John Cena failed to wrestle on pay-per-views throughout 2019, which meant that it was the first calendar year that Cena had missed a chance to perform on pay-per-view in almost two decades, something that the former 16-time World Champion could be hoping to avoid this year.
Cena recently spoke to The Sun in the United Kingdom where he revealed that he wasn’t busy during WrestleMania weekend and was hoping that he could be part of the show.
“I will for sure be at the event and I have great trust in the process and I have great faith in Vince McMahon not only as a boss but as so much more than that. As a friend, as a mentor. If he were to tell me that he needs me, I would absolutely be active in whatever capacity, whether it would be like last year in New York rapping my way to the ring or the year before being a fan in the stands. There is no job too small.”
Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer went on to speculate that if Cena has told WWE that he’s available then there is no way that he won’t be used.
The WrestleMania card could be quite stacked this year though since the NXT Women’s Championship is already expected to be defended, and according to a report by PWInsider, this is expected to be the only Championship defended in Tampa Bay. This comes as a shock since many fans believed that this could be the opening for the NXT Championship to finally be defended at a main roster pay-per-view but according to Mike Johnson on PWInsider’s Elite Audio, this isn’t the case.
“As of yesterday, I was told that the NXT Women’s Championship will be the only currently planned as of today, the only NXT Championship match at WrestleMania. As of right now, I was told that only Charlotte vs Rhea or Bianca if it becomes a 3-way which was not the original plan, that will be the NXT Championship match that will be featured on that show.”
