Six years ago on May 2, 2011, it was announced that the United States had finally captured and killed Osama bin Laden. The United States had been hunting Osama endlessly after he planned the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Most people assumed he was hiding in a hole in the desert. Turns out he was chilling in a pretty big house. But that’s not the point of this article.
Once the United States got word of Osama’s death, “U-S-A” chants rang out simultaneously from coast to coast — San Fran to the Big Apple. Everybody took a moment to celebrate and say “We finally got the fucker.”
On that glorious day for the red, white, and blue, the WWE happened to be having an Extreme Rules PPV event. Obviously the WWE couldn’t just ignore Osama’s death. So they made a brilliant move and did the most American thing possible. They handed American hero John Cena a mic and told him to go tell the people the good news. What transpired next is more American than apple pie, institutional racism, and baseball. WWE fans are some of the most prideful blue-blooded Americans we have in this great nation. Let’s take a minute to soak in the moment they got the message from their lord and savior, John Cena.
