The Undertaker's opponent for WrestleMania 34 has finally been revealed, and the WWE Universe is going to go insane for it.
Last year it seemed as though The Undertaker's in-ring career could have possibly come to an end, as he suffered his second-ever loss at WrestleMania to "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 33.
After the match Taker took off his signature robe, hat, and gloves before ceremoniously leaving them in the center of the ring. Many fans believed that this was Taker's way of saying bye to the WWE Universe and subtly announcing his retirement from professional wrestling.
As the months continued on, however, speculation began to arise as to whether or not Taker actually is done inside the ring. Taker was backstage at this past Tuesday's episode of SmackDown Live, and while it wasn't confirmed why he was there, it's being speculated it was to go over plans for his WWE TV return.
Taker is scheduled to appear on the 25th Anniversary Show of Monday Night RAW on January 22nd. Speculation fired up on a potential Undertaker return at WrestleMania 34 when a report broke suggesting that WWE's plans for John Cena will be bigger than any of the title matches on the card.
This lead to fans believing that John Cena vs. The Undertaker could be WWE's plans for the upcoming WrestleMania event in New Orleans. Now a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has confirmed those plans.
Both John Cena and The Undertaker will be in New York for RAW's 25th Anniversary show, where their big angle will be shot to begin their build-up to WrestleMania 34.
There will certainly be a mixed reaction from fans about this.
While a John Cena vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania has been wanted for a long time, many believe now it's too late as Taker is well past his prime and the match won't be as good as it could have been five or ten years ago.
