Backstage Update On John Cena's WrestleMania Opponent, Rey Mysterio Signing With WWE

Styles looked to have victory in his grasp when he locked in the Calf Crusher on Cena, but somehow the leader of the Cenation was able to power out and land the Attitude Adjustment on the WWE champion to get the 1-2-3. He openly gave a WrestleMania challenge to The Undertaker. However, he did made headlines recently after making a surprise entrance in the 2018 Royal Rumble in January.

"You want WrestleMania, that is WrestleMania.and that match is not happening", Cena said and the cheers from the crowd turned to boos.

First was Taker's unusual promo during the Raw 25 anniversary show. That match would be against none other than the WWE Champion, AJ Styles in Tuesday night's main event.

As a side note to this, some outlets reported that Mysterio had been at "Smackdown Live" during the show backstage, though we have confirmation he was only at the live event the night prior in San Diego which is his hometown. WWE won't confirm whether he is in fact retired or not because the boss always wants that option in his back pocket come WrestleMania season if he's short a big match or needs something to boost interest. There's no doubt there would be a long list of wrestlers lining up backstage to work opposite of him at WrestleMania in New Orleans.

Known for his 619 middle-rope kick, Mysterio is regarded as one of the biggest innovators in professional wrestling in the US.

Brad Shepard of, who has broken stories about the return of the XFL, had this to say from his sources. He defeated AJ Styles to earn his way into the bout and make it a Six Pack Challenge; against Styles, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin, and Dolph Ziggler. He talked about his upcoming match with Randy Orton at WWE Fastlane. Fast forward to this year and Big Match John was dropping hints about Mania being able to raise Superstars from the dead even before he out and out challenged Taker to an "impossible" match. This included Cena hitting Styles with a wicked looking tornado DDT where Styles landed awkwardly on Cena's hip.
