Undertaker Vs. John Cena At WrestleMania, According To Dave Meltzer

The dream match is most certainly on, according to the Wrestling Observer.

The Undertaker will return to face John Cena at WrestleMania 34, according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The Deadman appeared to have retired at WrestleMania 33, following defeat to Roman Reigns. He left his hat, coat, and gloves in the ring, and seemed to bid farewell to the crowd as he made his exit. Reigns' follow-up promo on the next night's Raw - in which he said 'This is my yard now' - seemed to confirm as much.

However, 'Taker's apparent retirement was never officially confirmed by WWE - and even if it had been, retirements in professional wrestling are often gone back on.

Despite this, the sheer finality of the Orlando bout seemed to signify a legitimate retirement. The notion of an Undertaker return has already been met with fan criticism for this very reason.

Meltzer has also speculated that the match will be set up on the Raw 25th anniversary show, which takes place on January 22nd. WWE have already confirmed that both Undertaker and Cena will be appearing on the show.

Cena vs. Undertaker was originally speculated for WrestleMania 33, but Cena instead faced The Miz and Maryse alongside Nikki Bella.

Bruce Pritchard - who managed Undertaker in his earliest WWE appearance as Brother Love - recently stated that they met around Thanksgiving, and that 'Taker looked and felt better than he had in the past 10 years.

However, Pritchard also stated that Undertaker denied that he'd be returning to the ring - while also acknowledging that the Deadman's annual returns have become something of a running joke between the pair.

Undertaker's match with Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32 also prompted speculation that he had retired. After winning, he left his gloves in the middle of the ring.

There was also some speculation at the time that his loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 would be Undertaker's final match, but he of course returned the following year to defeat Bray Wyatt.
