As a fan, what match are you most looking forward to?
John Cena: Shane-Undertaker because of what’s at stake—the stakes are what determines how important a match is. Yes, we all want to be champion, but Shane returning after a seven year absence to only have one match and if he loses, he’s gone. If he wins, things change drastically. If he beats the Undertaker I can confidently say that’s probably the last time we are going to see the Undertaker because if the Undertaker is as good as he says he is, for him to lose to someone coming off a seven year sabbatical, maybe you’ve lost a step kid. Maybe its time to move aside.

WWE Hall of Famer Edge spoke to WWE’s website and gave his prediction for the Hell In a Cell match between The Undertaker and Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32 tomorrow:
“This match is the toughest to call. I know personally what The Deadman can do at ‘Mania, which is to say, something no one else can do. Shane is a maniac, in a good way. For the sake of the industry, I want Shane to win. But he’s rollin’ snake eyes. Never bet against The Undertaker.”
Sting says he’s most looking forward to seeing Hell In a Cell with Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker because of his interest in Taker and everything that’s at stake. Sting says he’s ready for some swerves on Sunday. You can see a video of Sting’s interview below:
While Vince said this WM would be Taker’s last if he lost, he didn’t say it’d be his last match. He simply said “Taker’s last” so that is left open to interpretation and the question of whether that loss would be Taker’s last match or just his last WM. I am of the opinion that WWE wants to have Taker vs John Cena, originally planned for this year’s WM, to take place at a future WM, perhaps next year in Orlando. If that is true, this will not be Taker’s last WM meaning he will win. On the other hand, it is possible Taker may have told WWE that this will be it for him meaning that he would lose.
Edge is correct is saying this is the toughest one to call. It could go either way. It is probably the most unpredictable match on the card. But as Edge stated, never bet against Taker, especially at WM.
I agree with Sting. I just hope the swerve doesn’t result in a Taker loss at a Texas WM. I just cannot see Taker having his 2nd WM loss in his home state and to Shane Mcmahon. If that happened, it’d be worse that Lesnar breaking The Streak because unlike Shane, at least Lesnar’s an actual athlete while Shane’s a stuntman.
