Potential John Cena WrestleMania 39 Match Revealed

Potential John Cena WrestleMania 39 Match Revealed WWE

A potential opponent for John Cena at WrestleMania 39 in April 2023 has been revealed ahead of Cena’s in-ring return on December 30.

Cena will remarkably hold onto his streak of having a WWE match every year since 2000 at the very last opportunity this year, as he and Kevin Owens will face Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn on the December 30 edition of SmackDown.

However, it might not be too long before he’s back in the ring again.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the “belief” is that Cena will be working WrestleMania 39, as long as he can figure it out alongside his schedule, which he is expected to do.

What’s not clear right now is his opponent, but Meltzer reports that at one point, Cena’s opponent was planned to be Austin Theory.

That was back before Paul Levesque (Triple H) took over WWE creative, but, as we’ve seen recently, Levesque is still high on Theory, and if it’s a match that Cena specifically wants, he’ll probably get it.

Both Theory and Cena have teased the match in the past, and it’s no secret that Cena was Theory’s childhood hero in real life.

As of now though, it’s not clear if that’s still the plan.

There’s also been talk of Steve Austin and The Rock returning for WrestleMania, but again, nothing officially confirmed yet.
