WWE News: Undertaker/Cena Reportedly Not Happening, More on Plans for Taker

– There have been some major changes in WrestleMania plans over the last week or so, with the biggest one being that the proposed John Cena vs. Undertaker match is no longer going to happen. This match has been rumored for WrestleMania dating back to last year but the latest word is that Vince McMahon has soured on the idea and changed his mind.

– A lot of people have wondered why WWE brought back Undertaker on Smackdown and now had him appear on Raw to announce his participation at the Royal Rumble. The reason for this is when ‘Taker initially came back, the plan was for him to join Smackdown and build towards his match with Cena but now he is instead scheduled to face someone on the Raw roster at WrestleMania.

– While things can very well change over the next couple of weeks, as things stand right now, Undertaker is not expected to be involved in a title match at WrestleMania nor is he expected to face Braun Strowman, as was hinted at Raw this week.
