WWE have announced the ‘Summer of Cena’ as the 16-time champion returns to action.
Following his triumphant return at WWE Money In The Bank, John Cena arrived back on Monday Night RAW setting his sights on Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Once in the ring the former 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 sure-fire Hall of Famer closed by saying that he’d see Reigns at SmackDown.
The ‘Summer of Cena’ includes five episodes of SmackDown, two RAW’s and seven house shows as well as SummerSlam.
