During the WWE SmackDown, John Cena issued a challenge to Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa for a match at WWE Fastlane. While Cena had initially teamed up with AJ Styles, a backstage attack by Uso and Sikoa left Cena without a partner, despite having already committed to the match.
Nevertheless, Cena declared his willingness to face Sikoa and Uso on his own if required at Fastlane. Cena soon found himself overwhelmed and facing a 2-on-1 attack. However, the tables quickly turned when LA Knight made a surprise entrance, coming to Cena’s aid and balancing the odds. Together, they successfully repelled Uso and Sikoa. Knight then signed the contract for the match, marking himself as Cena’s official partner for the upcoming WWE Fastlane event.
