WrestleMania 34: The Undertaker makes a startling comeback to the ring and destroys John Cena in under five minutes
Fans were convinced of a no-show from the 53-year-old Undertaker, especially since John Cena spent the kickoff show watching WrestleMania 34 with the fans at ringside.
WrestleMania 34 was important to fans worldwide for one thing, and one thing only: the return of The Undertaker to the ring and his legendary, once-in-a-lifetime fight with 16-time world champion John Cena. And folks, the Dead Man did not disappoint.
The wrestling star came out of his retirement, which he had announced last year, to answer the calls of John Cena, where he promptly proved his mettle by defeating Cena, all in under five minutes of their fight at the historic New Orleans venue.
The whole fight looked as if it was straight out of a movie set, with The Undertaker's return in the air up until the last minute. Fans were convinced of a no-show from the 53-year-old wrestling legend, especially since Cena spent the kickoff show watching WrestleMania with the fans at ringside, just as he promised he would if The Undertaker didn’t show up.
When Cena's music hit the stadium, the whole crowd was extremely disappointed, including the WWE superstar himself. However, in a great display of theatrics, a spotlight on the ring showed The Undertaker’s gear from his match a year ago with Roman Reigns, which later disappeared after a stroke of lightning hit the ring's center.
The Undertaker’s signature bell toll finally announced his arrival, and the Deadman returned to the stage in New Orleans. And from there, he dominated inside the squared circle.
Looking all but rusty on his return, he took just under five minutes to finish Cena, nailing a huge chokeslam, followed by a tombstone pile driver and taking the victory, thus moving his WrestleMania record to 24-2 in the process.
So the next question which now haunts most WWE fans and followers worldwide is: what is the next move for the Undertaker? Guess we'll all have to wait and watch for this one too.
