COOKING WITH GAS: Bryan can go, he's in a match against Shane McMahon at 'Mania.

McGregor is expected to make his return to the Octagon at UFC 219 in December, with White keen for him to face interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. WrestleMania 31 was the last time Cena had a title match at the show when he defeated Rusev for the United States Championship.
