Ever since Cena made his triumphant return at MITB, the fans have been wondering if he is back for good? Is he going to stick around? The answer to these questions lies with Mr. Cena and he has been successful in keeping it under wraps.

Cena then appeared the following night on Monday Night Raw. While addressing the crowd he made a statement saying that “this is not a one-night thing.” Upon hearing this, the audience just went crazy.

The WWE Universe knows Cena is back to get the Universal title and become the only person to be a 17-time World Champion. The match is most likely to happen at SummerSlam, but WWE creative team is in no mood to rush the storyline.

John Cena wants to keep his plans in a suspense

Speaking with Rich Eisen on The Rich Eisen Show, Cena was asked about his plans for SummerSlam and beyond and how will he carry this feud forward. The Cenation leader gracefully said that it is not in his hands.

He later added that he cannot demand a title shot unless the titleholder [Roman Reigns] wants it.

Cena said, “That’s not up to me. That’s up to the WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns. I went on Monday Night Raw and issued a challenge and kinda said like ‘Hey! I’m here for this’, but I can’t just jump in front of the line without the guy who holds the championship saying ‘It’s okay’. So Friday on SmackDown he’s more than likely going to have some explaining to do.”

The WWE Universe knows that Roman and John are going to fight at some point. At first, the fans thought it would happen at the Biggest Party of the Summer. However, now that Finn Balor is in the mix, the feud is getting more interesting.

WWE recently announced that John Cena will attend the SmackDown in Madison Square Garden after the SummerSlam PPV. We’ll just have to wait and see how will that turn out.
