Well, that was quick.
Just one night after the two shot an angle backstage at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in Philadelphia, WWE has announced that John Cena vs. Rusev is now official for the upcoming Fast Lane event scheduled for Sun., Feb. 22, 2015, at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.
Per the Office of The Authority and COO @TripleH: @JohnCena will face @RusevBUL at the #WWEFastLane on the @WWENetwork. @WWE— The Authority (@WWEsAuthority) January 27, 2015
It's been rumored for some time that Cena vs. Rusev was the planned direction for WrestleMania 31 and this would seem to support that. Actually, this lines up perfectly for Rusev to score a PPV win over Cena leading to the rematch at the biggest show of the year.
We shall see.
So far, Cena vs. Rusev is the only match confirmed for the event but we'll pass along any more updates as they become available.
