John Cena’s final appearance on SmackDown Live for a while was memorable.
It’s no secret that Cena is set to move from the SmackDown brand to the Raw brand shortly. He is scheduled for his first Raw pay-per-view since the Draft last year with WWE No Mercy at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, September 24th. In regards to when he will stop working SmackDown TV events, Tuesday night was it as he is scheduled to appear on the Raw after SummerSlam on August 21st.
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, WWE booked another dream match involving Cena as he wrestled WWE Champion Jinder Mahal in the main event. The finish of the match saw Baron Corbin interfere and attack the former WWE Champion. As a result of the attack, Cena picked up the disqualification victory.
Corbin then attempted to cash-in his Money in the Bank contract on Mahal. Due to a distraction from Cena, Mahal was able to roll-up Corbin for the win and retained his WWE Championship.
The WWE Universe was buzzing online due to the fact that other than Corbin’s failed cash-in attempt, there was a rude member of the WWE fanbase. There was a fan at ringside that gave Cena the middle finger. It’s unknown whether she is a die-hard Corbin fan or simply just hates Cena. Either way, she wasn’t too pleased with what she witnessed. Here is the video:
