Sunday’s WrestleMania 31 was the biggest pay-per-view of the year for WWE, and the winners from the show now need marquee feuds heading into April’s Extreme Rules.
The key for the biggest stars in the company is to follow a victory with another high-profile feud that could lead to even bigger moments. From Undertaker vs. Sting to Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler, there are many dream feuds that could come to fruition.
Here are the top projected feuds for WrestleMania 31’s victors.

Undertaker vs. Sting
The match most wrestling fans want is the battle between Undertaker and Sting, but a loss for the former WCW world champion has thrown a wrench in the works.
Regardless, the bout between the two veterans must happen.
Many members of the WWE Universe are hoping for Undertaker and Sting to come face-to-face on Monday’s episode of Raw in order to set the stage for a year-long build to WrestleMania 32, and that would be the best use of both men.
Neither Sting nor Undertaker work a regular schedule.
If WWE wants to have Sting vs. Undertaker as one of the headlining matches at next year’s PPV spectacular, letting the two veterans set the challenge and then go away until it's time would be incredibly intriguing.
The Raw following WrestleMania has the potential to be just as unpredictable as the biggest PPV show of the year, and having these two bona fide legends stand toe-to-toe would make WrestleMania 31’s entire week one of the best in history.
Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler
The Intercontinental Championship ladder match was incredible. Every man in the battle put on an amazing performance, but it was Daniel Bryan who stole the show and managed to win the IC title.
The best part of the ladder match was the interaction between Bryan and Ziggler. The two men have a natural chemistry, and with the unwavering support of the WWE Universe for both wrestlers, an eventual turn by one of them would be incredible.
With the WWE possibly caring about instilling legitimacy into the secondary titles, a long-term storyline between Bryan and Ziggler—The Showoff would eventually have to go full-blown heel—would be one of the most interesting angles over the last 25 years.
Triple H vs. The Rock
One of the most exciting moments of Sunday’s show was the face-to-face confrontation between The Rock and Triple H, as well as UFC star Ronda Rousey almost breaking Stephanie McMahon’s arm.
There have been subtle teases for months and there is a long history between The Rock and Triple H, and WWE could be setting the groundwork for an eventual WrestleMania match between the two men down the line.
There would without a doubt be many better uses for The Rock if he were to make another in-ring return, but Triple H is arguably the top heel in WWE right now and a battle between the two men would be a marquee addition to the WrestleMania 32 card.
