John Cena could face recently signed WWE Superstar at WrestleMania 39

After a long absence from WWE, John Cena is reportedly making his big return on the December 30 edition of SmackDown. The Cenation leader is sorely missed by most fans as he only returns a few times a year for an appearance in the company.

We last saw John Cena on the special edition of Monday Night RAW on June 27, dedicated to celebrating his 25th anniversary in the company. Cena gave an impassioned speech to the crowd, thanking them for their love and making it clear that he would return for another run.

Now it appears to be coming out with Xero News reporting that WWE is already scheduling several potential opponents for him such as Logan Paul, LA Knight and Austin Theory for a match at WrestleMania 39. It has further been reported that the most likely scenario to going one match could be John Cena taking on Logan Paul with the LA Knight feud in second place.

The possibility of a match between Cena and Paul was teased recently, with the latter asking Triple H to gift him a WrestleMania match on his birthday, April 1.

A playful banter also came from the former 16-time world champion, who responded by posting a photoshopped meme of the young star’s face on Stone Cold Steve Austin to social media. The text at the top of the photo read “Stone Cold Someday”, hinting at a possible confrontation between them down the line.

WWE Legend is against the idea of ​​John Cena taking on Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39

Many seeds have been carefully planted for a possible major feud between John Cena and Austin Theory. The rising star recently captured the WWE United States Championship again in a triple threat match against Set of Rollins and Bobby Lashley at Survivor Series: WarGames.

Austin Theory is now more convinced than ever that he will have an even better run than Cena, with a match between the two stars looking increasingly likely. However, Vince Russo isn’t entirely convinced that next year’s competition should take place on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

Speaking on Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Outlaws, the former WCW writer stated that the match wouldn’t do justice to John Cena’s star power.

“I hope not. Bro, Cena was going to go from box office attraction to b-movie star, bro. Oh, please, bro, please! It’s been a thing for Theory [not for the fans].” [From 1:30 to 2:00]

If Austin Theory had successfully cashed Roman for the wwe title, things wouldn’t be so complicated at this point. He could have been champion and the only person to come after him is John Cena, fighting for his 17th title win at Wrestling Mania
