  • Daniel Limsass

    Hope Lesnar doesn't lose any momentum after this lost

  • Abe

    the two jobbers are Heath Hatton and Ace Hawkins

  • Ian P.

    How does a guy like Ziggler lose after doing 2 matches during several PPVs last year and to a gimmick like Clay? Has his stock dropped?

    • hurrigame

      I'd imagine it has. Guess he's now relegated to trying to coax a match for Zack Ryder's Internet Championship. Serves him right for ripping off Billy Gunn & Mr. Perfect (poorly).

      • Ian P.

        I don't know if you can blame his gimmick totally on him. Creative and VKM has allowed him to do it. Humph… It's just a real head scratcher.

        • Chris

          Bring in ric flair! He would shape ziggler into the next nature boy! Whooooooo

  • Jonjayha

    Was there tonight. Cena is beyond a class act.

  • jonjayharris

    Was there tonight. Cena is a class act!!!! J

  • Jashaun

    He won’t because he will go on Monday night raw and complain that the wwe officials cheated him.

  • Ralphus

    Subpar card! Best match was Punk/Jericho but the whole card was predictable. And Lesnar appeared out of shape.

  • Jashaun

    That’s what I think Is gonna happen

  • Mr.Love

    Really lesnar loses in his debut match? Wow….

    • anandvkumar

      What else do you expect? Did you really think that vince would let Monday Night RAW to be renamed Monday Night RAW starrring Brock Lesnar?

      That too on someone who is back on a temporary basis :) and doesnt intend on staying here on the long run.

      • Abe

        Well he did just let him lose to the crock

        • Mr.Love

          And you have Brock lose all momentum from debuting back?

  • H.M.

    What ever happened to the 'take him out and put him on the shelf to build your momentum' thing?

  • Chris

    I was at the show and did not realize that aired.

  • LeBron James

    You guys are hoping Brock doesn't lose momentum? I'm shocked he doesn't get extreme heat for what he did to Cena, he worked Cena WAY to stiff, He MMA elbowed Cena extremely hard 3 times causing the cut on Cena's head. Then when he was doing submissions on Cena you could see him applying actual pressure. I felt real bad for Cena. Nothing he could do but be a professional and take the beating. Brock got away with murder tonight, that match was tough to watch. Props to Cena, he has a new fan in me. I respect the hell out of him now. He is completely over in my book.

    • Abe

      wrestling is a contact sport, people get hit, stop complaining

      • Abe

        lol @ these losers down voting my comment, go back to my little pony if you don't wanna watch a physical sport

      • Rob uk

        This completely wrong. Yes it’s a contact sport but wrestlers are trained to protect one another in the ring, not injury them. Problem is Lesner had this issue first time round.

        • Abe

          no, it is 100% right, protecting one another and what happened last night is on two completely different plains

          • Rob UK

            Sorry my friend… 100% wrong.

    • Jeremy

      @LeBronJames – I completely agree with you. I watched the match and those elbows given to Cena left me in shock, and to see the blood dripping onto the mat just made things worse. I was wondering if Brock was really trying to hurt Cena and I had no idea if that was supposed to happen. Honestly I was scared that it was not supposed to start the way it did but in the end it was a great match and you have to respect Cena to the fullest for acting extremely professional about the whole thing.

  • Ricky Valdez

    This is the reason I respect John cena, because the man has gone through the wars versus the best and win or loose has shined, people who boo cena are not real fans, if you have followed his career you know cena is the real deal.

    • JMM

      People have the right to boo whoever they want. I've watched John Cena put on some good matches. I've also watched him stink up arenas. After growing up watching HBK, Bret Hart, Steve Austin and then sticking with the WWE when they're putting world title's on the likes of The Great Khali and The Big Show I'm pretty sure I'm a real fan and if I choose to dislike John Cena being the constant focus of the WWE for the past 7 yearsdespite being very average I'm pretty sure I have that right.

  • http://www.phenomforever.com Mayank S

    And its pathetic that Lesnar lost in his (sort of) debut match when even Khali didn't….

  • Whammaster

    the world title matches and cean vs. lesner were amazing to watch. People always want certian things to happen, but as a fan watching the ppv. IT WAS AMAZING. Yet another ppv from Chicago that was fun to watch =D

  • John Strunbull

    Sheamus got booed his way out? Wow. YES! YES! YES!

  • http://www.phenomforever.com Mayank S

    Why does cena have to go on a vacation on a winning note? Can't believe the WWE did this. Most wrestlers usually take time off on a losing note, WWE builds some story around the injury, and then come back to take revenge. cena had no business winning this match – the WWE just didn't want him to lose 2 PPV matches in a row. They should have definitely made Lesnar win this one so that he could be built up like an unstoppable beast as he will be the main man on the show (apart from Punk) while cena is off and then cena could've returned later to take revenge and win. Terrible, stupid decision.

  • channesson

    I wonder how scared McMahon got when lesner went over the top rope the way he did.. I thought Cena and lesner did a awesome job.. With Cena leaving who is lesner going to face? Who is next for punk? What about Bryan and Sheamus?

  • Chowder

    Don’t worry, guys! Cena might be going away, but it’s just a ploy to make Super Cena a permanent worker! I can see through your disguise!

  • Ellen Brennan

    John Cena is the ultimate professional. Every "big business" in the world wishes they had an employee that could/would represent them the way Cena does the WWE. He deserves the win and has earned this "vacation".

  • AntGilroy

    The bump that leaner took over the rope was insane! One tough SOB

  • DNP

    Will never like cena he still sucks in my opinion and I’m glad he took a Beating of a life time hope Brock comes back and gives him more

    • patrick

      yea i think little brocky has found himself a home now, WWE will put up with his unprofessional style of wrestling because of his "look", and since he cant survive in MMA and no steroids so TNA wont take him so…….i guess little "big bad brock lesnar" has a home now, i jus wished the worthless bastard would take his wimpy voice and go to smackdown where i wouldnt have to watch him on monday nights

  • Levi Aldebol

    My question is who did Dolph Ziggler piss off to be jobbing to clowns like Brodus Clay? And has The Miz fallen so far into oblivion that his match with Santino was relegated to PRE SHOW!?!?

    • David king

      Somebody call my momma!!!!

  • http://www.wwe.com U CAN’T C ME

    Is cena going to b on RAW tonite?

  • Jg

    People r crazy for getting mad at cena winning.. He just jobbed at wm to the crock!!

  • SEAN

    WOW! Whomever is/was responsible for giving us all those/these results, THANK YOU! That must have been a lot of work.
    Much appriciated!!

  • ashi

    cena is a person who loves wwe wins or loose he will be who he is for ever and ever……. he always deserves the winning spot ….. he is the only guy who plays fair ………i do respect … JOHN CENA for what he is…..

    ………………………………………………………………………………………CENA >>>ROCKS……. !!!!!!

  • Peek

  • Peek
