Three WWE superstars who could have an amazing WrestleMania feud with John Cena

The Royal Rumble is less than two months away now, which means it's almost time to start the Road to WrestleMania.

It's looking extremely likely that the most exciting thing on the card so far that's been rumoured will be Becky Lynch against Ronda Rousey - although with Charlotte's interference in the feud that may not happen anymore.

Dave Meltzer also revealed last week that Seth Rollins is currently slated to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, which could mean that Rollins wins the Rumble for the first time and Lesnar will retain the strap at Chase Field.

But Mania is also known for showcasing legends and part-timers - which is exactly what John Cena is nowadays.

His last three matches have been at Super Show-Down, Greatest Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 34 - in-fact his last match on Raw was two weeks before Mania in March.

Cena has had filming commitments in China to take care of for most of 2018, but he returns to the United States very soon and has been advertised for a ton of live events and an episode of Raw in 2019.

That normally indicates that a Royal Rumble appearance will be occurring, and we know for a fact unless a movie gets in the way, he will be at WrestleMania.

We've listed three exciting potential feuds Cena could have leading into the Grandest Stage Of Them All - all against stars that he hasn't faced one-on-one before.

Samoa Joe

Samoa Joe has only faced John Cena twice before.

Cena and Joe have faced-off against each other twice before - both in 2017 tag matches - but never a one-on-one bout.

The two were both huge up-and-coming stars in the mid-2000s - Cena began his long reign as WWE Champion whilst Joe was making waves in TNA.

Joe has been a star performer on SmackDown in the ring in recent months, and despite not getting the better of AJ Styles in their rivalry, a feud with a WWE icon such as Cena could be what Joe needs after he's done with Jeff Hardy.

Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre hasn't faced Cena at all and he could be the one that the leader of the Cenation 'puts over'.

Surprisingly, McIntyre and Cena's paths have never crossed in the WWE ring in his first spell with the company.

But after leaving and re-packaging himself, McIntyre is a completely different beast now, and the Scottish Psychopath hasn't been pinned or submitted since his call-up to Raw earlier this year.

Whilst it looks like they're booking McIntyre strong, a Universal Championship shot may not happen until later in 2019, so who better than Cena to legitimise the former NXT Champion's credentials by passing the torch, just like Kurt Angle did?

Velveteen Dream

Velveteen Dream is on the cusp of a main roster call-up - and John Cena wants to face him.

Rumoured to be on the cusp of a main roster move sooner than later, Velveteen Dream is one of the most popular characters in all of NXT.

His flamboyancy and skills have caught the eyes of many - including Cena himself - who he referred to as 'The One'. 

Cena could potentially declare post-Royal Rumble that he wants a new challenge and to face 'someone different' - and there's no-one more different than The Dream.
