— Digging around a bit to find more information on this report, there is another unconfirmed rumor we heard that WWE had hopes for a Cena vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania – as has been rumored for months – but that Taker possibly nixed the match, forcing WWE to change their direction for Cena as of yesterday’s Raw. Please note, this is only a rumor as we have not been able to substantiate with any legitimate sources.
— The identity of Cena’s opponent for the PPV will obviously become clearer over the next few weeks so stay tuned.
