Wrestlemania season is approaching towards us, quickly. With Royal Rumble to be hosted on January 28th, it is just a matter of time that the storylines for the ‘show of shows’ will be kicked off, sooner. That leads us to the main event matches which will be selling out the show from New Orleans, Louisiana. So, the franchise players of the company will be heading to grab the spotlight.
With that being said, the speculations are quite high that in which capacity John Cena will be seen in the next edition of Wrestlemania. For the past few years, he has not been part of the main event match since Roman Reigns has reserved that. However, the latest reports suggest that he might receive it back.
The previous reports suggested a ‘Big Match John’ might be challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the grandest stage of them all. However, Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer Newsletter suggested this match is not happening. We have seen this match for multiple times, already which might not garner the needed attention.
Instead, Meltzer reported that WWE officials are planning a huge match for the poster boy of the company. The superstar to be pitted against him was not disclosed at this time. The possibilities were revealed in a report by stillrealtous.com,
“The Undertaker, Batista, Hulk Hogan, and Goldberg were all mentioned, but not all of those are a possibility. Another name that isn’t much of a possibility is The Rock, as he keeps talking about how booked his calendar is even requiring him to rethink a presidential run in 2020 due to everything he’s slated to do. But never say never in WWE.”
It is evident that if John Cena does not go after either of the prime titles present on Raw or Smackdown, then a huge superstar will be pitted against him so the level can match up to the main event on April 8th.
WWE Raw will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on January 2nd in New York where there will be galore of WWE superstars from present or past. Just after six days of the evening will receive the annual Royal Rumble event. It is likely that a hint will be dropped about Cena’s Wrestlemania opponent on one of these shows.
