Wrestlemania was an event that was aimed at the diehard WWE fans. It consisted of dream matches that would never happen otherwise. Wrestlemania is painted as the dream of every fighter, but not sure about it now. The mentality of Wrestlemania has changed massively. Now the event is organised to appeal to the masses, to gain as much audience as possible. They don’t show any brutal matches, which were the heart of the event.
Change of plans
According to the reports, John Cena was supposed to end the career of Undertaker. Cena was set to fight with the Undertaker in the Wrestler 33. It would have been a dream match and delight of every wrestling fan. But supposedly, McMahon came up with the idea of John Cena proposing to his girlfriend Nikki Bella at the grandest stage of all. John Cena initially declined the offer and wanted to fight the dream match with the Undertaker. Then McMahon insisted him a lot and he had to give in to the idea because of which he was given a short title run, as a reward. John Cena was not originally slated to win the title. The Royal Rumble match that was originally booked was AJ Styles vs. The Undertaker, with Undertaker winning the title.
The Undertaker then would have had to give up his title at the elimination chamber to AJ Styles after getting eliminated by John Cena. Randy Orton was fixed from beforehand to win the Royal Rumble, this was not changed. However Randy winning the Rumble required him to turn his back on the Wyatt family, which he eventually did. Then, AJ Styles was supposed to defend his title against the Viper.
The WWE also removed the plans to have Shinsuke Nakamura as a surprise challenge for the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz.
What actually happened
John Cena and Nikki Bella faced The Miz and Maryse, in the mixed double tag team match, at the Wrestlemania 33. After winning the match, Cena proposed Nikki Bella in front of the huge crowd. So, this caused the Undertaker to retire through the hands of Roman Reigns who came in as a replacement for John Cena, which was certainly a blessing for him. John Cena and Nikki Bella are set to marry somewhere around next year, which would be telecasted on the second season of Total Bellas.
John Cena vs. The Undertaker, a dream match
Wrestlemania 33 attracted a huge audience and was in the talks even after it was over because of John Cena’s proposal. It was a good idea to set up the proposal, but was tad unfair to the avid WWE fans. The legacy of the Undertaker is huge and didn’t deserve to end it, losing to a wrestler who is beginning to define himself. John Cena has legacy of his own. So, it only would have justified, if the Undertaker would lost John Cena and ended his glorious career. It would also, have been another feather to the marvellous career of John Cena. But the creative team though otherwise and to their credit the event was successful. Although, it will always be a wish of a true fan to see both the legends fight against each other, which would never be completed now. We wish the Undertaker a prosperous and happy life and wish him luck in his future endeavours.
