Well, it appears that once again, the Deadman is set to ward off retirement for another year and have one 'last' match at WrestleMania. And hey, this time, it's actually against someone who people want to challenge him. After a couple years of cobbled-together gimmick matches with the boss' son and the forced coronation of THE BIG DOG, we once again have a WrestleMania match that people have been asking for for years. Finally, John Cena, the man who has run WWE for close to 15 years, is going to stand toe to toe with 'Taker at the Show of Shows. Well, probably.
Make no mistake, John Cena absolutely deserves to face 'Taker at WrestleMania after all he's done for the company. He's certainly more deserving than many other of Mean Mark's opponents over the years. So many great workers and dynamic characters have been passed over in favor of size and spectacle. These dream matches at WrestleMania will never come to fruition, and I don't know about you, but I'm miffed about that.
Let's pay tribute to them men who deserved to be 'Taker's dance partner.
Yes, yes, I know, Jake Roberts has... that name. Perhaps that's why, despite his resistance, wrestling took over his once-innocent life, and now, he writes for WhatCulture. When not doing that, he's an aspiring actor and broadcaster based in the mountains of North Carolina, and has a bachelors degree in Electronic Media & Broadcasting.
