Ahead of tomorrow night’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view, John Cena and Roman Reigns closed out this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown with a face-to-face segment.
Reigns said that Cena said a lot of stupid things last week and the fans reacted because he said it with energy. Reigns asked Paul Heyman to remind everyone that this version of Roman Reigns has not been pinned.
Cena acknowledged that he is going to film a movie soon but he plans on winning the title tomorrow so he could film the movie and leave Reigns to embarrass himself and it just takes a simple “1-2-3” count. Cena said he wasn’t back to promote movies but he’s here to demote Reigns.
Cena added that he plans on breaking the all-time championship record tomorrow night at SmackDown and SmackDown will not have a champion until Cena returns for WrestleMania. Reigns got angry and said that he wanted to raise the stakes. He said that he will leave as the champion or he will leave WWE.
