When speaking to Roman Reigns about how he was safeguarded during his WWE career, John Cena mentioned The Shield.
“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.”
CM Punk hasn’t appeared in a WWE ring in over seven years, but fans have made it clear that he’s a talent they want to see on a regular basis.
The self-proclaimed “Best in the World” has recently been linked to AEW, but John Cena mentioned him tonight on SmackDown. The former 16-time World Champion discussed how he plans to celebrate his SummerSlam victory over Reigns, stating that he will jump the barrier and possibly kiss Reigns before exiting The Allegiant Arena.
This is how CM Punk celebrated his victory against John Cena in 2011, before quitting the ring and leaving the WWE Universe believing he would never return.
Nikki Bella hasn’t been a part of WWE in a long time, and she hasn’t been in John Cena’s life in over two years. Despite the fact that the former Divas Champion and Cena chose to break their relationship after six years in 2018, she was used as an insult thrown at Cena.
To make a point, Roman Reigns brought out how dull Cena was, referencing Nikki Bella alongside his typical simile.
