WWE Raw results, summary, scores: WWE celebrates John Cena;  Riddle, Becky Lynch eligible for Money in the Bank

On Monday night, WWE Raw celebrated the 20th anniversary of John Cena’s debut in the promotion. He was a staple in all of the pre-show promos, and most of the first two hours centered around Cena eventually taking to the ring to give a promo about his relationship with WWE fans.

The show was also marked by the ongoing build-up of Saturday’s signature live event Money in the Bank. This construction involved adding a man and a woman to the money ladder matches in the bank.

CBS Sports was with you all night with summaries and highlights from Sames Auto Arena in Laredo, Texas.

WWE celebrates John Cena’s 20th birthday

Video packages highlighting John Cena’s career were aired throughout the run of the show. Halfway through the show, Cena is shown talking to Ezekiel backstage, telling Ezekiel to never forget who he is, when she interrupts the theory. The theory ran to Cena, noting that at just 24 years old he had more success than Cena had and now Cena was just an old man wearing jorts. Cena snapped when Theory tried to create a avatar, leaving Theory angry.

Later in the show, Vince McMahon introduced Cena, who walked into the ring while the WWE locker room was standing on the entrance ramp and applauded. Cena cut a show fairly long, talking about how WWE fans made him a better person and that nothing he does is just about him, “It’s about us.” The theory did not appear during the clip and the whole thing ended up with Cena partying with fans.

Cena’s whole thing didn’t have much pay off, just a tease for a final theory match and a classic promo for Cena’s face. The show was heavily lined with video bundles during the first two hours. McMahon’s participation was totally unnecessary, but he’s been doing it for show after show, since news broke of an internal investigation into allegations of misconduct that led him to temporarily step down as CEO and President of WWE. Still, Cena knows how to run a crowd and will always get a great reaction when he shows up. B degree
