What matches simply must happen at the next WrestleMania event?

We are still over 5 months away from WrestleMania 33 on April 2, 2017, but some matches are already rumoured, and others just need to happen to make this another memorable Florida WrestleMania.

The show is probably going to be 6 hours long (WrestleMania 32 was 6 and ½ hours including the kickoff show, so we have precedent here), so at least 12 matches can fit on the card. That’s how many last year’s show had.

It will be a pick ‘em for the ones that would go on the kickoff, so I won’t specify which would show up on the pre-show.

#12 John Cena vs. The Undertaker

Seriously, how have they avoided this match for so darn long?

It has been rumoured for years, and this may be the last year it can happen. That is what everybody said last year and the year before, though, yet Undertaker ended up wrestling 4 (!!) matches overall in 2015. He also wrestled 3 times on the European tour between his third and fourth televised matches.

So maybe this isn’t the last time this match has the chance to happen, but it’s the right year. WWE is going to likely keep John Cena out of the WWE World Title picture, at least for a while (hopefully). The Undertaker barely ever shows up, and this is the epitome of dream matches. Their only other big match was a PPV match all the way back in 2003.

This match is immense – both as a spectacle and a send-off –  and if The Undertaker retires before we can see him wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania, then a great travesty would have occurred.
