Considering everything Cena has done at WrestleMania and done for the WWE, he would be well within his right to return a few weeks before the show, declare an opponent of his choice and coast into a headlining appearance.
But Cena, even though he's in one of the busiest periods of his professional life both inside and outside the WWE sphere of influence, has taken it upon himself to be as active as anyone on the roster. He's bounced between Raw and SmackDown, firing off some of the best promos of his career. Cena's ongoing fight to find a place on the WrestleMania card has carried him through the Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber without success, despite great matches and wins over active champions The Miz and AJ Styles.

For everything WrestleMania and the WWE have given him, Cena is still fully on board in being a team player -- and it shows in the energy and creativity he's brought to both in the lead-up to New Orleans. We just don't have the offseason like the other guys do, but I wouldn't have it any other way. If there's one major change between the John Cena who won the U.
It didn't quite play out as originally planned, but Cena smiled when thinking back to the moment and how far both he and the WWE have come. I was supposed to challenge two rappers at WrestleMania, Jay-Z and Fabolous, and I ended up rapping to their cardboard cutouts, because neither one of them showed up.
He finished third in the Royal Rumble, and didn't win the Elimination Chamber match.
But after teasing a challenge for The Undertaker that got pushed to the side because of "backstage reasons" as Cena pursued the WWE championship, Cena returned to his ultimatum last Monday in a promo. He reflects and steps away for a bit. This time though it happened just a few weeks out from 'Mania. This was the perfect time for either Cena to challenge Undertaker, call the Deadman out from ethereal oblivion, or for Taker to show up on his own and actually challenge Cena. That it was "impossible.
Now he's off to SmackDown to try and sort through his emotions and, hopefully, squeeze himself in the 'Mania mix.
We'll know more after tonight's TV, but the rumors have already begun that, at Fastlane, Cena will challenge Shinsuke Nakamura - with the winner going on to face AJ Styles at 'Mania Basically, Nakamura will put the main event title shot he won at the Royal Rumble on the line. I think they're making us sweat. The worst decision they could book here would be to throw Cena into the 'Mania match hardcore fans want to see the most.

The smarklash would be unbearable. I think there's an awareness that most fans know, way ahead of time, what the 'Mania card is going to look like so, right now, Vince and the rest are playing with our anticipation a bit.

Asuka was rumored to challenge Charlotte the entire reason the "both brands" stipulation was added to her Rumble win but she's still in this feud with Nia and Alexa.
Asuka hasn't officially challenged anyone though.
Some think there's no way for her to do so now, but all she has to do is tell Alexa "I already beat you. On RAW in a non-title match. Why would we want to see them fight again? There's a strong possibility we're being toyed with here.
John Cena: 'It's not a WrestleMania without The Undertaker'
Basically, I'm not believing anything is official until it's made official. Everyone's taking around things. And who doesn't love to point at the damn sign? Anyhow, in keeping with this theme, Undertaker could still face Cena.
All this means is that the announcement will come a few weeks from now. After Cena loses to Nakamura at Fastlane, he'll be lost. He'll think he's going to be left off the 'Mania card LOL, by the way.

I'm phantom booking here pretty hard. I get that I could be very easily up my own behind. Basically, breaking it down a bit more, the way Cena mentioned a match with Undertaker felt off.
