Cena and Brock enter into battle

Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena Extreme Rules 2012 results

It was starting to look like the worst month in the career of the jocular, ever-triumphant John Cena. Spinning out of a devastating defeat on The Grandest Stage of Them All to The Rock, the Cenation leader succumbed to the ruthless aggression of a past foe just 24 hours after WrestleMania XXVIII. Brock Lesnar reemerged in WWE after an eight-year hiatus on April 2 and delivered an F-5 that sent all of WWE into a tailspin. (WATCH) The ensuing weeks were progressively worse for Cena as he left Raw wounded, embarrassed and beaten.

And yet, John Cena signed the contract for an anything-goes encounter with an unpredictable individual who returned simply for fame and glory, if not to see his namesake on the marquee of Monday Night Raw.

Wholly committed to WWE – even against the harshly audible disapproval of the crowd around him in Chicago – Cena charged into battle not just for himself, but for an entire universe. Reminiscent of his last pay-per-view bout in the Allstate Arena against red-hot hometown hero CM Punk at Money in the Bank, the 10-time WWE Champion was met by deafening jeers against the callous goliath.

Fueled perhaps by the “Cutting Edge” pep talk from The Rated-R Superstar on Raw SuperShow (WATCH) or maybe by the pair of F-5s (and flagrant low blow) sustained at the hands of Lesnar, Cena arrived in the Windy City without the fear Brock expected he’d instilled. With Edge’s words resonating on the other side of his tight and high fade, Cena’s mind was focused the former UFC champion.
