One of the precious few dream matches left in the WWE is the clash of John Cena and the Undertaker at WrestleMania.
Admittedly, it would have meant more if ‘Taker was still undefeated, but after two losses to Brock Lesnar and then Roman Reigns, the Deadman now boasts a record of 23-2 at the Grandaddy of Them All.
Undertaker’s status has been left up in the air after his loss to Reigns at ‘Mania 33 in Orlando, but many believed the 52-year-old retired after leaving his famous trench coat and hat in the ring following the defeat.
However, he has never officially retired and while John Cena has turned into a part-time performer this year, he is still gunning for a record-breaking 17th world title.
The Leader of the Cenation is the bookies’ favourite to win the 2018 Royal Rumble and thus, headline WrestleMania in New Orleans.
But a ‘leaked’ image of Cena Vs the Undertaker for WrestleMania 34 has been doing the rounds on social media and fans are getting excited.
It turns out this ‘poster’ is a fan-made image and has been around for nearly 12 months. It’s not something that has come directly from the company and, therefore, it’s unlikely we are getting Cena Vs ‘Taker.
Or are we? According to Twitter account @WrestleVotes (the same account that broke the story about Neville walking out on WWE) the match is certainly ‘on the table’.
Hearing Taker vs Cena is not definite but certainly “on the table”. Many in WWE are still convinced Taker is done, hip surgery or not. Could be a result of his direct relationship with Vince. He only needs to tell him, & no one else. And Vince keeps everything w/ Taker hush.

If ‘Taker was still undefeated and Cena was going for his 17th world title against the Phenom, it would be one of the biggest matches in WrestleMania history. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to make that match now and plenty of fans hope ‘Taker is truly retired.
Despite having hip surgery, the way the veteran was moving against Reigns last year was certainly a cause for concern.
Anymore big-time matches may end up being detrimental to ‘Taker’s glorious legacy, but knowing the WWE, there’s a reason he hasn’t officially retired yet. It will be a huge deal when he does.
It’s more likely we’ll see Cena challenge the WWE champion at WrestleMania – the bookies are rarely wrong.
