Clearly, the Firefly Fun House Match between John Cena and 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt sucked. It was all sorts of weird and confusing with Cena talking about "Ruthless Aggression" and then some nostalgia-inducing stuff in the form of WCW Monday Nitro and Cena in a nWo shirt. Needless to say, fans were furious with the way the whole encounter was planned. And for all that epic fanfare. Cena lost.

"This is horrible... I want the last 10 minutes of my life back," said a fan and the rest of Twitter readily agreed. "This dumber than that Boneyard Match," tweeted a fan. "I just got dumber and feel insulted!" exclaimed a fan after the fight. "Firefly Fun House... The biggest BS ever..." opined another. It's safe to say "disappointing" is an understatement. 

Fans who hoped for a royal pummeling were agitated by the theatrics. "What is this goofy nonsense? Are they gonna fight or what?" asked a fan. As for Bray's win, this was what this fan had to say: "I’ve watched wrestling most of my life, never thought #WWE would sell its soul to the devil. Meaning by bray white."

This one's the best of the lot. A frustrated fan gave his two cents worth. "WWE Other than screwing the fans out of a Cena/Wyatt match by substituting it with a bunch of bull***t that resembled an SNL skit... a horrible excuse for a #Wrestlemania match, it was a memorable night."

While the nostalgia did help at the start, it eventually dragged on and on till fans couldn't wait anymore. "This is stupid, I thought there was going to be an actual match," tweeted a fan who had tuned in. At the end of the day, Cena just sort of fought a puppet and lost. "This is such a waste of my time. Some of us are essential workers who have to get up early in the morning," wrote an exasperated fan. Summing this up with a sarcasm-heavy tweet: "A+ segment/match. Beautifully written and clever af. Loved every second of this"
