Wade Barrett: He's No Match for Undertaker at Wrestlemania

Wade Barrett is just not ready yet.

Word has leaked out that WWE has plans for Barrett to work a big money match against the Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

With Undertaker being such a legendary figure, a match against him at the biggest wrestling extravaganza of the year is a highly-coveted spot.

Unfortunately, though, Barrett is not worthy yet.

Sure, he's worked big time pay-per-view matches against Randy Orton and John Cena, both of whom are viewed as top stars in the industry. However, that's a entire level below working against Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

That's a spot that's reserved now for legendary figures like Shawn Michaels or a young up-and-coming star who has so much momentum that management has no choice but to throw him in there against the Phenom.

Barrett does not fit either of those descriptions right now.

With Nexus no longer by his side, Barrett has dropped a level. He was unceremoniously dumped by the guys he helped to terrorize the Raw roster for an entire year.

He's no better than the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Alberto Del Rio and Ted DiBiase now.

A match between Undertaker and Wade Barrett is now just a squash match for Wrestlemania.
