WWE officially announced on SmackDown that Roman Reigns will put the Universal Championship on the line against John Cena at SummerSlam.
Reigns denied Cena the opportunity to challenge the Universal Championship at SummerSlam on last week’s episode of SmackDown, with Finn Balor then appearing to challenge the Head of The Table himself.
Reigns agreed to face Balor at SummerSlam, and the competitors were set to sign the contract on this week’s episode of Smackdown.
Reigns was in the ring to sign a contract for his match with Finn Balor, but Baron Corbin attacked him, hoping to sign his own name on the dotted line.
Corbin would fail in this endeavour, as Cena came to the ring to help Balor, but he also saw an opening to get the match he wanted with Reigns. John Cena would then sign his own name on the contract to make the main event of SummerSlam official on August 21st.
