Last night at the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, John Cena won the WWE title for the eighth time in a cage match, defeating the Miz and John Morrison. However, it should be noted that the original WWE creative plans called for John Cena to defeat the Miz last month at WrestleMania 27 from Atlanta, Georgia.
Additionally, as seen on the show last night, they decided to give the World Championship for the first time to Christian. However, WWE booking planned for Alberto Del Rio to go over, but they put a last-minute audible to put Christian on top and win the title. At least as of the weekend, Christian first title program was slated to be with Mark Henry.
