It looks like Rey Mysterio may be returning to the ring for WWE at WrestleMania 34 in a huge match against a top WWE Star. That top star is speculated to be John Cena.
There had been a lot speculation of Cena facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34 but it appears that is not happening and Cena may be facing Mysterio.
Mysterio was backstage visiting at Monday’s SmackDown live event in San Diego, his hometown. Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated reports that Mysterio was also backstage for last night’s SmackDown TV tapings in Los Angeles to finalize details for the deal that will see him work WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. Barrasso added that Rey’s rumored opponent is Cena.
Barrasso now reports that the Cena vs. Mysterio match was brought to the table after it was ruled that The Undertaker will not be working this year’s WrestleMania event.
Cena vs. The Undertaker had been expected but Cena did note during Monday’s RAW promo that he was told the match with Taker was impossible and not happening.
Last night on SmackDown, Cena returned an defeated AJ Styles to earn a spot in the WWE Championship Match at Fastlane against WWE Champion AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler.
Mysterio made a surprise appearance for WWE at the Royal Rumble back in January and has been rumored to be in talks with the company about a return later this year or in early 2019.
The last Cena vs. Mysterio singles match came on the July 25th, 2011 RAW. That match saw Cena defeat Rey for the WWE Title. The two would then team up at a December 28th, 2013 WWE live event in Newark, NJ. They defeated Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio that night.
