The Undertaker currently has a record of 21-0 at Wrestlemania and it is safe to assume the aging wrestler is going to give it at least one more go at Wrestlemania 30. At this point, it’s uncertain who will be facing The Undertaker next April, but I have compiled the top 5 wrestlers who may do so. These 5 in no particular order range from most likely to face him to who might actually win.
Before facing CM Punk this year at Wrestlemania 29, The Undertaker took back-to-back wins against Shawn Michaels and Triple H. Therefore, facing CM Punk wouldn’t be so far fetched again and Punk has been heavily rumored to be in the top spot for the next Wrestlemania for quite some time. Possible scenarios for Punk include winning the rumble or facing Stone Cold in a dream match. Versing Stone Cold is a definite longshot, but if Punk wins the rumble, I can easily see him flip that to face The Undertaker rather than go for a title. Will CM Punk win? If the match is the main event, I think it’s a solid 50/50 chance.
As of right now, this is the most likely match to take place. The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar feuded back in late 2002 and Brock got the best of him throughout the program, including a Hell in a Cell match win. There have been known real-life heat between the two and it was also seen a few years ago that the two had an encounter at an UFC event (YouTube it). As for who will win, I cannot see Lesnar winning. He has jobbed to Cena and Triple H already, so it wouldn’t make much sense to build a guy you already have losing and don’t have on the road consistently.
This match is absolutely the biggest PPV seller if it takes place. No other match would be as meaningful and anticipated than this. The two haven’t had a meaningful encounter since 2003 and at this point of their careers, it would be hard to see either guy lose. WWE has built the company around Cena for years and seeing him lose a match clean is very, very rare. I think I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen Cena lose a match without an interference or disqualification. The idea has been thrown around to have the two have a submission match, would be even more interesting, because I don’t think I’ve ever seen either guy tap out. I believe that Cena would have the best chance to win out of anyone who faces him. And one thing is for certain — every single person watching the match would be at the edge of their seat for this one.
We never got a chance to see top-tier dream matches like Andre the Giant vs. The Big Show or Stone Cold vs. Goldberg, but The Undertaker vs. Sting is still possible. Both men can still go in the ring and it would be a shame if this very possible match never takes place. Rumors of Sting often surface and they’ve been floating around again, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for this match to happen. If this were to happen though, I don’t think Sting has any shot in winning the match. At the end of the day, the fans will win in just seeing these two titans finally clashing in the squared circle.
This match may be just as unlikely as facing Sting, but it would be a great match to see and an enjoyable experience to see these two in a match one last time. The two have had fantastic matches in the past and it would be special to see these two — whose careers are now in new heights and places — face off in the ring. Both their names alone would bring a lot of eyeballs to the match, especially folks who grew up during the WWE attitude era.
