John Cena sent the internet into a frenzy over the weekend after posting a photo relating to CM Punk which in some people’s eyes may suggest the current UFC star might be about to make a shock return to WWE.
The photo posted is actually CM Punk’s Twitter profile photo of Paul Newman in the movie Slapshot. You may remember Cena posted a photo of AJ Styles last month prior to his surprise debut at the WWE Royal Rumble.
It’s very interesting Cena, WWE’s top name would tease in this manner.
It’s extremely unlikely Punk will be making a return given the way he left the company, lawsuits and the fact he is signed to UFC. It would be a something of a “miracle” if those issues were resolved, I would suggest he is merely referencing the movie, causing speculation among the IWC heading into Sunday’s WWE Fastlane PPV, but nothing more, I guess we should never say never.
Then, Cena has continued that trend by posting a photo of The Undertaker, which had long been rumored to have been Cena’s WrestleMania 32 opponent, until he got injured, although some reports in recent days suggest Cena may be fit enough to return to take on The Deadman. Posters have also leaked which show Cena and Undertaker on them, although these could have been produced by WWE prior to Cena’s injury.
The Wrestling Observer recently noted that The Undertaker has an opponent in line for WrestleMania 32 that’s not Cena, Braun Strowman, Brock Lesnar or Sting.
It may just be Cena playing with his fans or even hinting that The Undertaker will return at tonight’s WWE Fastlane like when he posted a photo of AJ Styles prior to his Royal Rumble debut.
