cena has long been noted for, and a return to the W.W.E. to challenge Alberto Del Rio for the World title at the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view just might be the shot in the arm the W.W.E. needs to help bring back a level of excitement “Raw”, “SmackDown”, and “Main Event” have been lacking in the last few months. We’ll see how things will shake up in the W.W.E. Universe over the next few weeks and months.
