According to Dave Meltzer, the plan is for the Undertaker and John Cena to face off at WrestleMania. John Cena has been teasing a "huge announcement" for the past few weeks and it's believed that the challenge will be issued by Cena as part of Raw's 25th anniversary show in 11 days. I might be in the minority here, but, as of right now, this just doesn't excite me because it's common knowledge that Taker simply can't go anymore. Also, it really just seems like a couple of part timers going at it with neither of them having anything to gain. Taker's streak is gone and Roman Reigns beat him last year and this is John Cena we're talking about, so the notion that beating Taker at WrestleMania now would be some mega accomplishment for Cena is seven shades of bullshit. Unfortunately though, I have a feeling that's exactly the route they're gonna take with this, that Cena is gonna go with the whole "facing the Undertaker at WrestleMania is the only mountain I haven't climbed" chestnut and it simply doesn't ring true because Taker's status at WrestleMania has diminished and because Cena's a friggin' 16 time World Champion; the proverbial torch has already been passed. So, yet again, instead of using Taker to elevate someone who can still benefit from being in a match against him, we truly have a match in which there's nothing to be gained. With that being said, I think I could be interested in this depending on exactly how they lay this out at Raw 25. If it's just the whole "mutual respect" garbage, I'm out. Now, if Cena interrupts Taker while Taker is in the midst of giving what looks to be a goodbye speech and swaggers around like he's some cocky bastard like we saw with his program with Roman Reigns, then MAYBE this could be a story worth watching play out. Still, again, if this is indeed the plan, there are a couple of positives to come out of all this. This means that Cena won't be in the Royal Rumble this year and won't challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. Yes, they had a fantastic match at last year's Rumble but having guys like Cena or Orton win the Rumble is just a lousy waste of the format; besides, I'm in no mood to see Cena humble Styles just for the sake of another vanity run in which WWE can "unquestionably" crown Cena as the "greatest of all time" due to conquering Ric Flair's official record of 16 World Championship runs instead of merely tying it. So, this leaves the Royal Rumble pretty much wide open for someone on SmackDown to win given that Lesnar vs. Reigns for the Universal Championship is still the plan.
