AJ Styles destroys John Cena in exceptional promo

Football News

Ever since entering the WWE after leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling, AJ Styles has been a bit underwhelming.

The former TNA, Ring of Honor and NJPW star managed to enter the Royal Rumble at number three and only eliminate two superstars before being thrown out of the ring by Kevin Owens. He also lost to Chris Jericho at his first ever WrestleMania as well as failing twice as he tried to beat Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship - eating a pin on both occasions.

However, Styles has now turned his attention away from Reigns and is instead in a program with the recently returned John Cena and seems like he is turning the corner.

The WWE newbie schooled Cena on Raw last night, calling the 15-time WWE Champion out for "burying" other superstars.

"Everybody who knows this place knows that once you wrestle John Cena and lose, it's time to get out your shovels because guys like you bury guys like me!"

As you can judge by Cena's reaction to the calling out from Styles, the big man was shocked with his eyes wide open and jaw nearly dropped.

That's because you never hear WWE stars using terms like buried anymore. It's more of a backstage/smarky term that insiders use when an up-and-coming talent - which in this case is AJ Styles - comes up against an established star like John Cena and has to be the one to lose, just so the bigger star can stay on top. 

Cena Goes Over

Think about some of Cena's recent big feuds. He lost to Kevin Owens once before beating the NXT Champion twice in a row to end their feud, beat Bray Wyatt when it mattered just as Wyatt was on the verge of becoming one of the WWE's biggest stars, and he beat Rusev at WrestleMania 31 to take the United States Championship off the up and coming heel.

Three young, rising stars in the WWE. Three feud-ending wins for Cena. What a shock.

People used to talk about Triple H being the biggest bury-er of young WWE talent, but Cena has picked up that shovel and run with it - making it his own in recent years.

John Cena always goes over, hopefully AJ Styles can change that. If not, we'll just have more LolCenaWins - and no WWE fan needs any more of that.
