Rocket League have announced the addition of John Cena and Roman Reigns to the game’s roster to celebrate SummerSlam weekend!
Rocket League made the announcement as part of an Epic Games SummerSlam celebration, with Fall Guys and Fortnite following suit. Cena and Reigns won’t be physical characters in Rocket League as they are in the other two games; instead, decals in their style will be added between 28 July and 2 August.
The popular video game’s newsfeed confirmed that these designs will be John Cena’s ‘You Can’t See Me’ slogan and Roman Reigns’ ‘Head of the Table’ persona. These decals will be added to Rocket League on Thursday, 28 July at 9am PDT (5pm BST for those in the United Kingdom):
“SUPERSONIC ACROBATIC ROCKET-POWERED CHAMPIONS
Hold onto the edge of your seat as Superstars John Cena and Roman Reigns jump into the Arena! Players can enter the New Era with John Cena and Roman Reigns inspired Octane Decals.
Take the stage July 28.

AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA!
Making his debut as the Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena quickly grew a freestyle rap persona into one of the most extraordinary careers of all time, eventually winning 16 World Championships.
Cena’s famous ‘You Can’t See Me’ slogan is emblazoned across a new Octane Decal, perfect for landing an Attitude Adjustment on unsuspecting foes.
ROMAN REIGNS SUPREME
Next up on the card is The Head of The Table himself, Roman Reigns. As a member of the famous Anoa’i family of wrestlers in real life and former member of The Shield, Reigns was always destined to take his place as the face of WWE’s New Era.

The WWE SummerSlam Bundle will be available July 28 – Aug 2, beginning at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC)”

Developed and published by Psyonix, Rocket League first hit shelves in July 2015, being released across a range of consoles and even on macOS. The game has been consistently praised for its graphics, and has won a number of awards from industry professionals.
John Cena and Roman Reigns will no doubt attract WWE fans to the game, if they weren’t already. Unquestionably two of the most polarising WWE Superstars ever, they competed over the latter’s Universal Championship at last year’s SummerSlam event, with ‘The Head of the Table’ remaining champion to this day.
The Epic Games SummerSlam celebration will run over SummerSlam weekend, with John Cena also being added to Fortnite. The Undertaker, Asuka, and Xavier Woods, meanwhile, will be added to Fall Guys.
