John Cena is unleashing his new finisher... against ALL IN

He began teasing it on Twitter last week...

At that time, it was impossible to tell (a) if Cena was just joking or (b) where in the sequence of diving shoulderblock, sitout hip toss, side-release spinout powerbomb, Five Knuckle Shuffle, Attitude Adjustment this new “move of doom” would fall.

As such, I noted the date, but didn’t think too much of it. Again, this could all just be noted internet weird-o John Cena being an internet weird-o.

But then, WWE released this video of Cena from Jackie Chan’s training facility in Tianjin, China, where he recognizing the declining impact of the AA and reveals it will be a new finisher he’ll break out in Shanghai:

“I couldn’t think of a better way to show my appreciation for China, Chinese people and Chinese culture than to debut what I think is a finishing move that will provide me much victory in Shanghai on Sept. 1.”

New Cena finisher and Ronda Rousey?!?! There go ALL IN’s viewers... in Shanghai, anyway.
