John Cena is currently without a WrestleMania opponent. He was supposed to battle Lars Sullivan, but he never made his main roster debut. Since then, Sullivan has dropped off the radar only to appear on social media to tease something that never materializes.
On SmackDown Live last night, Samoa Joe threw a dig at John Cena after winning the United States Title. He said that R-Truth was a fool for seeing Cena as his hero.
Ringside News has been told that the working idea in WWE right now is to place Samoa Joe with John Cena at WrestleMania. This is a match that WWE has held off on for a while and it looks like Mania is the right time for it.
Nothing is definite until it appears on television and then it can be changed with one appearance from Vince McMahon. However, we waited for confirmation and this seems to be the direction that WWE is “strongly considering” as we were told.
John Cena is currently filming a movie called “Playing With Fire” in Canada which wraps its shooting six days before WrestleMania. Therefore, if Cena is gong to show up on RAW it will be via satellite or he will have to get special permission to leave the set for a day which could be a problem since he has a leading role in the film.
