World Wrestling Entertainment Comes to the Garden

On Monday Night, the Bruins and the Celtics were not the ones entertaining the people of Boston, but it was Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment. Their weekly Monday night program “Raw” sold out the TD Banknorth Garden and put on quite the spectacle. With less than five weeks left until WWE’s biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, Vince McMahon brought his brand of sports entertainment to Boston to give the fans a taste of what is to come.

This is not the first time that the WWE has graced Boston with its presence. In fact, with Wrestlemania approaching, it reminds us of the fact that the WWE held Wrestlemania 14 at the very same arena (then the FleetCenter).

The main event of the evening saw a World Championship match between Edge (champion) and the hometown hero, John Cena. This match was obviously put together in order to cash in on the fact that John Cena is a native of Massachusetts, having been born and grown up in West Newbury. It worked very well. As soon as Cena’s music hit, the crowd went insane and it set the tone for a good match.

The match itself was a back and forth affair with the challenger Cena seeming to get the upper hand until Edge grabbed his championship belt in an attempt to use it as a weapon. Cena stopped him and hoisted Edge up on his shoulders into position for his finishing maneuver, the “FU.” As this happened, the referee grabbed the belt and was en route to carrying it out of the ring when all of a sudden, while hoisted on Cena’s shoulders, Edge grabbed the belt from the referee and hit Cena in the head. This led to Edge’s disqualification and Cena winning the match. Unfortunately Cena did not win the title since the title can’t change hands via a DQ. So, the hometown crowd was not greeted to Cena as the new World Champion, but they got to see him walk out victorious.

The match and the event was a very enjoyable show for the Boston crowd and it was nice to see the hometown boy win his match. The WWE always puts on a good show for the Boston crowd whenever they come through and this time was no exception.
