• WrestleMania 36 – Original Plan For John Cena Revealed

Elias recently spoke to Sports Illustrated, where he revealed what he was supposed to do at this year’s WrestleMania 36 PPV.

He said that the plan was for him to face John Cena, which did not happen as “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt faced Cena instead and Elias ended up facing King Corbin on Night 1 of the Show of Shows.

Here’s what Elias said:

“New Orleans, I’m in the mix with John and The Undertaker. The next year, I’m in there with John and the Undertaker again — John at WrestleMania, The Undertaker the night next on RAW.

I was supposed to go on and face The Undertaker at the show in Saudi Arabia. That never ended up happening because of Goldberg, but that was supposed to be my match.

The year after was supposed to be myself against John Cena at WrestleMania in a three-year running story. Things obviously changed and that didn’t end up happening.”
