  • Are John Cena and Rey Mysterio going to wrestle each other at Wrestlemania?

John Cena defeated WWE Champion AJ Styles on Smackdown Live. Following the Chamber, Cena appeared on Raw Talk and looked more dejected than ever, citing that he would have to go away and figure out exactly how he can get to Mania.

While Cena has since gone on to become a 16-time WWE champion, Mysterio has wrestled around the world over the past three years, and is now a featured act for British company Five Star Company.

Smackdown Live starts off with John Cena opening the show asking for a chance at being in the WWE Championship match at Fastlane on March 11th.

John Cena is now desperately trying to find his own personal path to a match at WrestleMania.

WADA says Russian Federation still not compliant on anti-doping
The Russian Olympic Committee was banned from the Olympics on December 5 because of widespread doping at the 2014 Sochi Games. The IOC decision was slammed by the lawyer for Russian whistleblower and former Moscow drug lab director Grigory Rodchenkov.

But throughout the day today, other wrestling scribes with sources within the WWE refuted these claims, although not entirely.

For weeks, there have been rumors that Cena would take on The Undertaker on WWE's biggest stage.

In a post from the official WWE Twitter handle, it was confirmed that Cena made an official challenge toward the Undertaker during the RAW event, which took place in Anaheim, California. "I don't make the matches, and as obvious as this seems, I've been told that this match is not happening because that match, once again, is impossible", he added.

WWE would seemingly gain little by having Cena specifically mention a potential match with The Undertaker, only to pull the rug out moments later.

New report claims Apple will launch iPhone X Plus this year
According to a new report , three new iPhones will launch in 2018, all derived from the design and features of the iPhone X. All three of Apple's new phones will have an updated operating system, likely called iOS 12 , according to Bloomberg .

Conflicting reports arose that Mysterio was backstage at SmackDown Live ahead of signing a deal - none of which can be substantiated, although Mysterio did meet up with Sin Cara. The fans were quite ecstatic with the announcement, and it was a long time coming.

Apparently WWE are now in the process of lining up a very different opponent for Cena at WrestleMania, and that man is Rey Mysterio.

The 40-year-old is a free agent and can appear on both brands and that's what Cena plans to do to get to Wrestlemania 34. Which dream matches would you like to see?

Secondly, with the Undertaker retiring his gimmick after the loss against Roman Reigns previous year at WrestleMania 33, is it really possible for the "Phenom" to return for one last match? 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.
