WWE Raw: John Cena has returned, and he has returned for good. The 16-time World Champion kicked off tonight’s WWE Raw and he did in his accustomed style by infusing spirit in the WWE Universe. 

Cena addressed the WWE Universe and said that he really missed all of them. He further added that the reason for his return is the love and response he gets from the WWE Universe and Roman Reigns.

WWE Raw: John Cena has his sight set on the Universal Champion Roman Reigns

John Cena has always been an instrumental figure in taking this company to new heights. Vince McMahon has been pushing Roman Reigns to become the next John Cena, but it seems like the WWE Universe is not willing to accept the Tribal Chief as the new face of the company.

Maybe that is the reason why veteran stars like John Cena and Edge returned to the company to challenge Roman Reigns. Last night, the response John Cena got upon his return at the Money in the Bank PPV & the kind of pop Edge has received since his return clearly suggest that the WWE Universe is not at all behind the self-proclaimed and arrogant Head of the Table Roman Reigns.

Tonight on WWE Raw, John Cena mentioned Roman Reigns and said that the latter is one of the reasons for his return. Cena stated that Roman Reigns thing is overhyped, overprotected, and an asshole. He further added that if Roman is good then he doesn’t have to ask for an acknowledgment. Here’s what he said about Roman Reigns,

“Roman Reigns is an arrogant, self-absorbed, overhyped, overprotected, overexposed gimmick who is not as over as he says he is, and that’s coming from me. There is a saying, ‘if you’re good, you’ll tell everybody. If you’re good, you’ll demand everyone acknowledge you’ … the rest of that saying is, ‘If you’re great, they’ll tell you.”

Further, John Cena confirmed that he would be on the Blue Brand next week in Cleveland, Ohio, to confront Roman Reigns, and in about five weeks from now at WWE Summerslam, he is coming for the Universal Championship to become a 17-time World Champion.

The statement from Cena was loud & clear, and it would be interesting to see what the leader of Cenation has up in stores for Friday Night Smackdown on July 23.
