Randy Orton picks long-time friend as ideal opponent for dream match at WWE WrestleMania

As a subgenre of professional wrestling, dream fights are often envisioned as epic confrontations between legendary wrestlers. Randy Orton recently stirred excitement among fans by hinting at a potential match, expressing his ambition to reclaim the biggest prize in wrestling – his fifteenth WWE World Title.

Cena and Orton have engaged in numerous battles over the years, and now Orton has explicitly expressed his desire to face Cena at WrestleMania. Twitter is abuzz with fans fervently demanding this showdown, while retirement rumors surrounding Cena add an additional layer of unease.

Randy Orton wants to face Jonh Cena at WrestleMania

The Viper triumphantly returned at Survivor Series 2023 after being absent for almost a year because of a back ailment. He joined SmackDown for future feuds with The Bloodline to get retribution. At Royal Rumble, Orton will square off against AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, and LA Knight in a Fatal 4-Way match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Although John Cena’s September comeback generated enthusiasm, new rumors indicate that he may retire without winning his 17th title as a result of the Sag-AFTRA strike. Orton’s reference to Cena suggests that the two veterans may have a shot at winning the championship together.

Despite their legendary history, WrestleMania has never before featured a singles bout between Randy Orton and John Cena, who previously engaged in a memorable three-way match at WrestleMania 24. As WrestleMania 40 approaches, Orton, now boasting 14 World Championships, exudes confidence in his ability to either match or potentially surpass Cena’s record of 16 titles.

Apex Predator during an interview on WWE’s The Bump said, “A dream match for me would be to somehow find myself in a situation where I’m fighting Cena at WrestleMania for the title. I don’t know how you get there, I’m not saying it’s gonna happen. But I have never wrestled John at WrestleMania in a singles match.”

However, WWE may rethink after Orton expressed his fantasy bout versus Cena.

In the interview, Orton discussed his homecoming, future intentions, WWE’s fascinating talent, and more. The Apex Predator also shared his estimated number of championship opportunities and expressed a desire to face a certain opponent in a dream match on a grand platform.

Apex Predator said, “You know the 14 title reigns that I’ve had… that means a lot to me. So making it 15, making it 16 like, of course, I would love for that to happen. It doesn’t keep me up at night dreaming of that next title shot because I think I know that it’s in the cards.”

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
