Alberto Del Rio will defend his WWE Championship at Vengeance against John Cena! It was one of the first major announcements made by Raw SuperShow’s new Interim General Manager, John Laurinaitis.
Cena has been ready for his rematch since he lost the WWE Title at WWE Hell in a Cell in a Triple Threat Match against Del Rio and Punk, when The Mexican Aristocrat locked Cena out of the cell and used a steel pipe to defeat The Straight Edge Superstar. However, Laurinaitis has declared that this is Cena’s last chance at the WWE Championship. If he doesn’t defeat Del Rio on Oct. 23, he doesn’t get another title match against him. Cena stated that he only needs one chance at Del Rio – a Superstar who has yet to beat him in his life.
Now that Del Rio has won his second WWE Title, the Mexican Superstar isn’t ready to give up his destiny just yet. After defeating both Cena and Punk at WWE Hell in a Cell, Del Rio is determined to hold onto the most coveted prize in WWE, no matter the cost and regardless of the stipulation.
Will Cena capture the WWE Championship for a record 11 times at Vengeance? Or will Del Rio finally defeat Cena, one-on-one, to continue his title reign? Watch Vengeance Oct. 23 at 8 ET/5 PT, live on pay-per-view.
