On this date in WWE history: Kevin Federline pins John Cena on Monday Night Raw.

Kevin Federline shocked the world on this date in WWE history, pinning John Cena on Monday Night Raw. Yes, shocked the world.

Suddenly, a Snooki guest spot doesn't seem so bad.

Kevin Federline, perhaps best known for his short-lived marriage to former pop star Britney Spears, was invited to participate in a series of guest spots for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to help promote his hip-hop album Playing With Fire.

Well, unfortunately for K-Fed, WWE already had a whitebread rapper named John Cena and this town wasn't big enough for the two of them.

Federline got mixed up with "The Marine" and the angle came to a head on the Jan. 1, 2007, edition of Monday Night Raw, which saw the dueling rappers settle their differences in a No Disqualification bout. Fed-Ex won by pinfall after a run-in by Umaga.

See how it all went down:

How about it Cagesiders, a low point for the pro wrestling business? Or not as terrible as it could have been, under the circumstances?
