John Cena Wrestles After SmackDown, Has Heartwarming Fan Interaction

John Cena

John Cena teamed with Dominik and Rey Mysterio to take on the Usos and Roman Reigns in the dark match main event of SmackDown at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK. Inside the Ropes’ own Sondra Ruth was in attendance to capture some of the action.

The dark main event saw Dominik Mysterio take most of the punishment in the match while the Bloodline regularly postured and held up their Universal and Tag Team Championships to brag to the crowd, eliciting vociferous boos. Eventually, the younger Mysterio made a hot tag to the green-clad Suicide Squad star, who pleased the crowd with multiple F5’s and Five Knuckle Shuffles. The Mysterios delivered a tandem 619 to a huge ovation before Cena eventually pinned Jimmy Uso to gain the win for his team.

Long known for his dedication to putting smiles on the faces of the youngest members of the WWE Universe, the master of Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect created a ‘life memory’ for one child in the audience after celebrating his win with his teammates.

Well before this heartwarming moment, Cena traded barbs with Roman Reigns and said that he only needed to pin the Tribal Chief ‘1, 2, 3′ to become a first-time Universal Champion and secure his 17th World Championship in WWE. The memorable promo contained references to Cena’s ex-fiancée Nikki Bella, Reigns’ ex-Shield partner and current AEW star Dean Ambrose with Cena even referencing CM Punk’s fond farewell as WWE Champion at Money In The Bank 2011.

John Cena will find out whether his words come to fruition when Roman Reigns puts his Universal Title on the line at SummerSlam on August 21.
