After the news of John Cena’s return was confirmed, everybody started thinking about who will face the Doctor of Thuganomics next. Now, there are rumours that the 16-time World Champion is scheduled to face SmackDown superstar Elias at WWE WrestleMania 36. The news comes from Wrestling Observer Radio. Wrestling expert Dave Meltzer said that the reports are "ridiculous, underwhelming and true."
Fans are not happy with the news. They hope that the rumours do not come true. Some fans even said that they don’t want to watch WWE WrestleMania 36 if the match happens. Few asked WWE to give John Cena a good opponent like Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan or "The Fiend". Many want John Cena to pick NXT superstar Velveteen Dream rather than Elias.

Why would WWE waste a Wrestlemania match with John Cena vs Elias? There is literally five, six, or seven other feuds that are way more compelling. I really hope this is just a rumor and nothing else.— John (@JGor492) February 16, 2020
If the rumor is true, I'm no fan of John Cena wrestling Elias at #WrestleMania. Would be the third straight Mania with those two doing stuff and Elias has already reached his ceiling. If Cena can't do a long match, give R-Truth his Mania moment and a win over his boyhood idol.— Jason Solomon (@solomonster) February 16, 2020
Soooo rumors are saying john cena vs either elias or constipated corbin MIGHT be happening at WM? pic.twitter.com/oMUvfnHHuy— PRIN❌E (@HeelBalor) February 16, 2020
