Wade Barrett appeared as dark and moody as a winter in England. No wonder. The night before at WWE Bragging Rights, the leader of The Nexus informed John Cena that if he were to lose his match against WWE Champion Randy Orton, Cena would be fired from WWE. Well, the petulant Brit defeated The Viper by disqualification thanks to a well-timed Attitude Adjustment on him by his unwilling bodyguard, Cena. One problem: A title cannot change hands on a disqualification. All of which meant that Cena would not be fired and that Orton would retain the title.
John Cena def. WWE Champion Randy Orton by Disqualification
Turnabout, meet fair play. One night earlier, Wade Barrett had defeated WWE Champion Randy Orton by disqualification at WWE Bragging Rights thanks to John Cena. Tonight, the Englishman made certain Cena won his match against Orton by the very same means.
