Panic is in the air! Will the Undertaker be ready in time for Wrestlemania 27? What is going to happen if The Undertaker doesn't make it to Wrestlemania? Oh No! What shall we do? I'm pretty sure we will survive. Let's face it, The Undertaker is going to retire soon. He is not getting any younger and the injuries will only add up. Time is not of the Deadman's side.
And I think we will be better off without an Undertaker match at Wrestlemania. Instead of forcing the same old storylines (i.e. Kane vs Undertaker) down our throats, WWE Creative will have to start using there brains and think up something new and fresh. It is time to move forward.
The Undertaker also has a strong ego and the WWE is helping to fuel this even more. When was the last time you saw him put over any young talent? Just the idea of having an undefeated streak at Wrestlemania gives Taker a super ego. The Undertaker has a feud with someone and unless you are a big star, you are going to get buried. Boy this sure sounds similiar to another current WWE super star.
The Undertaker has one of the weirdest gimmicks in the history of WWE. If you stop to think about it, we have this "Deadman" Undertaker with an off and on manager named Paul Bearer. We have casket matches and buried alive matches. Paul Bearer uses odd magic from his urn to help the Undertaker. I'm sorry, but I can't be the only one who thinks this is just...weird.
But if we are going to have an Undertaker match at Wrestlemania it might as be with the other most overrated wrestler in WWE history, John Cena.
The face of WWE, John Cena has much of these same properties as The Undertaker. We have our "Hustle and Loyalty and Respect" and those are good morals to teach our kids. He gets the crowd going but he really doesn't know how to approach the dislike towards him. I have one exception for this and it was after his win at Wrestlemania 26 where he got up close to the anti-cena crowd and kind of shrugged. This actually pleased some of the anti-Cena fans.
Cena is Hogan 2.0 just not as good. Cena doesn't have the mic skills as Hogan does. Cena isn't bad on the mic but he doesn't have those catch phrases Hogan had. He just doesn't have the same charisma especially as a face. And not having as much charisma can be made up in the ring, however his ring skills just don't make the cut.
Cena's current gimmick is very stale. Even with Cena in the Nexus, he is just a pouty wrestler having to do with others say. This is just the same old Cena. Nothing has changed.
Come on WWE...you know you want to do it. Let us get the two most overrated wrestlers in the WWE have them square off on the biggest night of sports entertainment.
Let the snooze fest begin.
