Renee Young Interviews John Cena

Backstage, Renee Young is with John Cena. She talks about Cena squaring off against Cesaro later tonight. Cena talks again about some promising new WWE Superstars and how if they want to prove they’re the next generation, they need to go through him to prove it. With that being said, Cena says Cesaro can prove it tonight by going through him. Cena’s music hits and he walks off and heads out to the arena.

John Cena vs. Cesaro

Cena’s little message to the camera is “it’s fighting time,” or something to that effect. He sprints to the ring, tosses the hat to the crowd, etc. It’s time for the Cena vs. Cesaro match here tonight on RAW, folks! We head to a commercial during Cena’s entrance. When we return from commercial, Cena is finishing up his entrance. Michael Cole plugs Cena on the “Steve Austin Show” podcast, which he announces comes out tomorrow.

Cesaro’s theme music hits and out he comes. Michael Cole talks about Ron Simmons trending number one overall worldwide on Twitter right now. Swagger and Colter pat Cesaro on the back as he heads into the ring for this one-on-one match against Cena.

The bell rings and here we go. A dueling “let’s go Cena” and “Cena sucks” chant breaks out from the fans in Denver. Cesaro and Cena trade headlocks and Cena ends up grounding The Real American member as we see Swagger and Colter looking on from outside the ring. Cena gets the better of Cesaro so Cesaro rolls out to the floor to recover.

When Cesaro comes back into the ring another very loud “let’s go Cena” and “Cena sucks” chant breaks out. Cena continues to go to work on Cesaro. Cesaro is fighting back now. Cesaro is now in control of the offensive flow of the match. Cesaro nails Cena with a big tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for a near fall and then does the “we the people” thing.

Cesaro continues to dominate Cena, attempting a number of quick near falls but never getting the three count. The fans rally behind Cena a bit as Cesaro continues to control him in this one-on-one contest. Cena slows Cesaro’s momentum with a huge flying neckbreaker for a near fall of his own. Cesaro cuts Cena’s offensive comeback short and goes to work on him outside the ring. On that note, we head to a mid-match commercial.

When we return from commercial, Cesaro is beating up Cena in the ring. He hits a big slam-style move on Cena for another near fall. Cena manages to kick out at two and a half. Cena starts fighting back, but Cesaro slows him down with a big sleeper hold. Cena fights out of it but Cesaro cuts his comeback attempt short with a huge clothesline.

Out of nowhere, Cesaro goes for the Cesaro Swing on Cena, but Cena reverses it into his STFU submission hold. Cesaro quickly escapes and powers Cena into a big gut-wrench-type slam. Cesaro bullies Cena into the corner and batters him with European uppercuts. Cena fights back and slams Cesaro down. Cena calls for the 5 Knuckle Shuffle. “You can’t see me.” He hits it.Cena goes for the A.A. but Cesaro avoids it.

Cesaro launches Cena up in the air and blasts him on the way down with a big European uppercut. A light “this is awesome” chant breaks out from the fans in Denver. The chant gains momentum and most in the arena are chanting it now. Cesaro goes for the Cesaro Swing again but Cena again counters, this time countering into a big DDT. Cena goes to the top rope but Cesaro blasts him with a European uppercut, knocking Cena all the way to the floor.

Cesaro climbs to the middle rope as Cena gets on the apron. From the apron, Cesaro hoists Cena all the way up for a superplex. Awesome stuff. He tries pinning Cena but Cena manages to kick out at two. Out of nowhere, Cena slaps Cesaro in the STFU. Cesaro makes it to the ropes but Cena yanks him to the middle of the ring. Cesaro reverses Cena into his Cesaro Swing, and this time he gets it. He swings Cena about ten times for a near fall, but Cena again finds a way to kick out at two.

Another loud “this is awesome” chant breaks out. Cesaro goes for the Neutralizer but Cena reverses it into an A.A. attempt. Cesaro escapes that. Cesaro goes for a move but Cena reverses into another A.A. attempt. He hits it this time. 1-2-3. Cena wins. Great match.

Winner: John Cena

Backstage: Randy Orton, Triple H, Batista & Alberto Del Rio

We return from commercial and see Orton backstage talking to someone. He tells the person that he appreciates all he’s done for him. We see it’s Triple H. HHH says it’s good to see Orton making an effort lately. Orton says he’s going to prove this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber that he’s got what it takes. Orton talks about going back to the Evolution days with HHH. He says he can’t imagine Batista as the face of the WWE. He continues to talk trash about Batista only to find out that Batista has been standing behind him the entire time. Batista tells Orton that he’s not the face of WWE, he’s the ass of WWE. Orton walks away. Alberto Del Rio walks up with a neck brace on and talks trash about Batista. Batista shoves Del Rio and walks off.

Los Matadores & Sin Cara vs. The Wyatt Family

After the backstage interview with O’Neil, we hear Los Matadores’ theme music. They come to the ring with El Torito. We head to a commercial during their ring entrance.

When we return from commercial, The Wyatt Family are finishing up their entrance. One of the members of Los Matadores starts things off and is quickly dominated by Harper and Rowan, who exchange some quick tags back-and-forth. Bray finally tags in, beats up the Matadores member briefly before tagging Rowan back in.

A big cluter-f takes place ending with El Torito diving on the Wyatt clan on the floor. Long story short, Bray hits Sin Cara with his Sister Abigail finisher. 1-2-3. The Wyatt Family wins.

      I have officially become a Cesaro fan.

      • rkostrikesfirst

        Bring back the clean – shaven underdog Viper- RKO!!!

    • DissapointedInWWE

      of course christian loses…

    • Derp

      They are doing a really piss poor job at building to Wrestlemania.

      • Derp

        STOP using my name. The comment is good though.

    • John

      Wish crowd starts shouting ‘You sold out’ at Bad news Barrett. Really I think he’s sold out

      • I’ve got some bad news…

        Not his fault he’s been lumped with a shit gimmick because they don’t know what to do with him. Yet another wasted talent.

        • Undertaker316

          i would have barret, cesaro,sheamus william regal, and drew mcintyre form an european wrestlers alliance like in wwe12 that way all guys are getting pushed

          • Aspergenx

            Problem is, now Randy Orton’s being forced to put up with being lumped with having a lousy gimmick because they seem to me as though they honestly haven’t got a single clue and just don’t know what to do with him. Same goes for many, many other guys in WWE.
            I’d have Orton go back to being the clean shaven underdog who kicked ass on and defeated opponnents, and who actually was handsome, intelligent, passionate, cool, funny, courageous, strong, fascinating and incredible on the mic, in-ring, and on pay-per-view.
            But why the hell should Randy Orton, or for that matter…any of the other guys in WWE….bother to give a flying f**king damn or possibly care about anyone else?!
            However since Randy Orton’s seeming as though he’s too scared to do that anymore….that’s just one of the numerous things that makes WWE so absolutely, disappointingly, dissatisfyingly, foully, annoyingly, hatefully objectionable these days.

            • Mavox

              orton’s match vs. sheamus was excellent and the cena vs. antonio cesaro match wasn’t.

            • Ned

              some would look at that as, the opposite of what you said is true

            • Chas Smith

              how orton’s behaving right now sucks badly is worse than ever! the situation feels hopeless, and even lousier than before. him being wwe world heavyweight champion, having facial hair, him being a bad guy just absolutely DESPICABLY SUCKS
              I HATE THIS!!!

      • Strike first 1

        Bad news is: Orton’s a heel in a way I sure as hell don’t like. which tremendously sucks! he was incredibly amazing, cool and passionate, intelligent, good and dedicated in a positive way! I miss all that about him!!!

      • Troz

        Orton totally sucks for selling out in the way he has!
        *thumbs down*

    • vitheiya priya.sr

      wow!cena has beat randy on last raw and now cesaro.my cena is only going to win the chamber match on sunday.best of luck cena.my support is always for you.

      • SJ

        Face the facts:
        Randy Orton had to presently allow John Cena, Antonio Cesaro and other guys in WWE recently to “win”. Meaning, be “put over” during a match against him.
        Why did he need to do this?
        Simply because he’s got to let them gain some momentum…this way, when he unleashes the badass sadistic, aggressive Viper who tends to surface in scenarios when and where needed….it will be just right. Too much and people misunderstand….and misconstrue things he’ll say and do…too little and it’s miserable for all involved. Randy Orton can actually go back to being clean-shaven, kicking ass on opponents and using his body language, eye contact, facial expressions, tone of voice, attitude and and things he says and does in an extremely fascinating, compelling, moving, touch-your-heart kinda’ way!
        I’ve been worried that he won’t be allowed to do that. Then again, wouldn’t it be pointess to disrespect other people who have a differing opinion than I have? Just because of how I tend to feel about Randy Orton….that in and of itself gives me enough problems because of the fact that when I see or hear other people say or do things that I see or deem to be disrespectful toward Randy….I find it EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE, ANTAGONISTIC AND HURTFUL!!!! Which causes me to feel that he’s being treated OBJECTIONABLY, WRONGLY, MEANLY, UNKINDLY, SADISTICALLY…..without being able or allowed to confront his opponnent in the ring, kick ass on the opponnent he’s fighting against…. and settle things.
        You know???
        Something else that bothers the hell out of and troubles me is that guys in WWE think it’s a joke of some kind if someone who posts onlline were to say….and actually mean:
        “If you intentionally hurt Randy Orton…and he’s upset or is injured or is in pain or whatever —- and I get triggered or behave aggressively or imitate his body language which I”ve seen him use in WWE when others have looked to harm him….and he behaves in a way that’s downright intimidating tiward them, why is it that those who antagonize, insult, disrespect him and are saying/doing mean things to him….why do they always get away with it????
        AND….why is it that if anyone who really, REALLY, REALLY likes and adores Randy when he’s allowed to be clean-shaven and be the resilient badass who can be sadistic and aggressive towards true threats but toward those who are non-threatening…he won’t hurt them intentionally….and the person who adores the hell out of
        Randy would get into huge trouble for standing up for Randy or physically defending him or verbally asserting themself on Randys behalf when they can.

        Why would someone choose or want to do that???
        It makes no sense.
        Well, it wouldn’t to some people.
        But it does to me.
        I care about Randy and I just feel that even though he may or may not need me to stand up for him, I WANT TO stand up for him!!!!
        Blame that on how I feel about him if you want, blame it on the fact that I care about him, and I adore him a LOT!!!
        The main problem I’ve run into is that, say….on WWE Raw-2/17/14’s episode….Randy had to cut a promo…but he was having to go about it in a chicken sh*t heelish way. Instead of as the resilient, sweet, reserved, strong badass….who’s clean shaven….like he used to be in 2008-2009 would’ve done things.
        THAT Randy Orton…..DESERVES TO WIN!!!!!

        • Justwowjusywow

        • vitheiya priya.sr

    • Undertaker316

      john cena beating cesaro is the kind of shit why people hate john cena yes it was great match because cesaro was carrying the whole match but wwe buried cesaro just like sandow and cena had a good match but sandow lost and people said he want buried but when was the last time you saw sandow on raw

      • SJ

        Randy Orton not being clean shaven at the appropriate time again and him not being allowed to combine that look…..and his non-verbal, as well as his verbal promo skills…AND vicious aggression toward avenging wrongs done to him DOES SUCK!!!!
        Randy Orton not being the clean-shaven badass, IS EXTREMELY:
        *NO FUN
        Under the right and appropriate condtions….truth is,
        Randy Orton’s promos/skits,matches,ppvs are able to be 90 zilion times better than John Cena’s. C.M. Punk’s, or anyone else’s…are!!!!
