Why John Cena and Kevin Owens could still face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32

Despite having his streak emphatically broken by Brock Lesnar almost two years ago, the appearance of The Undertaker at Wrestlemania will always be a hugely popular talking point.

With this year's extravaganza less than two months away, there are several rumours going around with regard to who will take on The Dead Man on The Grandest Stage Of Them All.

This year more than most, is more poignant for The Undertaker in particular as not only is it being staged at the AT&T Stadium in his home state of Texas, but many are also calling this the setting for his final WWE match.

The belief that this is the final time the WWE Universe will see the 50-year-old wrestler for the company. However, this has never been fully confirmed either by WWE or the man himself.

At present, some of the biggest names in the company and therefore possibly the most plausible opponents for The Undertaker, have already been ruled out as candidates to face him on April 3.

John Cena

One of these aforementioned WWE superstars is the leading name at the company; John Cena, who it has been rumoured could well make a return to WWE in the not-too-distant future.

As Forbes reported, Cena shared a video just last week of him back in the gym as he is recovering from shoulder surgery, with his work out proving he is clearly enjoying a quicker than expected recovery.

Whilst Cena, along with WWE will be in no rush to force the 38-year-old back into regular programming so as not to encourage any further injury.

If he were to make a full and healthy recovery ahead of this year's WrestleMania however, the company, as well as the WWE Universe, would surely love to see him face The Undertaker.

Seeing these two fan favourites and icons of WWE collide on The Grandest Stage Of Them All would doubtlessly make for memorable viewing.

The likelihood of John Cena making WrestleMania 32 however, all depends on how his shoulder injury is healing and unfortunately at present, it seems as though the face of the company may well not be fit enough to make the cut.

Kevin Owens

Perhaps a more plausible option for WWE to choose as The Undertaker's opponent is current mid-carder, Kevin Owens.

Despite falling into the vast section of mid-card talent more recently, Owens has made a huge impact on the WWE Universe since making his main roster debut. 

In addition, as What Culture revealed, Owens pitched seriously hard to explain why he was the man to face The Undertaker at WWE's biggest event of the year. 

Putting someone who is seen as a fresh, younger talent against someone as experienced and well-known as The Undertaker, would be the ideal way for WWE to clearly produce a battle of the past and the present.

It is no secret that Triple H is a big Kevin Owens fan, and despite those who feel he is not yet at the level of The Dead Man, he would surely put on an impressive display which would change the opinion of such critics.

Despite WWE officials rumoured to have turned down the possibility of an Owens vs Undertaker match for WrestleMania 32 entirely, this could well provide the ideal swerve for Owens to be revealed as a last-minute challenger for The Dead Man in April.

Ultimately, no opponent would be a disappointment for The Undertaker, as the legend himself is able to put on a better match than most of the WWE roster at present, even when it is perhaps considered to be one of his worst.
