John Cena's WrestleMania 35 match could be against Samoa Joe for the United States title

John Cena's match at WM35 is thought to be against Samoa Joe

WrestleMania is just around the corner as the WWE brings the 'Show Of Shows' to the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, but one of the biggest names in the company has been absent for some time now.

John Cena is well-and-truly the biggest name that still competes inside the squared circle, but recently he's decided to focus on his acting career.

Nevertheless Vince McMahon wants him at 'Mania 35 on April 7 and it's been reported that plans are being worked on to incorporate the leader of the 'Cenation' into the show in some kind of capacity.

Cena's name has been brought up on WWE television quite a bit in recent weeks and it all has to do with R-Truth.

Truth captured the United States Championship on the SmackDown following the Royal Rumble back in January, and after being absent for most of February he returned at the end of the month to our screens with his belt in tow.

He announced that he would be re-instating the 'US Title Open Challenge'  as popularised by Cena, who he referred to as his 'childhood hero' despite competing in the ring long before the 16-time world champion ever did.

Samoa Joe dethroned Truth this past Tuesday in a Fatal Four-Way match on SmackDown though to start his first championship run on the main roster, and he seemed to call-out Cena in his post-match victory speech.

"I don't pander to the masses of the unexceptional, and I sure as hell ain't a man who loves John Cena. Hustle, loyalty and respect? No, no, no. All my opponents will find is disrespect, for any man who has the audacity to come for the king and his crown," Joe ranted.

And it looks like it's all heading towards a WrestleMania match between Joe and Cena, according to WrestlingNews who have allegedly been told by a company source that a match between the two is the plan.

Furthermore Cena has apparently been pushing for the match for some time, and the two trained together in the early 2000s before 'Big Match John' became a main roster figure.

The pair have only squared-off in a tag team match back in 2017, but now could be the time that a feud between the two starts, but Cena will first have to finishing off his filming commitments in Vancouver, which reportedly finish just six days before 'Mania.
