Shots FIRED this past Monday on RAW!
A “shoot” in pro wrestling is any UNplanned, UNscripted, or real life occurrence within a wrestling event or promo. This past week on RAW, John Cena went face to face with Roman Reigns in a contract signing for their match at No Mercy. Seeing these two in the ring, you kind of got the idea that this was going to be a quick and boring promo. Well the total opposite of that happened. John Cena, who has the backing of Mr. McMahon to simply let loose on the microphone, and boy did he deliver.
A few of Cena’s statements where he went in on Roman Reigns:
“You should be ashamed I’m a part-timer, cause I can do this better part-time than you could ever do it full-time.”
“I’m still here because you can’t do your job!”
“Roman Reigns is a cheap-ass, corporately created, John Cena bootleg.”
Cena even threw jabs at Roman Reigns’ mic work, after Roman cut one of his better promos:
“Congratulations, it only took you five years to cut a halfway decent promo!”
With “shoot” promos being as rare as they are, it makes it all worth watching. These types of promos go on my list of being one of the reasons why you can’t miss a wrestling show. You don’t want to read about something like this, you want to feel it LIVE! As much as I would love to see a promo of that nature every time an athlete grabs the mic, the scarcity of the “shoot” promos make it that much better.
