It has now been confirmed that AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble against the returning John Cena.

Cena made it clear that he’s not ready to roll over for the new era, and their match is one of the two that has been predicted by many for the last few weeks.

The other rumored match had The Phenomenal One defend his title against The Undertaker on January 29 inside of the Alamodome, before The Deadman and Cena would go on to do battle at WrestleMania 33.

Although, it looks as if WWE have switched up the plans to have Cena and Styles meet next month instead – but that doesn’t mean the leader of C-Nation won’t meet The Phenom in Orlando either.

With many assuming Cena will capture the championship at the Royal Rumble to end his feud with Styles, a leaked image has suggested a very different outcome could take place.

Ticketmaster.com posted a graphic of SmackDown Live’s Elimination Chamber event, which shows Styles will be defending his WWE Championship against Cena in a two out of three falls match.



The graphic was swiftly removed from the Ticketmaster website and has not been seen since, but not before people could save it.

The WWE often send these graphics out for promotional purposes, but it seems as if Ticketmaster got ahead of themselves and uploaded it much earlier than planned, and it’s likely that the WWE asked them to remove it.

This will certainly raise the question as to what the outcome could be, as Styles winning at the Royal Rumble shouldn’t automatically result in another title opportunity for Cena.
