One of many prime storylines heading into WrestleMania 34 on Sunday is John Cena’s persistent calling out of The Undertaker for a match at WWE’s greatest present of the 12 months.
The Lifeless Man laid down his coat and hat in the midst of the ring after final 12 months’s WrestleMania 33 loss to Roman Reigns, signifying the anticipated finish to his WWE tenure.
‘Taker returned for an odd, rambling promo at Uncooked 25 and we haven’t seen him on tv since. Cena proceeded to name out Undertaker for a match at ‘Mania, Child Rock was introduced as a Corridor of Famer, and every little thing appeared to be falling into place for the American Dangerous Ass to make his grand return to the stage.
Chris Jericho, nonetheless, is pondering in any other case, per his look on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio:
“Taker loves it, however guess which character Vince McMahon loves — The Undertaker, it’s his best creation. I’ll be the Satan’s Advocate to you guys, I’d really feel somewhat upset if it was the American Dangerous Ass as a result of I like The Undertaker and I like that entrance. There’s by no means been an entrance like that in wrestling, in my view. I really feel as if if it had been the American Dangerous Ass, it might be somewhat little bit of a downer, for me,” mentioned Jericho
“When you’ve 70,000 folks within the Superdome, the place 60,000 of them don’t even bear in mind what the American Dangerous Ass is. We haven’t spoken concerning the American Dangerous Ass, we haven’t had any video packages or recollections. We’re going to have a bunch of individuals going, ‘what is that this?’ I believe it’s a extremely cool debating level if you realize wrestling and also you’re a large wrestling fan and also you’ve been watching since 2000. There’s lots of people who’ve began watching within the final three or 4 or 5 years. There’s plenty of John Cena followers who don’t know what occurred in 2000. For my part, the hardcores who want to see it as a result of it’s one thing completely different, whereas your common wrestling fan will go nuts when The Undertaker’s music hits. I’m 100 p.c sure it’s going to be The Undertaker at WrestleMania and to not the American Dangerous Ass.”
Jericho has a incredible level right here, however every little thing traces up method too completely for WWE to not at the very least contemplate bringing again the American Dangerous Ass. In case you want a refresher:
Regardless of how their match begins (assuming it really goes down), hopefully the phase begins with Cena sipping brews within the entrance row along with his finest buddies in New Orleans earlier than leaping into the ring and tossing fingers with the Lifeless Man.
