From the WWE Rumor Mill: John Cena's WrestleMania plans are bigger than the WWE Championship

What's the story?

As we hit the Road To WrestleMania, things are going to start coming together in regards to what kind of card we'll see for the 34th annual Show Of Shows.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported John Cena's big WrestleMania plans might already be set but Dave has heard WWE's plans for Cena are going to be bigger than a WWE Championship match leading some to wonder exactly how big of a match WWE has in store for Big Match John.

In case you didn't know...

There are a few names in WWE's history that could be huge if they came in to wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania 34, but Cena's name is already big enough already. Therefore, through a process of elimination, we can deduce who could be in line for Super Cena in New Orleans.

The heart of the matter

John Cena is set to be a part of WrestleMania, but that shouldn't be much of a secret. After all, he's still a massive name for WWE and isn't at the point in his Hollywood career just yet where he will miss WWE's biggest show of the year. But Dave Meltzer says even though there are rumours AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship at WrestleMania, he's being told that assumption is incorrect.

At this time the ongoing buzz suggests that Cena's opponent will be bigger than the WWE Championship meaning only a few candidates could really fit that bill. The Undertaker, Batista, Goldberg, or Hulk Hogan might be the only huge names at this juncture in the running but some names can probably already be ruled out already. After all, Hulk Hogan's body has taken enough damage and his back issues might present a huge problem if he wants to be cleared to compete.

Things are likely to become a lot more clear as Raw celebrates their 25th Anniversary on January 22nd because if someone like The Undertaker, Batista, or Goldberg are going to show up and mess with John Cena, it very well could happen then.

What's next?

Exciting things are on the way for the WWE Universe. If AJ Styles isn't wrestling John Cena, then maybe they are finally going to give the WWE Universe the Nakamura vs Styles match we've been clamouring for.

But John Cena's position on the card is quite interesting, to say the least. Especially considering the fact that his match is said to be even bigger than a WWE Championship encounter.

Author's take

If The Undertaker came back to wrestle John Cena in the match we've been hearing about for years it might be a fine way to cap off his career. But The Undertaker's story was so nicely tied up at WrestleMania 33 that it would almost be a shame to undo what Roman Reigns was able to accomplish.

At this point, I could use that Batista run we've been hearing about because nobody wants to see Goldberg come back and beat John Cena in under a minute, especially if he's going into the WWE Hall Of Fame next year as well.
