A year from now, WrestleMania 34 will emanate from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This is where the ‘streak’ was broken by the Beast Incarnate, Barrrack Lessnar. This is a chance for the dead man to seek redemption.
But back to this year’s ‘Mania which is just about 9 days away. Undertaker’s match on April 2nd is expected to be a very short one because of his lingering hip injury. This injury was obvious during the Royal Rumble and it was obvious when ‘Taker took the spear from Roman Reigns. The reason why of all people: Roman Reigns, is The Undertaker’s opponent for next week’s WrestleMania is because management believes that this will be a draw for the casual fan. Management also believes that this will be a (*gulp*), passing of the torch if you will.
But it wasn’t supposed to be Roman Reigns. It was supposed to be John Cena. The change was brought about, because an injured ‘Taker versus John Cena won’t do justice to the technical aspect of wrestling. The Undertaker won’t be able to showcase his full repertoire against John Cena. Its a good thing that it is just Roman Reigns since Roman has a limited move set. The match should be pretty short to lessen the agony and pain for the dead man.
Next year at Mania 34, when the Undertaker all heals up from his upcoming hip surgery, he will be already to go and fight of what will be… an awesome ‘Slobberknocker’ with John Cena.
