Summerslam's possible main event?
Summerslam will be held in Las Vegas on August 21, 2021. The main event has been rumored for a Roman Reigns vs John Cena. According to Wrestlevotes Twitter account and many wrestling community writers confirm that the main event will happen.
John Cena is currently filming a TV series "Peacemaker." It is possible that he may be complete by mid-July. However, will Cena be conditioned to wrestle in the ring? Cena's last appearance on WWE was at WrestleMania 36 in a Firefly Fun House. Previous to the taping, Cena last wrestled on January 14, 2019 when he lost in a Fatal-4-Way match on Monday Night Raw. Cena lost to Roman Reigns at the WWE Elimination Chamber 2018. So, to have Cena in the picture would be a huge storyline to create. The Head of the Table, Roman Reigns, against Cena Nation that once was the face of WWE. How else can they both clash for Summerslam?
Cena does have another movie to film called "The Janson Directive" in which it is in pre-production. Cena's appearance may be short lived. However, it would be nice to see Cena win and break Ric Flair's record to become a 17-time World Champion.
After speaking to a few sources on the topic, I’ve learned that WWE is 100% attempting to make SummerSlam this year’s WrestleMania. “All resources will be tapped into” is how it was explained to me. I do believe they want Reigns v Cena to headline. Not sure if they’ve decided.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) June 9, 2021
