With The Deadman absent, Cena first asked if the WWE Universe still wanted to see him face The Phenom at WrestleMania — they do — before tearing into his would-be opponent for responding to his challenge with radio silence. Cena decreed that such a non-reply was a brazen act of disrespect to both him and the WWE Universe, who had given Undertaker everything they had over the course of his storied career.
The 16-time World Champion continued by claiming that The Undertaker had allowed himself to revert from the “godlike” status the WWE Universe had propelled him to back into a man … and a "cowardly" man at that. It got to the point that Cena (and the audience) demanded that Undertaker send him any kind of sign in response, whether it was a yes, a no, a veil of smoke or a flock of druids rolling a casket.
All of this wasn’t enough to provoke a response from Undertaker directly, but it was enough to summon Kane, who Cena assumed had arrived as an emissary to deliver Undertaker's reply. Instead, The Big Red Machine dropped the 16-time World Champion with a Chokeslam. The only question that remains is whether The Devil’s Favorite Demon was speaking for his brother or looking to challenge Cena himself on The Grandest Stage of Them All. With a match between the two sanctioned for next week, perhaps the answers are just seven days away.
