Braun Strowman vs. John Cena for the 1st Time
John Cena is 8W-1L in televised singles matches this year. The only person to beat him 1-on-1 this year has been Shinsuke Nakamura, who defeated him to earn a title shot on the August 1st Smackdown. His last singles loss before then comes almost one year ago when he lost to Dean Ambrose in a 1-on-1 match on the September 20th, 2016 Smackdown.
Strowman has lost 3 singles matches in 2017. He lost to Reigns at Fastlane, to Owens by DQ on the January 30th Raw (for the Universal title), and to Kalisto in a dumpster match on the April 24th Raw. He’s won 8 televised singles matches this year, however, including 3 over Roman Reigns.
