“I’m here to try to bring WrestleMania to London.”
This resulted in a huge pop from the crowd. SmackDown star Grayson Waller then interrupted Cena. Grayson begins sucking up to Cena and then mocks him, and the crowd is chanting “shut the f**k up”.
Grayson said Cena is lying to the people by saying he’ll bring WrestleMania to England. Grayson said WrestleMania needs to go to his home country of Australia.
