Over the course of his 10 years competing in WWE rings, the frontiers that John Cena has not yet crossed are few and far between. Yet at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 15, the WWE Universe will witness the rarity of a Cenation leader “first.” Stepping into a ring with ladders strewn around it and a championship contract dangling high above, Cena will compete in his first-ever Money in the Bank Ladder Match, taking on fellow former WWE Champions (not to mention Money in the Bank vets) Big Show, Chris Jericho and Kane.
How will Cena’s lack of experience affect his odds of taking home the highly prized guaranteed contract? Though the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is an especially unpredictable contest, can we ascertain anything about the Cenation leader’s chances July 15 by examining past examples of Cena’s maiden voyages into big-game situations, whether it was his first match on The Grandest Stage of Them All, his first Elimination Chamber or some other match type?
