Although John Cena’s skilled wrestling profession has begun winding down lately, the 16-time WWE Champion has maintained an impressive feat of wrestling in every single calendar year since 2002. “The Champ”‘s look on the December 30 version of “SmackDown” in Tampa, FL saved that streak intact, however many speculated he’d step again into the ring a lot sooner within the yr. A brand new report from Fightful Select confirms the 2 have just lately come into contact with a well-recognized face.
As Cena arrived in Tampa, Austin Concept was slated to face Seth “Freakin” Rollins at a home present in Toronto, Ontario, Canada the identical day. WWE quickly pulled the plug on Concept’s look, rerouting him to the Sunshine State. There, america Champion filmed a section with Cena. The capability during which the section will air — a digital unique, for the corporate’s 2K online game, or in any other case — is unknown, however the filming of it’s confirmed.
Concept had been amongst earlier discussions to be a potential WrestleMania 39 opponent for Cena. Additionally included within the checklist have been “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes and Logan Paul. “Unfastened plans” penciled in November appointed Paul as Cena’s opponent, however as of now, the arrogance in that route is unclear.
Within the leadup to his 20th-anniversary special on “Raw,” Austin Concept set his sights on Cena, because the two exchanged messages on social media, and Concept called for a match with him at last year’s SummerSlam. The 2 would meet backstage on June 27, however no additional plans ever got here to fruition on the time.
