Last Night on Raw we saw John Cena come out for what has become his usual weekly open challenge that he does were he defends the United States Champion against a random challenger. Thus far the likes of Neville, Stardust, Sami Zayn, Dean Ambrose, and King Barrett have accepted the challenge just to name a few past challengers. Also this open challenge concept has added an aura of mystery that Raw hasn't had in a while, because you don't know who is going to accept the challenge.
This week we were shocked when the current NXT World Champion Kevin Owens accepted John's open challenge leading many to think Owens was going to be facing Cena. However, what did happen was Cena & Owens traded words on the microphone showing the skills both men have on the microphone. Before the end of the segment Kevin Owens made by far the most impactful debut on WWE TV in recent memory when took down the US Champion. You don't believe just watch:
Kevin's debut on Raw showed just a glimpse of the talent that WWE has in NXT and why Kevin is the NXT World Champion. Also Kevin Owens not only will face Sami Zayn in the Rematch between the two for the NXT World title this Wednesday Night on the WWE Network, but also on May 31st at Elimination Chamber Kevin Owens will face John Cena in his Main Roster PPV Debut match. To me that honestly shows just how much faith WWE has in Kevin Owens to put him against Cena on PPV.
