While discussing John Cena’s promo on Monday’s episode of RAW during the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that the plan is still for Cena vs. The Undertaker at this year’s WrestleMania event, despite Cena indicating that WWE won’t allow for the match to happen.
“It’s definitely still in the books, for anyone that’s asking and Undertaker is still training for it.”
With Cena scheduled to appear at next month’s Fastlane event, Meltzer speculated that Cena could do a match against Nakamura, which would eventually play into the build to his match against The Undertaker for WrestleMania.
“What I am figuring is he will be in the Fastlane pay-per-view for a match. So they can’t — whatever that match may be — If they are doing that five way, the only match I could think of with him is Nakamura. So maybe they would do a match where he goes with Nakamura for the title shot at AJ and loses again. I don’t know. That is all speculation, but it seems to make the most sense to me. He’s on the Fastlane card, so it makes no sense to announce a WrestleMania match given whatever happens at Fastlane is playing into the storyline to get to WrestleMania and that match hasn’t happened yet.”
Metlzer also mentioned that they could add Cena to the WWE Championship match at Fastlane but Nakamura is the only top star on the SmackDown brand without a match.
