Does John Cena have a death wish?
While he was one of the celebrities present for the Daytona 500 on Sunday, the WWE superstar certainly fed into rampant rumors about him facing the Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 by posting an old-school shot of Dead Man on his Instagram account.

This certainly seems like WWE’s way of teasing a Cena vs. Taker match on the Grandest Stage of Them All, possibly before 100,000-plus raucous fans at ATT Stadium — home of the Dallas Cowboys — in Arlington, Texas on April 3. It also seems to confirm rumors about the two fighting, which have been persistently growing since last fall.
Sunday night was WWE’s Fastlane pay-per-view, which didn’t seem to drop any hints about the Undertaker fighting anyone else, for that matter.
All this should pave the way for tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw officially setting up the Cena vs. Undertaker match for WrestleMania 32.
Why not? The match makes all the sense in the world. Think about it. On one hand, it’s the Undertaker — the Phenom — a pillar in WWE for the past 25 years who has simply seen and done it all. On the other hand, it’s Cena, the face of the company for the past decade strong, fighting anyone and everyone in his path and never turning down a challenge.
The two have never fought head-to-head at WrestleMania, making their collision course one that should definitely get plenty of eyes locked in on the April 3 extravaganza.
If the match between the superstars gets cemented on Raw during this road to WrestleMania, Cena better watch out.
An Instagram photo posted by Taker’s wife, Michelle McCool-Calaway, showed the Undertaker getting in what seemed to be great WrestleMania shape, getting primed and ready for the event in which he has ruled for over 20 years.
If WWE wants to make the match even that much more interesting, they can use it to (finally) make Cena a heel. Such an event may give Cena’s career just the boost it needs for him to continue making an impact in the storylines — not to mention, have more of the WWE Universe giving him a negative reaction rather than the wishy-washy, straight-down-the-middle response of half-boos, half-cheers he currently receives.
If the Undertaker does end up against Cena at WrestleMania 32, who do you want to have his hand raised at the final bell?
