Immediately then, Roman Reigns’ music hit and he came out to confront the 16 time champion. Both of them traded verbal jabs at each other before being interrupted by The Miz.
Both Cena and Reigns looked ready for a high profile clash when The Miz, Maryse and the Miztourage interrupted. After a series of verbal attacks, the one they call Super ‘Cena’ and the one with the Superman Punch, Roman Reigns teamed up in a tag match. They fought in the main event against The Miz and Samoa Joe.
Tensions boiled over on Twitter
Tensions had been simmering between the two since a month. A twitter battle ensued where Reigns dared Cena to come to His Yard (Raw) and find out who the better man is. This tension seemed palpable on Monday Night Raw as none of the powerhouses were willing to relent.
However, this was not the first time that these two have teased a potential fight. Back in June, Cena had said on his Twitter account that he wanted to prove Roman wrong.
