John Cena is unanimously recognized as one of the best performers of all time in the pro-wrestling discipline. In addition to being a 16-time world champion, the Boston champion has won the United States Championship five times, the World Tag Team Championship twice and the WWE Tag Team Championship twice, making WWE known around the world, leading it on their shoulders for over a decade.
He also won two editions of the Royal Rumble match, three editions of the Elimination Chamber match and the 2012 edition of Money in the Bank. In recent years, however, the leader of the ‘Cenation’ has moved away from the ring to become a Hollywood star, following in the footsteps of the even more famous The Rock.
His last appearance in WWE dates back to the edition of Summerslam 2021, the most important event of the summer, in which he was defeated by Roman Reigns at the end of a no holds barred battle, just before Brock Lesnar showed up.
What did John Cena do?
During the last episode of Monday Night Raw that aired this week, Vince McMahon wanted to appear once again, after the outbreak of his extramarital scandal, with the Chairman currently decayed to make room for his daughter, who introduced his former champion.
world, for the celebration of his 20 years in the rings of the family company. Once in the ring, John Cena told fans that he doesn’t know when he will be able to return to the ring to fight and that he is now 45 and therefore his performances may be numbered by now.
At this juncture, many wondered if Austin Theory would come out of the backstage, to get into the ring and attack the leader of the Chain Gang but it didn’t, even if the two had a very brief confrontation backstage, with the thing that brings fans to think that at Summerslam we will almost certainly see this long-awaited match between Cena and Theory, long sought by the two.
Speaking to TV Insider, Kurt Angle named his match against John Cena at WWE No Mercy in 2003 as his favorite bout between them. “I would say probably where I made him tap. I believe it may have been No Mercy 2003. We had a really good match.
John stayed with me and worked really hard. He hit all his moves. The match was magic and one of my favorite matches. All my favorite matches though are when I make someone tap out,” Angle said, laughing.
