Report: The Undertaker has been training for WrestleMania 34 for months

Undertaker Watch 2018 has taken yet another turn. With only few days to go until WrestleMania 34, the WWE, John Cena or The Undertaker have yet to clarify what is happening this Sunday in New Orleans.

Is The Undertaker even going to be at WrestleMania? Will he confront Cena at WrestleMania? Will the two men have an impromptu match or will they face-off and decide to wait until WrestleMania 35 to get physical?

With more questions than answers in the current one-sided feud between Cena and The Undertaker, a new report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required and recommended) may clear a few things up.

Per the latest WON

“Cena vs. Undertaker has been planned for WrestleMania for months, and Undertaker has been training for the match. Undertaker will obviously be in New Orleans to confront Cena.

The last word we got, which was on 4/3, is that from Vince McMahon’s standpoint, the belief is that the audience knows he’s going to show up and this is the “story” that brings him back to “kick Cena’s ass.”

”They are also of the belief announcing Taker in advance won’t compel anyone to purchase the network, as anyone inclined is getting the network for the show anyway. This is Vince McMahon’s story and he seems very happy with it. I think part of it is that Vince McMahon can say, `people are invested in the mere chance Undertaker will show up!”’

If that means a match, or just a confrontation to build to a match next year, is hard to say, past that it was always scheduled as a match dating back several months.”

So at 53 years of age and one year since he left his gear in the ring after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, The Undertaker has been getting back into fighting shape for the past few months.

In theory an Undertaker vs. John Cena is now a secret menu item at your favorite fast food joint or a hidden track buried at the end of your most beloved album. Something Taker related is happening at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and whatever happens The Deadman will likely be in good shape for it.

If he does make an appearance, what will The Undertaker do at WrestleMania 34?
