Cena's winning regardless.
I agree, Wrestlemania would seem totally out of place without Taker. However, if he doesn't show, that's alright. He's done more than enough for all of his fans throughout the years. Although, if I must say I am kind of banking on him returning next week. As I know for a fact, I will not watch Wrestlemania if he is not on the card. As for the Triple Threat, that match would be quite boring to me to be honest. We've already dealt enough with the Cena Vs Punk three times, and Rock Vs Cena (maybe two at WM) and Punk Vs Rock Two times, I'm sorry but we already have enough repetitiveness going on. At least Punk Vs Taker sounds more fresh. As for those who claim "They feuded before" Well, that was a couple of years ago. Punk is a much more high caliber wrestler now than he was then. He get more pops and reactions now too. I really do hope Taker returns next week, I really do.
As for all of those articles talking about him retiring at 30, I call bull on that. I mean seriously, every time it gets Wrestlemania Season people keep talking about his last match being either the match he's planning on making it to or the one after. It always happens and you know what also always happens?
The Undertaker still ends up doing another Wrestlemania and proving them wrong. People say that Cena is McMahon's cashcow, yeah that maybe so but when it comes to Wrestlemania, Taker draws way more than anyone. You know for a fact that McMahon is going to try to keep using Taker as much as he can each year. As for his health, to be honest....no one knows how bad Taker's health is. All of the articles on dirtsheets or any other news site really doesn't mean crap. They are all rumors, they are not known facts unless Taker says so himself. Oh great, so he hasn't returned yet...that automatically means he's out for Wrestlemania? I think not, remember this is The Undertaker the known Leader of The Locker Room for most of his time that he was with WWE, he will return under his own terms when he wants and how he wants. Why do you think he had a meeting with McMahon last week in Nashville? Well, I to be honest don't know the answer to that but I will however state my opinion. If you look at both personalities, I believe McMahon wanted to talk over a good return date of Taker's liking.
To be honest though, the articles about how his health is bad and how he may not return and the him "retiring" thing that they've been doing for a couple years now, it doesn't really bother me at all and it's actually quite old because each year they get proved wrong. lol. Anyways, as to the match between John Cena Vs CM Punk....My instinct tells me The Deadman may make his presence felt in his home state. As for the ones who said it'd be a Triple Threat Match, I do see where you're coming from but to me....Meh.
