John Cena pokes fun at Roman Reigns for failing a drug test
This week’s episode of RAW kicked off with Roman Reigns versus Jason Jordan. Reigns won the match but it took him around twenty minutes. John Cena defeated Jordan last week on RAW, but Reigns made fun of Cena for taking over twenty minutes to defeat Jordan. Cena came down to the ring after the match tonight for a promo with Roman Reigns.
During the promo, Reigns bragged about ticket sales and the revenue he brings in. Reigns claimed that WWE doesn’t need Cena anymore and that Cena needs WWE because he cannot break into Hollywood. Cena then got in Reigns’ face and said “at No Mercy, consider me like a drug test homes, you ain’t getting passed me”. Roman Reigns was suspended for violating WWE’s Wellness Policy in July of 2016.
John Cena will face Roman Reigns at WWE No Mercy on September 24th.
