John Cena's 50 greatest matches

#31 John Cena vs. Edge vs. Big Show: The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania (April 5, 2009)

The sight of dozens of John Cena lookalikes marching to the ring before this Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship Match at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania sent a message to WWE fans that this bout was going to be something special. (WATCH)

With The Rated-R Superstar’s WWE Title up for grabs, Cena was not necessarily the focus of the match. A bizarre love triangle between Edge, The World’s Largest Athlete and Vickie Guerrero had taken center stage in the heated buildup to this match, but Cena grabbed the spotlight at the end of the bout. In a moment which has become one of the defining images of the 10-time WWE Champion’s career, Cena hoisted the combined 600-plus pounds of both Edge and Big Show onto his shoulders en route to victory. Not since Ken Patera bent a nail with his thumb has a display of power been so impressive.
