It was a really shocking decision from WWE when they announced that Roman Reigns will be facing John Cena at No Mercy instead of saving this match for a bigger PPV.
What is even more surprising is the realistic promos the two have been cutting on each other since past couple of weeks in which Cena has been getting the upper hand.
This has made people wonder if the company is punishing Roman Reigns or if their long term plans to make him the face of the company have changed.
During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer shot down these rumors and said that the long term plans for the Big Dog are still to make him the top babyface of the company.
It’s worth mentioning here that it has previously been reported that the reason why John Cena was brought to Raw was to give a rub to Roman Reigns. So even when Reigns appears to be losing the verbal battle, it shouldn’t be a surprise if he wins their match at No Mercy.
