John Cena and Roman Reigns are set to throw down on August 21st, and those two kicked off SmackDown in a big way this week. They traded some huge shots on microphone, and it was a biting back and forth verbal war, to say the least.
John Cena opened up the show by cutting a promo on Roman Reigns. He admitted that Reigns will beat him up at SummerSlam, but he will still defeat the Tribal Chief. Then Roman Reigns joined the conversation in a big way.
Roman Reigns didn’t hold anything back as he fired a big shot at John Cena. “20 years of missionary might have been good for you, but it wasn’t good enough for Nikki Bella,” Reigns said. Cena then let Reigns have it by dragging his teeth and bringing Dean Ambrose into the mix.
“You want a compelling story? You want to criticize me by bringing up dick jokes and sexual positions and a breakup I have. You haven’t been embarrassed. You’ve been protected. That pretty face. Those giant bars of soap you’ve got for teeth. You’ve been protected, Roman. You’ve been protected by The Shield. Hell, you almost ruined Seth Rollins. You ran Dean Ambrose out of WWE. You’ve had 10 whole years, 5 WrestleMania main events. Paul Heyman in your corner, two lackeys to do your dirty work. You’ve had the protection of the system, and it isn’t working. You should be embarrassed.”
We will have to see who walks out of Las Vegas as Universal Champion on August 21st. Cena and Reigns brought the fire to the microphone during tonight’s SmackDown event. Odds are they will also tear each other apart in Allegiant Stadium, but there won’t be any time for talking.
