Well that worked. Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, WWE celebrated the twenty year anniversary of John Cena in WWE. The show featured a series of tributes to Cena, as well as looks back at some of his most famous moments. Cena has had several of these over the years and they are worth looking at again. Now one of them is getting recreated in pretty awesome fashion.
WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has released a video of himself and his daughter Sophia recreating Cena’s debut promo from June 27, 2002. The original promo saw Kurt call out anyone in the back, with Cena answering, introducing himself, and slapping Kurt. The two went on to have a match with Kurt winning in Cena’s debut. Kurt said that his daughter asked him to recreate the promo.
This is pretty adorable. Check out the new and the old:
Opinion: What else is there to say about something like this? Kurt’s daughter is adorable and they got almost everything right here. It’s a fun, harmless deal (save for maybe Kurt getting slapped) that gets the whole thing almost perfectly (minor points off for the wrong Cena music) that made me smile more than once. Good for Kurt for having some fun with his daughter and paying a nice tribute to history as well.
What did you think of the video? What was Kurt and Cena’s best match together? Let us know in the comments below.
