Live Arena Segment: John Cena, Singing Kids & The Wyatt Family
This week’s show opens up with a video package showcasing what has been going down in the John Cena vs. Wyatt Family program. After that, we shoot live into the arena where a steel cage is lowered over the ring as Michael Cole promotes Sunday’s Extreme Rules cage match between Cena and Wyatt.
From there, John Cena’s theme music hits and the leader of the Ce-Nation makes his way to the ring. He enters the ring, where the cage is covering the ring. He gets on the mic and says “why” over and over again. He’s serious tonight, folks! He asks why he deserved the fans to vote on the WWE App last week to vote for him to fight all three members of The Wyatt Family. The fans respond by chanting “you suck” at him.
Cena says he heard once that you live long enough to eventually become a villain. He talks about being drafted to RAW in St. Louis (where RAW is tonight) years ago. He says a lot of things have changed since then. He mentions that he’s never abandoned the fans and again asks why they fed him to the lions last week. He asks why they’re supporting Bray Wyatt. He says he knows he’ll eventually have to step aside and mentions how he sees greatness in some of the up-and-comers, and mentions some top names. He even mentions some NXT guys that he feels will be big, such as Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn.
John explains that he’s here tonight to inform us that Bray Wyatt is a dangerous man. He says when he speaks it’s beautiful, but his heart is cold. He says this Sunday at Extreme Rules he’ll be standing in a steel cage, just like he is right now. He says we don’t understand it yet. He says if he escapes this cage this Sunday, so will his message and he will continue to corrupt and continue to manipulate. He says it won’t be long before it’s Bray Wyatt versus the world and the world doesn’t stand a chance.
As he continues to speak, The Wyatt Family cut-in happens. We hear a little kid singing “he’s got the whole world” as Cena looks nervous and confused. The lights were off during the singing, as the third verse hits, the lights come back on and we see a whole chorus of kids smiling and continuing to sing the full song on the top of the stage, all wearing black, by the way. The lights go out again and then we hear Bray Wyatt singing. He comes out on stage with his latern, accompanied by Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. He asks the children to sing with him. They all sing “he’s got the whole world” together as they all, children included, make their way to the caged-ring. Bray adds “the whole Ce-Nation” and “the big bad monster” in his hands remix to the song, sung by himself and the children.
Bray sits down in his rocking chair at ringside and the lights go out. When they come back on, he’s rocking back-and-forth, and now the children all have Wyatt Family style sheep masks on and they’re surrounding the ring. All except one, who is also wearing a sheep mask like the rest, but is sitting on Bray’s lap in the rocking chair. Bray starts laughing. He says, “can’t you hear them, John” and continues laughing. The Wyatt Family cut-in happens again as we head to commercial.
