John Cena & Bray Wyatt
John Cena comes out for an interview with Cole. Cole tells us how Wyatt said Cena’s previous WrestleMania 30 win over Wyatt led to the birth of The Fiend. Cena says he is not sure how to respond to people who puts him as the reason for their failure. He says Wyatt got lazy and is his own biggest enemy. Cena then counts all his big losses of his carrier and wonders why people never say that he got buried.
Cole asks why Cena would antagonize Wyatt after saying what he did. Cena says he just accepted a challenge from Wyatt. Cena says WWE needs to invest in its future and Wyatt is not the future. Cena namedrops Drew McIntyre, Matt Riddle, Tommaso Ciampa, Rhea Ripley, and others as the future. Cena says WWE should invest in those talents and not give 5th and 6th chances to people who blame him when times get hard.
Cena says he accepted challenge from the Fiend and the match won’t be for stealing the show. It will be a brutal, gruesome and uncomfortable match which will end the hype of the most over-hyped and over-privileged Superstar in existence.
We hear Wyatt laughing from the empty seats now. Wyatt has a mic and he hops over the barrier. Wyatt is glad Cena is here, even though he’s saying mean and hateful stuff about Wyatt. Wyatt enters the ring now and says it’s good to see Cena. Look at Cena, he’s doing great now, a big movie star in Hollywood, and still has big muscles, a great girlfriend. Wyatt says most can’t imagine what it would be like to be Cena for one day. Wyatt says Cena has him all wrong. Wyatt says he’s not sick, Cena is. He knows why Cena came here and he knows Cena doesn’t really give a damn about the future.
Wyatt says Cena doesn’t care who he has to squash or bury on his way, he just wants the spotlight. Wyatt says Cena is addicted to the spotlight. Wyatt says 6 years ago Cena took something from him. He thought about it so much it drove him crazy. Wyatt says the voices in his head never stopped and then something magical happened. He stopped fighting the voices one day and then started listening to them. They took his crooked little world and turned it into a majestic Fun House.
Wyatt says Cena broke him and The Fiend put him back together, and at WrestleMania 36 it’s going to be a slaughter, Cena just doesn’t know it yet. Wyatt is in Cena’s face now. Let me in, John. The screen flashes with The Fiend’s presence as Wyatt lets out a quick laugh. The screen goes black now as the familiar Wyatt echoes out over the arena. The first-ever SmackDown on FOX from the WWE Performance Center goes off the air.
