    With WrestleMania XXX now almost upon us, anticipation is high—both in the WWE and around it.

    Fans have much to look forward to come Sunday evening, as Daniel Bryan seeks to end the night as WWE champion and The Undertaker defends his 21-0 streak against Brock Lesnar.

    However, another match that's further down the WrestleMania card has been garnering plenty of attention in recent weeks: John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt.

    Lately, these two have been at the very top of their respective games, and their excellent mic work and brilliant storytelling have helped make this one of the best-built feuds as we head into ‘Mania.

    But how exactly will their bout finish?

    This article speculates a few of the possible scenarios that we could see unfold this Sunday at WrestleMania—some of which are less straightforward than others.

A SuperCena Victory

    In keeping with traditional pro wrestling booking, WrestleMania often sees the bad guys meet their comeuppance and the heroes stand tall.

    Bray Wyatt’s creepy demeanour has made him one of the biggest bad guys in the company right now, and it’s safe to say that Cena is the No. 1 hero. So we could see a simple conclusion whereby SuperCena defies the odds of Wyatt and his family to come out on top on the grandest stage of all.

    Of course, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan are not officially involved in the match, but you can guarantee they’ll at least be ringside. A possible interference would make them perfect cannon fodder for Cena and his arsenal of Attitude Adjustments.

    It may not be the most popular outcome, but given the tastes of the company’s PG audience, a SuperCena-style victory would likely satisfy the majority of the WWE Universe.

Bray Wyatt Wins Clean

    That being said, it would be a shame to see Wyatt’s momentum derailed after the impact he has made since his promotion to the full roster.

    The man formerly known as Husky Harris is currently unbeaten on pay-per-view under his new gimmick. Wins over the likes of The Shield, Kane and Daniel Bryan have seen Wyatt’s stock rise dramatically, but much of that work would be quickly undone if the previous slide’s prediction actually comes to fruition.

    So why not have “The Eater of Worlds” defeat John Cena—and furthermore have him win clean?

    As earlier acknowledged, Harper and Rowan will most likely be at ringside. But if Wyatt were to win without needing their assistance, it would put him over in a massive way.

    Simple yet shockingbeating Cena at WrestleMania would elevate Wyatt to the very top of the company’s list of monster heels.

Cena Joins the Wyatt Family

    But a clean win for Wyatt might be something of a waste, given the potential of this feud.

    Exploiting said potential would make for a far better payoff—such as forcing Cena to join the Wyatt Family.

    On Raw this past week, we saw Cena wear a similar jumpsuit to the one that Bryan wore when he was briefly converted into a follower of Bray. Granted, it was out of choice, but could this have been a subtle piece of foreshadowing from the WWE?

    What if Wyatt and family somehow force Cena to follow the Buzzards?

    It would be a great addition to this gripping rivalry and could even be used as a chance to test the water for that elusive Cena heel turn that so many have clamoured for.

    On that note, maybe I’m getting a little carried away here...

Cena Has to Resort to Cheating

4 of 5

    For me, this would be the best possible finish.

    I spoke earlier about how a loss for Wyatt could damage his momentum, but this scenario would avoid that. By making Cena resort to cheating, Wyatt would gain the moral victory and stay true to his belief of having the world see Cena the way Wyatt does (see the end of the above video).

    Sure, in most sports, a moral victory is nothing on an official win. But this isn’t sports; it's professional wrestling. And thus Wyatt prioritising the corruption of Cena over a tick in the win column would further build his strange and twisted persona.

    This could even be used in conjunction with the previous idea. If Cena is forced to cheat, then he will have sold himself out and gone against all that he claims to stand for. There would be little else to do but to give in to Wyatt and pledge himself to the family.

    Such a finish would be entirely in keeping with nature of this feud. It’s never been about whose more technically giftedthis is about telling a story.

Conclusion

    Of course, some of these speculated finishes could prolong this feud.

    That’s something that I wouldn’t be at all opposed too, and given that Wyatt and Cena are set to be working post-WrestleMania live shows together, that could be a sign that this is only the beginning.

    Whatever happens this Sunday, though, I have faith that Cena, Wyatt and WWE Creative will each deliver the goods and provide us with an entertaining addition to the WrestleMania card.

    But what do you guys think about this one?

    Do you see any of these finishes becoming a reality or perhaps have your own theories on how it will go down?
