John Cena returned to the ring at WWE’s house show in Shanghai, China today and debuted the “new move” that he’d been teasing for the event.
Cena, Bobby Lashley & Finn Balor teamed against Elias, Baron Corbin & Jinder Mahal in a six-man tag at the show. The finish of the match was Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment on Elias and then pinning him after hitting the “lightning fist” — which is a punch to the face.
After the match, Cena got on the microphone, spoke in Mandarin, and thanked the fans.
Cena has been in China filming the movie “Project X.” He stars alongside Jackie Chan as a former Marine who Chan, a private security contractor from China, teams up with to stop attackers who are trying to steal oil from a refinery in the Middle East.
This was the first time Cena has wrestled since facing Triple H at the Greatest Royal Rumble in April. Cena’s next announced match is at Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia on October 6, where he’ll be teaming with Lashley against Elias & Kevin Owens.
The finish of today’s six-man tag is available to watch below:
