WWE Smackdown: Ever since his return, John Cena has been giving a treat to his ardent fans by wrestling in dark matches. Tonight after WWE Smackdown went off the air, Cena yet again teamed up with The Mysterio’s to take on Roman Reigns and The Usos.
When Cena came out to the entrance ramp, he tipped his cap for the Smackdown Women’s Champion as she was leaving for backstage after a cold beatdown from Sasha Banks. Bianca responded to Cena’s humble gesture by nodding to the 16-time World Champion. The scene was a pious one as the WWE Universe in attendance really appreciated the gesture from the Leader of Cenation. Check the video below,

WWE Smackdown: John Cena and Mysterio’s defeated Roman Reigns & The Usos
As mentioned above, Cena was in action after Smackdown went off the air. He teamed up with Dominik & Rey Mysterio for the second time in two weeks (only in non-televised Dark matches) to take on the nefarious team of The Bloodline, i.e., Roman Reigns and The Usos. Cena and The Mysterio’s convincingly defeated the Bloodline courtesy of Cena hitting Jimmy Uso with an Attitude Adjustment and pinning him.
Since his return, this is Cena’s fourth non-televised match, but all have been tag-team bouts. He has fought twice on Smackdown, once in WWE Raw, teaming up with Riddle to defeat Mace & T-Bar & once in the WWE Live event at Pittsburgh.
