SummerSlam took place a few days ago, one of the main events of the year for Vince McMahon's company. Given the return of the public in recent times, WWE wanted to give its fans a spectacular event full of surprises. In the event, we witnessed the return of Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar's leading level Superstars with The Beast Incarnate openly challenging WWE Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
Before SummerSlam, WWE President Tony Khan talked about the situation regarding the match between Roman Reigns and John Cena, with both of them having done a great job. Here are the statements to the microphones of Ariel Helwani of BT Sport from the president of the leading wrestling company in the world.
Tony Khan praises John Cena
"I think they both made the show great. What Roman has developed is the ability to be a masterful and fantastic Heel for television while John Cena is the classic hero who is as good as the Heel, in short, there is a contrast that everyone likes, that's why everyone in WWE has enjoyed the Main Event which saw John Cena vs Roman Reigns in opposition."
The two wrestlers told a fantastic feud and the SummerSlam match was highly praised by critics. While SmackDown is now increasingly established within the WWE it is often Monday Night Raw that is discussed and perhaps sometimes even criticized.
In this regard, Tony Khan wanted to break a lance in favor of the red show: “When you look at what's happening on Raw, I think people notice that growing wrestlers are more and more important and with all that they prove that both shows are truly impressive.
At SummerSlam, it's great that both SmackDown and Raw have major matches and the WWE Universe appreciates both." At this year's WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, John Cena made his return to WWE programming once again.
The Leader of the Cenation was back on television for the first time in months. He confronted Roman Reigns after his successful defense of the WWE Universal Championship against Edge at Money in the Bank. Upon his return, John Cena made it clear that he wanted to get his hands on his 17th world title and wanted to do so by taking the Universal Championship off Reigns.
After weeks of back-and-forth, Cena and Reigns finally squared off in the main event of an epic SummerSlam 2021 in Las Vegas.
