John Cena is back, and he’s heading to WrestleMania!
The 16-time world champion returned to WWE Friday Night Smackdown, the brand that first made him a star, to discuss his role in this year’s Showcase of the Immortals.
Cena talked at length about the future of the business, claiming that he has been listening to what the fans are saying – and that has led him to the conclusion that the increasingly rare spots on a major card like WrestleMania should be preserved for those who fight for them, week in and week out.
That lasted all of five minutes, as Big Match John was confronted by none other than Bray Wyatt’s demonic alter ego, The Fiend. Apparently the masked psychopath is looking to shake off losing the Universal title to Goldberg by taking his frustrations out on one of the greatest megastars that WWE has ever created.
Cena and Wyatt famously competed at WrestleMania 30, with the former scoring a victory. We get the feeling things might not shake out exactly the same this time around, as The Fiend is certainly not the same entity that the former Wyatt Family cult leader once was.
WWE has officially confirmed the rematch, set to take place at WrestleMania 36 on Sunday, April 5th. The colossal event, which will also see Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre, as well as Shayna Baszler challenging Becky Lynch, emanates live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL.
