Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that John Cena vs. AJ Styles is not the plan for WrestleMania 34 as WWE has him set for a bigger match.
Cena’s WrestleMania opponent will reportedly be made clear at the Raw 25th-anniversary show next month. That would likely mean that Cena will face someone like Undertaker, Batista or Goldberg.
Several angles for the top WrestleMania matches will be shot at the 25th anniversary of Raw on Monday, January 22. The speculation is that Cena’s opponent will be The Undertaker but that has yet to be confirmed.
In an update, Bryan Alvarez spoke about the upcoming special edition of Raw on Sunday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live. He speculated that Taker will tease his retirement on the show. This would lead to Cena walking out as Taker is announcing his retirement and Cena would challenge The Deadman to one final match at WrestleMania.
Alvarez would go onto to state that there is a big plan for Cena at the upcoming event and that it’s bigger than any championship matches on the card.
