I'm conflicted about it.  It's my first Mania in person, so I kind of like that I get to see a match between these two.  However, I would have loved something like Joe vs Cena or Styles vs Cena.  I'll be holding out hope that Cena can make it into a good live experience.

I just hope we don't get PWG Cena and the match ends up having 5 AA's and 4 Tombstones.

I'm astounded that anyone could possibly want or need to see another Undertaker match, or why from a booking perspective you'd take away the accolade of having retired him from the guy getting the world title push.

Cena/Taker at Mania should have happened years ago, when the streak meant something. Running it as a quasi-nostalgia/WRESTLEMANIA MOMENT! match, in 2018, is more proof that Mania may as well take place out of main continuity.

 

EDIT: Turns out I said something like this before, oh well.

 

I couldn't agree more. Cena being the one to break the streak around 2007 time is when it should have happened. Having Brock beat Taker and then Roman and this year likely Cena wont mean as much as it could have been.

That’s definitely the Cena we’ll get for a match like this.

Then sadly, I don't see the hype for this match at all. 09' John against a broken down Taker would be way more compelling to watch than Cena throwing Taker's body around for big spots and a bunch of nearfalls.

I'm not convinced. The match might be good because of physical limitations.

The match will probably look like shit mostly because of physical limitations. Taker has looked like shit the last two Manias already, and the matches don't get better because of it.

WWE's forced 'Big Match Drama' didn't help Reigns/Taker and it will not do Cena/Taker any favors at all. The "stay down!" stuff was cringeworthy and has become a WM staple. 

 

PWG Cena

HBK D Level soap opera 'emotions'

WWE speak

Self-conscious epic formula

Multiple kick-out of finishers

Crippled Undertaker 

 

All of these elements together spell 'trouble'.

That sounds to me like something my 7 year old nephew will love to watch with me. I hope you're motherfucking Jean Dixon.

I honestly don't see "PWG Cena" in this one if they do have a Mania match. I expect something that is a little more strait forward and built around selling and storytelling. We will probably get quite a few kick outs, but more in the WWE main event way than in the PWG way.

Yeah I'm not sure Taker will be taking multiple AA's if the match happens tbh.

Hard agree.

I thought he looked better physically than he has in a while. He had old man neck, yes, but the last few years it was painful to watch him even try to walk to the ring.

PWG Cena only works when it's him vs. the young guys.

What am I missing on Elias?  I see a solid gimmick that stands out because of how differently its presented in promos, but have yet to see him deliver a standout performance in the ring.
