WWE has not made an official announcement about SummerSlam’s date or location yet, but that information is on the way. There are a lot of things going on within the company, but the belief is that they have card worthy of an NFL stadium show.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is discussing the idea of Roman Reigns vs John Cena for the Universal Title at the biggest party of the summer. At this time it is unknown how far along those talks are, but Cena and WWE are in contact with each other.
Stories going around are that WWE has a main event and a guest host to make it stadium-worthy. The leading rumor is Roman Reigns vs. John Cena for the Universal title. We do know that as of last week they were in talks with Cena.
It was previously reported that John Cena is slated to be at the go-home SmackDown show before Money in the Bank. That has not been confirmed by the company either, but it seems that there are a couple of possible appearances in Cena’s future.
The pandemic caused John Cena to miss over a year away from WWE. He was filming the Peacemaker HBO Max spin-off series in Canada during WrestleMania time. He could not attend or work Mania due to Canada’s strict reentry protocol. That Peacemaker show reportedly wraps shooting on July 7th, making it very possible for Cena to work something out with WWE.
We will have to see how things pan out in this situation, but Roman Reigns vs John Cena is a very likely possibility for SummerSlam at this point.
