To everyone’s shock, ‘The King of Cool’ managed to eliminate Shawn Michaels, Kane and Chris Masters. It left him and John Cena in the ring. For a while, it seemed as if Carlito is going to be the champion after eliminating John Cena. However, the WWE champion bounced back in one of the best ways possible.

Carlito went off-guard after eliminating ‘The Masterpiece’ and John Cena rolled him up to retain his title in one of the most iconic battles of WWE history. It was a great victory for John Cena but Carlito earned respect from the entire WWE universe for his great performance against some of the best wrestlers in the world.

Currently, John Cena is not an active participant in WWE as he is focussing on his Hollywood career. He'll be seen in an episode of SmackDown later this month though. He is also scheduled to make an appearance at WrestleMania 36.
