As we’ve all heard by now, WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt called out The Undertaker for a match at WrestleMania 31. While The Deadman has yet to respond to the call, it is expected that he will, in fact, do so. However, there is a bit of an update on how the entire situation might go down.
According to PWInsider, The Undertaker is set to miss every WWE RAW and WWE SmackDown leading up to WrestleMania. He’d then finally make his long awaited return at the show of shows itself. The concept is that WWE wants to give us the wonderment of trying to contemplate where he’s been, what he has been doing, what he looks like, etc.
Undertaker would return as a bigger surprise and fans would most likely get more out of it, at least that is how WWE wants it to work out. If he comes on a show to help with the rivalry promos, it would ruin this. So having Taker show up to answer the call allows for a deeper story arc. Bray Wyatt is an excellent promo artists, so his promos leading up to WrestleMania will surely be eventful.
This does sort of give away the result in some ways. By having the entire story leading up to WrestleMania to be one sided, that means a returning Phenom would exponentially be favored in a win. If we had to take Vegas odds, it would be a “sure thing.” Those with gambling problems would know that there is at least one match they can count on working out when it comes to Undertaker/Wyatt.
While most believe that Taker would need to put over Wyatt if he does return. While the idea makes sense in theory, it doesn’t in reality. Taker lost last year and having him return to lose again wouldn’t help WWE or Bray Wyatt. Wyatt would simply be putting The Deadman back in the grave he asked him to crawl out of to begin with. Undertaker would simply return for no reason if he lost to Wyatt. So we can pretty much confirm in our own minds that WWE would not have Taker lose yet again on the grandest stage of them all.
Where does Wyatt go from here? It is uncertain. Having a huge match at WrestleMania, even in a loss, allows him to come off as a star. Anyone who works with The Undertaker as a young talent is put over for the mere fact Undertaker even chose to work with them. So backstage, Wyatt will be liked. As far as his material after WrestleMania, we can possibly expect him to be thrown into a big storyline
