There was no need whatsoever for Cena to win the Rumble, I didn't want HHH or Batista or Taker to win it either. I wanted someone new, someone who could have used a push, you take your pick I don't really care who for the most part.
The Rumble should be used to elevate guys to main event status. I don't really care for the most part to argue over who should have been elevated but Kennedy as a face, not a heel, would have been a great choice to get someone into main event status because of the fact he is good on the mic and he can go in the ring plus with him winning the MITB last year and him getting screwed out of it due to bad luck I thought he deserved the push. Matt Hardy, CM Punk, Shelton Benjamin, Elijah Burke, John Morrison would have also been ok with me for guys deserving a push but I just thought Kennedy should get it since he had won MITB and got screwed out of it and never got a title shot.
Go look at the old rumble winners, some which weren't main event guys just yet...Yokozuna, HBK, Austin and Batista all won the Rumble before they became main eventers and before they won the WWE championship belt for the first time. Also Benoit and Rey(who were main eventers for the most part already) won the Rumble before they got their first title reigns in WWE.
I could keep this rant going on forever. I am just so sick of seeing Cena month after month overcome the odds and I thought everything was going pretty good with out him, ratings and ppv buyrates stayed at the normal numbers with Cena's absence. I have tickets to Raw tonight in Philly and I honestly don't even want to go just to see Cena come out first and have to listen to his boring ass promos about how he overcame sh!t again. I'm also going to WrestleMania 24 and I am really considering not even bothering. I'm disgusted right now with how sh!t went down last night, yes it was a surprise but almost the entire crowd booed the sh!t out of him after the initial shock of him coming out. You could hear it when he was throwing punches with HHH, people were booing when Cena hit HHH but everyone was screaming yeahhhhh when HHH hit Cena. The crowd outside had non stop Cena sucks chants.
On the bright side at least The Not So Great Khali got the appropriate response from the crowd, with everyone chanting you cant wrestle at him.
