In Ring Segment: John Cena
Cena does the robot on the ramp before running to the ring. Cena points out how split the crowd is tonight. Cena says the WWE ring provides us moments. Last week there was a moment. A trip to the SummerSlam title match was on the line. “Super” Cena squared off with the “King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura. Cena says he found out last week Nakamura isn’t scared of anything. The crowd chants “Nakamura”. Cena says for a long time he wonders why the crowd chanted that. Now Cena knows it’s because Nakamura hits hard. Really hard. Last week Cena was in the ring doing his thing. He knew he was going to go on to face Jinder Mahal. Then all of the sudden the referee was raising Nakamura’s hand. Then Cena realized he lost. No shenanigans, or anything, he just lost. Cena did the only thing he could do: he dusted himself off and shook the hand of the man who is on the path to become a champion.
Baron Corbin’s music hits and Corbin comes out on the stage. Corbin says no one cares about Cena or the handshake from last week. Corbin is Mr. Money in the Bank which means he can do whatever he wants. Cena needs to respect Corbin, not Nakamura. Corbin says he is going to make Cena the past… whatever that means. Cena says he is gonna tell it like it is. Cena calls Corbin a Skinny-fat, loud mouth, overrated dumpster fire, just like the sign in the crowd says. Cena says if Corbin wants to dance he can come to the ring. If Corbin does, Cena may just put Corbin through another table. Corbin says why would he do that when he has the MITB contract? Corbin says Cena has nothing he needs. Cena can take his respect and shove it. All Corbin wants is the WWE championship. Cena just isn’t worth his time. Corbin tries to leave but Daniel Bryan comes out on the stage. Bryan tells Corbin that he will face Cena at SummerSlam.
