WWE Payback 2023 Result: John Cena Served As Special Guest Referee During LA Knight Match

10 months ago By Sports Desk

John Cena wasn’t just the host of Payback; he ended up becoming the special guest referee for The Miz vs. LA Knight match!

Before the match began, there was already a lot of excitement and tension between The Miz and LA Knight. But having John Cena as the guest referee added even more excitement to the mix.

LA Knight has been climbing the ranks in WWE, and this match was possibly one of the most significant moments in his career. On the other hand, The Miz is a seasoned wrestler and one of the veterans on the roster. This contrast was evident in the first part of the match. The Miz used his experience to bend the rules and showcase his wrestling skills. Meanwhile, LA Knight struggled to find his rhythm and even exchanged words with Cena due to their frequent clashes.

As the match progressed, LA Knight found his groove and started to launch real attacks on The Miz. Every time Knight landed a neckbreaker, The Miz had a countermove, usually a DDT. However, The Miz’s ego and overconfidence worked to Knight’s advantage. The Miz missed an attack on a stunned Knight in the corner, and later, when he pinned Knight, he tried to use the ropes for leverage. But Cena caught this and prevented the pin. The Miz did manage to execute his Skull Crushing Finale, but Knight kicked out just in the nick of time, frustrating The Miz.

In a playful imitation of Cena, The Miz attempted an elbow drop on Knight but missed. Knight capitalized on this opportunity and delivered his signature move, the Blunt Force Trauma, securing a 1-2-3 pinfall victory.

The Future for LA Knight and John Cena:
After the match, Cena approached Knight at the entrance of the arena and raised his hand, showing respect for Knight’s win. It seemed like there might be some tension building between Knight and Cena. Who knows, we might still see a match between them in the future!
