John Cena vs. Big E in 2014?

wwe is reporting that John Cena would like to work a program with Big E at some point this year. The likely time frame would be after SummerSlam, as his current program with Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family is expected to carry on through WWE Payback, and potentially all the way to SummerSlam. 

As it's been reported in the past, Big E is one of the "John Cena guys", as he's been spotted working out at Cena's gym, where he holds several of the records. One would assume that if WWE has plans to run a Cena-Big E program that one of them would need to turn heel. Given that "E" just dropped the Intercontinental Championship and hasn't been getting over as a babyface, that turn could be coming in the next few months. 

For the past several months Cena has been noticeably absent from the title picture, opting instead to work with younger talent. He dropped the WWE Championship to Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam 2013, and has since worked programs with Damien Sandow and the Wyatt Family. It would make sense to see Cena step into a program with Big E following the conclusion of his current feud. 

New CM Punk Figure

rex_056_instagramRingside Collectibles has released a brand new exclusive CM Punk action figure. The collectible features a younger long-haired Punk during his time in ECW, and comes with his classic skeleton shirt, an ECW microphone, and the ECW World Championship, marking the first time Mattel has ever released the title. You can purchase the new CM Punk figure at Ringside Collectibles, following the link provided above. 

Unless the former WWE Champion returns to the company in the future, or WWE decides to release some sort of throw-back figure, this very well could be one of, if not the final CM Punk action figure in production for quite some time.
