WWE SmackDown results: Live recap, grades as SummerSlam foes John Cena and Roman Reigns come face-to-face

Bizar Male

As SummerSlam draws near, so too does the universal championship bout between champion Roman Reigns and challenger John Cena. The two men will come face-to-face at SmackDown on Friday night from the Bok Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Cena made his intention to face Reigns clear when he confronted “The Tribal Chief” after Reigns’ win over Edge at Money in the Bank. Reigns refused to grant Cena the opportunity, instead opting to face Finn Balor at SummerSlam. After chaos at the contract signing for Reigns vs. Balor, Cena was able to grab the contract and sign his own name in Balor’s place.

Contract law not applying in the world of WWE, officials declared that Cena’s move had made the match legitimate and Reigns vs. Cena for the universal championship was set, despite protests from Reigns and Paul Heyman.

Now, Reigns will be in the same place as Cena once again — and that rarely works out for people who have upset the champion.

CBS Sports will be with you all night with recaps and highlights of all the action from Bok Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
