After considerable speculation, it’s been confirmed that John Cena will return to the WWE at WrestleMania 36. It’s been confirmed that he’ll come against Bray Wyatt, which this announcement following after the last-minute segment was aired onto SmackDown on February 28th. Immediately after this promotion aired on live television, John Cena began to walk towards the WWE Ramp towards the ring. This followed with Bray Wyatt challenging John Cena to a WrestleMania fight in front of millions. It’ll mark the 1st time that these two men compete against each other since WrestleMania 30, with their rivalry being one of the long-time unanswered questions in professional wrestling.
Bray Wyatt has become quite vocal regarding this upcoming fight since publicly challenging John Cena. He’s expressed multiple times that he hasn’t even considered a strategy against the former champion, with Wyatt confident that his skillsets will easy out-compete against John Cena’s. It should be noted that Cena hasn’t spent much time wrestling in recent months, with him spending a large percentage of time dedicated to professional acting.
Cryptic Tweets from Wyatt
Bray Wyatt vocal behaviour through Twitter didn’t end with his statements regarding John Cena. They extended to comments regarding the WWE and Vince McMahon, with it being confirmed that the world wrestling entertainment company is trying to kill off their characters. This wouldn’t be that surprising considering both John Cena and Bray Wyatt have their contracts ending in the coming months. It’ll most likely be the last time that loyal supporters of the WWE will see John Cena compete in the ring. Fighting against Wyatt is the perfect way to end his career, with this being the only rivalry that wasn’t finished.
When John Cena defeated Bray Wyatt during their 2014 matchup at WrestleMania 30, multiple supporters believe that judges and referees incorrectly gave the fight to Cena. It shouldn’t be awarded to Bray Wyatt, who displayed the more formidable skillsets and talent. Having the opportunity to avenge that false decision is something Bray Wyatt wanted before ending his professional wrestling career. There are rumours that Bray Wyatt will move onwards towards the Ultimate Fighters Championship. This would be similar to Brock Lesner and CM Punk, who both left professional wrestling for the UFC. While CM Punk never won a fight in this competition, Lesner saw himself become a notable name in the UFC and even acquire a championship belt.
