Even though we’re still in 2016, the WWE will already be thinking about potential storylines and matches heading into WrestleMania 33, which takes place in Orlando next year.
The company will want to one-up this year’s event, especially since so many big names were missing from the card through injuries. So we should expect some big name clashes, maybe even Seth Rollins vs. Triple H.
TWO BIG PLANS
CageSideSeats are reporting that John Cena is in an interesting situation right now, and as things stand, the WWE have two plans in place for him, and it’s a struggle to pick which one he would opt to choose.

There have been reports that The Undertaker is done with the WWE, that his match with Shane McMahon was his last, and there’s supposed resentment towards Vince as Shane was able to return despite losing.
Cena was supposed to be The Deadman’s original opponent last year, and the WWE are trying to have them face off in 2017 to make up for it, this could also mark The Undertaker’s last appearance; for good this time.

Many feel that this is a match that needs to happen at a WrestleMania before both men call an end to their in-ring careers, so it’s a matter of now or never for this particular match.
So, this all depends on how The Undertaker is feeling both health-wise, and what his relationship is like with Vince.
If everything is okay, the fences are mended, and The Phenom is good to go, we’ll be getting plan A which sees Cena battle The Undertaker at long last.
However, plan B is perhaps just as attractive for Cena as a World Championship could fall on his lap.
THE UNDERTAKER OR A 16TH WORLD TITLE?
Although he’s currently involved in the triple threat feud with AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose on SmackDown Live for the WWE Championship, he isn’t expected to win as he’s taking more time off.
This means when he returns, probably early next year, the seeds could be planted for a WWE title match at WrestleMania.
On paper, it makes complete sense for Cena to face off against Styles, not only will he avenge his losses to his rival, but he will also equal Ric Flair’s record of 16 World Titles, and WrestleMania is the perfect stage to do that.
Ambrose could also be an option, as he handed Cena his first clean loss on WWE television in a staggering seven years, although a Styles match does make it more special as so much more is on the line.
Either way, Cena will have an incredible WrestleMania. Now it all comes down to The Undertaker, and whether he’s up for another epic clash at the grandest stage of all.
