There is reportedly disappointment in WWE regarding a recent decline in WWE Network subscriptions, and Vince McMahon loves to pull off something big to make up for a disappointing subscriber count or a drop in TV ratings. That may very well happen at Survivor Series.
With a number of major stars currently sitting on the sidelines chomping at the bit to get back in the game, Survivor Series provides the ideal platform for WWE to make a huge splash with a memorable and shocking return for a marquee superstar or two.
The Undertaker, who is making a return to Smackdown Live in it’s 900th episode landmark on Tuesday, is rumored to face John Cena for The Undertaker’s retirement match in next year’s Wrestlemania 33 PPV. Speculations also suggest that if The Undertaker will be unfit for Wrestlemania 33, Cena will face a different opponent, and carry on to win his 16th WWE title belt.
For many, an Undertaker-Cena match up at Wrestlemania 33 would be interesting since Cena has been the face of the WWE franchise for quite a while, while The Undertaker is a living legend who has won 23 of his 24 matches at Wrestlemania. Furthermore, The Undertaker and Cena have never faced each other in a Wrestlemania PPV event.
