#5 John Cena defeats Roman Reigns clean
It would be unlike John Cena to return to the company, defeat Roman Reigns clean and leave with the Universal Championship. This would be a very unpopular decision, but it could also ensure that the title is held by a mainstream Hollywood star. For John Cena to carry the title to say Comic Cons, or DC Universe appearances, or even interviews, would bring a lot of new eyeballs to the product.
Would it diminish all the hard work that’s been put into Roman Reigns over the last few months? The answer is yes, but it would also be a loss to John Cena, who is arguably the greatest of all time. A loss to Cena does not really derail your momentum unless you are Bray Wyatt or Rusev.
Roman Reigns will be just fine. That said, this may not be the best-case scenario, especially with the way that things stand right now.
#4 Big E cashes in on John Cena
So, let’s assume that John Cena defeats Roman Reigns. He beats Ric Flair’s record, which may certainly be the case since the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer is no longer with the company at this point.
And when it looks like John Cena will step away and take the Universal Championship to Hollywood with him, Big E cashes in his contract! Meanwhile, Roman Reigns could step out of the title picture for a bit while Big E picks up a few wins, to battle Finn Balor.
#3 Baron Corbin cashes in his contract on Roman Reigns, the decision is reversed
Could Roman Reigns be on the verge of picking up a win, when Baron Corbin cashes in his stolen contract?
We could have a false finish, where Baron Corbin celebrates in the middle of the ring; only to eat finishers from both Roman Reigns and John Cena.
Imagine the disappointment of the crowd if they think that Corbin has actually swerved us all. And then being told by Adam Cole or Sonya Deville that the decision has been reversed!
#2 Big E cashes in on Roman Reigns ending his reign
Let’s assume Roman Reigns defeats John Cena. As he celebrates in the middle of the ring, Big E’s music hits as he cashes in on The Tribal Chief. It could start a feud that lasts all the way until Survivor Series 2021, as Reigns plots and ploys to get his Championship back!
It makes more sense for Big E to cash in on Roman Reigns once he’s exhausted after the match of his life, because it just makes things more personal, going forward. Imagine the immense heat!
#1 Roman Reigns defeats John Cena clean
John Cena has come back to WWE to give the active roster the rub. Riddle even spoke about getting the rub from John Cena and Randy Orton’s reaction to the same in the video that’s been linked right above.
This is why the Roman Reigns vs. John Cena match could conclude with the latter putting the WWE Universal Champion over by suffering a loss in the middle of the ring. It would give Roman Reigns bragging rights for many months!
