The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt Should Not Happen at WrestleMania 31


Will this “Dream Match” between Bray Wyatt and The Undertaker turn into a nightmare at WrestleMania?

Bray Wyatt has done promos on WWE programming for weeks now about doing something that we’ll never forget. I may be the only WWE fan that doesn’t want to see The Undertaker compete at this year’s WrestleMania against one of the hottest up and coming superstars on the main roster.

This match should not happen on so many levels. If The Undertaker loses for the second time in a row, wouldn’t that tarnish his legacy just a little bit? What could the Undertaker possibly gain from competing against The Eater Of Worlds? More importantly, what sense would it make for Bray Wyatt to lose for the consecutive straight year against another icon on the biggest stage of them all?

The only way this match would have some meaning would be to make it a “Retirement Match” and let’s face it, we all know who would lose in the end. I grew up watching “The Deadman” as a child to become the heartbeat of World Wrestling Entertainment during his era. The Undertaker will always be remembered in my eyes for his various specialty matches, including a Casket match, Body-bag match, Buried Alive match, and the forever legendary Hell in a Cell match. Seeing Taker become impervious to pain to the point of being sent to a New Orleans hospital by the hands of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX is a sight I never want to see again. The Undertaker’s feuds in the past were always about a mortal going to battle with an immortal.

Bray Wyatt is not mortal, or even a beast like Taker’s opponent last year in Lesnar. Wyatt is “The New Face Of Fear” this generation’s Undertaker, and indeed should have been the one who beat the one in 21-1.

Bray has come a long way since last year’s Mania match against John Cena. That match didn’t end the way I would have hoped, but the feud allowed Wyatt to show how great of a performer he truly is. He has a level of conviction and the delivery that is unmatched on the current roster and that’s a credit to him because he writes his own promos. Wyatt has also mastered the art of controlling the crowd, as his character often comes across as a cult leader.

At the peak of his feud with Cena, even the 15-time World Champion was forced to acknowledge Bray’s followers, and despite his current booking, Wyatt will be a force that can’t be held down in 2015.

As of right now, I’m not sure if Bray Wyatt will win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship this year, but all signs point to this match as a sure thing for this year’s WrestleMania. My only question would be what happens to Bray if he defeats The Phenom in his backyard on the biggest stage of the year? Does he then revisit his feuds with Daniel Bryan, John Cena, or Dean Ambrose? Does he take on new challenges like maybe Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, or even Sheamus? Maybe Bray decide to turn his attention towards the WWE Champion at that time, most likely Roman Reigns?

Whatever he decides, I’m sure he’ll overshadow any other superstar in the company because he has the whole wide world in his hands…run!
