What's the story?

Even though John Cena believes that he has no real road to WrestleMania 34, we can all agree that he'll most likely be booked at The Grandest Stage Of Them All in a marquee match. This article plots his future, following WrestleMania in New Orleans.

John Cena is not advertised for any WWE appearances following April 9, the RAW after WrestleMania 34. This has led Cageside Seats to speculate that he'll be focusing more on his Hollywood career following WrestleMania.

In case you didn't know...

John Cena was convinced that for the first time in years, he had no real road to WrestleMania, in 2018. As a result, he believed that he had to win at the Elimination Chamber to earn a spot at the pay-per-view. Roman Reigns eventually won the Elimination Chamber match.

Now Cena will be a part of SmackDown Live's programming, competing with five other WWE Superstars for the top prize in the brand, come Fastlane. If he wins the match, he could surpass Ric Flair's 16-Championship record.

The heart of the matter

The speculation stems from the fact that he isn't scheduled to appear on any episodes of RAW following WrestleMania 34, except the April 9th RAW in New Orleans. Moreover, he's not advertised to be on the SummerSlam or Survivor Series card either.

This has led many to speculate that Cena's Hollywood career will be his central focus, in coming months. Cena has been very vocal about his dual life, his pro-wrestling career and his Hollywood one, that he juggles simultaneously.

What's next?

Rumours indicate that John Cena will be unsuccessful at Fastlane, and then The Undertaker will come out to face Cena at WrestleMania 34. This should lead to the dream match taking place at WrestleMania 34.

Author's take

Wherever he goes, Cena is an ambassador for WWE. Therefore, I will shed no tears if I don't see him in the company for a few months.

It may even allow new talent to be called up from NXT, and given a chance to shine.
