In a pivotal moment in professional wrestling history, the longstanding debate over which brand is superior — World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) or Total Nonstop Action (TNA) — decisively ended last night when TNA legend AJ Styles demolished WWE stalwart John Cena.
TNA’s “invasion” of WWE has been escalating for months, as masterminded by TNA president and insane genius Dixie Carter, and it culminated this week on Raw with Styles sneak-attacking Cena.
WWE honcho Vince McMahon admitted defeat following Raw, and begrudgingly phoned Carter with cordial but terse congratulations.
Cena was the so-called “face of WWE” for a decade, while Styles was the same for TNA, leading countless fans to speculate about a dream match pitting the two against one another.
The fantasy booking was reminiscent of the glory days of NWA versus WWF, when fans wondered who would win in a match between NWA champ Ric Flair and patriotic WWF hero [NAME REDACTED].
