Raw Review: John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

2 of 14


Michael Cole, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and John Cena promo

Cole was in the ring to open the show, as he introduced the three Hall of Famers.

Cole asked HBK what he thought of Cena’s rematch, but HBK didn’t side with Cena. HBK said there’s no way that Cena wins at SummerSlam.

Flair wavered, as he showed some adoration for Cena, but eventually sided with HBK, saying that Cena could not pull out the win at SummerSlam.

Hogan then said that he would be rooting for Cena, but stopped short of saying he would win. HBK and Flair agreed, saying that they like Cena as well, but they don’t think he can win. Finally, Hogan made his pick, saying that Cena would find a way to win, but HBK and Flair didn’t believe him. As the three Hall of Famers argued, Cena made his way to the ring.

Cena said he liked and respected all three men, and that he understood why they lost a little faith in him, but said that they shouldn’t be so quick to make such bold statements.

Cena told HBK and Flair that they were wrong in picking against him, and that Hogan shouldn’t doubt his ability to stand toe-to-toe with Lesnar.

Cena admitted that he took a serious beating from Lesnar at SummerSlam. He said that Lesnar would probably put a good beating on him at Night of Champions, but he said he knows what it takes to be in the ring with Lesnar, and he’s more ready now than he has ever been.

This was a really good segment. The three Hall of Famers showed serious concern for Cena’s ability to get through this match with Lesnar, than Cena came out and did a good job of showing the confidence it will take to stand a chance in this match. Everything that needed to happen, happened.
