I would prefer Cena Ziggler over Cena Goldberg or Taker. And if they did a loser retires gimmick as a way for Cena to bow out and let Ziggler take his rightful place as top Heel (although with it being Cena it could backfire unless he does some proper nasty shit in the run up). 

Taker has to take his HoF place and enjoy his well earned retirement. Not risk having a shit match with Cena and possible injury
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

Quote Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that John Cena vs. AJ Styles is not the plan for WrestleMania 34 as WWE has him set for a bigger match.

Cena’s WrestleMania opponent will reportedly be made clear at the Raw 25th-anniversary show next month. That would likely mean that Cena will face someone like Undertaker, Batista or Goldberg.


Several angles for the top WrestleMania matches will be shot at the 25th anniversary of Raw on Monday, January 22. The speculation is that Cena’s opponent will be The Undertaker but that has yet to be confirmed



This is good news as I wasn’t exactly excited about the previously rumoured Cena vs Jinder Mahal match. At this point in his career it makes sense to use Cena in a big attraction role at major shows.

Of the potential opponents listed though I would say Batista is the most likely. A return for him has been rumoured for a while now and there is unfinished business between the two men plus it would be a top draw.

I think Goldberg is done with wrestling, he carried out his brief return to get his feel good moment, his family saw him in the ring live and he rounded off his career legacy in a much more satisfying way than he had previously. I could seem him making the odd appearance as a legend but I think he’s done in the ring.

The Undertaker I think is retired, he’s had surgery which apparently will prevent him wrestling and I find it hard to believe he would have done the retirement angle if it wasn’t legit. Never the less rumours persist about him working Wrestlemania this year and I guess they could run a angle where Cena tries to tempt The Undertaker back for one more match saying it’s the one big thing left for him to do and does Taker really want his legacy to end getting his ass kicked by Roman Reigns.

I think it’s harsh to say every match featuring The Undertaker since CM Punk was poor. The Lesnar match was disappointing but that was largely due to Taker suffering a concussion early in the match and carrying a hurt opponent is not Brock’s fortay. The Bray Wyatt match was not particularly memorable but I personally enjoyed his scrap with Roman last year even if it was clear that Undertaker’s age is catching up with him and he’s not quite the performer he once was.

Please not Taker especially given how he left after last year. If Cena isn't involved in the title match surely he's going to be Daniel Bryans pick to wrestle Shane for control of SD?

I don't see Cena vs Undertaker happening. You have to remember that any match featuring John Cena is automatically a big match.

Meltzer also doesn't cite his source. That means it could be absolutely anyone, or in fact nobody at all.

I know there is a long way to go but at the minute everything seems to be a bit random for John Cena.

This could either be because they are waiting a bit longer before they announce what he is doing at Mania or the fact that they (as you indicated above) have nothing at all for him to do but want to keep him in the fans mind and on TV every now and again.

I'd love to have seen Cena v Taker whilst Taker was still undefeated at Mania because that had the feel of one of the biggest matches of all time.

Theres no doubt in my mind they will give Cena another title run and maybe they are keeping him fresh for that and will start to use him more again after Mania

The Wrestlemania system involves spreading out their big name draws, particularly part timers, to try and make sure there's a reason for the casual to watch every match. Last Mania is a perfect example. Every match barr the women's SD match (which was initially pre-show for this reason) had a recognisable draw. Styles had Shane, Owens had Jericho, Miz had Cena, tag teams had Hardyz, Rollins had Triple H, Wyatt had Orton, Reigns had Undertaker.

That's one of the reasons I would expect to see Cena/Mahal still. Also, if The Undertaker returns the match will be awful. His surgery has left him severely limited in the mobility department and he was always of the opinion that when he could no longer do his leaping clothesline he was done with wrestling.

Taker is retired he left it all in the ring and coming back for another match is just not for him anymore the guy is 52 soon to be 53 years old and hurting I think its time he simply rests in peace. 

I am sad about that because WWE's decision making in the last 2 years I felt were wrong no one wanted Triple H vs Sting at WrestleMania we wanted Undertaker vs Sting, they could easily done Sting vs Triple H at the Royal Rumble with Sting getting the win.

And then Goldberg they squandered another dream match just to have 2 more matches with Brock Lesnar, they should've done the match at Survivor Series and then Taker vs Goldberg at WrestleMania not Roman Reigns. 

We missed out on many dream matches because of poor booking, ego and unfortunately some idiot who decided that Sting should be taking a belt buck powerbomb. 


For this card If I had to predict it I'd go with this 


Braun Strownman vs Triple H 

Charlotte Flair vs Carmella 

Alexa Bliss vs Asuka 

AJ Styles vs Finn Balor 

Bobby Roode vs Shinskue Nakumara 

Daniel Brian and Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn 

Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns 

Seth Rollins vs Jason Jordan (Kurt Angle Special guest referee) 

John Cena vs Samoa Joe 

The Bar vs Woken Matt and Brother Nero 

Uso's vs Rusev and Aiden English.  

Andre the Giant Battle Royale.

A couple months ago, I would have predicted Strowman's WrestleMania opponent would be Goldberg. Now that's looking less and less likely. Not only that, it's probably going to end up being Triple H.

However, I still think John Cena is going to get number 17 at WrestleMania, and other than that, I can't really predict much else for the card other than the Andre The Giant Battle Royal being on the main show, which they need at least some degree of star power in.

The Undertaker vs John Cena match will indeed happen at Wrestlemania 34 I believe. I aslo go out on a creative limb and say that a dream match of sorts may become even more special as the two part timers put theur careers on the line inside Hell in a Cell on the grandest stage of them all.

This storyline will begin at Royal Rumble. As many of you may already know Cena has entered in the Royal Rumble match so he will be there and I think Undertaker will rise from the dead and return in an infatict way to then be violently eliminated by John Cena.

We have not seem a very aggressive Cena for a while so the change will be hood for him. He will be set in his ways and determined to put the deadman down for good. Risking it all to end Takers career he puts his own career up on the line as well. Cena should eliminate Undertaker with an AA over the top onto the outside then do his famous You can't see me taunt with his cocky grin of achievement to the deadman laid waste on the outaide but Undertaker pops up and glares at Cena them taunts gis famous R.I.P Taker pulls Cena out eliminating him then chokeslams him through the announce table.

The rest will be history. Cena takes the victory and we say goodbye to Taker the right way.

At first I was sceptical but now I do believe Cena vs The Undertaker will happen at Wrestlemania this year.

I’m calling it now, on the 25th anniversary Raw we will see Taker come out and officially announce his retirement from the ring before Cena comes out and issues his challenge which will see Undertaker work one more match. I think this was always the plan and was why they have saved Cena vs Taker until now when they’ve had several opportunities to do the match previously.
