U.S. Champion John Cena vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens
John Cena is an anomaly. The guy is quite possibly the hardest working wrestler to ever grace the squared circle. He has granted more wishes for the Make-A-Wish foundation than any athlete alive today. He sells a ton of merchandise for the WWE, and rarely misses an event.
Even with a part-time acting gig. Yet, there are people out there in masses who despise the guy. They constantly want someone else to step into his role and “Be the Man” for the WWE.
Enter Kevin Owens. 15 years in the independent wrestling circuits and his push is here. He hit Cena with his big move two weeks in a row. This match is not for the U.S. title nor the NXT Title.
It’s just a match between two guys who needed to have a wrestling mark’s dream match. So John could do the favors for Owens here and take a loss, albeit a controversial one.
