Taking to the mic in the ring, Cena began by praising the live crowd, getting them to do some screaming to show off how loud they can be. Cena then said that he’s missed the WWE Universe and began to break down the “who, what, where, when, and why” as to his return. As for the “who”, Cena simply said that he was there for the crowd, as he wanted to be back with the WWE Universe. Of course, he also came back for the person he interrupted last night at Money in the Bank, Roman Reigns.

Cena then went on to say that what he’s doing back has to do with the WWE Universal Championship, and Cena made it fairly clear that he intends to take on Reigns WWE’s Summerslam pay-per-view. Finally, the “why” was a simple answer as well, as Cena called Reigns an “assh—“ before saying that he was an “arrogant, self-absorbed, overhyped, overprotected, overexposed gimmick” of a superstar. Cena said that Reigns wasn’t as “over” as he says he is, and that this week on SmackDown, he’ll be there to confront the champion directly.
