Jim Ross believes that, if booked correctly, the WWE could make huge business out of a match between John Cena and The Undertaker.
The WWE Hall of Famer was answering questions in a recent Q&A on his website when he was asked about the company possibly booking a match between Cena and The Deadman.
The person who posed the question believed the clash shouldn't be booked because it has already happened several times before. They also believed it shouldn't happen because the WWE already have an issue with Cena being booed by a section of fans, and they want him to be the top baby face.

They believed it would be ridiculous booking to put him in against a man that is virtually guaranteed to get the fans backing. The only way they could see it happen is if Cena turned heel.
Ross replied to this person's argument and said: "I disagree with your opinion but I respect your right to express it. This match, if built properly, would be huge biz for WWE. Cena is going to be booed by some no matter what so I'd simply go with the trend."
This would be a fantastic match if it was booked by the WWE. However, like many others, I feel this match would have been a lot better if it was booked for WrestleMania while The Undertaker's undefeated streak was still intact.
Don't get me wrong. While I couldn't believe it at the time, I was happy with the way the WWE booked The Phenom's undefeated streak to end at WrestleMania. But, keeping it intact for a bout against Cena adds more value to the match.
Think about it. One wrestler with an undefeated streak, the other lives his life by the slogan 'Never Give Up'. Now put them in a match at WrestleMania and you have yourself a guaranteed hit.
If this match was to happen, I believe The Undertaker would win, as Cena can recover much more quickly from this kind of loss.
