As previously reported here on eWn, WWE Superstar John Cena has agreed to compete in a match at this Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event. While his opponent has not been revealed as of this writing, there have been rumors that his opponent will not be Kurt Angle and it’s not likely to be R-Truth either. Of course, R-Truth has been calling out Cena on WWE television as of late.
Dave Meltzer confirmed our report on the most recent edition of WOL that Cena’s match is being kept secret and that “people who know everything” don’t even know who his opponent will be. According to Meltzer, Cena will have nothing to do with the Angle vs. Corbin match. Angle is for sure wrestling Baron Corbin unless someone else is coming in that we don’t know about yet. The idea is to put the “rookie” Baron Corbin over by having him face Angle in his “final” WrestleMania match.
When asked if Cena’s opponent could be Lars Sullivan, who was originally planned before trouble with anxiety kept Sullivan from making his main roster debut, Meltzer said he didn’t think they would do a match. He said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Cena defeats whoever he’s facing and Sullivan “shows up and destroys him.” He suggested that the way Triple H talked about Sullivan when recently asked about him, along with other things he’s heard, suggests that Sullivan is coming back sooner rather than later.
