John Cena Added To WWE Championship Match At Fastlane

John Cena Added To WWE Championship Match At Fastlane

That's the question wrestling fans are asking each other today after rumours emerged courtesy of Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated that Rey Mysterio is in line to face Cena in April. The free agent reached Smackdown on Tuesday and said that he is ready to do whatever it takes to be part of Wrestlemania.

Cena is a desperate man as WWE closes in on the Showcase of the Immortals. The company teased the match on RAW this past week and has already got the build in motion.

However, the Deadman's status with the company however is unknown, with most fans believing he retired after losing to Roman Reigns at last year's Wrestlemania. We covered both these reports late last night.

Cena wasted no time in making his presence felt during SmackDown.

The 16-time world champion defeated AJ Styles in a thrilling encounter and earned a championship opportunity at Fastlane. Commissioner Shane McMahon then came out to address Cena's intentions, as did GM Daniel Bryan soon after.

As you'd expect, the main event on Tuesday night was another terrific outing from these two.

It's possible Cena called a potential encounter with The Undertaker "impossible" merely as a prelude to set the wheels in motion and draw 'Taker out of his hiatus. The WWE title match at the pay per view will now be a six-pack challenge. At one point, Styles reversed an STF in the center of the ring, lifting himself into a pinfall.

COULD The Undertaker be about to make a stunning return to WrestleMania to fight John Cena?

What else happened on SmackDown?

Kevin Owens sat in on commentary. Prior to the finish, Ziggler appeared out of nowhere and nailed Owens with a superkick. And then he made a challenge that received possibly the biggest pop from the crowd during a WWE TV show in a long time.

There's a war coming between Charlotte Flair and Ruby Riott, with the leader of the Riott Squad picking up an equal amount of wins in the fallout of the divided women's locker room of Smackdown LIVE. This is assuming contract negotiations work for the former WWE Champion. They'll clash with one another at Fastlane.

Also on Smackdown Live, The New Day discussed their storied rivalry with The Usos before the teams meet once again for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships at Fastlane. Right as they were about to get physical, The Bludgeon Brothers' music hit.

Bobby Roode was interviewed by Rene Young. After wondering whether that problem stems from the champ being higher on the SmackDown Top 10 than "The Viper", Orton appeared.

Other speculations involve Royal Rumble champion, Shinsuke Nakamura, who Cena could be facing on Fastlane on March 11.

Cena was on fire early, clearly energized by a new chance to get to WrestleMania.
