Wrestlemania 30

John Cena has seemingly been targeted by the leader of The Wyatt Family, the sick and demented Bray Wyatt. Bray Wyatt and his two followers have attacked Cena on two different WWE PPV’s – Royal Rumble 2014 and Elimination Chamber 2014. Bray Wyatt berated both Cena and Hogan on a previous edition of RAW, which further angered Cena. Their feud has now escalated to the point where Cena opted to not participate in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal because he’d rather face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania XXX.
