WWE Superstars John Cena And Daniel Bryan To Attend Wizard World
Philadelphia Comic Con on May 30, June 1, 2013

Duo Continues Run Of Top WWE® Talent At Wizard World Shows In 2013; Join Celebrity Roster With Stan Lee, Summer Glau, William Shatner At Pennsylvania Convention Center

Wizard World has fast become the place for fans to meet top WWE stars, continuing this May/June with appearances by WWE Superstars John Cena and Daniel Bryan at Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Cena will meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photo ops on Thursday, May 30, from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. Bryan will do the same, as well as conduct an interactive Q&A panel, on Saturday, June 1, from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Cena combines his athleticism, charisma, strong work ethic and genuine personality to make him one of the brightest stars in WWE and its top-rated cable program, Monday Night RAW on the USA Network. He has been featured in People magazine as the “Sexy Man of the Week,” as well as in Men’s Fitness, Flex and USA Today. He has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, Live with Kelly and Michael, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and numerous other national TV programs. Cena devotes much of his time working on behalf of numerous charitable causes including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This past June, Cena set a Make-A-Wish record granting his 300th wish and is widely recognized as the only celebrity to reach the 300th wish milestone. In September 2012, Cena led WWE’s partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure during its month-long campaign to help cure breast cancer. Cena wore special co-branded, pink and black ring gear and fans were able to purchase the merchandise. WWE donated 100 percent of its profits to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, helping raise $1 million for breast cancer research and awareness.

Trained by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, Bryan honed his craft by competing on the independent wrestling circuit for 10 years. The pinnacle of Bryan’s career was achieved when he cashed in the Money In The Bank suitcase and pinned the Big Show to capture the World Heavyweight Championship at the TLC pay-per-view on December 18, 2011. Bryan is also active in WWE’s pro-social initiatives.

“John Cena is a once-in-a-generation athlete, performer and entertainer. And more importantly, an incredible humanitarian,” John Macaluso, Wizard World President and CEO. “After witnessing the massive crowds that came to see John in Chicago last year, we knew we had to have him back. And we are ecstatic John has decided to come to Philadelphia.”

“I’m glad to be back at Wizard World, I had such an amazing time meeting the fans last year in Chicago,” said WWE Superstar, John Cena. “I can’t wait to see the northeast Cenation fans at Philadelphia Comic Con!”

“Yes! Yes! Yes! was the chant we heard over and over again from our fans at last year’s Philadelphia Comic Con,” said Macaluso. “We knew at that moment we had to bring in Daniel Bryan, and we are thrilled to have him!”

“I’m looking forward to my first Wizard World Comic Con and meeting all the great fans in Philadelphia,” said WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan. “I heard they were chanting my name last year, so I am glad to be able to see everyone in person this year!”

Cena and Bryan join popular celebrity guests Stan Lee, Summer Glau, William Shatner, Manu Bennett and James Marsters among the headliners at Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con. They will be joined by a high-level collection of well-known artists and writers and a variety of activities, exhibitors and special attractions in the second largest event on Wizard World’s expanded 2013 calendar.

WWE Payback: WWE Champion John Cena vs. Ryback (Three Stages of Hell Match)

WWE Payback: WWE Champion John Cena vs. Ryback (Three Stages of Hell Match)

Just one night after their epic Last Man Standing Match at Extreme Rules ended in a No Contest, the rivalry between WWE Champion John Cena and Ryback took yet another explosive turn.

Entering the Raw arena on May 20 behind the wheel of an ambulance, Ryback had plenty to say. Before he opened his mouth, however, the monstrous Superstar climbed atop the ambulance in a symbolic gesture of dominance. He then launched into a missive delivered to Cena and the WWE Universe, making strong statements about the brutal battle he and the WWE Champion engaged in just one night earlier.

Ryback then set the WWE Universe ablaze when he called out the Cenation leader, telling The Champ that the next time they meet will be at WWE Payback on Sunday, June 16, in an Ambulance Match!

Not happy with only an Ambulance Match, Cena — who said “payback should be hell” — upped the ante on the Memorial Day edition of Raw by revealing the two would square off in a Three Stages of Hell Match.

The 2-out-of-3 Falls Match will be contested in three stages:
Stage 1: Lumberjack Match
Stage 2: Tables Match
Stage 3 (if necessary): Ambulance Match

As Ryback made abundantly clear on Raw, Cena may have walked out of Extreme Rules with his title intact, but he didn’t exactly walk out of the pay-per-view. Instead, the Cenation leader was strapped onto a stretcher and carted out of the arena. But he’s been beaten down before, and as the WWE Universe is well aware, Cena doesn’t know how to give anything less than everything he has.

Can the titleholder overcome his ever-hungry foe at WWE Payback? Or will Ryback finally “rule” as the new WWE Champion? Find out on June 16, only on pay-per-view!

WWE Monday Night RAW Results: 5/27/2013

WWE Monday Night RAW Results: 5/27/2013 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

John Cena responded to Ryback’s challenge and faced down Curtis Axel

 It’s been a week since the WWE Universe has seen John Cena in action, but let it never be said that the man doesn’t know how to respond to a challenge. The Champ was all business in his first trip out of the Titantron since being plowed through it by Ryback at Extreme Rules, and more to the point, he decided to see Ryback’s Ambulance Match proposition and raise the “Human Wrecking Ball” the rarely-seen Three Stages of Hell Match (think a 2-out-of-3-Falls Match, with special rules for each round ... in this case, Lumberjack Match, Tables Match and then an Ambulance Match).

Ryback was, of course, more than happy to accept and (in keeping with the theme of their bout) name himself Cena's own personal Beelzebub. But the sudden arrival of Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman turned the pow wow into a Canadian Standoff, the endgame of which was that the reborn progeny of Mr. Perfect secured himself a one-on-one match with the WWE Champion for later that evening. Sometimes it pays to be a Paul Heyman Guy.

Curtis Axel def. WWE Champion John Cena via Count-Out

Down goes Cena! Down goes Cena! Granted, Curtis Axel’s second Raw win in as many weeks happened under equally dubious circumstances as the previous one, but the record books will still reflect that Curtis Axel, Paul Heyman Guy, defeated the WWE Champion in Week Two under the mad scientist’s wing.

Everyone from Bret Hart to Cena himself questioned Axel’s alignment with Heyman, but the young gun certainly made an argument for their arrangement in a masterful performance against The Champ, keeping Cena on his heels and executing a textbook Perfect Plex for a near-fall. But before Cena could mount his comeback, the sight of an approaching ambulance lured him out of the ring. Of course, the arrival of the vehicle was a ruse for Ryback to mount a sneak attack. While Cena was able to thwart the big man’s attack, the damage was done. The Champ had lost the match, and Ryback’s implied message was clear: If Cena doesn’t watch his back, he’ll lose at Payback as well.
