Notes On John Cena, The Rock, RAW, SD!, ECW, More

Ryan Clark


John Cena appeared at the Nickelodeon UK Kids’ Choice Awards which was taped at the ExCel and aired this morning on Nickelodeon in the United Kingdom. Cena was nominated for an award in Best Sportsperson category however the award went to LA Galaxy star David Beckham who wasn’t present for the occasion. When the video of Beckham started on the big screen, Cena interrupted on stage to a large scream from the thousands of kids in attendance. Cena was about to start crying for not winning the award and told the hosts that he will stay on the stage and will hold his breath until he wins an award. After a few they told him that they will give him an award for the ‘most injured wrestler’. Cena – who had his arm in a sling – ran backstage after the Slime Squad interrupted and came on stage to slime the audience. (Thanks to Colin Vassallo)

The Smackdown! show in Glasgow at the Braehead Arena is already sold out.

Just a note for viewers in the United Kingdom that tonight’s Cyber Sunday and tomorrow’s live Monday Night RAW will be airing one hour prior than usual because of the daylight savings time change in Europe. Cyber Sunday will air on Sky Sports 1 starting at Midnight GMT while RAW will air on Sky Sports 3 tomorrow starting at 1AM GMT. This is only for one week as the United States move back their clocks an hour next weekend. (Thanks to Colin Vassallo)
