The live crowd present at Money in the Bank 2021 in Texas gave a thunderous pop to the returning John Cena, who made his highly-awaited, monumental WWE return post Roman Reigns' dramatic main event match against Edge for his Universal Championship. As his The Shield mate Seth Rollins' surprise assist led to The Tribal Chief retaining his title, Roman's celebrations were short-lived as John rained on his parade. When the champ lifted his championship, Cena replied with his trademark 'You Can't See Me' taunt.

During this week's Monday Night Raw, John, as a free agent, explained his motivation to finally return to his wrestling home. In a passionate opening promo with the WWE Universe present in the audience eating out of the palm of his hands, The Suicide Squad star made his intentions crystal clear; he wanted to challenge Reigns for his Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2021. This doesn't come as a major shock to WWE fans as rumours of the eagerly anticipated SummerSlam bout had been ongoing for weeks. This time, however, we have confirmation!

Cena revealed how it was thanks to the WWE Universe being back as live crowds, with the end of ThunderDome, and Mr. Reigns himself that his WWE return happened. While one would assume that the Cenation leader is back to achieve a record 17th championship win, John explained that the reason for going after The Head of the Table was simply "because Roman Reigns is an a*shole," ripping apart his The Tribal Chief persona with some trash talk. Cena exclaimed, "This pathetic Roman Reigns experience has gone on long enough!"

Nothing’s different. #AndStill #MITB" On the other hand, When USA Network's official Twitter handle asked Paul Heyman, "Hey, @HeymanHustle we know you work Fridays... But comment? #WWERaw," to which Reigns' manager replied, "As #SpecialCounsel to the #TribalChief @WWERomanReigns, I invite your network to watch this Friday for our perspective on @JohnCena’s actions, words ... Hmmmmmmm...... .. and perhaps, just PERHAPS, more???"
