After John Cena won the WWE Championship in a three-man cage match during Extreme Rules on Pay Per View, the wrestling star heard the news of President Obama's announcement that Osama bin Laden is dead. Cena put down his championship belt and grabbed a microphone to speak to the crowd.
"I walk out here every night with hustle, loyalty and respect on my sleeve," Cena said. "That is a credo I've adopted from the men and women who defend the freedom of this country. The President has just announced that we have caught and compromised to a permanent end Osama bin Laden."
Just like the fans at the Phillies-Mets game on Sunday night, the crowd erupted in cheers and chants of "U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!"
Cena said he feels "damn proud to be an American" and walked out to "The Stars and Stripes Forever" playing over the speakers.
