Dave Meltzer and a host of other Micky Mouse wrestling sites reported that Cena vs Undertaker had been discussed and pencilled in for SummerSlam. This report is absolutely false and never had any truth to it from day one.
After citing Meltzer’s story, worthless sites like NODQ and many others, became even more certain that Cena was facing Taker at SummerSlam, when Cena trolled them with the Instagram post, below:
The fact is, this is a CLASSIC Cena troll job. Cena is fully engaged with his filing commitments for The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle. The is film due to be released next Spring, so Cema will be needed to re-edit the final scenes of the movie. In addition to that, Cena also has various commitments centring around the promotion of the Bumblebee Movie, which is set to be released this Christmas.
With the WWE clearly aware of Cena’s hectic schedule, it’s crystal clear that due to Cena was never even considered for a match against The Undertaker at SummerSlam, due to his obvious unavailability. In contrast to Cena, The Undertaker DID make himself available for SummerSlam several months ago, but offered the company a select list of wrestlers he’d be willing to work with. According to our sources, it was a very short shortlist, with AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan and long-time friend, Drew McIntyre, the only men on the list. The current plan is for The Undertaker to miss SummerSlam, but feature on shows in Australia and Saudi Arabia, and at WrestleMania 35.
