Cena returned to WWE on Sunday at Money in the Bank, looking across the ring at Reigns following Roman's successful WWE Universal Title defense against Edge. Cena made the "You can't see me gesture" at Reigns, who stood stoically as Cena played to the crowd.
Michael Cole had a ringside seat for the confrontation and he can't wait to see the two square off at SummerSlam.
"One of the reasons I'm really excited about what's going happen these next five weeks leading up to SummerSlam; you've got the greatest of this time, Roman Reigns, and the greatest of all-time, John Cena and they are now meeting in what seems like the perfect moment," Cole said in an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. "The universe is aligning. WWE fans are back. The excitement is back. Roman Reigns is the uber heel, the most dominant man and he knows it. John Cena is coming back as the old babyface that he was. It's going to be this unbelievable meeting of these two great individuals in the main event and we get to be part of that. What's cool is that you [McAfee] and I get to sit there and we are so adamant about who we support in this match. We're supposed to be unbiased, but I'm a John Cena guy, you're a Roman Reigns guy. It's going to lead to a really interesting debate over these next couple of weeks. Can Cena win his 17th (World Title), beat Ric Flair's (number of 16 World Titles) and cement his legacy as the greatest of all time? Will Roman Reigns slay another legend? There are so many rich storylines and layers to this show. Where does Paul Heyman fit in all of this? You can't write a better scenario."
WWE has not confirmed the bout between Cena vs. Reigns for SummerSlam.
Cena is set to kick off Monday's episode of WWE Raw.
