John Cena vs. The Undertaker is no longer in the works for WrestleMania 33, according to a new report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The match was nixed after Vince McMahon changed his mind.
There’s been speculation on The Undertaker challenging for a title at WrestleMania but as of this week, he is not scheduled to challenge for the WWE Title or the WWE Universal Title. There’s also been speculation on Taker vs. Braun Strowman but that match is not in the works, at least as of this week.

Cena….so Vince wanted it last year, couldn’t have it bc Cena was injured. This year, he can have it and chooses to change in mind and not have it.
Strowman….oh God no. Fan backlash cancelled this last year so if this is the plan, I suspect the same backlash. However unlike last year, they are seriously building him up now and WWE usually saves Taker for these types. Kamala, Gonzalez, Khali, Taker had long feuds with all of them. And we know Vince is such a byproduct of his own era that he repeats history in many forms so…..
Of course, could just be the typical Meltzer rumor that doesn’t turn out to be true so take with a grain of salt as the old saying goes.
