WWE News & Notes 2014: What's Next for John Cena, Randy Orton & Dean Ambrose in the Aftermath of Hell in a Cell?
Despite his loss to John Cena at the Hell in a Cell (HIAC) pay-per-view (PPV), the coming weeks should bring some interesting twists and turns for Randy Orton. Signs show that he will likely go face in the near future after Seth Rollins Curbed Stomped him to end Monday Night Raw last week.
Both "The Apex Predator" and Rollins competed in separate Hell in a Cell cage matches -- Rollins defeating Dean Ambrose (with help from Bray Wyatt) and John Cena snatching a WWE World Heavyweight championship opportunity away from Orton after putting him through a table with an Attitude Adjustment off the top rope.
But after last week's betrayal by Rollins on his Authority cohort and Orton looking for Rollins throughout the HIAC PPV to have some words with him regarding his transgressions, Orton's face turn seems well on its way. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the company feels that "The Apex Predator" has not been selling well as heel of late and that a feud with the "Money in the Bank" suitcase-holder may fix that.
While Orton feuds with Rollins and Wyatt beefs with Ambrose in a battle of "crazy versus crazy," that leaves Cena with another title run for Brock Lesnar's title. "The Anomaly" set to defend his championship at the Royal Rumble and the WWE is in talks with Lesnar about doing more dates on his schedule in order to build up his next title defense at the January PPV against Cena with two other PPV -- Survivor Series and TLC -- schedule between now and the Royal Rumble.
