Many WWe fans over the years have talked about the potential dream match of The Undertaker squaring off against John Cena at WrestleMania.
With the Undertaker seemingly retired it appears that the match will never take place and Cena, who was a recent guest on Edge & Christian’s E&C Pod of Awesomeness, talked about why the match never came to be.
“We have to do the best for WrestleMania. Period” Cena said on the podcast.
“There were plans to do the right thing for WrestleMania and that match was not in the plans and that’s the best I can say.
“So many guys complain about not being in the last match, or a main event match, or with a certain partner. Man, if it was only work with people you’re comfortable with, I would’ve had another 10,000 matches with [Edge]. Like that’s the easy part. The difficult part as a professional is to take what they need you to do and make it creative.”
Cena vs Undertaker seems to be a missed opportunity for WWE who could have had epic WrestleMania matches such as Undertaker vs. Sting, Hogan vs. Flair, Stone Cold vs. Goldberg or even Shawn Michaels vs. The Rock, none of which came to fruition.
“In a perfect world, would I want to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania? That’s every pro wrestler’s dream” Cena said about the match.
“That’s any WWE Superstar’s dream, to work as pretty much the maestro of WrestleMania, at WrestleMania. That’s it.
But if the company’s success depends on me doing something else then my job is to do that something else and I think the way all that went, I don’t have any regrets on the way any of that went.
I think it was completely put together the right way. Would I have loved to do it? Yes! But I show up to work to do work.”
