WWE's RAW exclusive pay-per-view No Mercy is only a couple of weeks away, and the match card is shaping up to be an awesome one.
Not only do we have an amazing Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman, but this week on RAW, a first-time ever match between John Cena and Roman Reigns was confirmed for the show as well.
The promo between The Leader of the Cenation and The Big Dog has been one of the biggest discussion points amongst WWE fans this week because of how it transpired, with Reigns forgetting his lines and Cena calling him out on it. Reigns also pointed out how he kept the company going while Cena is a part-timer.

Whether it was scripted or not, Cena reflected on this and the fact Reigns has been struggling to get over with the fans by saying at the end of his promo: "I can do this part-time better than you can ever do this full-time."
The promo went down so well with the WWE universe that for one of the first times in a long time, the company released the promo, uncut and in its entirety on YouTube. Fans will just be hoping now that the match itself at No Mercy will be just as good as build towards this clash. The 16-time World Champion has extended the dissing on his own Instagram account.
On his Instagram account earlier this week, Cena posted a picture of a classic rap CD single by Nas for the song “Ether". WWE confirmed in a video this week that the post was in reference to a diss track by Nas in 2001 where he completely slaughtered Jay Z during the feud between the two rappers.
No Mercy doesn't take place until September 24, so we still have a couple more RAWs to digest before we finally see The Leader of the Cenation and The Big Dog go to battle in the middle of the ring, a match that arguably should be taking place at WrestleMania, rather than a B-rated show.
If this week is anything to go by, the promos for Cena vs Reigns between now and the pay-per-view are going to be awesome and unmissable.
