Major Update on WrestleMania 33 Plans, Who is Undertaker Facing Off Against?

According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, only three matches have been locked in for Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando, and those three are Big Show vs. Shaq, Triple H vs. Seth Rollins, and Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar.

Undertaker vs. John Cena has been discussed as well, and a match-up between the two was hinted at during this past week’s SmackDown, however, Vince McMahon has not made a final decision. While a match with Cena is being discussed a match-up with WWE United States Champion Roman Reigns is also being looked at. The Reigns match-up is being more heavily favored by WWE Officials, as they see Reigns as the future of the company and see a match with Cena not giving much of a payoff down the road.

If Cena is able to defeat AJ Styles for the WWE Title, or Cena is able to capture the Universal Title from Owens, either man could be looking at a championship headliner match against The Deadman in Orlando, as it is expected to be his last Wrestlemania. Taker has yet to be confirmed for the Royal Rumble match in his home-state of Texas in San Antonio, but he would be favored to win the Battle Royal given the two above scenarios.

Another favorite to win the Rumble is Braun Strowman. A win for Reigns over Owens at the Royal Rumble could lead to a possible Reigns vs. Strowman match at Mania, with Owens vs. Jericho taking place as well.

And last, but certainly not least, a multi-person match for the RAW Women’s Title is also being discussed.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more…….

    Cena vs Taker isn’t any more respectable. Reigns is basically Cena, and just because Cena has been around for a decade doesn’t make him any better than reigns. Still the same overpowered muscle guy who gets pushed to the moon despite fan response. Cena would actually be worse as he has more years under his belt, torturing the WWE universe

    Unfortunately Sting’s neck would fall out of place if he wrestled again, so count that as unlikely.

  • D2K

    Agreed. If Sting is willing to risk it, to quote Ken Watanabe….

    Who not do Roman v Cena and Undertaker challenging A.J for the title?

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Just book Taker vs Sting and be done with it. Everything else will fall into place on its own.

    Reigns vs. Taker is a horrible choice and would be a disasterous conclusion to Undertaker’s career. It’s as if they want people to hate Reigns even more. Just give him the Universal championship at Rumble since it’s going to happen eventually and have him drop it to Strowman. Cena vs. Taker is at least respectable, a shame we’ll probably never get Taker vs. Sting.
