John Cena is someone who is in the headlines everyday. He has headlined several PPV's and did main-event severa shows in the WWE. He has also been a poster boy for the organization. However, recently Cena has not made much appearances post WrestleMania. Post WrestleMania, we have not seen nor much heard of Cena. Even if we did, it was mostly about his personal life and breakup with her fiancee. This is not a good symbol for his future. Winning the Universal title could however, alter the entire scenario.

Cena as the World Champion has made an outstanding statement in the WWE. If he wins the Universal title once again, he can hug the spotlight and give the WWE Universe their money's worth. Cena as a Champion is unparalleled for any wrestler to match. He is a Champion people loves to identify themselves with. Hence, Cena should win the Universal title at-least once.

4. Feud with Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman is a 'monster among men'. He can crush anyone and everyone. Recently, he won the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV and also the RAW Tag Team Championship. At the Money in the Bank PPV, he won the contract and have decide to cash it upon Brock Lesnar. However, WWE could pull a new gimmick and make Cena the Universal Champion so that he can face Braun Strowman.

Both these wrestlers have faced each other but in a triple threat match. They have never had a single's competition. Therefore, Strowman and Cena is like Monster vs Legend. This rivalry could change the career for both these players. WWE Universe would love to see this contest. Therefore, the WWE management should try and make it happen at the earliest.

3. New Story-line

When it comes to delivering promos and John Cena is arguably the best. WWE can put forth outstanding story-line when it comes to John Cena. Cena's rivalries are always top notch and the best thing about him is that, he can bring the best out of his opponent. Whether it was his rivalry with Randy Orton, Authority for the title, WWE Universe was always treated with glamourous rivalries from Cena.

Thus, if he win's the title, Cena can make Monday Night RAW interesting again by bringing forth beautiful story-lines. Brock Lesnar has failed to do so. Therefore, Cena should be given this World title shot immediately. He can feud with the likes of Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and remaining other superstars.

2. Only World Championship he hasn't won (since he didn't compete in ECW)

For John Cena, winning World Championship is like his hobby. He has won both both the WWE Championship (13 times) and the World Heavyweight Chapionship (3 times). Since he never competed in the ECW brand, therefore he never fought for the ECW World Championship. Thus, there was no World Championship title, which Cena has never won.

Currently the Universal Championship is hosted by the RAW brand. Since Cena is a free agent, he can compete in either RAW or in SmackDown (not in NXT). Therefore, Cena deserves to compete for the Universal Championship. It would be a glory for RAW and also for the title to have John Cena fighting for it. He has pulled several stints in the past as the World Champion, hence the World would celebrate him as their next Universal Champion.

1. Most World Championship reigns

Currently, John Cena is a sixteen-time World Champion. He holds the record for the most number of World title reigns along with Ric Flair. A player of his stature deserves to go down in history with the maximum number of world title reigns. He has not been given proper booking in recent history and thus, Cena has not been in the Championship scenario for quite some time. On the contrary, another part timer- Brock Lesnar is unnecessarily kept as the Universal Champion.

If Cena wins the Universal title, he could be a better World Champion than his predecessors. He has proved it in the past that he is a fighting Champion and it would be fabulous to see Cena holding the most prestigious title in the WWE. No other wrestler is close to his record of 16 Championship reigns and if he wins it for the 17th time, this record is almost nearky impossible to break. Therefore, he should win the Universal Championship at-least once.
