Huge Match John will likely be making his first look on Smackdown in fairly a while this Friday night time, along with his cameo doubtless to be organising his WrestleMania 36 program. However after having achieved all of it, what’s there left for Cena to do precisely? Does he put over a youthful expertise? Does he have one final large marquee match-up like his earlier confrontations with The Rock and The Undertaker?

Let’s have a look at probably the most viable choices for the Physician Of Thuganomics to face on the Grandest Stage Of Them All.

Baron Corbin

After warring with Roman Reigns for what feels like 17 years over on SmackDown, the esteemed ‘King’ Corbin will want one thing new to sink his enamel into. It is not a stretch to think about the wounded royal popping out of his cage bout with Reigns at Super ShowDown and instantly concentrating on a legend to restore his deflated ego.

John Cena matches the invoice.

Corbin retired Kurt Angle finally 12 months’s WrestleMania, and it would be in-character for him to fire out an analogous problem to Cena in 2020. Lose, and John could be banished “forever” from the WWE realm (at the very least till everybody forgets that stip and he fancies one other large payday). Win and he’d get to embarrass the ‘King’ like all people else.

Regardless of elevating the ire of social media whingers all over the place, Corbin is a stable heel who’s Teflon and helpful to WWE’s bookers. He may be written into virtually any situation with out worries for the future, as a result of he is really easy to hate. These boos will maintain coming, and so they’ll drown out any Cena haters.

Daniel Bryan

Babyface vs. babyface right here, or is it?

Daniel Bryan’s return from the heel darkish side was facilitated by Bray Wyatt’s obvious want to change everybody he comes into contact with in a roundabout way. We’ve seen a barely more unhinged D-Bry for the reason that loss at Royal Rumble, which culminated in Heath Slater getting his ass handed to him on Smackdown. This alteration in perspective would lend itself properly to a match with John Cena a a lot, as two goody two sneakers wrestlers going at each-other has all the time been arduous to spend money on.

It will additionally slot in properly with WWE’s relentless merchandise machine. If WWE do not thoughts placing a heelish spin on Daniel for a month or two once more, then they could give you the option to capitalise on Cena’s rainbow procession of t-shirts that steal money from dad and mom who solely need to make their youngsters completely satisfied at shows.

Bryan, who lately launched an eco-friendly shirt onto {the marketplace}, would not approve of Cena’s hats, shirts, wristbands or anything he was pushing from merch stalls close to you. “Never Give Up”? Yeah, by no means quit peddling merch that harms the setting…


El Ídolo’ vs. an idol is the draw for this one.

Andrade’s latest Wellness Policy hiccup hopefully won’t lead to some pointless punishment from WWE’s high brass. It is a good sign that he hasn’t been stripped of his United States Title, however it’s vital they do not determine to give him some form of televised spanking (not actually) by having him drop the belt shortly when he returns. Present rumours do sadly recommend that this may very well be occurring soon, however it will be ill-advised on WWE’s half.

Proper now, Zelina Vega’s prime consumer wants marquee wins that’ll assist him take a leap up the corporate ladder in time for the approaching post-WrestleMania hunch in business. Besting John Cena could be a feather in Andrade’s cap, and it would be easy to e book. Remember Cena’s personal history with that US belt, and the way a lot he did for the secondary strap a number of years in the past.

His open challenges offered a few of the finest TV matches in latest WWE history. Now, he may take that form of factor to pay-per-view, albeit with a twist. Cena could be trying to find the title, not preventing off hungry newcomers, and he’d love Andrade’s large bumping fashion.


So it occurred. Goldberg totally squashed and destroyed The Fiend at Super Showdown.

What does it imply going ahead for the Common Championship and Goldberg? That a lot is anyone’s guess. Greater than doubtless a showdown, and passing ox the torch, with Roman Reigns when he inevitably wins the Elimination Chamber… however how about that one final, large, marquee match up in opposition to Cena?

If that is not WWE’s present plan, then it needs to be. The fans are fairly rightly pissed off in regards to the newest instalment in Vince’s half timer obsession. So why not go one step additional and have John Cena, the last word half timer, come again and dethrone Goldberg to transfer previous Ric Aptitude’s record and add additional credence to the arguement of Cena being the GOAT? Positive, a component timer handing the belt over to one other half timer appears pointless, however Cena is a hell of rather a lot more widespread than Oldberg is with the WWE Universe.

The mixed title worth between Cena and Goldberg alone sells it. Tack a retirement stipulation onto this ‘Mania monster match and also you’d have a match for the ages, giving Goldberg the ship off he deserves.


“He isn’t a big enough name”

“It’s disrespectful to Cena”

Sit down. Shut up. Elias is the future of this firm and you already know.

We’ve already seen Elias and Cena work together on a couple of events however it has by no means actually achieved something for Elias shifting ahead. Nonetheless, a match at WrestleMania in opposition to one of many best of all time may go an enormous means towards establishing Elias as a high man on Smackdown. We have we have glimpsed of potential, just for it to be reduce quick at a moments discover, however WWE and Vince are clearly nonetheless excessive on Elias.

Elias’ time is now (See what I did there?). He’s arguably probably the most over that he has ever been in WWE and is having some actually memorable and entertaining moments with the likes of Strowman, Sami Zayn, Cesaro and Nakamura. Let’s face it – he in all probability wouldn’t beat Cena on the grandest stage of all of them. However simply going toe to toe with Cena would absolutely elevate Elias and get eyes on to him who in any other case might not even know who he’s.
