Most Noticeable Return: John Cena

This week's most noticeable was John Cena. His last appearance for WWE was at WrestleMania where he lost in two minutes to The Undertaker so having him defeat Triple H in his return was a big moment for him. It is unknown when John Cena will return to Raw again but his victory over Triple H was a good match to start the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
