Celebrating a 20-year Anniversary

Most of the show’s first two hours focused on John Cena, delivering a classic promo to all his fans. John, with his charisma and presence, talked about his connection to all the supporters of WWE.

Throughout the show, clips and videos of John’s career were being played. However, in the middle of the show, a quick segment was shown wherein John Cena was backstage. He was talking to Ezekiel, one of the newer faces on the WWE Roster, and giving parting advice and words.

During this lighthearted conversation, another younger wrestler, Theory, suddenly interrupted. The theory then began talking and boasting about his own success right in front of John’s face. He had gloated that he had achieved success earlier than John and that John was an “old man wearing jorts”. After his rant, Theory then approaches for a selfie, to which Cena walks out on, leaving Theory angry. This may possibly be a teaser of an eventual John Cena and Theory feud in the future.

Later on, after the previous segment, Vince McMahon the chairman of the promotion walked out onto the stage. He introduced John Cena into the ring while the entire WWE Locker room stood on the sideline. It is here that John shared his heartfelt message. In classic John Cena fashion, he is able to work for the crowd once again to loud cheers and applause.

To watch his emotional message, you may check out the recap on the official WWE YouTube Channel.
