Twitter Reaction From John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt's Last Man Standing Match

Shares 0

John Cena beat Bray Wyatt in a Last Man Standing Match at WWE Payback on Sunday. The match was given a significant amount of time, featured interference from The Wyatt Family and The Usos and was fought all over the ringside area. The finish saw Cena hit the Attitude Adjustment on Wyatt through a box used to transport production equipment. Cena covered the box he put Wyatt through with another and got the 10 count to win the match.

Here's some reaction from around Twitter:

    The ending killed me, Cena has no clue how to sell getting his ass kicked, everytime he gets beat down he winds up making it look he just cut a promo and nothing else.

    • Taylor

      That’s the problem I had with the end as well. Cena arguably more of a beating than Wyatt did. Yet, he’s in perfect shape after hitting the AA, goes to the center stage to flash his wristbands, and even runs down to the ring. It makes it bad storytelling when the announce team is trying to sell what just happened as a brutal war, and only one of these individuals sells it as if it was a war.

        Cena was to busy trying to sell his merchandise to worry about telling a story…

        To be honest Cena’s didn’t take that bad of a beating. It wasn’t like the beating he took from Umaga in their epic LMS match. On that night Cena sold it very well.

          His rips took a beating. That senton bomb from the steps, that cross body through the barricade. Its the showing of his rips being targeted that he didn’t sell. and by lifting Wyatt up for the AA should of never happened because of the pressure to his rips. Because human body weight going to the shoulders, puts pressure on the rips. so all in all after the match he shown no effect.

        You bring up another great point – John Cena is the only person the commentary team actually put over all night. They spend the rest of the night arguing, trying to bury one another, making fun of everyone else in the ring… but as soon as John Cena wins, all three of them go on about how amazing he is.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Neither man sold anything the entire match. The throwing of the steps had me in hysterics because it was so unbelievable that someone could take a huge beating, then throw those ‘heavy steel steps’ with such force and then stand there like they’ve just been for a quick walk to the gas station.

      • Chris

        I’ll give him credit for always selling the supposed weight of the steps. He’ll act like they weigh 500 pounds, then Randy Orton will pick them like they’re a set of Legos.

        • Bob’s Diner

          The steps know better than to make any trouble with Orton, though. They’re probably worried he’ll bitch about them to management and get them fired.

  • Jason

    It goes to show you that John Cena cannot incapacitate his opponent so he cannot answer a 10 count. instead he cheats by using ducktape around the ankles with the legs around the turnpost in afew last man standing match twice to my knowledge, and now after hitting a AA through a box, he ended up putting something ontop of it to block the opening so his opponent cant make it to his feet FAIRLY. And of course the official allows all this to happen and still counts. Pfft Pathetic,

    • Adam

      Ahhhh, the official allows it because it’s scripted, you know that, right?

      • Jason

        Obviously. But what i’m saying it makes no damn sense. Over the years when it came to a last man standing match atleast the rules of incapacitate the opponent to the point of them not answering a 10 count applied without shortcuts. Scripting this for Cena to shortcut his way into wins of a last man standing lowers his already lowered credibility to the point of him hitting rock bottom. Oddly enough it happened at 2 wrestlemania’s straight LOL but all jokes aside, its painful to watch. especially since it was said that Cena took the most in this match and he walked away from it unscaved without selling. which tells one hell of a horrible story.

  • Splat

    Such a wasted opportunity for Bray Wyatt to be cemented as a main event guy.

  • Avalanchian

    Love reading the hate. Btw Wyatt isn’t even close to buried. But if he doesn’t feud with someone super popular it sure won’t help him.

  • David F

    I actually enjoyed this match the best out of Cena Bray feud but WWE dropped the ball by having Wyatt go under Cena at Wrestlemania. Cena should have done what was best for business and put over the younger talent at biggest show of the year. Glad this feud is over so Bray could move on to better feuds

  • LordVonHamburg

    All this crying about the match. Ok let’s be clear ,were you entertained , that’s all that matters. Selling beat downs , not winning the proper way , for gods sake it’s wrestling. I’ve been a fan for close to 50 yrs now. I don’t care if it’s scripted , I don’t care if someone SELLS a beating , all I want to do is be entertained. Now granted I do agree young talent needs to get pushed a little more and Bray is now mainstream. Let’s stop crying about selling and scripts and just enjoy the matches and the wrestlers as they are entertainment.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Selling a beating impacts my entertainment – if they can’t make the match believable, why should I care?

      Seriously, ask Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels if selling a beating was important to them
