X-Pac: John Cena insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over on SmackDown Live this week

When Bray Wyatt won the WWE world championship at Elimination Chamber this past Sunday night in Phoenix, he did so after pinning the champion going into the match, John Cena, as well as AJ Styles. The very next episode of SmackDown Live saw Cena invoke his rematch clause, with Styles getting added to the match to make it a triple threat. Once again, Wyatt pinned Cena, this time to retain his title.

It was Cena himself who insisted upon this.

That’s according to X-Pac, who was visiting backstage that night, on the latest episode of his show on AfterBuzz TV, X-Pac 12360:

"I'm not sure what the finish was supposed to be for the match ... But I know this for a fact, that John Cena insisted on putting Bray Wyatt over again ... insisted on it. That's not just a rumor."

Pinning Cena to both win and defend the WWE world title on consecutive shows is one hell of a way to get over. As the fans at the arena said in the chants they showered Wyatt with, he deserves it.
