5 reasons why Cena vs Undertaker should be the main event at Wrestlemania 34
John Cena is the only big name The Undertaker is yet to face at Wrestlemania. A match between the two has been teased numerous times with sources indicating that they were initially scheduled to face each other at Wrestlemania 32 before Cena suffered a shoulder injury. "The Dead Man" went to face Shane McMahon instead in a Hell in Cell match.
The match-up between these two legends is likely to be set at next week's 25th anniversary of Raw when The Undertaker returns. He is likely to ponder giving a retirement speech only to be interrupted and challenged by the leader of the Cenation. Cena vs Undertaker is a match the WWE universe has anticipated for in a long time and it is about time the WWE granted the fans their wishes. This is a dream match with years in the making.
Besides the Cena vs Undertaker match-up, there is another rumoured main event match for Wrestlemania pitting Roman Reigns against Brock Lesnar. This is the rumoured contest for the Universal Championship. Here are the 5 reasons why Cena vs Undertaker should instead be the main event at Wrestlemania 34.
#5 Cena vs Undertaker would be a first at Wrestlemania
The Undertaker began his Wrestlemania streak at Wrestlemania 7 in 1991 when he beat Jimmy Snuka. Overall, "The Dead Man" defeated 18 men during The Streak, which included three bouts with Triple H and two each against Kane and Shawn Michaels, as well as a handicap match against A-Train and Big Show at WrestleMania 19.
The one big name The Undertaker is yet to face at the show of shows is John Cena. Speculations of Cena facing the Undertaker began in 2011 before The Rock forced creative back to the drawing board after he challenged the leader of the Cenation to a match, a year in advance. Five years later, Cena was scheduled to face the Phenom at Wrestlemania 32 only for him to suffer a shoulder injury that saw him sidelined. The Cena-Taker match-up was therefore scrapped and The Undertaker faced the returning Shane McMahon instead. Last year, Cena was again pencilled to collide with the dead man at Wrestlemania 33 but Vince changed his minds as he wanted his new golden boy, Roman Reigns, to have the honour of defeating The Dead Man. This year, however, the match will most likely happen and the fans will be elated to finally see the dream match they have yearned for a long time. The main event spot for this huge encounter is therefore inevitable.
