WWE RAW Results (7/20) – Dallas, Texas – We are live from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, as John Cena makes his way to the ring to start the show.
John comments on a fan’s sign in the front row who came to see John Cena. John says he misses you and he misses this. He says he loves the confusion and the chaos and he says everyone is loud. He says the biggest superstar in WWE is the WWE Universe and John says everyone knows what that means. He says we ain’t just loud tonight, we are deafening loud. Tonight is electric. John says tonight is a team effort. John says he will wear the Peacemaker outfit to the premiere of Suicide Squad and he is also here to explain what happened last night.
John says he ruined the celebration of Roman Reigns last night. Roman was angry, Paul was confused, and there are a lot of questions.
Who brought John back to the WWE? It was you guys. We can come back and cheer and boo together with people who love this. Who brought him back? It was you. It was Roman Reigns. What am I here for? The Universal Championship. When? In five weeks at SummerSlam. Where? In Las Vegas. Why? I could stand here and talk about the pageantry of SummerSlam and being in the main event in a packed event. He could talk about a record breaking 17th championship. He says it is because Roman is an asshole and needs to be knocked down a peg. This pathetic Roman Reigns experience has gone on long enough. Roman is an arrogant self absorbed gimmick who is not as over as he thinks he is.
John says if you are good, people will acknoweldge you. If you are great, they tell you. I am telling you that I will be at Smackdown and I can’t wait to see you there.
