John Cena’s opponent at WrestleMania possibly revealed

John Cena at WrestleMania 35

John Cena is all set to appear on the February 28th episode of SmackDown. This has led to the surfacing of several reports that suggest that he’s all set to wrestle at WrestleMania 36.

However, his opponent at Mania might not please everyone.

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that although Cena is all set to show up at WrestleMania, his opponent might be “underwhelming”. Meltzer’s co-host Bryan Alvarez tried to guess the answer to this question and asked Meltzer if it was either King Corbin or Elias.

Meltzer replied by saying that it wasn’t Corbin and later on confirmed that it was indeed Elias. He went on to state that Elias might get a rub from the 16-time World Champion by losing to him at WrestleMania.

Not everyone would share Meltzer’s opinion on Elias since the Drifter still has quite the fan-following despite some questionable booking of his character as of late. However, it would be interesting to see if this report is indeed true and if Cena will have a WrestleMania moment with the Drifter once again.

    Firstly, considering his recent face turn, it makes zero sense for Elias to be the one Cena goes up against (no way is Cena turning heel, and babyface vs babyface rarely works).
    Secondly, how the hell would Elias get the rub from losing to Cena? It would be just another loss for Elias, something fans are used to seeing and do not like. The only way he would get “the rub” is by winning.

    Cena needs to be in a match against an established heel, or if it is a fellow baby face, it has to be someone of pretty much equal top tier status. The likes of Styles or Rollins would be good heel opponents for him, and if you really have to go with a baby face, Reigns would make the most sense.

    It makes more sense for him to face Corbin but I don’t have an issue with him facing Elias. The only thing that is gonna bother me about this is if they decide to turn Elias heel again. It seems like he’s finally starting to get on a role with being a baby face and it seems kind of stupid to switch that up now.

    If they turn him heel then he’s this era’s Big Show because of all of this flip flopping from heel to face every other week. We won’t even know what he is anymore.

    You don’t “get the rub” by losing. You get the rub by winning. Despite what WWE wants you to believe, wins and losses DO matter. Why else has charlotte never been pinned clean in a straight one-on-one match on ppv?
