John Cena returned to WWE to kick off Monday's Raw Reunion show.

The 16-time world champion made a brief cameo at WrestleMania 35 in April, bringing back his "Dr. of Thuganomics" gimmick for a segment with Elias. Cena kept his throwback jersey in the closet this time around, instead hyping up what was to come on Raw:

He did provide a brief glimpse of his alter ego during an exchange with The Usos when he referenced their brushes with the law:

Hall of Famer Rikishi, father of the Uso twins, arrived shortly thereafter. All four stars teased performing the dance Rikishi made popular as a member of Too Cool.

The Revival and D-Von Dudley spoiled the occasion, however, as the Raw tag team champions prepared for their scheduled match with The Usos.

Still, Cena's appearance helped set the stage for what will be a nostalgic night of WWE action.
