John Cena is back in WWE and he has his sights firmly set WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Following his triumphant return at WWE Money In The Bank, Cena kicked of RAW receiving a thunderous ovation as he made his way to the ring.
Once in the ring the 16-time world champion wasted no time in getting down to business. After praising the fans, Cena laid down a challenge to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam in Las Vegas on August 21st. However, the veteran wasn’t quite done there as he had a few choice words for the champion.
Cena called Reigns an “a**hole” before saying that he needed to be knocked down a peg or two. Mr ‘Hustle, Loyalty and Respect’ blasted Reigns as over-hyped and over-protected saying that he “isn’t as over as he thinks he is,” adding “and that’s coming from me.”
The returning star closed his thoughts on Reigns by saying that he was going to be at SmackDown and hoped to see Reigns there.

Following a gruelling main event at Money In The Bank between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Edge, John Cena made his shocking returning. After Seth Rollins had cost Edge the match, he and the Rated R Superstar fought through the crowd and out of sight. This left Reigns who had barely retained his title alone in the ring.
