He has not spoken! WWE has become a rather different kind of wrestling promotion than most. Instead of the stars being the focal point, the company itself gets the focus, meaning that almost no one really stands out as a breakaway star. However, there are some names who are bigger than others and one of them was in the house on Friday, as John Cena made his return to SmackDown.
Whether you like him or not, there is no denying that Cena is one of the biggest stars in the history of wrestling. He has since mainly moved on to Hollywood and entertainment, but he still comes back every now and then to add a little something to WWE. With WrestleMania rapidly approaching, it is time for Cena to get back to it and now we know what he is going to be doing in Tampa.
Cena appeared at the end of SmackDown and announced that he would not be wrestling at WrestleMania, citing a desire to let the future generation have the spotlight instead. As he went to leave, the Fiend appeared and pointed at the WrestleMania sign, with Cena tipping his hat in acceptance. The match was officially announced for WrestleMania on WWE.com. Cena defeated Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 30 in 2014.
There’s a history there. Check out Cena vs. Wyatt, both past and present:
Opinion: With the Fiend having lost the title, is there anything else he could or should be doing at WrestleMania? There is a history here and this is the souped up Fiend rather than the newcomer that Cena beat back in 2014. That being said, I’m not sure who comes out of this one and that makes for a more interesting match than what we could have been seeing otherwise.
Is this the right move for both of them? What is next for Fiend after WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
