Might as well get this one out of the way right off the bat. WWE’s “free agent” Cena has declared himself ready for competition on either show. Now that we know his situation, maybe a co-branded pay per view is the best time for him to put his money where his mouth is.

We’ve already agreed that Roman Reigns is one of the top stars for the Raw brand. After he inevitably trounces Rusev in their Flag Match at Battleground, Cena will need some new competition at SummerSlam. Why not Reigns?

It’s basically common knowledge at this point that Roman Reigns is next in line to be “the guy.” Right now, for better or worse, John Cena still holds that title in WWE. If a true passing of the torch type of moment is ever going to happen, SummerSlam is as good a time as any. The match could be built up as the big deal that it is without too much work on WWE’s part.

And think about this: Reigns and Cena have never faced each other in a one on one bout. Never. Not once. Don’t believe me? WWE posted an article on their website not too long ago about six superstars John Cena has never faced. The top of that list? Roman Reigns.

And Cena himself has hinted that he’s game to go up against Roman. The above tweet seems to indicate he’s ready right now. Will the “dream match” happen?
