Cena may tag with Hulk Hogan against "Rowdy" Roddy Piper at WrestleMania 30

Who should WWE Champion CM Punk choose to face at Hell in a Cell: John Cena or Ryback? - 9th October 2012 (Credit: WWE)

Behind one cage door is John Cena — a 10-time WWE Champion, a veteran of this unforgiving match who will do whatever it takes to reclaim the coveted title he hasn’t held in more than a year.

Behind the other cage door is Ryback — a snarling, ferocious beast who has devoured every Superstar in his path and just keeps demanding to be fed more and more.

Which Hell in a Cell would you choose to step inside?

That is the unenviable decision that CM Punk now faces after Mr. McMahon issued an ultimatum to the WWE Champion at the close of Monday night's Raw. For Punk, it comes down to picking between the devil he knows or the devil he doesn't have the slightest clue about. On the surface alone, it seems like the choice should be Cena, especially considering his recovery from elbow surgery. But if you look closer, you'll realize that it's not all that simple for The Straight Edge Superstar.

WWE.com is here to examine the pros and cons of both options Punk has to choose from as Hell in a Cell looms just weeks away. Which opponent he selects might make all the difference between extending his impressive WWE Title reign and losing the grip on his championship gold completely ...

Even if you believe that Cena will be fully recovered from elbow surgery in time for Hell in a Cell — and there's a good chance he won't be — history indicates that this match could work in the WWE Champion's favor. Punk and Cena have gone head-to-head more than 10 times dating back to 2009, but it's Punk who has come out on the winning end of two of their most important clashes for the WWE Title.

In 2011, The Straight Edge Superstar defeated Cena at Money in the Bank and took him down again one month later at SummerSlam. Punk even knows how Cena typically operates inside the confines of Hell in a Cell, having battled him and Alberto Del Rio in a Triple Threat Match at Hell in a Cell 2011. With a devious mastermind like Paul Heyman giving Punk advice from outside the Cell, conquering Cena might even be easier than those past showdowns.

It's also apparent what Cena wants: the WWE Championship. Ryback, on the other hand, might not care about the title more than he cares about the destruction of his opponents. Is Punk ready to be trapped inside a steel structure with an unpredictable wrecking machine? Yeah, facing Cena definitely feels like the much safer alternative.

For several weeks, Punk has been clamoring for respect ad nauseam. He's tried to demand it with his words and even beat it out of WWE Legends like Bret "Hit Man" Hart and Mick Foley. But if Punk really wants to prove himself worthy of everyone's respect, how about accomplishing something no other Superstar has been remotely able to do? Yes, we're talking about being the first to defeat Ryback.

Getting inside Hell in a Cell with the 6-foot-3, nearly 300-pound juggernaut is a ridiculously scary proposition, but if Punk could break Ryback's food chain, he'd have a victory that would silence the doubters and possibly make his WWE Championship reign be viewed as one of the very best of all time. There may not ever be a greater proving ground match for The Straight Edge Superstar than the one that stands in front of him right now.

Simply put, Ryback could be the Andre the Giant to Punk's Hulk Hogan. (Credit: WWE)

WWE Legends Of WrestleMania

Very rarely has an athlete entered the ring who can walk the walk and talk the talk immediately. John Cena is one of those athletes. Using an uncanny ability to perform in the ring and at the microphone in his own unique way, Cena spent his rookie year in WWE challenging the best in the business for in-ring supremacy.

A former football star at Springfield College, Cena spent his college career developing two activities that would prove to define him—training and rapping. Now he is doing both in front of millions on a weekly basis and is one of the most popular young Superstars on SmackDown!

Cena claims to already be a legend. While that issue may be in doubt, there is no denying that he has the talent to be a legend one day. He has faced some of the very best to ever compete in WWE and has held his own. And like most legends, Cena used the biggest possible stage to have one of the greatest moments of his career when he defeated the Big Show at WrestleMania XX to earn his first Championship -- the United States Championship!

John Cena: The busiest Superstar in sports-entertainment - September 30, 2006

WWE Champion John Cena just might be the busiest man in sports-entertainment. Tonight, he'll guest star on an episode of FOX's MADtv. That's just one of his many appearances building toward Oct. 13, the nationwide opening of the movie he stars in, WWE Films' The Marine.

Cena recently shot the cover of the November FLEX magazine; he toughed out boot camp with the U.S. Marines at Parris Island, S.C.; he just attended Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition in Las Vegas; and he filmed the MADtv episode, which airs tonight at 11 ET. But on Oct. 3, Cena will kick it into overdrive at the world premiere of The Marine at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in southern California.

"My schedule means a lot less sleep, a few more cups of coffee and a whole lot of good times," Cena told WWE.com.

From September to October, Cena has three military base visits in his plans – Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City; Fort Jackson in Columbia, S.C.; and Scott Air Force Base in St. Louis.

"I'm looking forward to all of these upcoming events, especially those with the Marines," Cena said.

After the world premiere on Oct. 3, Cena's schedule certainly doesn't slow down. Before the movie opens nationwide on Oct. 13, the WWE Champion will do shoots for People magazine and USA Today newspaper, and will be featured in a USA Weekend story on Oct. 8. He'll walk the red carpet at VH1's Hip Hop Honors at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Oct. 7, and appear on the morning talk show Live with Regis and Kelly on Oct. 9 and on VH1's Totally '80s the same week. He'll tape segments for MTV's The Ten and M2's Rock Countdown, and will embark on a satellite media tour and a national radio press tour. Whew! And that's just covering a portion of the WWE Champion's schedule. Cena insists on keeping a whirlwind pace to promote The Marine, WWE and WWE Films. But even with his busy schedule, Cena never fails to neglect his No. 1 priority – defending the WWE Championship.

"I think the success of The Marine is an integral part of launching WWE Films as a brand. If WWE Films does well, WWE does better – it all works in conjunction with everything. If more people who don't know what WWE is about watch The Marine and decide to tune into RAW, we get a bigger audience. I said this five years ago when I started – we have the best show on earth, and I want everyone to know about it, and The Marine is a way for everyone to know about it," Cena said.

"I've done everything from Parris Island to train with the United States Marine Corps, to shooting the cover of FLEX magazine, to Entertainment Tonight, MADtv, VH1 – basically just trying to get the word of The Marine out there."
