John Cena in WWE’s plans for WrestleMania 32; Major role as a non-wrestler

John Cena has made his opinion clear that he won’t be wrestling at the upcoming World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) WrestleMania 32. However, speculations are ripe regarding WWE planning a major non-wrestling role for the 15-time world heavyweight champion.

Previously, there were reports that WWE were planning on a match between John Cena and The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32. However, with Cena failing to recover from his injury, the plan had to be scrapped.

This was a major blow for the company since Cena is considered to one of their primetime faces. Having him pitting against the dead man would have ruptured the ratings record thus going on to create a historic moment on television.

Since the leader of Cenation won’t be available to wrestle, WWE is planning on using him as a major part of a storyline. Rumors suggest that Cena could potentially play a major role in the Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker match, as reported by Inquisitr.

The Authority has been dominating the WWE landscape on screen for a long time. It is not a hidden truth that John Cena has been fighting against the reigns of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon running the company for a long time. Hence, having Shane win the match against the Undertaker would help dispose of the Authority thus handing over the reins to Vince McMahon’s son Shane.

This will be a welcome boost for the WWE audience who has craved for the company to take a fresh direction in their creative approach. Having Shane McMahon take over the company’s flagship show RAW could prove to be a turning point.

According to sources, John Cena has been training hard to get back into fighting shape. He is way ahead of his recovery schedule and if everything falls into place, Cena should be back fighting it out in the WWE ring by this summer.

Moreover, Cena has been known to give out hints on his social media before any major breakthrough in WWE storyline takes place. The superstar recently posted a photo of two WrestleMania 32 tickets on his Instagram account.

Now, why would Cena require a ticket to attend the biggest pay-per-view of the year? He is a WWE employee. This has fueled speculations of him sitting on the sidelines and thus interfering in the Shane McMahon vs The Undertaker match.
