Wow, that was embarrassing. John Cena promised the world that he would deliver the final knockout blow to The Rock on RAW yesterday. Good gracious, he totally tanked. Instead of addressing Rocky in “rap”, Cena said he’d address him in “Hip-Hop”. What did we learn? “Rap” > “Hip-Hop” and The Rock > John Cena.
All of Cena’s jokes fell flat and the crowd gave it to him. The star of the promo, though, was The Miz who was able to shift the attention to himself because, in case you didn’t know, the actual match at WrestleMania is between The Miz and John Cena. The Miz delivered a money promo and even hit The People’s Elbow on Cena. Actually, this probably saves Cena from another embarrassment at the hands of The Rock. Watch the video, but be warned, it’s not pretty.
Earlier in the show, Stone Cold Steve Austin came back and was the highlight of the night while barely saying a word. There’s a lot of beer and Stunners going around. Michael Cole’s reaction was priceless, too.
