WWE Champion John Cena has a big challenge on his hands Sunday at Money in the Bank as he will be tasked with defending his title against "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry. Even if Cena is able to get through that, though, he has another fight lined up on Monday.
According to Cena on Twitter, he will be a guest on Live with Kelly and Michael on Monday morning and intends to wrestle former New York Giants defensive end and future Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan.
Strahan laid down the challenge, according to Live with Kelly and Michael's official Twitter account as he claimed that he isn't afraid of the 13-time world champion.
This faux feud dates back to the day after WrestleMania XXIX as Cena was a guest on the show. Cena defeated The Rock at MetLife Stadium to win the WWE Championship and avenge his loss from one year earlier. Strahan questioned the validity of Cena's title win, though.
Strahan said that The Rock gave him the WWE Championship when he was on the show previously and suggested that Cena's title wasn't legitimate. This was all in jest of course as Cena emerged on set before he and Strahan shared a handshake and a hug.
Despite that, Cena and Strahan are set to lock horns on Monday as Cena will undoubtedly be on the show to promote Monday night's edition of Raw from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Cena's tilt with Strahan may represent his second title match in less than 24 hours, although it will be a bit awkward if Cena shows up without his championship after a loss to Henry or perhaps even the Money in the Bank ladder match winner.
