John Cena warns Roman Reigns that he will embarrass him

John Cena was in his prime game when he came out to cut a promo in response to Roman Reigns’ denial of his SummerSlam challenger. First, John Cena pointed out that it was stupid for Reigns to say that he doesn’t want to fight the 16 time WWE Champion because he felt there was no change in Cena for over two decades.

Cena then responded by pointing out that it would have been a tragedy if Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock completely changed their gimmick even after being the best in the business.

However, Cena was in top gear when he stated Reigns didn’t reject him for how he looked but instead, for how he would make the tribal chief look at the SummerSlam.
