Randy Orton Calls Out John Cena, Issues WrestleMania Challenge

Veteran WWE superstar Randy Orton recently signed a new contract with the company, following rumors that he would be leaving for the rival AEW promotion.

With a fresh deal under his belt, Orton isn't playing around now. Even though WrestleMania 36 is still four months away, the Viper has already revealed his desired opponent for the big show in Tampa Bay, Florida.

It's a long-time foe whom Orton has a very long and illustrious history with.

On Instagram, Orton said he was "up for a challenge" and asked 16-time World Champion John Cena if he's in for a match at WrestleMania 36.

Cena only wrestles a handful of matches a year these days, having grown into one of the biggest movie stars in all of Hollywood. The future Hall of Famer didn't compete at WrestleMania 35, but he made an appearance and confronted Elias in the middle of the ring.

His last match was on the Jan. 14 episode of Raw 10 months ago, where Cena lost a fatal four-way match to determine who would face Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble (won by Finn Balor).

The two rekindled their rivalry in 2009 - and again later in Dec. 2013 - with the feud running through March 2014. With superb in-ring chemistry, a combined 29 World Championships and all those wonderful matches, it's safe to say that fans would be more than keen to see Orton and Cena square off again.

Fans Deserve Another Orton-Cena Match

Cena hasn't wrestled in 10 months, but there's reason to believe that he'll try to make it to WrestleMania 36 this year. And if he does, you know WWE will want to pit him against another big-named superstar. It'd be incredible if WWE rekindled one of the top feuds of the 21st century, but only time will tell if we get our wish.
