I think it’s pretty certain that John Cena vs. The Undertaker is happening. They wouldn’t build the match like this only for Taker to not respond. I’m surprised there was no sign of him on any of the shows leading up to Mania, but it keeps people wondering in the back of their mind: maybe he won’t show. I’m betting not only on the return of the Undertaker, but specifically of the American Badass. He seemed to retire the true Undertaker gimmick last year, and Kid Rock is being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. It fits.
The biggest question here: match quality. John Cena can carry a damn match, there’s no question about that. But after what we’ve seen the past couple years from Undertaker, what kind of action can we expect to see? We know we’re not going to see chain wrestling and moonsaults in this one. What we will see is the spectacle of two of the greatest wrestlers to ever step into the ring, on the grandest stage of them all, in a match that in all likelihood ends the full-time career of John Cena, and the overall career of Undertaker. It’s hard to nitpick on technique and match flow when considering those circumstances. People have been clamoring for this match for years, and we finally get it. I’m going to enjoy the hell out of it.
With two Wrestlemania losses under his belt, it’s not like Undertaker HAS to win. However, he will. WE need him to win. Obviously the tradition is to go out on your back. That’s not what we want to see. We want to cheer one more Undertaker victory. We want to see Big Evil stand victorious one more time. This one should be the main event.
Do you want to see Undertaker win, or should he do the job? Any chance he doesn’t show?
