These claims are interesting as it was reported just this morning by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer that The Undertaker vs. Cena is still in the books for this year’s WrestleMania event. It’s worth pointing out that Barrasso’s track record hasn’t been the greatest recently, so I’d take this report with a grain of salt for right now. We have reach out to other sources to confirm these claims and we’ll keep you updated if we receive any other details regarding Mysterio’s return or Cena’s WrestleMania opponent.
