John Cena returning was important for Roman Reigns

The WWE Hall of Famer is convinced this was the only way forward for Roman Reigns, The Universal Champion. Otherwise, there wasn’t anyone else on the roster to book him against.

“John Cena made a return to confront Roman Reigns and we’ve been asking the question over the last couple of weeks,  ‘Who’s left for Roman Reigns? Whose left on the race? He’s cleaned out the division, that’s pretty much what we’ve been saying. Boom!’ John Cena pops up now. “

Booker T leaves the WWE Universe with a piece of advice

While he understands that critics have their own point of view, he knows the type of impact the Superstars from Attitude Era have on the audience. Therefore, it’s important to embrace their return.
