The Undertaker To Overtake TV This Week – Looms Over Roman Reigns For WrestleMania 33? [Opinion]

The Undertaker is a WWE fan favorite for multiple generations, so who better than the Undertaker to hype up the crowds with WrestleMania 33 just around the corner? This week the Undertaker is expected to return to TV to set the wheels in motion for his match at WrestleMania 33.

While all signs point to Roman Reigns as the victim the Undertaker has his sights set on for WrestleMania, this is the WWE, so anything can happen. The INSC Magazine suggests that you can expect the lurking vision of the Undertaker making his way to the TV screen within the next several days. They also report that the whispers of a Fastlane return for the Undertaker this Sunday are getting louder.

The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania plans have gone from one possible match to another, with nothing actually in cement at this time. First, it was the rumors of John Cena getting into the ring with the Undertaker, then Stowman, but today it seems that Roman Reigns is the most probable opponent for the Undertaker at April’s WrestleMania. It looks as if Cena might be sharing some plans with the Miz at Wrestlemania, with Stowman’s place still up in the air.

This is a sticky situation for Reigns, considering WrestleMania may be the event to finally decide what direction he is going in. The WWE is full of those historic moments and turning Reigns heel by retiring the Undertaker would become one of those moments to go down in WWE history. Putting Wrestlemania 33 in the history books as the event where Reigns turns heel, would work well for finally settling Reigns into a niche, but Reigns is the WWE’s cliff hanger for all the big events.

The headlines about the possibility of Reigns turning heel starts months before a big event, which is the best kind of advertising for the WWE. This cliff-hanger draws in the fans, which is not only good advertising, but it’s free advertising as well. Turning Reigns heel would put a stop to this cliff-hanger, and maybe the WWE just doesn’t want to do that. How this will work out for Reigns is anybody’s guess right now, but with only weeks until WrestleMania 33, the answer won’t be too far away.

Sportskeeda reports that they were given a “projected card” for the WWE’s Wrestlemania 33 and that card does have the Undertaker with Roman Reigns as one of the projected WWE title matches.
