Fans who are less than enthused for The Rock vs. John Cena and Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger at WrestleMania 29 were given another option on Monday night.

The Undertaker vs. CM Punk

Punk, who recently lost his WWE championship to The Rock at Royal Rumble, defeated Randy Orton, Big Show and Sheamus in a Fatal 4-Way match on Monday Night Raw to earn a battle against 'Taker at the biggest pay-per-view of the year. 

While this is a match that many have been expecting, it's a massive battle between two huge superstars that will draw loads of hype leading up to WrestleMania.

The allure of this match is obvious.

On the one side, you have The Undertaker. He doesn't make many appearances in the business anymore, but when he does, everyone pays attention.

Being one of the biggest pro wrestling superstars of all time tends to demand that type of respect.

At Wrestlemania, where the big man holds a record 20 wins and zero losses, the intrigue surrounding who he will face is sky-high every year. 

Which brings us to Punk, who many believe to be the best in the world.

Punk held the WWE championship for an astounding 434 days. After losing the title to The Rock in what was a fairly controversial decision to plenty of fans, he will get the special opportunity to share the spotlight with Undertaker at WrestleMania, something almost every wrestler hopes for.

It's still just over a month until WrestleMania 29, but the picture for wrestling's biggest night just became much clearer.
