Cena & Reigns: War of words

Cena & Reigns: War of words

WWE is laying the groundwork for what will likely be an outstanding match at the upcoming No Mercy event. John Cena and Roman Reigns are arguably two of the biggest Superstars in the company right now, despite neither man currently holding a championship. If the war of words that happened on Raw on August 29 is an indicator of what's still to come, we're in for something special.

I don't want to jump on the bandwagon, but I'm going to. Cena's performance during that promo Monday night was some of his best work. It's been said before, and we'll say it again, the best promos or characters or storylines are those that are derived from real life circumstances. In my 1-2-3 cents, John Cena was simply saying what most wrestling fans are thinking. Simply put, Roman Reigns must step up his game on the mic and in the ring to clearly hit that next level.

I like Reigns. But I liked him more when he was the strong, silent member of the Shield. I still haven't been sold on him feeling Cena's shoes as THE Guy of the WWE. The potential is there, but there's still something missing. I do like the cockiness he continues to exhibit in being the guy who retired the Undertaker. Will Cena be the next legendary current-roster Superstar the Big Dog takes a bit out of? We'll keep watching this buildup and the fallout here on the My 1-2-3 Cents blog as well as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
