– John Cena is interested in a certain WWE Superstar for later this year as his opponent, which is reported by the Observer that he wants to work with Big E. At some point down the line. It’s possible that they’ll do something after SummerSlam.
Cena was the one that lobbied WWE management to give him a push and was a major influence on why Big E got the IC Title run.
I think both guys are decent, but I am not interested in this matchup. I believe Big E needs a shot in the arm as far as something to get him back in the eyes of the WWE Universe, but it does not spark me as a fantasy fight.
