WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view saved its biggest surprise for last, as after Roman Reigns took down Edge (with some help from Seth Rollins) and a staredown occurred between the two, we saw one of WWE’s biggest stars make his long-awaited return. That would be John Cena, and after his music hit, he made his way to the ring and celebrated with the crowd, much to Reigns’ dismay. While he didn’t launch into a promo during the televised event, he did deliver a quick promo to the live crowd, thanking all the fans and talking about how good it was to b back. You can watch it in the video below.
Cena started off by thanking the WWE superstars who put their bodies on the line to entertain the fans, and then said how good it was to see the WWE Universe again.

“As always I want to thank all the WWE superstars for putting their lives and bodies on the line to entertain all of you most importantly, Cena said. “I’ve missed you guys. I’ve really, really missed you guys so as much as I’m grateful and thankful for them, man I love you guys, and I really really missed you, and thank you so much for being here”.
He then says something but it’s hard to make out, but it sounds like “thank you for coming through for everybody in here!”

It had been heavily rumored that Cena would face Reigns at SummerSlam, and now that very much seems like the plan. Whether Cena will be the one to dethrone him remains to be seen, but all we know is we cannot wait for next Friday to find out.
