Best: Damn You, John Cena!
Let’s pour one out for R-Truth’s United States Championship reign, which vanished for most of February before returning for two glorious weeks and ending. Last week, we were introduced to the idea of John Cena being R-Truth’s “childhood idol,” which is hilarious, because he’s six years younger than Truth. It also gave us, “damn, he brave,” which is one of those one-time pro wrestling phrases like, “I’m sorry, I love you,” that’ll never stop being quotable.
This week, Truth is frustrated to realize he has to do the United States Open Challenge every week, and even tries to skip it when “Mrs. Sexy Gloves” Lacey Evans does her bi-weekly senility wander. The best bit is probably him trying to understand the “you can’t see me” catchphrase, since he sees him everywhere from his “John Cena bed sheets” to “a movie about a car that was also a alien robot.” “John Cena showed up there, too!”
I’m happy that Samoa Joe finally won a championship on the main roster, but it better not cut into this R-Truth comedic renaissance.
