John Cena vs. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt Announced For WrestleMania 36

John Cena is having a match at WrestleMania after all.

The former WWE Champion returned to SmackDown tonight and gave a heartfelt speech about listening to the fans and entrusting the future of the company and WrestleMania to the next generation. Initially, Cena said he is bowing out of this year’s WrestleMania and won’t have a match.

As Cena was making his way backstage and gave a salute to the Boston crowd, the lights went out and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt showed up, one day after losing the Universal Championship to Goldberg at Super ShowDown. Wyatt looked at Cena and pointed to the WrestleMania sign, looking for a match at the show. Cena simply responded by nodding his head and tipping his cap. The match was later confirmed by WWE.

From WWE:

At WrestleMania, it will be “you can’t see me” against the horror most Superstars hope you’ll never see. John Cena is set to return to The Showcase of the Immortals for what promises to be an incredible showdown against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.

The WWE Universe has witnessed Cena compete in a slew of classic WrestleMania matchups against some of the squared-circle’s most iconic Superstars, from The Undertaker to Triple H to Shawn Michaels to The Rock. But, just when it seemed as if the 16-time World Champion may have fought his final battle on The Grandest Stage of Them All, HE was there to pull him back in.

"The Fiend" Bray Wyatt emerged on the ramp and pointed to the WrestleMania sign, setting up the ultimate battle of good vs. evil at The Show of Shows. Save a single loss to Goldberg at WWE Super ShowDown, the monstrous competitor has been virtually unstoppable against some of the best WWE has to offer. But does he have what it takes to take down the likes of John Cena?
