Earlier this week, the Inquisitr reported on the Undertaker’s status for WrestleMania 31. He’s rumored to face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania if he is healthy enough to wrestle. Undertaker suffered a concussion at last year’s WrestleMania when the greatest streak in WWE history came to end at the hands of Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.
Since Undertaker lost his perfect streak, there was internal doubt at his WWE status. It was certain that Taker wouldn’t enter the WWE Hall of Fame this year, but his health will always be in question at his age. Sting’s outstanding shape is a near anomaly. The Deadman just isn’t as lucky as the Stinger.
According to RingsideNews.com, it looks like the WWE is moving forward with the Undertaker and Bray Wyatt, which may have begun last night on a live version of Smackdown.
“There’s a lot of speculation that Bray Wyatt was talking about The Undertaker during his promo on last night’s WWE SmackDown, seen above.
“Wyatt mentioned that he fears nothing, living or dead. He also said after what he does next, it will be hard for the WWE Universe to ever smile again.
“At last word, WWE officials were still not sure on The Undertaker’s status for WrestleMania 31 but with the Royal Rumble over, they likely got an answer and it appears they are moving forward with the feud.”
For any WWE fan, they grew up with the Undertaker in some capacity. He made his WWE debut in 1990 at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. From that moment on, the WWE’s greatest living performer at WrestleMania will live on in the minds of fans forever. If he cannot participate at WrestleMania this year, it will truly be a shame.
However, that doesn’t mean the “Showcase of the Immortals” will be anything but exciting. Since the reaction to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view was anything but what the WWE wanted, there are huge changes on the horizon for WrestleMania 31. First, it doesn’t look like Daniel Bryan will wrestle Sheamus anymore. Dolph Ziggler vs. Daniel Bryan is now being teased for WrestleMania 31.
Last night teased a “changing of the guard” in the WWE. Triple H came out on the live edition of Smackdown and announced something that gave the WWE goosebumps.

Apparently the WWE is listening to the WWE Universe, after all. Daniel Bryan’s quick elimination from the Royal Rumble opened up eyes in the WWE Creative department. On top of that, the Roman Reigns “hate” isn’t exclusive to Philadelphia. On Smackdown last night, they booed Reigns too, and he knew it. Monday Night Raw will change the landscape of WWE towards WrestleMania 31.
