Much like he did on RAW, Cena once again started his segment in the ring by praising the crowd, playing up the fact that a live crowd is finally back before he launched into a tirade against Reigns. He continued to taunt “The Tribal Chief,” saying that no one really likes his title run and that SmackDown has “sucked” ever since he won the belt.

As he once again called out Reigns for a match at SummerSlam, Paul Heyman who made his way out to the ramp, and he told Cena that Reigns wouldn’t be coming out just because Cena told him to. Instead, Heyman said, Cena would get an answer to his title match request whenever Reigns was ready to show him that “The Tribal Chief” is here.
