John Cena returned to WWE in the last part of the pay-per-view Money in the Bank, launching the challenge to Roman Reigns and thrilling all the crowd crowded in the stands. The 16-time world champion had his last match at WrestleMania 36 last year, when he was defeated by Bray Wyatt in the controversial 'Firefly Fun House match'
Growing commitments in Hollywood and advancing age have gradually pushed the Bostonian away from the ring, but he has decided to go back to his roots and will now be the point man at SummerSlam. The most prestigious event of the summer will be staged in Las Vegas on August 21st. In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo analyzed how Cena's storylines often end up hurting other wrestlers.
The leader of the Cenation has beaten numerous emerging stars during his long career, including Alex Riley, Rusev, Wade Barrett and Bray Wyatt himself. After being defeated by John, a period of very strong descent began for these four athletes.
Cena and Wyatt had already met at WrestleMania 30 in 2014, with Cena victorious amid controversy. "It is no coincidence that many of the superstars who have been beaten by John Cena no longer have a future," began Russo.
“Cena is now busy in Hollywood most of the time, but he likes to come back every now and then to teach some young guy a lesson. It's like John is some kind of roadblock impossible to get through. A rout against John Cena won't lift you up anymore.
I cannot explain exactly the causes of this process, but you cannot tell me that it is a coincidence. There is a very specific design behind it,"he added to the dose. Some time ago, former WWE producer Arn Anderson accused him of having buried The Nexus in 2010.
The reference was to the match held at SummerSlam (2010), which left indelible aftermath in the following months.
Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
