SummerSlam 2014 wasn’t too good to John Cena, 37. The WWE Superstar lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to Brock Lesnar, 37, who completely owned John in the match with a series of F5s and constant vicious suplexes and brutal pummels to the face and ribs. It was demolition at its finest!

SummerSlam: Brock Lesnar Wins Against John Cena

The Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena face-off was quite the fight. The massive 6’3 wrestler decimated John at the SummerSlam event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Aug. 17.

The crowd watched as Brock continually german duplexed John and viciously jabbed John with his knee in the ribs on constant occasions. John got a few good punches and offense in, but he was no match for Brock. 

Brock would just throw John around like a rag doll and John weakened over the course of the match. Brock flashed a victorious grin as he continued to dominate the SummerSlam championship match-up.

During the match, Brock asked the referee to inquire with John on several occasions whether or not he was ready to give up, reports. Just like John’s towel said before the match, he was never going to “give up.”

The match lasted over 15 minutes and Brock reigned supreme. Brock eventually pulled John to his feet and showed off his signature move, the F5, on John for the three count, the outlet reports.

Brock is now your new WWE World Heavyweight Champion! Sorry Cenation, Brock had the upper hand in the ring this time around, but we have a feeling John will be coming back with a vengeance at their next match-up.
