Note On Cena/Fan Last Night, Orton/Benoit, SSlam

Ryan Clark


We had tons of readers send us word last night that in a WWE.com article about Randy Orton capturing the World Heavyweight Title at SummerSlam 2004, any mention of Chris Benoit was completely ignored including any photos of Benoit and Orton in the match. Thanks to everyone who sent that note in.

Dakota sent this in: I was the fan with the “If Cena Wins We Riot” and I would like to tell you exactly what happened. First of all my name is Dakota, I’m a resident of New Jersey for all of my life and I’m fifteen years old. I’m a huge Randy Orton fan, I have been since I was about Ten. So naturally I had signs against Cena and big letters spelling out ORTON. So after the match my friend and I were not all to happy that Cena retained. After all the hype of a big title change in New Jersey, I was expecting to see Orton win. But after the match after Cena celebrated my friend and I held out our Signs. He took mine back to the ring showed it around and dropped it at the center of the ring as if he was saying I’m right here! As the security stopped the fans from hopping the barriers, bottles and other items flew into the ring. As Cena left, he grabbed my sign, handed it to me and shrugged like he was saying, “Maybe next time, ya never know.” With that I now have a lot of respect for John Cena and this is exactly what we said to one another. He said, “there’s always next time” and I said “I’m a huge Orton fan and I gotta stick by my favorites ya know” and he said “Yeah I can respect that.” During this time I had been holding out my hand and he finally gave me a handshake along with my friend. That is exactly what happened after the cameras went off. I’m proud to say that I got a brief segment with John Cena and I’ve got a lot of respect for him.
