Cena Vs Taker Reportedly Still Planned For WrestleMania, Mysterio
Friday, March 2, 2018
As seen on RAW last Monday night, John Cena teased a match against The Undertaker in an in-ring segment he had. Cena said that he was looking for a path to WrestleMania and had issued a challenge to The Undertaker, but WWE officials told him that it's impossible to make the match.
"I have figured out that I need to stand in this ring and do something that I should have done a long time ago, and that is to put out a WrestleMania challenge to the Undertaker!" Cena exclaimed to a huge pop from the crowd. "You want WrestleMania? That IS WrestleMania! And that match is not happening. I don't make the matches. As obvious as this seems, I've been told that the match is not happening because that match, once again, is impossible."
According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, it seems very unlikely that WWE would have the match mentioned on live television, only for it not to happen. Barrasso also indicated that the plan was changed and Cena was now scheduled to face Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania after it was ruled that The Undertaker will not be working the show. It was also added that Mysterio was backstage at SmackDown Live on Tuesday and is reportedly finalizing a deal with WWE by the end of the week. It was later reported that Mysterio was not backstage at SmackDown Live, rather he was backstage at the SmackDown Live Event this past Monday in San Diego and posted a photo after the show with Sin Cara.
According to Dave Meltzer in a recent edition of The
Newsletter, the plan for WrestleMania is still a Cena vs. The Undertaker Match as of this past Monday night. He noted that he hasn't heard of any changes in plans since, and that the only thing that would prevent that match would be if The Undertaker would pull out of the show for some reason, like getting injured during training. It was also noted that Cena's promo was to defer attention from the dream match until after he works the SmackDown Fastlane PPV.
Cena appeared on SmackDown Live this past Tuesday night and defeated WWE Champion
in a non-title match to earn a spot in the main event of Fastlane on Sunday, March 11th. WWE Champion
will now be defending his WWE Title in a Six-Pack Challenge against John Cena, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn,
and Dolph Ziggler in the main event of WWE Fastlane.
As for Mysterio, Meltzer said that he currently has no deal with WWE, but he has a meeting with Triple H scheduled very soon. A deal is reportedly dependent on Triple H clearing his schedule, as he is not looking to work full-time. There are also some other details that need to be ironed out, like opportunities outside of wrestling for Mysterio.
