Fast forward to Roman Reigns’ segment. This was the SummerSlam 2021 contract signing segment between Reigns and Finn Balor. As The Tribal Chief was getting settled in, the fans started cheering and calling for John Cena. Playing it cool, and keeping his cool, Reigns responded by saying “Mr. Missionary” had already made an appearance.

The fact that Roman Reigns said it without breaking into a hilarious fit in itself is impressive. However, this new nickname may stick for a while, or at least until Roman Reigns and John Cena have had their match at SummerSlam 2021.

The story behind Roman Reigns, John Cena, and the missionary position

After John Cena returned, The Tribal Chief knew somebody had arrived who was a genuine threat to his position. He played it safe and immediately safeguarded himself by making a mockery of Cena and denying his challenge.

In the mockery, Roman Reigns compared The Invisible Man to the missionary position. Basically, he meant that Cena is boring, brings nothing interesting to the table, and there is no updating his gimmick.


Of course, John Cena isn’t the one who will back away from the game of witty words. Therefore, on SmackDown: July 30th, 2021, he addressed this comment. As per Cena, if anybody can make “missionary” interesting for two decades, it’s worth keeping them. Now, that’s the type of comeback the WWE Universe has been missing out on!
