Wrestlemania XXIX: 5 Possible Opponents for the Undertaker

0 of 5

    The Undertaker is obviously in the tail end of his career.

    However, after his appearance in July's 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw, it's only fair to speculate that he will be going for 21-0 at WrestleMania XXIX this year. Now it's just a question of who he should face.

    Here are five wrestlers who could end up facing "The Phenom" in the Meadowlands next spring.

Sheamus

1 of 5

    Sheamus is probably the strongest babyface on the roster right now, as he's held the World Heavyweight Championship for 146 days at press time.

    However, if this match is to actually happen, Sheamus may have to turn heel for it to be more legitimate.

    At any event, win or lose (and he'll most likely lose), a match against the Undertaker will give Sheamus an even stronger boost when it comes to main event power.

CM Punk

2 of 5

    These two had an absolutely abysmal feud in late 2009, with Undertaker squashing Punk in a Hell in a Cell match for the World Heavyweight Championship.

    With Punk now a heel, this match definitely could be built up very well if they actually physically integrate the Undertaker into the Raw and Smackdown segments leading up to WrestleMania—something they did not do in the last two years.

Brock Lesnar

3 of 5

    It's only right that these two have a match, after their confrontation at UFC 121 two years ago.

    There really isn't any other big name for Lesnar to face at WrestleMania this year, but one thing is for certain—he will have a match. The WWE didn't sign him back this past spring just for him have two matches. Especially after beating Triple H at Summerslam, Lesnar would be the most convincing person on the WWE roster when it comes to possibly ending the streak.

    Who better for Lesnar to have a match with at WrestleMania than the Undertaker?

The Rock

4 of 5

    This match more than likely won't happen, but just imagine how great this match could be if it was built up the right way.

    The Rock had a five-star caliber match with John Cena last year, and could do the same with Undertaker this year, especially with him having a warm-up match of sorts already set up at the Royal Rumble.

    The Rock may end up being booked against someone else, however, but there still is a slim chance this match could happen.

John Cena

5 of 5

    This match absolutely needs to happen at some point.

    Both Cena and the Undertaker have faced just about everyone they could possibly face at WrestleMania. Everybody that is except for each other.

    While this match would have been much better utilized a few years ago, when Cena was getting put over everyone, this still would be a solid WrestleMania match.
