One of the biggest questions facing WrestleMania this year is the opponent for The Undertaker. It’s been pretty much accepted that the original plan was Brock Lesnar, until they blew off that feud back at the Hell in a Cell Pay Per View. Next, the consensus favorite was John Cena, in one of the last “dream matches” left for the Dead Man, but that got scuttled when Cena had shoulder surgery in January. Other names that have been floated include Kevin Owens, Sting, and for some reason, Wyatt Family member Braun Strowman. The most recent rumor is that WWE has a big surprise planned for who The Undertaker’s opponent will be, and it may not be someone who is currently on the active roster. With that in mind (at least partially, we deviated when we thought it necessary and/or cool), we wracked our brains and came up with a list of Superstars who we think could potentially be the man across the ring from the Dead Man at WrestleMania.
10. John Cena
Okay, so, apparently WWE has said it won’t be Cena, the man himself has said he’s still a long way away in recovering from shoulder surgery, and this is one of those super long-shots. But WWE lies all the time, and this wouldn’t be the first time that Cena has hidden the extent of an injury in order to make a huge surprise return for far smaller events than the biggest WrestleMania of all time. You know that WWE wants him there if at all possible, and Cena almost certainly wouldn’t want to miss the event either, even if it meant that he’d have to take additional time off post-Mania to get back to rehabbing his shoulder. The guy is already posting photos of himself doing 9-hour days at the gym and lifting ridiculous amounts of weight, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that WWE and Cena could be lying to us again in order to have a big surprise when he’s announced as Undertaker’s opponent. Honestly, if there’s a chance Cena can go, he’s probably still one of the best options.
