Old match footage found on the internet.
Unearthed by Cageside Seats member Vikant, a video is available online of the SummerSlam main event competitors clashing on WWE Velocity back in February 2003. John Cena, under his “Doctor of Thuganomics” gimmick took on the “unknown” Bryan Danielson, Daniel Bryan‘s real name.
Both men look very different, and Cena certainly displays a different in-ring style to anything we have seen from him in recent years. The clip doesn’t have great sound, but it is still a good watch.
The two will meet again, this time for the WWE Championship in the main event of SummerSlam live from the STAPLES Center on August 18th.
