Raw 1000 to Feature Cena vs. Punk for WWE Title

So much for surprises, as John Cena has announced his intention to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, just one night after the Pay-Per-View win.  Basically, Cena is going to do the "respectable" thing and he gave CM Punk a week to prepare for the championship bout.  Unfortunately, doesn't this all seem too obvious for the fans?

It's the biggest episode of Raw by far, commemorating 1,000 shows, and featuring big appearances by D-Generation X, Brock Lesnar, and The Rock.  However, WWE wants to solidify the superstar status of John Cena by giving him a historic championship win.  This will likely set up a big rematch for SummerSlam 2012 of Punk vs. Cena, which was a feud a while before.

Quite possibly this is the new Orton vs. Cena feud of the recent times.  The unfortunate part is just how obvious WWE is making the championship match.  Will Cena fail in his quest to cash in?  Will someone interfere and cost him the win?  If that's the case, then high five to the creative writers.  If it's just a big history-making victory for John Cena to try to outdo Hulk Hogan or someone else's resume, then why the need to even win Money in the Bank?  Someone could have easily booked the match, or they could have set up a tournament leading to the match.

Thankfully, Dolph Ziggler is a wildcard, as it's unknown when he's going to cash in.  The best guess is that Sheamus will be layed out when he does, but at least it will provide an exciting moment in WWE history.  For now, Ziggler seems to have the potential to steal the show, although from the way it's looking Chris Jericho isn't going to let that happen anytime soon.

Do you expect John Cena to win when he faces CM Punk for the WWE title, or will something else happen?  When do you think Dolph Ziggler will cash in, on Raw, on Smackdown, on a PPV this year?

I don't expect Cena to win this Monday. I think something is going to happen to make sure the title stays on Punk. Maybe Big Show comes out to interfere because of what Cena did last Monday.
What I really want, is for WWE to make CM Punk the next Bruno Sammartino. He keeps the title for 8-9 years. It would certainly be interesting.
