Fresh off his return last night at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view, John Cena kicked off this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw from Dallas, TX.
Cena said he showed up last night and he ruined Roman Reigns’ championship celebration and it was the fans that brought him back to WWE and it was also Reigns who brought him back. Cena said that he wants the Universal Championship and he wants the match at SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.
Cena said it’s not about a history-making 17th championship win. He is back because “Roman is an a**hole” and the “pathetic Roman Reigns experience” has gone on long enough. He called him an overexposed gimmick that is not as over as he says he is and “that is coming from me.” Cena said that he will be at SmackDown on Friday and he can’t wait to see him.
At this point, Matt Riddle went out to the ring to interact with Cena.
Cena vs. Reigns is the main event for SummerSlam. The other match that is likely for the show is Edge vs. Seth Rollins and it’s expected that Bobby Lashley’s opponent will be named later tonight on Raw.
