Many people have been speculating who John Cena’s next opponent for the United States Championship would be. Based on the events of Raw this, we may have our answer.
On the post-Raw edition of Wrestling Observer Radio on F4WOnline.com, Dave Meltzer speculated that Cena will be defending his title against Dolph Ziggler at Hell in a Cell. This seeds for this match may have been planted in closing segment of Raw, as Ziggler tried to help Cena as he was being beaten down by The New Day, but ended up tagging him with a superkick instead.
Part of this future storyline may also come from the season finale of Total Divas, which aired last week on the E! Network. Ziggler and Nikki Bella used to be a couple, and in the final scene of the episode, Ziggler admitted that he still had feelings for her, even though she is now Cena’s girlfriend. Ziggler then tried to kiss Bella, as the screen went to black with the words “To Be Continued.”
Ziggler has most recently been involved in a storyline with Rusev and Summer Rae, defeating Rusev at the Night of Champions pay-per-view. Cena recently defeated Seth Rollins to retain his United States Championship at a WWE live event at Madison Square Garden that aired Saturday night on the WWE Network.
