WWE continues to book big matches at smaller PPVs compared to its more bigger events like Survivor Series, Royal Rumble or WrestleMania 34.

The company has already booked John Cena vs. Roman Reigns for the upcoming No Mercy PPV happening in late September.

John Cena and Roman Reigns are two of the biggest stars in the WWE today and they are facing each other next month already.

In my opinion, it seems as if they are pulling the trigger far too early for this match. This is a type of match that should have been saved for WrestleMania 34.

The only reason this is annoying me is because the rumored WrestleMania 34 main event match looks underwhelming. It's rumored that the main event will be Brock Lesnar vs.

Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. This is match we already saw at WrestleMania 31. In my opinion, Cena vs Reigns is the bigger match.

It's also worth mentioning that on Raw, the build up for the match is already heating up. Cena called out Reigns for lacking the ability to cut good promos.

Cena also said that he is better as a part-timer than Reigns is as a full-timer. The storyline and the match itself is something that is worthy of a bigger stage than No Mercy.

The only reason I can think of that WWE is booking this match so early is that Cena might not be available during WrestleMania season. Cena is slowly getting more roles in Hollywood so maybe that's why WWE is pulling the trigger on this match so early.

If Cena is still available to wrestle at WrestleMania 34, then it's odd that they are scheduling this match already.
