John Cena has been calling out The Undertaker, urging “The Deadman” to return and face him at WrestleMania lately. Cena has no match at WrestleMania at the moment, which led several fans to assume that The Undertaker would finally appear on last night’s final Raw before WrestleMania, but shockingly, The Undertaker never appeared before the live crowd. According to Cageside Seats, WWE has purposefully decided to hold off on announcing the match because the WrestleMania card is stacked and they do not feel the need to promote it. The company believes that the uncertainty of the match happening will help sell it. The match is definitely still expected to take place this Sunday night.
WWE made a decision last year to cut pyrotechnics from all of their shows completely. The belief was that the choice was made due to some cutbacks on the budget. As a result, some fans have even questioned if this year’s WrestleMania event will feature any pyro. Those fans can now take comfort in the fact that WWE is indeed planning on bringing back pyro for the show this Sunday night. A video was just recently uploaded on social media showing a small demonstration of the pyro being tested for WrestleMania 34 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It looks like pyro will indeed be back for at least one night during WrestleMania 34 this weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In order for a city to receive WrestleMania these days, that city will have to be the highest bidding city. New Orleans, Louisiana and East Rutherford, New Jersey have wanted to bring WrestleMania back for years now, and both of those cities will be next to host the event. One city that has been interested in hosting WrestleMania for years now is Minneapolis in Minnesota. While the event will not be coming to Minnesota this year or next year, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has reported that WWE officials will visit a Minnesota Vikings game this fall, and it is expected that talks of possibly bringing WrestleMania to the city of Minneapolis in 2020 or 2021 will resume once again.
