Second verse, same as the first.

At WrestleMania 30, Bray Wyatt tried to get John Cena to turn to evil in order to get a victory. Cena, as usual, found a virtuous way to get his hand raised.

But Wyatt wasn't done leading into their Extreme Rules 2014 steel-cage rematch. The previous Monday on Raw Wyatt enlisted a "Children of the Corn"-worthy bunch of kids singing "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" before donning goat masks.

The message was clear: Cena has always struggled to appease fans older than 13. If the kids left him, there would be nothing left.

Cena had to win for them Sunday night, and appeared to do so more than once before Wyatt's henchmen, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, got involved.

As Cena continually tried to escape the cage to win the match, Harper and Rowan held the cage door closed, piggy-backed under Cena when he tried to climb out of the cage and threatened him with a steel chair when he tried to climb down again.

As Cena continued to fight, he faced struggles inside and outside of the cage. He had thrown Harper into the cage to keep him from interferring on the outside. That left Harper to stop one Cena pin attempt and Rowan to continually thwart Cena's attempt to climb.

After finally taking out Harper and Rowan, Cena looked to have a clear path to the door. But just then, the lights when out, and when they came back on a black-robe wearing child was delivering a version of the same song that creeped out Cena Monday night.

Cena retreated back into the ring, only for Wyatt to hit his "Sister Abigail" finisher before escaping the cage for the win.
