Speaking of Cena, WWE posted a video of him talking about his return at the upcoming WWE Live Event in Shanghai, China on September 1st.
Cena noted that he’ll debut a new finishing move since his current finisher, Attitude Adjustment, isn’t effective anymore.
Below is what Cena said:
“I’ve reworked the Attitude Adjustment just about every way I can. I’ve done it off of the second rope, I’ve done two in succession. I’ve done it left-handed, right-handed. It used to be about 100% with its batting average, and now it’s about 50%. Maybe less.
So not only is this a new maneuver that has a true foundation in Chinese culture, which I’m very proud of because I love to pay respect to my experience here, but it is also extremely powerful. I’m very excited to debut something that I’ve learned here that maybe I can take a piece of my Chinese experience back to the world.”
