Up until this past weekend, the belief was that Undertaker would be taking on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32. However, WWE surprised everyone when they announced that the rubber match between Undertaker and Lesnar would be taking place in October, at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
Most people are now assuming that Brock Lesnar will end up wrestling either The Rock or "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania 32.
So, who will Undertaker end up facing on WWE's grandest stage next spring?
It's possible that WWE was planning on having Undertaker wrestle Sting at WrestleMania before Sting was injured in his WWE Championship match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions. But now, even though Sting has said that he's willing to wrestle again under the right circumstances, it's unlikely that we'll see the long awaited dream match take place in Dallas next year.
Now that it's clear that neither Lesnar or Sting will be wrestling Undertaker at WrestleMania 32, What Culture is reporting that John Cena will be the man to take on "The Phenom" at the event.
John Cena has wrestled Undertaker many times in the past, but the two future WWE Hall of Famers have never faced each other at a WrestleMania. The match has been discussed in the past, and it was even rumored to be taking place at this past year's WrestleMania 31 before it was clear that Bray Wyatt would be "The Deadman's" opponent.
When you eliminate the possibility of Sting or Brock Lesnar being Undertaker's opponent at WrestleMania 32, and consider the fact that Seth Rollins will likely be taking on Triple H at the event, John Cena is really the only guy left who could wrestle "The Phenom."
There's a chance that Roman Reigns will end up being Undertaker's opponent if WWE ends up turning Reigns heel in the next couple of months. But, if they don't, it's unlikely that they would put Reigns in another situation where he'll get booed out of the stadium.
WWE fans and pundits have predicted that WrestleMania 32 will feature Undertaker's retirement match. Usually, when a guy is going to retire, he'll lose his final match, and Undertaker, being the wrestling traditionalist that he is, may want to lose his final match, and if John Cena is the man to end Undertaker's career, WWE fans may end up having a lot more disdain for Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect than they already do.
