John Cena is the new WWE champion after securing his 15th term at the top of WWE. Even though 'The Face of the WWE' may have only just grabbed his title back, he will have to fight for his life again soon when he takes on three other wrestlers in defence of his crown.

Seth Rollins was the man to win out in the Money in the Bank contract ladder match, and as a result of this he will be able to challenge for the WWE title whenever he wants, but that doesn't mean he will be a part of Cena's first defense.

Rather, it will be a Fatal Four Way that determines John Cena's fate, with Randy Orton, Kane and Roman Reigns all going head to head with the new champ at Battleground pay-per-view July 20.

How Cena reigned supreme again

The final match of Money in the Bank saw John Cena lift the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Cena climbed the ladder and took the title before staring down the Authority who were not happy at ringside.

Roman Reigns was impressive throughout the match, but ultimately it was the ladder match veterans in Randy Orton and John Cena who were most impressive, and Cena now has the title and all the plaudits that come with it.

Cena has been champion before

John Cena has been a WWE champion before, having won it on 14 occasions before his 15th triumph at Money in the Bank. Labelled 'The Face of the WWE,' Cena at the top of the pile so many times that most WWE fans may have lost count.

But he's good value for fans and has been a big fans favorite ever since his debut in 1999. His win at Money in the Bank was warmly received by fans, but The Authority haven't wasted their time in trying to dethrone the star straightaway.

WWE sent this tweet out this week announcing Cena's next challenge.
"JUST ANNOUNCED: ‪@JohnCena‬ defends his ‪@WWE‬ W.H.Title vs. ‪@RandyOrton‬, ‪@KaneWWE‬ & ‪@WWERomanReigns‬ in ‪#FatalFourWay‬ at ‪#WWEBattleground‬! ‪#RAW‬"
