Is the Kane/Cena Feud a Good or Bad Idea?

Hey Everyone. I'm actually getting sick of the name, DK Wrestling Savior, because I'm not the wrestling savior, I only wish I was rich enough to be one. I'm just an opinion man, so look for a change...right around January 2nd. *he he*
I'm going to touch on a few things about the Jericho return before I go into the Kane vs Cena feud. This will be another quick one because TNA needs some love next time around. Here we go.
It has been reported and debated over and over again that the January 2nd video is for Chris Jericho's return. And while I may have been wrong in my last post about a few things, regarding some possible alternatives, I still contend that it's not for Jericho. I believe Jericho is returning and soon, but not on the 2nd. I realize I will probably eat my words in two weeks when it's finally revealed, but in my opinion, it should go like this.
Jericho is expected to return for a short run and feud with CM Punk that is supposed to culminate at Wrestlemania. It would be a phenomenal match and one that everyone wants to see. However, there are some problems with this. First, he's going to get a huge pop when he returns. Is that really what you want to contend with your new top face? Second, what's he going to do when he returns? Come in and for no rhyme or reason, just start something with CM Punk and start jobbing out right away? Either scenario is a lose/lose situation. Jericho's return should be as a mystery entrant at the Royal Rumble. He should win the Rumble, and over the next few weeks, make his decision on which title to go after, then go heel and choose Punk for Wrestlemania.
Now onto the real topic of this blog...The Kane vs John Cena feud. Is this a good idea or a bad one? Let's break it down.
This feud is a good idea because...I can't think of a single reason except it gives Cena something to do between now and Wrestlemania. Since Cena has noted the past two weeks that he'll see The Rock at Wrestlemania, I think it's safe to say we won't see or hear from the precious one, anytime before, say, mid-March. Well, you can't have a feud with one person promoting it and the other one absent, and since you can't just keep Cena off TV until then, you need something, anything for him to do, without him getting in CM Punk's way.
This feud is a bad idea because they just built Kane up for his resurrection and return and all that good stuff, and it would make them look really stupid if they just jobbed him out to Cena. On the flip side of this scenario, they're building up the Cena vs Rock match as if it's the greatest and most epic spectacle to ever grace a television screen. Well, that loses merit if John Cena is involved in a feud with Kane and is losing left and right.
So, now it begs the question, why this feud and why now? I personally think it is another chapter in the Cena Heel turn Saga. Will he turn? Will he be able to keep up his Rise Above Hate movement? Kane has attacked him twice and gotten very nice pops for it. It doesn't take a genius to realize that Kane's return would have been popular among the masses. And just because someone beats up Cena, doesn't make them instant heels anymore. Surely the WWE had to have known this. So why do it? What were they expecting?
I personally think they are testing the theory out once more. Like a previous post of mine regarding Cena's heel turn, I think they're turning to us to see what sticks and what slips.
I don't read spoilers, I watch the shows, so I'll be waiting until the weekend for my next post. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone is having a great week.
