Roman Reigns has been dominating WWE for half a decade, and we’ve only scratched the surface of his greatness. The Tribal Chief has had an excellent 2021, a career best year for him. However, the coming months could throw up some surprise opponents, including one of the greatest of all time.

Roman Reigns will probably defend his Universal Championship against sixteen-time World Champion John Cena. We haven’t seen Cena wrestle for more than a year, but a match with Reigns would pique interests in a jiffy. Not to mention rumors of a dream WrestleMania match with his cousin, The Rock are also doing the rounds.

But the Tribal Chief cannot focus on Cena or Rock right now, especially with a huge match at Hell in a Cell against another former World Champion in Rey Mysterio on the horizon. But in an interview with ESPN’s SportsNation, Reigns issued a warning to Cena and The Rock.

“Yeah, that is a dream for a lot of our fans, but it ain’t a dream of his, you know what I mean? I get a lot of this with both Dwayne and John. These guys are doing very well for themselves, there’s no question about it.”

“If I were these guys, I don’t know if I’d wanna come back and deal with me. I am a problem right now for everybody. If I were them, I’d stay on set and keep pumping out these streaming service movies. Don’t come to my ring… is what I would do.”

Huge Hell in a Cell match coming up for Reigns

For the ninth consecutive PPV, Roman Reigns will defend his WWE Universal Championship. This will be the second year in a row that Reigns defends his title inside the cell, and the third overall. In his entire career, Reigns has taken part in four cell matches and emerged victorious in four of them.

His opponent inside the dangerous structure is Rey Mysterio. This rivalry began when Reigns interfered in Rey and Dominik’s title defense against the Usos. He destroyed Dominik and Rey, which led to the masked legend to seek revenge. And boy did he seek it, as he and his son peppered Reigns with kendo stick shots.

Unfortunately, the shots only angered Reigns, who destroyed Dominik once again by powerbombing him over the ropes and onto the floor. Now, Rey has added impetus to destroy Reigns inside the cell and win the Universal Title. However, with Cena potentially on the horizon, one can place a safe bet on Reigns winning.
