Can The Undertaker's undefeated WrestleMania winning streak extend to 19-0?
WHO WILL FACE THE UNDERTAKER AT WRESTLEMANIA?
Whether The Undertaker is medically cleared to compete by April is still to be determined but if and when he is, the question remains: who will The Undertaker face at WrestleMania 27?
Originally, the rumored plan was for Wade Barrett to battle the Phenom, given the Nexus assisted in the burial of The Undertaker at the Bragging Rights PPV. However, with CM Punk as the assumed new leader of Nexus, it is quite possible that Barrett and Punk will clash for control of Nexus at WrestleMania.
Another prediction, mainly thought of by myself, is that Triple H would be revealed as the “higher power” of Nexus, and therefore would be the logical reason Nexus buried The Undertaker; it could be Triple H’s payback on ‘Taker for retiring Shawn Michaels at last year’s WrestleMania.
A third prediction could also be John Cena if he does not win the Royal Rumble. The idea of John Cena vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 27 would be the biggest draw for this year’s event and would absolutely raise the overall buyrate of the event.
Brock Lesnar is a fourth and highly unlikely opponent, given that UFC President Dana White has stated Lesnar is still under contract with the UFC and is not allowed to wrestle at WrestleMania. However, White could be blowing smoke and it could be an elaborate plan by the minds of White and McMahon to pull of this major cross-brand “attraction” match.
Also, Kane could be another candidate for the Undertaker’s opponent at WrestleMania since Kane co-conspired in the attack of burying Undertaker alive several months ago. However, both men have already competed against one another on two separate occasions at WrestleMania and therefore it would not feel fresh, given their most recent feud lasted three months.
Whoever it is, one thing is for certain: The Undertaker improves to 19-0 at WrestleMania 27.
