John Cena Gets His Revenge On Jon Stewart, Hits Him With Finisher
Jon Stewart played spoiler in John Cena's historic title bout against Seth Rollins at Sunday's Summerslam at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. His reasoning? He couldn't stand to see John Cena break Ric Flair's record for most titles held before retirement (16). That's a pretty weak justification for taking a steel chair and giving Rollins the match, plus the distinction of being both the WWE and U.S. title holder, considering that Stewart and Rollins have bad blood dating back to a year ago.
Cena had a chance to speak with Stewart during Raw last night, and he did exactly that (and then he kicked his ass).
Jon Stewart: "Here is what I say to you tonight. With respect, with respect, it was a beautiful match last night between you and Rollins and you fought the United States champion and I respect that, i respect that you gave Owens a chance and Cesaro and Neville and I respect that I've been a fan for so many years. As good as you are, I could not see you tying his record against Seth Rollins. I couldn't see it happening. And I understand and I apologize for not seeing it through, but I just...
John Cena: "Now what do we have? We have the World Championship and the United States championship in the hands of the authority. The one group that doesn't there on the WWE Universe that just does what is best for business."
Jon Stewart: "What a great opportunity for you to win it back and to win back the beautiful people of Brooklyn with your fighting skills you can win it back. This is your moment. This is your moment. I almost feel like singing this is your moment."
John Cena: "I can win it back."
Jon Stewart: "We can..."
John Cena: "With a moment kind of like the moment you had last night?"
Jon Stewart: "It was my moment."
John Cena: "You ran out and did what you felt you had to do."
Jon Stewart: "I had to do it."
John Cena: "I understand that."
Jon Stewart: "I appreciate that."
John Cena: "So I know you're going to understand this because right now, I'm just going to do what I got to do."
Then Cena threw Jon Stewart in the A.A. and dropped him. (That's something I never thought I'd write.)
