Having cashed in on arguably the biggest ‘WrestleMania’ in history and fresh off the heels off of a successful edition of ‘RAW’, WWE is looking towards it’s next marquee event, SummerSlam, to make a big splash.That “big splash” could very well come in the form of two of their most controversial superstars; John Cena and current WWE Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns.
John Cena who has been out of action for quite sometime now due to injury has announced via Twitter on April 26th that he’ll be back actively competing in the ring on Memorial Day edition of Monday Night Raw on May 30.
Even though Cena being out of action, He did make a surprise appearance in a segment involving The Rock and The Wyatt Family right before Roman Reigns defeated Triple H & taking the title of World heavy weight champion from Triple H.
As we know John Cena is WWE’s top dog and is “The Face that Runs the Place” this opens up a whole new perspective for WWE. Now WWE Creative just has to decide what it wants to do with the returning superstar.
Cena and Reigns Fans have been begging fo such a move for nearly a decade now. Its of no doubt that Cena has made the company (and himself) so much money in merchandising, not to mention brought positive PR to the company through his charity work. Sources say that Cena will be used as a stepping stone for any of the newcomers seeking to make an impact.
On top of that, Reigns has already called out Cena on last Monday’ ‘Today Show’ while discussing defending his newly won championship:
“Anybody and everybody. Like we said earlier, WrestleMania is full of superstars, A-listers, we had The Rock, we had John Cena there… if they want some, hey John Cena, the champ is here.”
It is widely expected that Reigns will retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship till at least the coming SummerSlam.
WWE is planning on to cash a lot of money & attracting crowd with the clash between these two, with a creative storyline, would continue to drive new subscribers to the ‘WWE Network” and help continue to position ‘SummerSlam’!
However, WWE might be tempted to utilize the star power of John Cena who is at the top of the card right now and make him the one to finally put WWE back on path of where it’s always wanted to go. For latest updates and news on WWE follow Sportskeeda WWE .
