John Cena took on Baron Corbin at the 30th edition of WWE SummerSlam. The question going into this match was whether or not Corbin was in the doghouse with management after cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase and losing last week on Smackdown Live.
This match was billed as The Franchise vs. The Future and the announcers said that Cena was in Corbin’s head after costing him is MITB case last week. Corbin seemed to have more to prove in front of the Brooklyn crowd. The announcers noted that he seemed very angry and too preoccupied with what the fans thought. Corbin showed extra fire in the match. At one point in the match, he hit a chokeslam into a backbreaker on Cena. Cena turned thing around and almost hit an Attitude Adjustment but Corbin turned things around and hit the Deep Six. Cena kicked out at 2.
