Backstage News On John Cena Putting Over Bray Wyatt On SmackDown

Bray Wyatt defied the odds this past weekend at Elimination Chamber and captured his first WWE Championship. In doing so, he ended John Cena’s historic reign. The 16-time champion had a chance to make history once again on SmackDown Live in a triple threat title match also involving AJ Styles. Unfortunately, he came up short and Wyatt retained by pinning Cena. According to WWE legend Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, John Cena personally insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over on SmackDown.

Waltman was backstage at Tuesday’s SmackDown from Anaheim, California and said:

“I’m not sure what the finish was supposed to be for the match last night. But I know this for a fact, that John Cena insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over again last night, insisted on it. That’s not just a rumor.”
