Roman Reigns and John Cena have had a good feud that was based on some great promos by the 16-time world champion. He was really impressive on the mic as he cut down Roman on any given chance that he had. In the end, they have faced for the first time at the No Mercy PPV on Sunday with The Big Dog winning the battle of the two most polarizing superstars that wrestling world has ever seen.
This was a bit surprising. The first thing we learned is that this is probably going to be the end of the feud, at least for now. There was a decisive winner, and Cena looked like he was going to take a break after this match. It was a decent battle that was full of the near falls and kicking out of finishers.
The way Roman was booked here, there is almost no doubt that he is going to be the one to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 33. It is almost a done deal. He kicked out of four AAs, including a Super AA from the top rope and two consecutive Attitude Adjustments that Cena gave to him. In the end, one Spear was enough to put down John and finish this match. That right there tells us that WWE wanted to make Roman look really strong, probably for Brock Lesnar.
A couple of months ago there were reports that Roman was going to win the IC title and enter Wrestlemania 33 in early April as the champion, making his battle with Lesnar a title-for-title duel. Well, he was on the Miz TV on Monday Night Raw so we can maybe expect that he is going to be the one to take the belt of the A-Lister. Those are the main things that we learned from Reigns vs. Cena blockbuster matchup.
