This past Monday night on RAW, the show opened up with a promo from the returning John Cena, who misses the show last week when it was announced that he would be facing Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam while he was filming his latest movie. During the promo, of course, Paul Heyman came out to interrupt, and what happened from there was pure magic.
While there are some people who pick on John Cena just for the sake of picking on him, the smart people were able to realize that he cut one hell of a promo to start the show on Monday and kick the feud off with Lesnar. And if you don’t believe yours truly, then why don’t you take a look at what Stone Cold Steve Austin had to say.

Now of course, Heyman’s delivery did bring out some more fire from Cena, but that’s the sign of a good wrestling angle. When one person brings the best out in the other, then you know you have something special and that’s what happened on Monday night.
And while Brock will be the one in the ring with Cena come August 17, we all know that Heyman is just as big a part of this as Cena or Lesnar are.
Still, well done by both men on Monday night.
