WWE: 11 things nobody wants to admit about The Undertaker

The Undertaker is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time (probably the greatest). But what are some of the things about his career that fans don’t discuss often enough?

5. The WrestleMania match against John Cena was everything it needed to be

One thing WWE did get right during the post-Streak years, however, was The Undertaker’s 2018 return match against John Cena. Yes, I mean the 2-minute squash between the two legends in which The Deadman demolished Cena without breaking a sweat.

This was a dream match that the WWE Universe had been wanting to see for years on the Grandest Stage of Them All, but it was also ‘Taker’s return to action after that infamous showdown with Roman Reigns the year before raised questions about his in-ring future. So, as disappointing as it was that we never got to see the lengthy classic between the two icons from two different generations, the squash was a necessary evil to show us that The Undertaker still had it. And from that performance, he did.

The Phenom was able to turn back the clock and deliver all of his greatest hits within a two-minute time-frame, calling back to the early ’90s when he used to demolish superstars in minutes on a weekly basis. He was also in incredible shape, which was just the icing on the cake. For one night only, The Deadman was back and better than ever.

Did WWE miss an opportunity by not having a classic WrestleMania match between The Undertaker and John Cena when they were in their prime? Probably, but this would not have been that classic. Those days were gone, and this was exactly what it needed to be.
