NXT Heavyweight Champion Kevin Owens made his WWE main roster debut a few weeks ago but his first match didn't come until tonight at the Elimination Chamber event at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, against US Champion John Cena.
One hell of a debut match, eh? Even if neither title was on the line.
This was awesome.
And he won.
The atmosphere in the arena was electric, this despite the crowd being dead for the first few matches. Both guys broke out the big guns to pay them off too, with Owens getting all his stuff in while Cena worked his usual come-from-behind babyface gimmick.
Only this time, those odds were too long to overcome.
Oh yes, Kevin Owens pinned John Cena clean in the middle of the ring. It actually happened. They actually went through with it. Not only that, but Owens cut a promo on him afterward, giving him some "veteran advice" that his time is up and Owens' time is now.
