When John Cena returned to the WWE network after a lengthy hiatus, he came right back to the top of the card. Cena’s first match back, after a break to make movies, was against AJ Styles at the 2017 Royal Rumble. That match saw Cena equal Ric Flair’s record of 16 world championship titles. Cena’s hold on the title did not last for long, he lost it to Bray Wyatt at the Elimination Chamber just two-weeks later.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, some in the WWE universe believed that Cena was only given such a high-profile match because of his connections to the McMahon family through Nikki Bella. SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan is Bella’s step-father. To be fair, Cena and Bella didn’t exactly receive top-billing at WrestleMania 33.
