John Cena Assaulted After WWE SmackDown Return

The 16-time World Champion John Cena finally made his return to WWE and wrestled his first match of the year on the latest episode of Friday Night SmackDown. He and Kevin Owens took on the team of Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn in a tag team match this week. After the show went off Cena was brutally assaulted by The Bloodline.

The match was full of ups and downs as The Bloodline members managed to isolate The Prizefighter in the ring, and the 16-time Champ couldn’t get in the tag. In the final moments of the exhilarating matchup, both Cena and KO landed a five-knuckle shuffle on The Tribal Chief and Zayn. Cena then took Roman out of the picture with an AA, and Owens hit the Stunner on Sami for the win.

However, the celebrations did not last long for KO and Cena as the Bloodline landed an attack on them after the show went off air.

A video clip has emerged on social media which saw The Usos and Sami Zayn battering their opponents in a 3-on-2 assault. After the brutal attack, The Bloodline members stood up to pose amidst raucous boos from the fans in attendance.

As the attack continued, Ridge Holland and Butch of the Brawling Brutes, accompanied by Drew McIntyre, rushed out to make the save. After they drove out The Bloodline, John Cena got on the mic and shared a heartfelt message with the fans in Tampa. He mentioned that he had at least one match every year since he started back in 2002, and he did not intend to end his streak this year. He thanked everyone for a great run over the last 20 years. He said that 2022 had been a great year and that he hoped to make 2023 even better.
