If it wasn't clear before, it sure is now. Roman Reigns is the new face of WWE. John Cena raised Roman Reigns’ arm following their No Mercy match in which Reigns came out victorious.
Following this Cena took a moment to take in the WWE audiences reaction, almost looking as if he was contemplating retiring from the ring, of course, that remains to be seen.
As for Reigns, he's on a high since his big win which no doubt infuriate his critics. In fact today the Big Dog has a message for the WWE Universe:
“Whether u exchange harsh words or harsh blows, u don’t leave a fighter w/o respect for a warrior. Respect for past, present, & hopefully future.”
