That’s a future. WWE is on the way to Summerslam and they started the build in a hurry earlier this week. The show is coming up in just over a month and thankfully WWE actually seems to know that this time around. Summerslam will be held in a stadium this time around and that means they are going to need a huge main event. Now we know how they are going to take their next step in that direction.

The end of Money in the Bank saw John Cena make a long awaited return to the company to confront Roman Reigns. This week on Monday Night Raw, Cena made his return to WWE television and announced that he was interested in facing Reigns at Summerslam for the Universal Title. In addition, Cena announced that he would be appearing on this week’s SmackDown to confront Reigns face to face. The match has not yet been made official for Summerslam.

Cena being back is kind of a big deal. Check out his return and what SmackDown might be in for:

John Cena issues a challenge to Universal Champion Roman Reigns: Raw, July 19, 2021

John Cena's greatest SmackDown moments: WWE Top 10, Feb. 19, 2020

Opinion: Cena’s return might not be everyone’s favorite, but it is clear that he is possibly the biggest star in WWE all over again. There is an energy that he brings that cannot be duplicated and having him likely headlining Summerslam is going to make the show feel that much more important. Reigns defeating him is going to make his championship run seem bigger, and that is a great thing to see.

What do you expect from Cena and Reigns on SmackDown? What is next for both of them? Let us know in the comments below.
