John Cena Comments On His Rumored Match with The Undertaker


We’ve been hearing so much about a potential John Cena vs. The Undertaker match at WrestleMania 33, and while this match is far from confirmed, it’s still one of the most likely possibilities for WWE’s flagship pay-per-view. And by the looks of things, Cena vs. ‘Taker may be one tiny step closer to becoming reality, as Cena told ESPN in a recent interview that he wouldn’t mind wrestling the “Deadman” at the biggest, grandest, wrestling show of WWE’s calendar year.

The topic of The Undertaker’s opponent at WrestleMania 33, should he be clear to compete at the event, has been the subject of great debate, but no name has popped up as often as John Cena’s. But just like the Undertaker vs. Sting match that many had been hoping for back when Sting was still considered an active wrestler, ‘Taker and Cena have actually crossed paths in previous years.

It should be mentioned that those few ‘Taker vs. Cena matches were in years when John had yet to become the wrestling megastar he is today, and now that the leader of the Cenation is still considered the “face of WWE,” the possibility of him facing the man who once went undefeated at WrestleMania for 21 straight years is more interesting than ever. And, as WrestlingNews.co speculated, it may possibly be a Career vs. Championship match, assuming either man is WWE World Champion at that time, and The Undertaker is really retiring after one final WrestleMania appearance.

In his interview with ESPN, Cena touched on several topics, but most notably commented on The Undertaker, whom he had favorably compared to the late Andre the Giant, another larger-than-life figure who dominated his opponents back in his time in WWE.

“Undertaker certainly is a cornerstone of WWE, and just as I say to myself that I really would have liked to been able to get to know and certainly get in the ring with Andre the Giant, just because of all the respect and folklore that went around with Andre, I think The Undertaker has that same sort of respect and folklore around him.”

But what about John Cena vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania 33? ESPN asked John about the rumored “dream match” that many fans are looking forward to, and he said that he’s all for it, should it be booked for the event.

“If you’re asking if I’d want to be in a high-profile match with one of the most legendary superstars in the industry, my answer is yes,” said Cena
