Possible reason why John Cena vs. Logan Paul isn’t likely to happen at Wrestlemania 39
As seen during the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble PLE, Logan Paul eliminated Seth Rollins from the men’s Rumble match to seemingly set up a match between them at Wrestlemania 39. Logan was rumored to be facing John Cena at Wrestlemania but it’s now believed that United States champion Austin Theory will be Cena’s opponent as Theory has been using Cena’s “the champ is here” catchphrase on television in recent weeks.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com brought up a possible reason for WWE to go with Cena vs. Theory instead of Cena vs. Logan…
“The worry about Logan Paul is, the feeling is you need lots and lots and lots of practice and John Cena doesn’t have the time to do that practice. Cena can go with Theory and Theory is experienced enough. They don’t need lots and lots of practice to have a decent match.”
