      haha i can see it now, Rusev chokeslams Cena through 2 tables with broken light bulbs on it. The tables are wrapped in barbed wire, and they both are set on fire. He goes to pin Cena, then Cena kicks out at 2, and then he hits Rusev with than AA out of nowhere for the win, did i miss anything?
