Nakamura delivered a back suplex during the bout and accidentally dropped Cena on the back of his neck before finishing him off with a devastating Kinshasa.
The Artist claims that dangerous move infuriated some people backstage but insists that The Champ took his side and told everyone that he was actually responsible for the awkward fall.
Nakamura told Gorilla Position: “Some people were upset backstage, not John Cena. But someone. They got p****d off at me, ‘Why did you do that?’. So I just thought, my career is finished today. But everybody came to support me and help me, even John Cena. [Cena said] ‘Not his fault, it was my fault’.
“Not everybody gets the chance to wrestle with John Cena now. I felt good in the ring with John Cena. If I have the chance I’m gonna wrestle with him again. Maybe we can create [something] better than before.”
After the match The King of Strong Style apologised as he shook hands with the Leader of the Cenation, who luckily didn’t suffer any damage.
But the 16-time world champion insisted he had no reason to be sorry as he raised his hand.
Cena doesn’t make regular appearances in WWE anymore as he is building a career in Hollywood and is now set to co-star with legendary martial artist Jackie Chan in the upcoming movie Project X.
The ex-WWE Champion has featured in various blockbuster hits like Trainwreck, Daddy’s Home 2 as well as Blockers and has worked with some of the biggest names in the business like Amy Schumer, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.
His last match took place at the Greatest Royal Rumble last April in Saudi Arabia where he beat legendary rival Triple H.
The former Wold Heavyweight Champion’s next appearance will take place in Shanghai on September 1 during a live event and promised he will debut a new finisher he picked up during his training at the JC Stunt Team International Training Centre.
He is also scheduled to battle Kevin Owens at WWE Super Show-Down on October 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Nakamura has had an impressive year as he won the Royal Rumble Match, battled AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 34 and won the US Championship from Jeff Hardy.
The Japanese superstar retained the title at SummerSlam against Hardy thanks to a Kinshasa.
The NJPW legend suffered a Swanton Bomb during the bout’s closing stages but reached for the ropes and broke the pin.
Hardy tried to hit his finisher once more while the champion laid on the ring apron.
However, Nakamura moved away at the last minute and the challenger crashed and burned.
The US Champion then kneed Hardy in the face, picked up the win and now looks set for a new challenge on Smackdown.
