• Note Regarding John Cena’s In-Ring Return After Last Night’s SmackDown

In the opening segment of last night’s SmackDown, 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena challenged Roman Reigns to a Universal Championship match at SummerSlam 2021.

In the main event segment of the show, Reigns turned down Cena’s challenge and accepted Finn Balor’s challenge.

After SmackDown went off the air, Cena teamed up with The Mysterios (Dominik & Rey Mysterio) to defeat the team of Roman Reigns & SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos.

Reigns left the match in the middle, which led to the babyfaces pinning Usos to get the win.

You can watch it below:

This was Cena’s first match since the Firefly Fun House match at WrestleMania 36 last night.

However, this was Cena’s first proper in-ring match in front of the fans after 921 days. His last in-ring match was on the January 14, 2019 edition of RAW, where he was pinned by Finn Balor in a Fatal 4-Way match.
