After weeks of badgering The Undertaker to face him at WrestleMania, John Cena was reportedly livid today after it was revealed that the Undertaker has accepted a WrestleMania challenge from Heath Slater.
“Oh for the love of… seriously?!” Cena was heard exclaiming after WWE officially announced this morning that the Phenom will do battle at the Superdome against the former leader of 3MB.
Cena then angrily tore apart a “Never Give Up” towel and hollered “I give up!”
Wrestling fans and pundits alike were surprised by today’s announcement, as it puts Slater in an unlikely main-event position, and puts Cena in Row W, seat 33 in the upper deck of the Superdome (the best seat available on short notice).
Slater issued his challenge to the Deadman yesterday via Twitter — insisting that a WrestleMania payday would be very welcome because he “got kids” — and the Undertaker surprisingly responded with a tweet of his own: “Sure, let’s do this. #RedheadsCollide #WM34 #RestInPeace.”
The news adds credibility to the long-standing rumour that Slater will portray The Undertaker character after Mark Calaway finally retires.
