...look, I realise this is soooo last month, but it occured to me recently... is it just me or was Cena's MITB win absolutely wasted or what? Not just in terms of the briefcase might've been better used by a younger guy, but really the utter waste of an entire potentially gripping storyline. Cena was the first failed cash-in, but that VERY important fact was skipped over like it hardly even occurred. It achieved very little; anyone who wants to argue it was instrumental to the CM Punk heel turn is kidding themselves.
At the end of the day, the title of first MITB cash-in loser, after having had so many successful winners, had the potential to lay the foundations for a really interesting storyline for a talented guy in need of a direction (and there are, and have been for some time, plenty who need this). It seems to me like the WWE just spunked that storyline away... and I don't see how they can just do it the next time there's a failed cash-in, it'll no longer have the same impact. What are other people's thoughts?
