Welcome to the latest WWE News Roundup. In today’s edition, we’ll look at topics about John Cena and Alexa Bliss, among other significant names.
Cena recently appeared in a high-profile episode of SmackDown. While many saw what the WWE legend did on screen, he was also part of a newsworthy moment after the show went off the air.
In other news, there has lately been talk about talents departing the company. Two more stars have joined that list of names, as their contracts expired not too long ago.
Without further ado, let’s get started with today’s Roundup:
#5 John Cena hugs Rey Mysterio
John Cena was again at odds with The Bloodline on the latest episode of WWE SmackDown. Interestingly, the conflict set up a much-awaited feud this time, as LA Knight and the returning Roman Reigns crossed paths.
After the episode, Cena was spotted sharing a heartwarming moment with another legend. On his way to the backstage area, the Hollywood star met Rey Mysterio, and they hugged each other.
You can see how the former rivals interacted below:
