After an initial squash victory by The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34, John Cena versus The Undertaker II appears to be high on the priority list for this year's SummerSlam.
Prior to their last bout, John Cena spent weeks calling out The Undertaker. Cena had suffered multiple embarrassing losses and wanting a match at the biggest WWE show of the year, he found that the only other worthy opponent who didn't have a dance partner was The Undertaker. After WrestleMania 34 came and went Cena learned that one ought to be careful what they wish for.
Much to the delight of the WWE Universe, The Undertaker returned and in a matter of minutes, dispatched of the former multi-time champion and leader of C-Nation, showing that The Deadman still had what it took to hang with the best in the wrestling business. After that match, neither Cena nor The Undertaker has been around much in WWE.
While Cena promised not to leave WWE for his budding Hollywood career and rumors persisted that The Undertaker might return more often than once a year in WWE, neither WWE Superstars has been visible on many of the WWE programs since their match in April and the Greatest Royal Rumble that took place in Saudi Arabia. But, with one of WWE's biggest events around the corner, it looks as though fans may finally get to see Taker vs. Cena again.
Along with rumored matches like Brock Lesnar versus Roman Reigns (or Bobby Lashley) Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey and AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe, Cena vs. The Undertaker II may be one of the highlighted bouts of the evening.
If this match is, in fact, a go, it will be interesting to see how WWE books the bout. Cena put Undertaker over in a fashion very unlike matches Cena is typically involved in. That match was all about making The Undertaker look strong. Will The Undertaker return the favor? Or, will this match be more about making sure both stars shine? Maybe it will be Cena's turn to get the decisive victory?
