Numerous sources have previously reported that Cena will headline SummerSlam 2021 against Roman Reigns. Since then, it has been announced that Cena will be filming “Argylle” in Europe come August, which potentially put WWE return plans in jeopardy.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that John Cena vs Roman Reigns is locked in for the main event of SummerSlam.
