World Heavyweight Champion John Cena def. The Real Americans

Sorry, Zeb-itarians, John Cena still won’t be joining The Real Americans’ movement anytime soon. Despite Zeb Colter’s attempts to conscript The Champ into his ranks alongside Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro, the Cenation leader held strong in both principle and practice by defeating Colter’s boys in a Handicap Match in Manchester. Swagger & Cesaro were welcomed about as well as one might expect from the international crowd, though the reception did nothing to slow the Americans’ momentum in the opening moments.

Despite a counter of the Cesaro swing into an attempted STF, the Americans kept Cena on his heels with a slew of strategic tags and well-honed team maneuvers. (The unwelcome arrival of Alberto Del Rio on commentary also did The Champ’s focus no favors.) It was quick timing that saved the day when Cena sprung a quick-strike STF on Swagger for the tapout win … though Del Rio made The Champ pay by locking in the Cross Armbreaker in the crux of a steel chair, punishing Cena’s surgically repaired arm until Big E Langston stormed to the rescue.
