WWE Rumours: Undertaker's opponent for Wrestlemania 33

f

The Undertaker is appearing on SmackDown Live this week. The historic 900th episode needs a historic challenge to be made.

WWE can’t let a tag match on RAW be their only modern clash

There have been some recent rumours stating that instead of doing the obvious, WWE is considering running with Randy Orton vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33.

Not only has it been done before, but the clock continues to tick on the dream match between Cena and The Undertaker, a match that hasn’t happened since back when Cena was a rookie. Orton and ‘Taker wrestled each other at WrestleMania in 2005 and spent the rest of that year duking it out.

Orton was a relative rookie as well at the time, but they had a lengthy feud with a solid resolution. Cena ran his mouth for a bit while ‘Taker was injured. When he returned, the Dead Man put Cena’s foot in that mouth and that was all she wrote.

The time, to coin a phrase, is now. In less than one week, The Undertaker will be appearing on the 900th episode of SmackDown. John Cena can surely make a quick stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena to make history on an already historic episode.

For all intents and purposes, there has never been a match between John Cena and The Undertaker. Both men and their characters are so far removed from what they were more than 12 years ago. Cena is the top guy, the biggest star in the entire company, bar none.

The Undertaker has reached true legendary status and when he decides to show up, it’s a very big deal. It’s essentially the “Once In A Lifetime” match that WWE promoted between Cena and The Rock a few years back.

Vengeance 2003 was a very long time ago

Except they have the chance to really make good on that promise. John Cena will only be around for a couple more years and the clock is constantly ticking on The Undertaker. It will answer the question once and for all, “Who would win, John Cena or The Undertaker?”

If they wrestled at WrestleMania XXX, I would have called it a toss-up, but since Brock Lesnar broke The Streak at that show, it’s no longer a toss-up. I would say that chances are lower than ever for an Undertaker loss at WrestleMania now.

He’s going to have that single blemish on his record, but nothing else. Undertaker wins, they shake hands, Cena quietly exits and WrestleMania goes off the air with The Undertaker posing in the ring, possibly for the final time.

That can all be started on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live. Come on, WWE. It’s the only match either man should be part of at WrestleMania 33.
