After World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) legend John Cena suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Roman Reigns at WWE SummerSlam 2021, the leader of the Cenation will return at this week’s WWE Smackdown at Madison Square Garden. All eyes are going to be on Friday night in the week as Cena will make his introduction since losing to Reigns at SummerSlam. With the 16-time champion having had several face-offs over the past few weeks, it remains to be seen who is going to be John Cena’s next opponent.
According to Good Morning America, John Cena feels he still has much to give WWE fans. Nothing compares to being in the ring, surrounded by the WWE Universe and the intensity that they radiate, according to Cena.
“Unfortunately WWE doesn’t provide a silver. I feel I will be able to attempt to do the simplest I can until I feel I’m offending the buyer. There’s nothing just like the energy of therein ringing with the audience around. I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to try to do an entire lot of stuff. That energy is indescribable. That place is my home. I would not be who I’m without it. The audience is my family — I would like to be kind to them — I still feel good albeit I finished second so I still feel I even have something to contribute,” said John Cena.
John Cena announced earlier today that he will be leaving WWE for a spell, thanking the fans, Superstars, and WWE employees. According to reports, the “Summer of Cena” has come to an end, with the exception of one appearance at Madison Square Garden next month, branded “Super SmackDown.”
Cena has stolen Finn Balor’s Universal Championship chance, challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, and been defeated by Brock Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam 2021 in recent weeks. Here’s a look at the many options for Cena’s next opponent.
John Cena might battle Finn Balor on WWE SmackDown Live:
Finn Balor appears to be John Cena’s most likely next opponent, as the two appear to have some unresolved business. After signing the contract on a WWE SmackDown broadcast instead of Balor, the sixteen-time champion stole his chance at the Universal Championship. If Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar does take place at Crown Jewel, Cena and Balor might make for a compelling contest. Crown Jewel is set to be released in October 2021.
John Cena and Brock Lesnar could have a face-off :
Both John Cena and Brock Lesnar have been announced for this week’s WWE SmackDown, so the two pro wrestling legends might face off. After Cena’s grueling encounter against Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WWE SummerSlam, Lesnar assaulted him. With the match between Reigns and Lesnar set for Crown Jewel, Cena may face The Beast Incarnate at WWE Extreme Rules.
John Cena could face Roman Reigns once again
Since John Cena and Roman Reigns had a close bout at WWE SummerSlam, it’s probable that the Cenation’s leader may want a rematch against The Head of The Table. Cena gave the Universal Champion three attitude modifications, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Reigns. Reigns finished the battle with a vicious spear to extend his year-long reign as Universal Champion.
