14. 14 times in 10 years. That’s the official tally from Redditor BatNorris, who put together this handy compilation of every time John Cena’s been pinned cleanly in singles matches on WWE TV of any kind since 2007.
Relive such spectacular memories as “wow, they really put the Great Khali over Cena and the Undertaker,” or, “wow, he went two and a half years without taking a clean loss,” or, “I’m glad the Daniel Bryan match ends immediately after that clean pinfall and nothing happens afterward.”
Here’s the complete rundown, by year:
– Shawn Michaels (Raw, 2007)
– The Great Khali (Saturday Night’s Main Event, 2007)
– Triple H (Night Of Champions, 2008)
– Batista (SummerSlam, 2008)
– Big Show (Raw, 2009)
– Triple H (Raw, 2009)
– The Rock (WrestleMania, 2012)
– Daniel Bryan (SummerSlam, 2013)
– Brock Lesnar (SummerSlam, 2014)
– Kevin Owens (Elimination Chamber, 2015)
– Alberto Del Rio (Hell in a Cell, 2015)
– AJ Styles (SummerSlam, 2016)
– Dean Ambrose (Smackdown, 2016)
– Shinsuke Nakamura (Smackdown, 2017)
It’s interesting that 4 of 14 clean losses happened at SummerSlam, which I guess makes that Cena’s bad luck pay-per-view. It’s also somewhat appropriate that the only person to beat him cleanly twice in the past ten years is Triple H, and both of those happened before 2010. So it’s been seven years since someone beat Cena cleanly more than once. Sorry Kevin Owens, and Rusev, and Bray Wyatt, and everyone else. Don’t try wrestling him again, Nakamura, it won’t end well for you.
Okay, maybe it will.
