Back when 2011 was just getting started, every wrestling forum was talking feverishly about who The Deadman would meet for his match at Wrestlemania 27. The possibilities were endless, and there was even a good chance that maybe we'd be in for one of the biggest surprises in wrestling history.
I don't think there's anything left to say about this video, and the insanity it caused throughout the wrestling, and UFC world.
And let's not forget about that whole embarrassing incident where everybody thought this was Sting for some reason, even though every single sign pointed directly to The Deadman.
By the time Wrestlemania rolled around, we got nothing more than a predictable Taker-HHH match. Sure, the match was pretty exciting, but it still had its fair share of disappointment, and it wasn't even as good as their first WM match 10 years prior.
Now, The Undertaker has one more match to get to 20-0 on the grandest stage of the them all, and the discussion is already heating up.
Unfortunately, there's almost no chance that we're in for any surprises on April 1, 2012, and you can forget about seeing Lesnar or Sting walk back into a WWE ring.
Lesnar is under contract with UFC, and unless Dana White is tired of making money and dominating the WWE, then I don't think he'll allow one of his golden boys to wrestle, just so Brock can make a few extra million and risk injury.
And Sting? The Icon has never stepped foot inside a company run by Vince McMahon, and I honestly don't see that changing at this point in his illustrious career. He will forever and always be the best wrestler to not be in the WWE.
After those two, there's really not many people out there that would truly surprise me.
Mick Foley maybe? But in all honestly, I think both of these men aren't in the best of physical shape to put on the kind of show that we would expect from such a historic match.
Chris Jericho? Again, it would be somewhat surprising, but its not like Y2J wasn't going to return at some point, anyway.
Shaq? ......Just Kidding
I think that this match will be the perfect opportunity to put over one of the younger guys and immediately catapult him into the elite. The Undertaker is no longer in the shape he was even five years ago, and he needs someone to carry a majority of this match. There's also always Kane, which I believe would be a perfect way for both men to end their legendary careers.
Either way, don't expect to be that surprised once we start rolling on the Road to Wrestlemania. This opponent will be nothing more than just another victim to add to The Undertakers' prestigious record.
