John Cena Wants Big Wrestlemania Role

According to WrestleVotes on Twitter, John Cena wants a big spot at Wrestlemania this year (h/t DailyDDT).

Cena hasn’t had a major match at Wrestlemania in a few years, depending on what you consider a major match. Last year he had no match at all, instead appearing as Doctor of Thuganomics Cena to confront Elias. The year before he lost to the Undertaker in an impromptu match, and won a mixed tag with Nikki Bella against The Miz & Maryse at Wrestlemania 33. No indication as of yet what kind of angle Cena had in mind. It would be great to see him put over a new star on the roster, like Andrade or the Velveteen Dream.
