John Cena Represented United States In Defeating Rusev At WWE Battleground In A Flag Match

By Shawn Rice

John Cena added another victory over Rusev in their long feud with a win in their flag match at WWE Battleground. The rules were simple: Grab your own flag, carry it to the top of the entrance ramp and plant it on your home country’s pedestal.

Cena grabbed hold of the American flag and a grueling stop-and-start ensued, with each Superstar inching their colors halfway up the ramp. Eventually, the fight spilled to the top of the entryway, where Rusev set up a pair of tables next to the American podium for the ultimate statement maneuver — an Attitude Adjustment of his own through the tables.

He had to settle for an Accolade that put Cena to sleep, but before The Super Athlete could plant his flag, Cena came to and blocked it with his bare hands. Rusev attempted another Accolade, but Cena administered an ultimate statement of his own, lifeting Rusev on his shoulders, marching up the American podium and Attitude Adjusting Rusev through the tables.

Cena then was able to plan the flag atop the pedestal for the win.

At WWE Battleground, John Cena will defend America’s honor when he goes to war against Rusev in a Flag Match tonight.

Cena made his long-awaited SmackDown LIVE return on Independence Day to celebrate the birthday of the good old red, white and blue in style. However, the 16-time World Champion was only seeing red when Rusev suddenly barged into the mix to insult the USA in front of one of the most vigilant WWE patriots and the WWE Universe.

While The Leader of the Cenation was ready to throw down right there and then, The Bulgarian Brute made it clear he would battle on his terms at WWE Battleground. Cena was more than willing to oblige, and the showdown was soon made official.

In this explosive Flag Match, the American and Bulgarian flags will be set above the turnbuckles on opposite sides of the ring and the first Superstar to retrieve their country’s flag will be the winner.
