We have a main event. Summerslam is in less than a month and that means it is time to get ready for what might be the biggest show of the year. For the first time ever, Summerslam is going to be taking place in an NFL stadium, meaning there are going to be tens of thousands of people in attendance. That show needs a headliner and now they have just that.

This week on SmackDown, John Cena vs. Roman Reigns for Reigns’ Universal Title was officially confirmed for Summerslam. Reigns and Finn Balor were signing the contract but Baron Corbin interrupted by attacking Balor. Cena ran out to prevent Corbin from signing the contract himself and then signed, with the match being made official. This comes after Reigns had declined a match with Cena last week.

They do have a history together. Check out Reigns vs. Cena over the years:

Roman Reigns refuses to answer John Cena’s challenge: SmackDown, July 23, 2021

Opinion: This was a matter of making everything official, as Cena vs. Reigns was as obvious as it could have gotten the second Cena returned at Money in the Bank. That isn’t a bad thing either as Cena is one of the few people who could seem like a major threat to Reigns. This should be a heck of a title match, even if there might not be the most drama as to who leaves with the title.
