Right from the outset, Uso and Sikoa dominated, concentrating their offensive on Cena and effectively cutting him off from Knight. However, Cena turned the tide when he defended against a splash attempt from Sikoa, creating an opportunity to tag in Knight.
The contest then spiraled into a frenzy. With all competitors clashing, Jimmy managed an Uso Splash on Cena, while Solo countered Knight with a Samoan Drop. But Knight rallied, delivering powerful blows to both adversaries.
The climax witnessed Knight executing a Superplex on Uso from the turnbuckle, with Cena capitalizing with his signature Five Knuckle Shuffle. Knight then sealed the victory with the Blunt Force Trauma maneuver.
John Cena Snaps a Five-Year Winless Run Not only did the win offer Cena some vindication against The Bloodline, but it also terminated a winless streak dating back to 2018. This triumph represents his inaugural win at a Premium Live Event since his outing at that year’s Super ShowDown.
During that event, Cena collaborated with Bobby Lashley, outclassing Elias and Kevin Owens. Following this, Cena tasted defeat in his subsequent three PLE outings: a peculiar loss to Bray Wyatt in the Firefly Fun House match at WrestleMania 36, a setback to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam 2021 marking Reigns’ Universal Championship anniversary, and a more recent defeat to Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39, where Theory defended the United States Title.
However, Cena’s resurgence at Fastlane suggests we’ll be witnessing more of him in the near future. He’s slated for an appearance at Crown Jewel on November 4th. While his adversary for the Saudi Arabia event remains under wraps, it’s certain he won’t be facing Roman Reigns again.
