Having suffered a quick and devastating defeat to The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34 this week, professional sports-entertainer John Cena is seeking redemption by challenging an opponent he feels he might fare better against next year, Raw Tag Team Champion Nicholas.
“I think I can take him,” Cena said at a press conference this morning in New Orleans. “He’s great, but a little experienced.”
Nicholas, who burst onto the WWE scene last night by tagging with Braun Strowman to win the tag championships from Sheamus and Cesaro, has not yet responded to Cena’s challenge, because he is currently in history class until recess.
Nicholas [SURNAME UNKNOWN] is poised to be the breakout star of the year, having debuted and at WrestleMania — all on a school night.
Backstage sources say the tag championship a stepping stone, eventually leading to a falling-out and feud with Strowman, followed by a long buildup to next year’s WrestleMania showdown against Cena. Nicholas is then reportedly considering a transition to UFC.
