15 Years Ago: John Cena Makes His WWE Debut
Today, arguably, is one of the most important days in WWE history. Not only is it the 6th anniversary of CM Punk's infamous Pipe Bomb. But, it is also the 15th anniversary of the debut of the franchise, John Cena. Way before becoming the 'Dr. of Thuganomics', a 16 time World Champion or the 'Face that Runs the Place', he was the 'Prototype' who stepped up to challenge Kurt Angle in, what at the time, seemed like a throw away match.
Watching his debut 15 years later is hilarious. Who knew this super green, stupid idiot who got beat by Kurt Angle would go on to become on of the biggest stars in the business? Crazy how things work out some times...
Anyway, speaking of Cena, he will be making his WWE return next week on Smackdown. Oh it's true, it's damn true.
