The Dr. of Thuganomics returns as John Cena interrupts Elias’ performance

The Dr. of Thuganomics returns as John Cena interrupts Elias’ performance

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Elias was supposed to have the most epic music performance on The Grandest Stage of Them All, but John Cena once again rained on the singer’s WrestleMania parade.

In front of a capacity crowd of 82,265 at MetLife Stadium, Elias started his performance a little differently. Before The Living Truth showcased his musical talents in the ring, a video showing Elias played on the Titantron, highlighting the songsmith’s rhythmic ability on the drums and piano. Meanwhile, in the center of the ring, Elias strummed alongside himself on the Tron.

However, Elias’ concert was cut short before it really got going. Just as he prepared to deliver his true first number, Elias was interrupted by footage of legendary New York Yankees slugger Babe Ruth calling his shot.

Suddenly, MetLife Stadium erupted as John Cena made his way to the ring — but it wasn’t the John Cena everyone expected. Instead, the familiar strings of “Basic Thuganomics” heralded the arrival of The Doctor of Thuganomics himself. Decked out in a throwback Yankees jersey with his classic chain and sideways cap, Cena delivered a vintage rhyming rant complete with altered images of Elias to match the insults hurled at him.

Fed up with Cena’s throwback, Elias removed his jacket ready for a fight. Unfortunately, he was met with The Doctor of Thuganomics’ brass knuckles before getting the Five-Knuckle Shuffle and the ultimate retro rewind from Cena – The F-U. Word life.
