John Cena is gearing up for his next run with the WWE that will at least run through WrestleMania 34.
WWE Fastlane is set to take place on March 11th, 2018 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets.
This will be an exclusive SmackDown brand event and the final PPV event before Wrestlemania 34.
The website for the venue is advertising Cena for the event. The website for the venue is also listing the main event as a huge fatal five-way match for the WWE Championship featuring AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn vs Randy Orton vs Shinsuke Nakamura.
Just a few days ago, Cena revealed on social media that will officially be taking part in the Royal Rumble match. Cena made the announcement in a post on Twitter by writing the following:
"A sunny morning on the first day of 2018. Possibilities are endless, opportunities are plentiful. Time to #EarnTheDay because on January 28th, I’m entering the #RoyalRumble match and earning a chance at history @WrestleMania! #Raw."
The WWE Universe has a love-hate relationship with the former WWE Champion.
If you recall, Cena was first introduced as a babyface on the SmackDown brand back in 2002 when he made his debut with the company in a singles match against Kurt Angle.
They would later turn Cena into a heel, and he would portray that character until 2004 when he turned into a babyface.
After winning the WWE Title from John Bradshaw Layfield at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, the sports entertainment company has continued to keep him as a babyface due to his popularity with younger fans.
For years now, the older male audience has called for the former WWE Champion to turn heel and go to the dark side. Not only because they want to change Cena from being portrayed as a babyface, which he has done for over a decade but also because he was such a great heel back in the day.
WWE has considered doing this in the past, but at the end of the day, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and other WWE officials have yet to pull the trigger on a Cena heel turn.
Cena is being advertised for several upcoming WWE events. Here is his updated schedule:
- Royal Rumble PPV: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - 1/28
- Monday Night Raw: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - 1/29
- Monday Night Raw: Des Moines, Iowa - 2/5
