Despite them not crossing paths at Raw's 25th anniversary a match between The Undertaker and John Cena at WrestleMania 34 could still happen.
One of the most highly anticipated parts of Raw's 25th anniversary this past Monday was the return of The Undertaker. After nine months of speculation, fans convinced themselves that they were finally going to get a definitive answer one way or the other. In fact, there were rumors that The Deadman would clash with John Cena on the show, thus setting up a showdown between the two at WrestleMania 34.
Not only did that not happen, but the whole Undertaker segment in the Manhattan Center was pretty lackluster and incredibly frustrating. The Phenom came to the ring, without the lights being dimmed which felt very strange and gave a cryptic speech about his victims in WWE now being able to rest in peace. It could have been a retirement speech, but if it was it was a pretty poor one.
While Taker was confusing people in Manhattan, Cena was getting a guitar smashed over his back in Brooklyn. Despite all of that though Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer has reported that the two of them will still be clashing at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. The build may not have begun on Raw but it is due to start at some point in the next few weeks.
If that is the case, then there will be continued question marks over whether The Undertaker should be stepping back inside a ring at all. His possible retirement match last year against Roman Reigns was a poor one that really showed up The Deadman's flaws brought about by old age. If anyone can mask those flaws though it's John Cena and The Phenom undoubtedly realizes that.
Whether we want to see The Undertaker perform again or not is an opinion that many fans wrestle with on a daily basis. Someone who has been a constant in WWE for so long is hard to let go of, however, most of us would rather remember him at his peak rather than see him wrestle himself into the ground, or even worse take years off his life by doing so. If a match with Cena is happening, then it would arguably be the perfect send-off for one of the greatest Superstars of all time.
