After hinting that he wanted to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania, Bray Wyatt made his intentions perfectly clear on Sunday at WWE Fastlane. He channeled The Undertaker's druids and rode down to ringside inside of a casket before openly challenging The Deadman.

The Undertaker's music originally hit, and, with the sight of the druids, many thought this was the legendary superstar's return:

Instead, Wyatt popped out of the casket and spoke of his desire to face off with the seven-time world champion. He closed by saying he'll "claim the soul of The Undertaker," per WWE:

Sunday's spectacle has been weeks in the making. On Raw and SmackDown, Wyatt delivered mysterious promos targeted at an unknown superstar.

Many speculated that The Undertaker was whom Wyatt was talking about, and those suspicions proved correct at Fastlane.

WWE isn't leaving a ton of time for Wyatt and The Undertaker to build a compelling angle, but 'Taker didn't need a lot of buildup to make his matchup with Brock Lesnar something fans wanted to see.

Plus, many will wonder if The Undertaker can rebound after suffering his first WrestleMania loss ever at last year's event.
