It is not just a good thing, it is a great thing and here is why. Cena gets to play the tweener as an aging veteran. Cena's time is almost up, he won't be around forever. With Triple H, Undertaker, Jericho, Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Mysterio all gone or taking extended periods of time off. This allows WWE to push new talents and make new superstars that are going to eventually replace Cena. We've started to see this with Ryback as early as Monday night. He is standing over the champion. If you're going to get a new superstar over who better than Cena? People may not like he is the face of the company or that he is holding the title when he doesn't need to, but it allows for a new hungry up and comer that is going to eventually replace Cena and be made into something more. Primetime Players feuding with Epico/Primo isn't going to get them over, but Titus O'Neil beating a John Cena would. Smaller feuds are nice, but taking on a big name can establish people nicely, if done properly. I see Cena as a "passing the torch champion" similar to Andre the Giant-Hulk Hogan, I think during his reign as champion this time. I could be way off base, just an opinion/idea I have as far as him being champion. Of course, if this is not the case, then WWE just ran in circles and it was a wasted time for him to be champion.
