It was reported earlier today at WWE legend The Undertaker will soon make his return to WWE television. If and when the “Deadman” makes his return, it would be the first time since Wrestlemania 31 that he has graced the WWE Universe with his presence.
His last appearance and match saw him face-off and defeat Bray Wyatt, putting his Wrestlemania record at 22-1. Now, his next adversary at Wrestlemania is being discussed and it could end up being the man responsible for the “1” in the loss column, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via WZROnline.
The report mentions the possibility of The Undertaker facing Brock Lesnar in a rematch at Wrestlemania 32. The idea behind the match would be for Undertaker to get his revenge on Lesnar for breaking his undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. However, a rematch between these two men would come with one big issue.
Lesnar is currently portrayed as a fan-favorite, therefore, the WWE would have to turn Lesnar into a heel. With his current popularity, fans might not take too kindly to the “Beast Incarnate” switching roles. But if the company decides to go in that direction, the seeds for a rematch have already been planted.
This past week on Monday Night RAW, Lesnar broke the ankle of Kane, who is Undertaker’s “WWE storyline” half-brother. Therefore, Undertaker might want to not only get revenge for his streak but to get retribution on behalf of his brother. Additionally, Lesnar’s manager, Paul Heyman, has mentioned how his client broke the streak ad nauseam since it happened.
But if Lesnar is not Undertaker’s next opponent, there are several other rumored candidates. The Inquisitr previously mentioned that a potential match between Kevin Owens and Undertaker is possible. Owens has taken WWE by storm since his debut a couple of months ago. Therefore, having one of the company’s newest and most popular antagonists fight the legendary Undertaker would make sense.
Yet, the report states that neither Owens or Lesnar are being considered to face Undertaker. For any fans that are wondering, Sting is not the rumored opponent either. Although both Sting and Undertaker are rumored to appear at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, it’s reportedly not to begin a program together.
Despite the uncertainty, WWE chairman Vince McMahon has reportedly decided on who Undertaker’s opponent is, but the identity of that superstar is not yet known. But with Wrestlemania set to take place from AT&T Stadium in Dallas and WWE looking draw 100,000 fans in the building, expect the identity of that opponent to be huge.,
