3 possible feuds for John Cena in 2019
John Cena is one of the greatest wrestlers of this generation, and he returned to WWE after a hiatus. Cena appeared on the first Smackdown Live episode of the year, and also appeared on Raw this week, which was the first Raw episode of the year. Cena is scheduled to take part in Royal Rumble this month, and he is one of the favourites to win.
Cena made his WWE debut in 2002, and his career achievement is astonishing. He has won a record number of titles in his career. He won the tag team titles four times, US title five times, and is a sixteen time World Champion. However, Cena is not a Grand Slam champion, as he needs to win the Intercontinental title to obtain the feat.
Cena has won the WWE world title a record sixteen times, and he is a joint record holder with Ric Flair. Hence, he needs one more WWE title reign to win the most number of WWE titles in history. Cena also won the Money in the Bank once, and the Royal Rumble match twice in his career.
Presently, Cena performs as a part-timer, but he might participate in big PPVs of the year. WWE's ratings were substandard last year, and Cena's inclusion will definitely help to improve the ratings. He has a bright chance to become the Intercontinental Champion, and he might become the Grand Slam champion this year. Moreover, he could also win his seventeenth WWE title.
Several elite superstars might face Cena this year. Here we discuss 3 possible candidates who can have a feud with the 16-time WWE Champion.
#3 Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre could be an exciting opponent for John Cena, as he has established himself as a top guy. McIntyre performs on Raw, and he had an impressive segment with John Cena this week which led to a 6-man tag team match. The segment suggests that the two superstars might have a rivalry.
McIntyre has a long history in WWE. His first WWE run started in 2009, but his first tenure was substandard. He was also part of the stable 3MB, which had Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal. McIntyre was released in 2014.
Afterwards, he earned a reputation in the indies and came back to WWE in 2017 and became the NXT champion. In fact, he made his main roster return after Wrestlemania 34, and he has become a key superstar of the Raw. McIntyre won the Intercontinental title once and tag team titles twice. As a matter of fact, he won the Raw tag team titles with Dolph Ziggler last year.
McIntyre is certainly a favourite candidate to win the Royal Rumble. However, Cena and McIntyre could start a fresh feud if he manages to eliminate Cena in the Royal Rumble match. McIntyre can reach a new stature in his career if he can pin John Cena.
