There already had been rumors that John Cena could have a match with Roman Reigns in the near future. While doing a Twitter Q&A this past weekend, the 16-time world champion increased speculation that the two WWE stars could soon have a feud with one another.

Cena was asked about the possibility of working with Reigns, and he made it clear that he wants a shot at the new face of WWE.

Reigns has been calling WWE his “yard” ever since he defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33. He joined Brock Lesnar as the only other wrestler to earn a win against the Deadman at WWE’s biggest yearly pay-per-view, furthering the notion that Reigns has replaced Cena as the company’s No.1 full-time star.

Cena works more dates than a part-time performer like Lesnar, but his days as a full-time member of the roster appear to be over. He’s set to make his WWE return on July 4 with an appearance on “SmackDown Live,” having not been seen on WWE TV since WrestleMania 33 when he teamed up with Nikki Bella to defeat The Miz and Maryse.

Once a staple in the main event of WrestleMania, Cena’s match was further down on the card in 2017, as it has been in each of the last few years. He last fought in the final match of WrestleMania in 2013 when he defeated The Rock for the WWE Championship, and Cena hasn’t main evented SummerSlam since he lost to Lesnar three years ago.

Reigns has fought in the main event of WrestleMania in each of the last three years, having matches with the likes of The Undertaker, Triple H and Lesnar. Perhaps both Reigns and Cena will close out SummerSlam 2017, facing each other in a match that would be big enough to be the main event of WrestleMania.

It will be much easier to have an idea of what WWE has planned for Reigns’ immediate future after the Great Balls of Fire PPV on July 9. Reigns will have his rubber match against Braun Strowman, and the winner will likely go on to face Lesnar for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam on Aug. 20. A loss for Reigns could signal that he’s slated to face Cena at SummerSlam instead of WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, which could also be the site of what seems to be an inevitable match.

Reigns has been a part of the “Monday Night Raw” roster ever since last year’s brand split. Cena was drafted by “SmackDown Live” a year ago, and no mention of his status was made during April’s Superstar Shake-up. WWE has been advertising Cena as a “free agent” ahead of his return, and while it’s uncertain exactly what that means, it does open the door for him to face a “Monday Night Raw” wrestler like Reigns at an upcoming PPV.

Reigns is the only member of The Shield that Cena has yet to feud with since the faction split. Cena fought Seth Rollins for both the WWE Championship and The United States Championship in 2015. He faced Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship at No Mercy in October.
