Quote of the Week: John Cena threatens to sue Triple H on Raw

From this past Monday night's episode of Raw:

"What the hell are you talking about? You know, just because your best friends, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels, don't think I can beat Brock Lesnar it doesn't mean I can't and it doesn't mean I won't. Funny, those same two guys thought that I could never beat you at WrestleMania 22 yet you tapped out. And if you don't remember that, you can go back and watch it for $9.99.

"This isn't back in the day, Hunter, you're not kibitzing with your buddies about who you like and who you don't. You're running the company, you're the COO. Which means I don't care how many times you watch the footage, I don't care how many Hall of Famers you talk to, I invoked my rematch clause, you authorized it. Which means if you even think about taking it away from me, I think I'm taking you to court. Yeah. I will sue you for every single penny that you have and then I'll be COO of the company and my first order of business will be to look you straight in the eye and say 'Triple H ... you're fired!'

"I'll let you save yourself a headache and your job. The rematch is happening. I meant what I said last week; I'm not just going to beat Brock Lesnar, I'm going to beat Brock Lesnar's ass."

Out of context, and maybe even within it, this is a heel promo from John Cena, right? The reference to the price of the WWE Network followed by threats of a lawsuit if he doesn't get his way. There is no bigger heel than the legal system and the idea that a top babyface would handle his business this way is downright bizarre, especially when the top babyface in question is John Cena.

It led to a tag team main event that saw Cena run through everyone, proving he is, in fact, ready for a rematch with Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions on Sun., Sept. 21, 2014, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
