The unthinkable happened when NXT Champion Kevin Owens defeated John Cena at WWE Elimination Chamber. At Money in the Bank 2015, The Champ will get the opportunity to redeem himself when he faces Owens in a highly anticipated rematch.
Though Owens has only been in WWE since December, he has made the most of the past six months. He debuted in impressive fashion at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, only to bulldoze his longtime friend Sami Zayn. Two months to the day after, he destroyed Zayn to capture the NXT Championship, then pummeled Zayn into the canvas in their rematch at TakeOver: Unstoppable.
In the midst of all that, Owens made his way up to the main roster and stepped up to the biggest dog in the yard, flooring Cena with his devastating Pop-up Powerbomb on several occasions.
For his brash display of aggression, The Authority rewarded the NXT Champion with a one-on-one bout against Cena at Elimination Chamber. And though Owens had never stepped in the ring with a competitor like John Cena, the NXT Champion showed no nervousness in the ring, answering everything Cena threw at him. Kevin Owens shocked the world when he drove The Champ into the canvas with the Pop-up Powerbomb to pick up the biggest win of his 15-year career.
As cameras broadcast the shocked reactions of the Cenation live to the world, Owens stood in the ring and followed up on his career-making victory with a bold statement: “It’s time for John Cena to go.”
Can Owens prove that his victory at Elimination Chamber was no fluke, or will Cena make the NXT Champion eat his words?
