Backstage WrestleMania 28 News on HHH-Taker and John Cena

– Shawn Michaels is scheduled to be the special referee for the Undertaker vs. Triple H match at WrestleMania. Since Triple H and Shawn Michaels have both failed twice at ending the streak, it lends something to the idea that they could work together to screw Undertaker.

Triple H might put his career on the line against the streak. The Undertaker vs. Triple H match will be promoted as the #2 match on the card, behind Cena vs. Rock.

– John Cena recently mentioned that his match vs. The Rock at WrestleMania would be even bigger if it was for the WWE championship. At the time he made the comments, WWE was strongly considered putting the title on Cena heading into WrestleMania.

The WWE title being on the line would make the match seem bigger and elevate the status of the WWE title. Additionally, if the title wasn’t on the line in this match, it doesn’t look great that the WWE title match would be billed as the #3 match on the show. That said, WWE is firmly behind Punk as champion and the Rock vs. Cena is already guaranteed to be a huge draw without the belt on the line.

    Taker vs HHH again = boring as hell. Especially when we KNOW the scripted OUTCOME… HELLO!

  • Greg

    Taker might be old but his in ring work has always been excellent. However I do agree that the time is coming where he should bow out gracefully. Even though taker/HHH 2 isnt rele what we want to see honestly ask yourself who else there is on the roster who deserves the honor of wrestling the deadman at mania. The only other wrestlers on the roster who are worthy of getting in there with taker are Miz and Dolph and Vince wont do it cus vince loves his main guys. My gut says that if this isnt takers last mania next year will be and his final match will be with…… john cena. Even though god knows we dont wana see it, its going to happen. We can only pray the streak never dies but if i had to hazard a guess Cena may be the one to break it

    Taker vs HHH again. No thanks. I would rather see HHH vs HBK.

  • Kamala’s Foot

    I hate being removed from Kamala’s leg.

    We don’t want to see Taker/HHH 3! Two times is enough already! Give him a fresh opponent now!

    Also, the WWE Title does not need to be on the line in the Cena/Rock match. Why? Because The Rock isn’t a full-time wrestler so he automatically does not need it. It will make the title look even worthless if he wins.

  • John

    So niether of the 2 top matches for WM28 are for a world title. The world titles in WWE seem to get more and more meaningless every year. And out of those 4 men only 1 is a full time wrestler. I wonder how the rest of the roster that works year-round feels about that.

    Triple needs a to loose a little weigh he is getting bigger, in the belly

  • Legend Killer

    You say HHH & HBK failed twice at beating Taker. Does this mean they will finally acknowledge the match at WM 17 did actually happen?!

  • Prince

    HHH putting his career on the line is stupid. HBK being the ref is enough of a hook. Although, I do think Taker should just face someone else.

  • Ryan

    WWE were never going to make the rock vs cena for the title and everyone knows that it would pick the winner instantly as why would the rock hold the title for one night one last time it would be pointless! rock is like triple h and taker he aint intrested in the gold anymore! I would like to say that that i believe that statement to be false it was just a way to hype the match up even more if there was a potential factor of a title. it was just them stirring things up!

  • Snark Mark

    Daniels vs. Taker at WM for the World’s Heavyweight Championship.

  • StudDog

    Why all the hate on Taker? And why do you call everyone faggot? Sounds like you have some serious personal problems. Chill out dude.


  • Mike Oxafloppin

    Shawn Michaels screws Triple H. Sorry that I just spoiled it

  • Wait and see fag boys. Taker is getting his faggot ass screwed aint a damn thing you can do about it, you can come back on here after WM and join my kiss my ass club.

  • whocares

    Agreed. There really is no drama or mystery going in to this match. I don’t see any way that they could convince the crowd that HHH might win. I think the Undertaker has been a great wrestler for the past 33 years, but it’s well past time for him to hang it up. How much longer can he be a draw if he only works one match a year?
    And isn’t HHH still the COO? Why is he just acting like a regular superstar again?
    And what happened to the anonymous Raw GM?

  • Dave

    Look. Taker ain’t losing the streak to anybody now. Let alone a guy who is himself, winding down his in ring career. The last guy to be in with even an outside shout of being put over The Undertaker at Mania was Randy Orton. But he didn’t want to be the one to break it.
    Just hope he goes 20-0 then retires and leaves it at that, rather than doing a Hogan or a Flair and carrying on far too long.
