John Cena Accepts Huge WrestleMania Challenge

John Cena WWE Raw

John Cena is set to return to the Grandest Stage of Them All as he accepts a massive challenge to compete at WrestleMania 39.

For months now, Austin Theory has run his mouth about John Cena and promised the star “a warm, warm welcome” when it was announced that the sixteen-time world champion was set to return to Monday Night Raw.

On Raw in Boston, Cena appeared to a rapturous reception but before he could get started he was interrupted by Theory. Theory initially lauded Cena and his achievements noting that he was his childhood hero before offering John Cena a present – a match at WrestleMania 39.

To the surprise of many, John Cena initially turned down the offer noting that Theory hadn’t earned the right to ask before questioning the young star’s heart.

After Theory made fun of Cena’s bald spot, Cena cut to the core of the matter as he noted he’d rather go bald than have WWE pipe in crowd noise because no one cares about them.

After consulting with the fans who were unanimous in their view, Cena finally accepted the challenge meaning he will now face Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39.

On an interesting note, Vince McMahon was backstage at Raw and while it was believed McMahon was there to visit Cena, a report noted that the Executive Chairman was “in Gorilla all night.”
