Roman Reigns vs. John Cena for the Universal championship is the kind of match that sells itself, and WWE is headlining SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada with it. But, hey, why not raise the stakes just as much as they can?
During Friday Night SmackDown this week, Reigns decided to throw in quite the nugget — if he loses his title to Cena, he will leave WWE. There is almost zero chance he loses, and even less chance that he would leave WWE, but it’s the kind of stipulation WWE has no problem throwing around for the sake of trying to make a big match feel even bigger.
And, hey, they needed something to try to steal a headline or two while one of the biggest stories of the year was happening over on TNT.
The SummerSlam card is now fully official, like it or lump it. We’ll see you tomorrow night!
