The leader of the 'Cenation' made his presence felt after the main event clash between Roman Reigns and the 'Rated-R' Superstar Edge where the 'Big Dog' successfully retained his WWE Universal title. 

Meanwhile, John Cena made his way to the ring and stood face-to-face with Roman Reigns.  However, there was no physical provocation involved as John Cena just taunted Reigns with his signature 'You Can't See Me'  gesture.

As per reports, both John Cena and Roman Reigns may supposedly lock horns at Summerslam. However, it is unclear whether the WWE Universal Championship will on the line. This year's Summerslam is scheduled to take place on August 21 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. 

John Cena's last in-ring action dates back to April 2020 when he had faced Bray Wyatt 'The Fiend' in a Firefly Fun House match at Wrestlemania 36 which the 16-time world champion lost.

For the last few years, the 'Doctor of Thuganomics'  has been a part-time in-ring competitor due to his blossoming Hollywood career. He was last seen in the action film  'Fast & Furious 9' which also had Vin Diesel in the lead role.
