this what Meltzer said on Observer Newsletter:
Meltzer has said "The Undertaker will retire at this Wrestlemania or that Wrestlemania" since 2003. My God, that dude really dislikes Taker, doesn't he?
I just read it and I say this article is true and false. The true part being Taker will retire in 2014, the false part being Taker missing WM 29. Taker will be back for Wrestlemania 29. Its just the WWE finding a way to yank the internet's chain. WWE has been really good at keeping their hand quiet. No one knew Jericho was coming back at the Rumble. No one knew, or cared, about Jack Swagger coming back on Smackdown a couple weeks ago. No one knew Mark Henry was coming back on last week's Raw. No one knows when Christian is coming back. Bringing the Taker in prior to the Chamber makes no sense. His return would overshadow everything WWE has planned for the show. Taker coming back needs to be on the main stage of a Raw or at the close of the Chamber. Dont let them screw with you
If we are guaranteed to get cena/taker next year, I guess I'll be ok with taker missing WM
It will be Rock/Cena 3 next year.
I don't see the big deal if he misses this year and he gets his final retirement match next year agaisnt Brock or Cena. If the guy is messed up and wants to take the year recovering for work next year for his farewell match, than there is nothing wrong with that.
No, it's not okay for Taker to miss out WM 29 cause then he'll lose the chance of tying Bret's 13 WM matches in a row.
There have been reports about Undertaker's health and retirement since 1999. I believe only Taker and those close to him really know his condition. Only course we can see that he is war torn over from well over 20 years of bumps & injures, and if he decides to retire at WrestleMania 30 next year it would make that event even more of a legendary showcase.
I still think he's wrestling in Jersey this year but we shall find out by Monday or possibly Sunday.
Monday, more like.
Oh for gods sake.
I just realized something. If Undertaker misses WM this year and has 1 more final match at WM30, I'd bet every dollar, EVERY dollar I own it's against WWE Champion Cena, and because of that scenario, Cena goes undefeated in 2013.
So Taker either ends Cena's streak and retires WWE Champion, or Cena ends the streak.
I already have thought since early January Cena may go undefeated in 2013. That scenario would just hammer it home for me, as something that'd definitely happen.
I would bet top dollar on this.
No, it will be Rock/Cena 3 next year.

5. 24 - vs. Edge

8. 21 - vs. Orton
9. 23 - vs. Batista
10. 13 - vs. Sid
11. 27 - vs. HHH
12. 8 - vs. Roberts
13. 12 - vs. Diesel
14. 22 - vs. Henry
15. 7 - vs. Snuka
16. 20 - vs. Kane
17. 15 - vs. Boss Man
18. 19 - vs. Show & A-Train
19. 11 - vs. Bundy
20. 9 - vs. Gonzalez
Some are these are due strictly to match quality, some mostly due to buildup and others ranked only because all the other matches below them are just shittier.
I think Boss Man should be no. 19. That match was booked by Vince in hope of Taker carrying Boss Man to a legendary match and elevated him into main even status over a Taker/Mankind HIAC rematch. We never see Taker/Mankind at WM thanks to that.
And I think Batista should be above Orton & Flair.

Not really. If WWE wants to redo Austin/Rock, than Rock will win again at WM 29 to make it Rock/Cena 3 at WM 30.
