Roman Reigns Refuses To Accept John Cena’s SummerSlam Challenge, Reigns vs. Balor Set


During this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns revealed that he’s not interested in facing John Cena at SummerSlam. During the opening segment, Paul Heyman came down to ringside on behalf of Reigns and promised to answer Cena by the end of the night.

Later in the show, Finn Balor defeated Sami Zayn in a match stemming from Balor’s return last week and assault of Zayn.

Cut to the end of the show, when Reigns came out with Heyman and accused John Cena of doing a nostalgia act. Reigns said that he can’t see him, doesn’t want to see him, doesn’t need to see him, and has no desire to see him, and said that he would not be facing him at SummerSlam.

That brought out Balor, who said that if Reigns wasn’t interested in Cena’s challenge, maybe he was interested in one from Balor. Reigns conferred with Heyman as the crowd chanted “Roman’s scared” and then accepted the match.

As of this writing, no date has been set for the Reigns vs. Balor match but it won’t be happening at SummerSlam as the current plans have Cena vs. Reigns main eventing WWE’s second biggest pay-per-view of the year.
