WWE Rumours: WWE teasing John Cena vs Undertaker match for WrestleMania 33
Will we see the Dead Man go up against with the Franchise player at the 'Show of Shows?
It's pretty well known that WWE had plans for their franchise player John Cena to challenge The Undertaker at last year's WrestleMania, which were nixed later due to the injury of Cena. It looks like the WWE officials have not given up on the possibilities of making this dream match happen at the grandest stage of them all just yet.
WWE recently posted a video on their official YouTube channel which takes a look at the top 5 possible opponents for Cena in the near future. Interestingly, the video list which includes several top WWE and NXT stars was topped by none other than the former WWE World Champion The Undertaker.
Other names in the list include the likes of Current NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe, SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon and Former Universal Champion Finn Balor.
As Inquisitr noted, this could very well mean that the company is still planning to make this dream match happen in the future and it could be WWE's way of teasing the upcoming bout between the two WWE Legends.
A match of this caliber would not only bring an immense amount of media coverage but will also create a massive buzz on social media and it would only be fitting for WWE to make it happen at a stage as big as WrestleMania. However, booking this match will not be an easy task for WWE as the Undertaker allegedly considers himself to be done with wrestling and was heard saying that his match at WrestleMania 32 was his last wrestling adventure.
It's notable here that several sources reported during WrestleMania 32 season that WWE was planning to do a match between John Cena and Undertaker at the biggest PPV of WWE. Many believed it was supposed to be the retirement match for the Last Outlaw, which would have been similar to the match between Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair at WrestleMania 24.
These plans were unfortunately canceled after Cena suffered a shoulder injury forcing him to miss more 5 months of in-ring action. Due to the injury to Cena, the Undertaker ended up facing Shane McMahon in a historical Hell In a Cell Match that saw the Phenom come out on top.
