WWE fans in Atlanta were disappointed when The Undertaker didn't show up to answer John Cena's challenge at WrestleMania 34, and were left to see the 16-time World Champion rip The Deadman for being a coward who "left his balls at home."
Earlier rumors suggested that 'Taker would appear on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw to accept Cena's challenge. Now, it looks like we'll have to wait until the day of WrestleMania to see if Undertaker will have one more match.
In the meantime, fans can't help but wonder just where Undertaker was during Raw. A fan took to Twitter and asked his wife, Michelle McCool, and the former Women's Champion gave an answer:

Cagesideseats.com also added to this, saying Undertaker didn't appear because WWE didn't feel the need to promote their match, thanks to the plethora of epic matches already on the card.
Unless Undertaker is planning to give his answer on tonight's episode of SmackDown Live, the folks in New Orleans will likely get quite a surprise when he finally accepts Cena's challenge for one final ride.
Though it's easy to understand that WWE didn't feel it was necessary to have 'Taker and Cena build up their feud together, you can't help but wonder how epic their promos would have been.
Cena did an excellent job teasing and hyping up the match by calling out The Deadman and taking multiple shots at him. Having Undertaker respond the way he usually does with his opponents at WrestleMania would have been epic, but the creative team obviously didn't see it was necessary here.
At this point, it'd be a major shock if the match didn't take place, and there'd be no point in Cena hyping up the fight if it wasn't going to happen. It's just a unique approach by the creative team to build it up, and we fans can only hope Undertaker's pending "yes," is done so in epic fashion.
