Cena in one segment was seen interacting with Theory with whom the 16 time WWE Champion had been going back and forth on social media for several weeks. It all started with Theory wishing Cena on his birthday with a cheeky tweet and got a response from Cena as well. Since then it has been rumoured that a match between the United States Champion Theory and Cena is bound to happen. It was rumoured to take place at Summerslam but now seems to have been delayed according to Dave Meltzer. Meltzer reported that the match had been postponed till Wrestlemania 39 :
“However, Cena is not announced for any future TV dates and given how many tickets he moved in Laredo, if he was announced for a show, he’d move more tickets right now than anyone except Dwayne Johnson. So it makes no sense not to advertise him. But they wouldn’t do such a match without more of an angle. So the match, which is clearly a direction, may also be delayed for WrestleMania,” stated Meltzer
Theory and John Cena would be match to look out for as the two superstars have a similar attitude and Theory is often called as the young Cena. Vince McMahon has handpicked the current United States Champion to be the face of the company. John Cena is not advertised to appear at any event in the near future. Theory on the other hand will have his plate full with Lashley set to challenge Theory for the US title.
