WWE News: John Cena Returns And Teams Up With Becky Lynch On Smackdown
John Cena was absent from WWE programming for a long time. He started appearing on the shows from December 26th onwards. Till date, all the appearances were untelevised house shows. Last night ended the tradition as he came back to TV, finally. This time around, WWE gave a big surprise by bringing him back on Smackdown first rather than WWE Raw.
For the past couple of years, John Cena comes back as the New Year kicks off. This makes him available for the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania season. This year around, the norm continues as he returned just in time for the most hyped season of the year. Plus, he also featured in a segment that might have already got into the ‘moment of the year’ candidate.
Coming into the show, John Cena greeted the crowd with his usual good verbal skills. Then an expected challenge followed to the Smackdown Live locker room. Earlier, anyone from the male locker room would come out to have a match with him. But this time, ‘The Man’ came out to have a confrontation with him.
Becky Lynch already had an earlier confrontation with John Cena on the social media. So this stand-off inside the ring was much-anticipated for the fans. The former Smackdown women’s champion declared that she runs things around her in the absence of the Cenation Leader. So he might just decide to back off and leave the ring for Becky Lynch.
Andrade Cien Almas and Zelina Vega interrupted the segment. The manager of the former NXT Champion took some verbal jabs to Becky Lynch creating a volatile situation. John Cena proposed a match right there where he had to make Becky Lynch as his tag team partner. This created a dream mixed tag team between these two.
John Cena was rolling in the match with his pendant shoulder blocks followed by Five Knuckle Shuffle. The Attitude Adjustment was next on Almas. But Cena seemed so charged up that he forgot to pin Almas. Becky Lynch came from behind and sent his partner out of the ring. Vega tried to take advantage of this distraction by coming up with a schoolboy.
But Becky Lynch countered it locking in the dis-arm-her. Vega had no option but to tap out to the submission move. The win earned huge cheers from the crowd where The Man outsmarted John Cena. Lynch even mocked Cena’s ‘you can’t see me’ gesture after the match. It was a hell of an entertaining segment where veteran Cena put over the most popular roster member of the current time.
