This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live featured a big dream match as John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura faced off in the main event. Cena and Nakamura battled for the right to challenge Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam, and in the end it was Nakamura who ended up getting the victory.
Near the end of the match, Shinsuke Nakamura picked John Cena up and hit him with a suplex. The move looked pretty brutal as Cena fell backward and landed right on his neck. Shinsuke then followed up wth a Kinshasa and he pinned John Cena clean to earn the title shot.
Cena’s rough landing has been a hot topic on social media ever since, and it seems that Shinsuke felt bad about the spot because he looked at John Cena after the match and said, “I’m sorry.” However, Cena walked away just fine, and he responded to Nakamura by saying, “don’t be sorry.”
You can check out a clip of the exchange below.

John Cena was recently cast in a lead role in the upcoming Transformers spinoff “Bumblebee” and Kevin Owens took to Twitter to comment on his rough landing as he reminded everyone that Cena is an actual Transformer.
Those freaking out over @JohnCena's rough landing must have missed the fact that he was revealed to be an actual transformer the day before.
