If there is one man on the WWE roster today that truly is the human incarnation of the word loyalty, that would be John Cena.
Before I start telling you anything let me admit two things honestly;
1. I don't say that the match between Rollins and Cena is the greatest WWE match.
2. I don't say that John did the unthinkable.
But let me tell you something better than this. I respect all those who shout 'Let's go Cena' and I also agree with people who shout 'Cena sucks'. It doesn't matter which side you are on but one thing is for sure - John loves this business better than most others.

When the world is busy anticipating when Cena would get his next title shot, this man is trying hard to retain the US title. Do you thing he is mad? Selfish? Great? It's left to your own imagination. Things appear the way you look at them.
So, what's so special about the US title? Is it really that important to Cena? To be honest, it's just Cena's way of giving back what he received over the years. The US Championship has lost its luster and WWE needed someone who could elevate the pride of the title.
They tried Sheamus, Ambrose and Rusev but things really didn't work for them. That's the reason why Cena was brought into the picture and John met the expectations.
Week after week, John went out and invited Superstars to take part in the 'John Cena US title Open Challenge'. This brought out guys like Cesaro, Neville, Kevin Owens, Stardust and many others into the limelight and gave them a platform to expose their skills.
Who better than John Cena can you ask for as an opponent?
Back to his roots
All this being said, you could still ask me is he the only guy who can do it? Just imagine someone else in his place.
Do you really think that any other Superstar would agree to it? This looks really fitting when you look at a man who has been a 15-time world Champion and he comes back to the point where he started his journey.
You name any wrestler and you will find out why they don't do it. One classic example is this weekend's Night of Champions PPV.
Seth Rollins really didn't give a damn about losing the US title just after holding it for 28 days. Had he not wanted it, the storylines would have been different. I don't say Cena is the ideal man, but he is the only man who could get the job done here.
Whether you like it or not, whether you accept it or not, this guy deserves more credit than anyone on the roster today.
The five-time US Champion doesn't just work for himself but has a lion's share in the success of the company today. Finally, all I got to say is, "The Champ is here" and will be a Champ forever in the hearts of true wrestling fans.
Hustle. Loyalty. Respect. That's his way of life.
