John Cena vs. Roman Reigns is set for WWE SummerSlam



The second hour of this week's episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown kicked off with a SummerSlam contract signing between Finn Balor and Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Reigns referenced Cena's promo and insinuated that Cena thinks that Balor is a lesser man. Reigns said that Balor is worthy to challenge for the Universal Championship and worthy "to catch this beat down at SummerSlam."

Reigns then warned Balor that he would get smashed and get sent back to NXT. Balor said that it would be a privilege to return to NXT as the Universal Champion but before he could sign the contract, he was attacked by Baron Corbin and Corbin was about to sign the contract but Cena ran out and tossed Corbin out of the ring.
