There is a strong difference being laid out between "WWE Monday Night Raw" and "SmackDown Live." While "Raw" remains the more entertainment flavored show, with authority figures playing politics, "SmackDown Live" seems to be more about playing fair. That was evident this week as "Raw" saw Stephanie McMahon keeping Roman Reigns from getting a world title show while on "SmackDown Live," Daniel Bryan actually gave Dean Ambrose the title shot he deserved.

The setup For the 'WWE' World Title opportunity

On "WWE Monday Night Raw," a triple threat match was set up for the world title but wrestlers had to earn their shots, even former world champion Seth Rollins. However, on "SmackDown Live,"Dean Ambrose lost his world title to A.J. Styles and was promised a solo match for the title even if a triple threat was created with John Cena included in that match.

It got even better this week. The next "SmackDown Live WWE Network" special is in three weeks, but Daniel Bryan came out at the end of tonight’s "SmackDown Live" episode and told Dean Ambrose that he would get his solo match against A.J. Styles next week on "SmackDown Live," two weeks before the triple threat is to take place.

The sacrifice of John Cena

It was interesting when the WWE Draft took place that "SmackDown Live" promised that they wanted to bring in the New Era but then drafted names like John Cena and Randy Orton while ignoring names like Cesaro and Kevin Owens.

However, it looks like the signing of John Cena is paying off in another way.

The best way to show the world that the New Era is here is to sacrifice former major stars in big matches. On "SmackDown Live" this week, not only did Dean Ambrose beat John Cena in a singles match on free TV, but he did it cleanly and Cena showed that he was hurting after the match. This is how John Cena can make new stars in 2016 and beyond. It is time for Super Cena to die and a John Cena that puts over talent to thrive.

The 'SmackDown' World Championship match

The triple threat match between WWE World Champion A.J. Styles, John Cena, and Dean Ambrose is still on for "No Mercy," which takes place on Oct. 9 on the WWE Network. However, the man holding the world title heading into that match might change as the A.J. Styles vs. Dean Ambrose world title match takes place next Tuesday night on "SmackDown Live."
