- John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis

A video package is shown hyping John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis. It shows the recent history between these two men, and the events that led up to this match.

The entrances:

John Laurinaitis is the first man to make his way out to the ring. He gets a good bit of heat on his way out, but the crowd really just seems like they don’t care about seeing him.

John Cena is out to the ring next, and he still gets a pretty big mixed reaction, mostly positive though, surprising since he’s going up against the biggest heel in the company right now.

The start:

Laurinaitis is wearing a pretty ridiculous bodysuit. Ace tries to run out of the ring and into the crowd immediately.

Mid-match notes:

Cena brings him back into the ring and take Johnny to the mat. Cena takes Ace into the corner and pulls up his shirt, chopping him to the chest and back. Cena shoulders Ace and goes for an airplane spin, putting Ace down on the mat. Ace gets up to his feet, and immediately falls out of the ring.

Cena grabs the ring bell and rings it repeatedly next to Ace’s head before taking the GM and slamming him head first into the announce table a couple of times. Cena borrows one of the Spanish announcer’s chairs and places him in the seat, putting the headphones on Ace. Cena puts on the headphones and it’s pretty corny as Cena pokes fun at Booker and Cole. Cena slams Ace into the announce table and then brings things back into the ring. Johnny holds out his hand, offering to shake with Cena.

Cena slams Johnny to the mat and hits a big elbow drop. Cena heads to the outside and grabs a mic. He grabs Johnny’s leg and says that he’s got an idea. He says he’s about to put Johnny in the STF. If he taps out, he’s fired. Cena says he’ll let go of the hold if Ace can last ten seconds and the crowd can help count along. Ace is able to last, and Cena breaks the hold. Cena says this is a good new bad new scenario, the good news is Johnny made it, but Cena is going to do it again. Cena locks it in again, and Ace makes it ten more seconds. Cena grabs the mic and says he’s exhausted and could use a drink. He goes over to grab a water, taking a swig before saying Ace looks parched too. He grabs a couple more bottles of water and brings them into the ring. Cena pours a bottle of water over Ace’s head, then another.

Cena pours a fourth bottle of water down Ace’s pant. Cena heads to the outside and goes under the ring to grab a fire extinguisher. Cena heads back into the ring and Ace sees it, begging off. Cena uses the fire extinguisher, blasting Johnny with it. Johnny rolls to the outside and Cena follows, slamming him into the barricade. He goes back to the timekeeper’s area and grabs a trashcan, dumping its contents on Johnny’s head.

Ace tries to leave through the crowd again, but Cena catches him. Ace catches Cena’s injured arm, and heads back into the ringside area. Ace slams Cena’s arm on the announcer’s table, then sends him into the ring steps. Johnny sends things back into the ring and he grabs a chair, hitting Cena repeatedly before going for a quick pin. Cena kicks out at two. Ace grabs the chair again, standing over Cena. Cena blocks a chair shot and hits Johnny with the chair instead. Cena uses the chair to drive down into Johnny’s face.

Ace hits Cena with a low blow then bails to the outside. Johnny crawls over the barricade to head out into the crowd again. Ace is crawling and limping away from the action, making his way away from the ring as quickly as possible. Cena is in the ring and doesn’t look to be following him. Ace heads out of the arena.

Ace is brought back into the arena by Big Show, who marches Laurinaitis back down to the ring with his hand around his throat. Show brings Ace back into the ring the hard way. Ace sits in the middle of the ring between Cena and Show. Ace tries to crawl out of the ring, but Show stands on Ace’s hand to stop him. Ace stands and Cena scares him right into Show’s grasp.

The finish:

Show pushes Ace into Cena, and Cena shoulders Ace. Show blasts Cena with a knockout punch and Cena goes down. Laurinaitis pins Cena, and this one is over.

Winner: John Laurinaitis

    Everything was good till the outcome of cena match. That killed it.

    • ATR

      Big Show F’d that one up! Damn Big Goof!

  • leonard

    Wow the ending with Big Show helping Ace , I would have never guessed that. Not!! Come one WWE Really …? So glad i didn't order over the limit, and Thank you Wrestling news world for providing such a good play by play of the PPV

  • JAE

    What the hell?? Cena LOST? I mean, I cannot stand Cena, but come on, John Laryngitis is a jackal! He's boring.
    Then again, it was too good to be true, seeing him leave WWE.

    Either way, I'm glad Christian is back! And with gold around his waist!

  • vivalajady

    is it just me or was this whole ppv predictable i mean i got all bar one match correct

    • James M>>>

      Well, if you missed one match, I would say the whole ppv wasn’t predictable.

  • pipebomb

    raise your hand high above your head and then smack yourself if you didnt see this outcome coming for the johhny ace/cena match

  • Ricky Valdez

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a match between Daniel Bryan and c m punk, WOW, I’m begging for an IRON MAN match between those two.

  • Chad

    And the award for the most predictable ending to a match goes to: Cena and Laurianitis!

  • AJG316

    The PPV was ok, just had a terrible ending

  • Kleck

    Was it worth $55.00?

  • Terra Ryzing

    Good to have Captain Charisma back. I kinda wish he was in the world title hunt instead of Del Rio.

  • Dangerous Lee

    Did Lilian botch the intro to the Camacho match?

  • Anthony

    The main event killed what was a solid pay per view, Christian coming back and winning the IC championship caught me off guard. The results of the other matches were obvious but they were good matches. Cena vs Laurinaitis was brutal to watch. Just a horrible match with the most obvious ending, I might have left early in the match to get a heads up on any potential traffic. Thats how bad and predictable the match was.

  • H.M.

    Come on guys, you can't expect WWE to attempt to swerve us from the obvious result ALL the time…even that in itself tends to get predictable. It was predictable, but it was effective. The event itself was pretty solid and both World Title matches were so amazing that they left me wanting so much more out of them. The ending to Punk/Bryan probably means we can expect a continuation of this rivalry and I for one am happy at that. As for the WHC match I prefer Sheamus' Crucifix Powerbomb – speaking of which, when was the last time he successfully hit it?

  • Thomas

    I am not surprised regarding the ending of the PPV. It'll put Show back as a heel and I think he actually works better as a heel personally. Glad to see Christian back. Him and Rhodes had a pretty decent match. And the whole think with Punk vs Bryant, tis far from over. He's gonna try and do something fancy and it'll probably be a submission match or something for the next PPV.

  • Charlene

    So preditable said it the minute show was fired and cena read the letter I turned round and said John GM will win because show will help him as he was ‘fired’ so ain’t really a wwe star. Such a fix you are letting people down wwe and making the whole show boring and predictable to watch

  • http://www.totalbarca.com/ Marc4barca

    Wow Punk has a very long title reign, something you don't see to often in the wwe these days. I can assure you though that his reign is over at the next one. there is no way wwe will let this go on any longer. right? right?

    Wait a minute, how long has it been since either cena or randy was world champion, something you don't see to often in wwe these days. that gonna change soon. right? right?

    The intercontinental championship actually looks like a worthy belt, good story lines, credible wrestlers holding it with the beautiful old look. something you don't see too often in the wwe these days. It's gonna become irrelevant again soon. right? right?

    What the hell, did we just see a women's match go 10 minutes and actually look like a good wrestling match. something you don't see to often in the wwe these days. That's not gonna happen again. right? right?

    Cena lost 2 of the last 3 ppv, yep definitely not gonna happen again, not even going to ask you.

  • bimo

    i have seen a long way back , the same ending from cmpunk, danielbryan match, with undertaker and kurtangle. undertaker gone for a last ride and kurt angle stops and locks undertaker’s arm into some hold and undertaker taps at the same time ref pins three against kurt

    • BOB

      It happens alot in wrestling its booking 101

  • Higgins

    Isn’t the next ppv no way out? Or is it the submission match ppv?

    • TCB

      No Way Out I believe.

  • The Savior of wrestling

    I predicted show would b involved somehow but I think that waz the best way he’s better heel he gonna b laurinightus’ goon yes yes yes.

    • http://google Connie Troia

      I called it Big Show was not really fired good storyline been watching for so long I should be a writer, Laurinitis looks like he’s with wwe for longer. No No No!!!!!

  • BOB

    I kind of sense they will do a shawn micheals/ JBL thing with the Big Show and big Johnny….

    Weird start to the PPV and let down of a end….Im betting they let CM/ BD go last…

    Why was the MIZ in the battle royal if he had a match? there was no BC so lets say The Miz did win that would have been 3 matches in one night, Stupid booking.

  • Mastermind

    Ridiculous outcome of main event. Everyone knew that big show will interfere.

    It would have been better if they dont add stipulation into match or

    stipulation should have been that johnnys boys i.e. Otunga, brock … Should have been banned

  • Bops

    It’s a reach, but I was hoping for a Laurinaitis loss (with or without Show’s involvement). Thus resulting in Laurinaitis transitioning into a manager role for Tensai and others. I’m pretty bored with the “abuse of power” storyline. It’s just not realistic. A real-life company wouldn’t allow it.

    • H.M.

      Agree completely.

  • Bops

    But overall, I loved this pay-per-view. The Cena/Laurinaitis match was painful though. Reminded me of the Bret Hart/Mr. McMahon from Wrestlemania. And I’m a big Bret fan!!

  • Lenny

    I wonder of Vince Russo is back as a wwe writer…

  • Anon313

    That ending with show helping johnny could lead into big show vs. lesnar in the future i think

  • A.C.

    I'm very curious to see what is going to happen on Raw tonight. If John Cena doesn't go anti-hero and deal with Big Johnny the same way Stone Cold dealt with Mr. McMahon – anybody remember him either Stone Cold Stunners in the ring or a car full of cement? If Cena doesn't go that route, and/or HHH and Stephanie decide to just let ol' Johnny Ace run wild and unchecked, WWE is going to become a total joke. Doink The Clown would be a better GM.

  • Me.

    And the E wonders why PPV buys are plummeting…
