The Miz and John Cena will continue their main-event series on the next WWE pay per view. The WWE Over the Limit 2011 headliner featuring John Cena vs. The Miz in an I Quit Match was made official on WWE RAW.
[adinserter block=”2″]Cena vs. Miz in the main-event is about the most predictable main-event the WWE could produce for Over the Limit. The I Quit stipulation will add a twist to the long feud. Cena picked the stipulation as he had the power to add any stipulation he wanted to the match, although it doesn’t make a lot of sense.
I should note that the Seattle Key Arena website has since removed the actual match listing. Chances are pretty good that the WWE weren’t very happy about their main-event being leaked ahead of time and worked with the arena to rectify the error. The match became official Monday night on WWE RAW.
The match was made official on WWE RAW. The Miz won a Triple Threat Match against Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio. The match was announced by the G.M. at the beginning of RAW and headlined the show.The Miz pinned Mysterio to win the match and earn the title shot. Cena then walked on stage and told The Miz that there would be no excuses and it would be an I-Quit Match.
Cena ended the lengthy WWE championship reign of The Miz at Extreme Rules. Unlike past WWE champions who lose their title and wind up demoted to the middle of the pack, The Miz will be sticking around at the top of the cards. Recent reports indicate that WWE management love him and have told business partners that they plan to continue The Miz’s big push.
[adinserter block=”1″]Even with a loss, this is the kind of a match that could really do a lot to strengthen The Miz as a top WWE guy. A tough loss in a violent match could help give him a boost of credibility as something other than a goof or cowardly heel. With Morrison out, maybe the WWE uses this match to build towards a babyface Miz turn as well.
Other than Christian vs. Randy Orton in a rematch for the WWE world heavyweight title, any other match would purely be a guess at this point. I’d probably lean towards a colossal Kelly Kelly vs. Karma match, maybe another Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus match, and Kofi Kingston or Rey Mysterio vs. R-Truth. The WWE is expected to make the top matches official in the next 48 hours.
Update: The match was made official on Monday’s RAW.
