John Cena & Roman Reigns' war of words

Click next to continue with our WWE No Mercy preview. It's a WrestleMania-worthy match that's closing a non-Big Four show, so look for it to deliver on a grand scale. Fans can tune in an hour early for the kickoff show, in which Elias and Apollo Crews will brawl it out to hype up the event.

When it comes to the match itself I don't see Jason Jordan walking out with that Intercontinental Championship just yet. Titus Worldwide has stalled since Akira Tozawa lost the Cruiserweight Championship at SummerSlam for some reason, and a Crews loss here could start a little introspective storyline.

Finn Balor beat Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam but the Eater of Worlds has a score to settle with the Demon in LA.

On top of that, The Miz, while being loved by many, is still overlooked at times when speaking about his wrestling ability. Amore later competed in a six man tag team match.

For the past few years Roman Reigns has been pushed as the new face of the WWE, but fans haven't quite accepted his position. If it's Cena's and about how he's starting to ride off into the Hollywood sunset-and it shouldn't be, not yet-then Reigns should win first. I do know Roman hasn't won a pay per view match in a long time and I can't see a reason that they would bring Cena over to Raw just to have Reigns lose.

Cena's responded by bringing up Reigns' suspension for failing a drug test a year ago and how the fans constantly boo him despite being the recipient of many big pushes from WWE.

So, I guess this means that there is a chance that Braun Strowman will win the Universal Championship on Sunday night. In the latest episode of WWE Raw, the former tag team champions left with a win after defeating the champions and Gallows and Anderson. Raw General Manager Kurt Angle chose to make it up to the Miz by finding him a challenger. Jason Jordan's showings on Raw in recent weeks have been outstanding, in my opinion. This makes a ton of sense, considering that Miz has been insulting Jordan and Angle for weeks beforehand.

Roman Reigns has been running his mouth since he defeated the Undertaker at #WrestleMania, and now the veteran John Cena looks to teach the Big Dog a lesson. This will probably be another instance where Jordan has a great showing, but can't get the job done.

In a newly added match as far as odds are concerned Neville is favored at -300 to retain the Cruiserweight Championship against Enzo Amore. The division does need a reboot, and now's the best time to do it if you want to make a new star. Or a Roman Reigns push where he gets shoved down our throats while we protest. I, frankly, have no idea whether Enzo is capable of rising to the occasion in this one, but if he can, it might be a big step toward people taking him seriously - which, at this point, they don't seem to.
