WrestleMania XXX is about six months away, so now is usually the time speculation arises over who The Undertaker will face at The Showcase of the Immortals.

With next year’s show being the 30th anniversary of the event, it makes sense that the WWE would book a blockbuster match featuring arguably WrestleMania’s greatest performer, The Undertaker.

According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestlingInc.com), officials have basically decided that The Phenom will be taking on Brock Lesnar at next year’s Show of Shows.

The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar is now on the books for WrestleMania XXX, provided that ‘Taker feels healthy enough to work that kind of match. Lesnar was always going to work with either The Undertaker or The Rock.

We’ve heard a thousand rumors over the years that these two would clash at WrestleMania, but up until now, it’s obviously never happened.

Speculation arose once Brock re-signed to the WWE, but reports circulated, per Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestlingInc.com) that Undertaker’s body wasn’t in the sort of shape where he could have a strong match with the notoriously physical former UFC champion.

Still, rumors persisted, per F4WOnline (via WrestleZone.com), but more recently there was talk of Ryback facing The Deadman at ‘Mania XXX, with the story going that since CM Punk couldn’t get the job done last year, Paul Heyman would enlist the services of the much larger Ryback to finish off the streak.

Presumably, that same storyline will be used for Brock Lesnar.

What do you think? Should we see a clash of these two megastars at WrestleMania XXX, or would you like to see different matchups? Let us know in the comments section below.
