Roman Reigns and John Cena confrontation

Since The Invisible Man is back, a SmackDown episode will be incomplete without a showdown between Roman Reigns and John Cena.

There may not be a match, but there will be some amount of confrontation. It’s possible WWE will reserve all types of physical bouts for SummerSlam. Moreover, the speculation or the type of match for SummerSlam could be decided on SmackDown.

Currently, Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso are the WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions. The Blood Line is strong with The Usos as tag team champions and Reigns as The Universal Champion.

However, The Mysterios could make an appearance in a segment with The Usos to challenge them for a rematch, or there could be a rematch at SmackDown itself.
