It is WrestleMania week and the euphoria for World Wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) show of the year is reaching a crescendo with every pro-wrestler and fan only looking forward to the flagship pay-per-view event.

The road to WrestleMania has been a long one with talk about the event beginning since the conclusion of WWE’s first pay-per-view of the year, Royal Rumble, when Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch booked their places by winning the men’s and women’s matches.

And for the first time in the history of WrestleMania, it will be a women’s division match – the triple-threat between Ronda Rousey, Lynch, and Charlotte Flair – that will headline the event. Apart from that, Rollins will take on Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship and Triple H will face old friend turned foe Batista in a no-holds-barred grudge match.

While most of the matches for the event have already been decided there remains questions on the participation of a number of legends, namely, The Undertaker and John Cena, who have been crowd favorites and regulars when it comes to WrestleMania over the last two decades. There has been no confirmation from WWE about any matches scheduled for either superstar.

The Undertaker has been taking bookings outside of WWE in recent weeks and has not competed in WWE since November 2018 but is expected to attend the event on April 7 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Cena, on the other hand, competed in WWE in January before taking time off to return to his movie commitments. The 16-time WWE champion is currently in Canada filming but revealed recently that he will be in New York for a book signing on the same weekend as WrestleMania.

There were talks about the possibility of Cena wrestling Kurt Angle in his final match, but that honor was given to Baron Corbin much to the disappointment of the WWE Universe. However, if there is ever a possibility of getting Cena for WrestleMania, WWE chairman Vince McMahon is likely to make it happen as he continues to remain one of the most popular characters among pro-wrestling fans.

Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer believes WWE will have something up their sleeve for Cena and believes they could even use him as a victim to introduce Lars Sullivan, who is one of the upcoming stars touted for the big time.

“The Cena match is being kept secret," Meltzer said, as quoted on Wrestling Inc. "I mean even people who know everything don't know that one. I mean people internal, internal do know, but I don't know who it is. It's not Kurt, for sure."

"I don't think they're gonna do a match with Lars, but I wouldn't be surprised if John Cena beats somebody and Lars shows up and destroys him," Meltzer said. "I mean, it's possible. It may be a little early for Lars, but just the way Triple H talked when he was asked about Lars and other things I've heard.”
