John Cena returned to challenge Roman Reigns

A primary reason for Cena’s return was to have someone on the roster who could challenge Reigns for the Universal Championship title and possibly win. Currently, Reigns is the top dog, and it wasn’t easy for WWE to convincingly put someone over against Roman Reigns using the pro-wrestlers from the current roster.

Undoubtedly, there are capable Superstars on the main roster. But, at this moment WWE needed to book Roman Reigns against a megastar. In fact, WWE had previously revealed that it wanted to make SummerSlam 2021 the biggest PPV of 2021, with Roman Reigns vs John Cena as the main event.

The Tribal Chief did not want to grand The Invisible Man a match

Initially, when Cena challenged for the title, Reigns denied. In fact, he allowed Finn Balor to challenge for the title.

During the SummerSlam contract signing segment, Reigns and Balor shared a brief war of words before Balor went ahead to sign the contract. At this moment, Baron Corbin interrupted and attacked Balor. Corbin has been suffering financially. And he wanted to challenge for the title. Before Corbin could sign, Cena entered the ring, put down Corbin, and signed the contract.

Can this happen? Maybe not. The contract had Finn Balor’s name on it. Did it happen? YES!
