While numerous names have been speculated (Braun Strowman, John Cena, Brock Lesnar) and one man calling “dibs” (Kevin Owens), it appears that The Undertaker’s opponent has been chosen and it is NOT any of these men. As a matter of fact, it isn’t anyone on the current roster. Some sources are tossing out the idea of Sting in a possible retirement match but his spinal stenosis diagnosis makes this match risky at best.
With this new information I have to revisit my original prediction for The Undertaker’s opponent from around the Royal Rumble. He’s not currently on the roster. He’s a big enough name for a special Undertaker match. They’ve never wrestled at WrestleMania. And he’s already going to be at the show.
It may be a long shot considering his film commitments for 2016 but I can’t think of anyone else who would fit this equation so perfectly.
(Of course there’s also another former big, bald, former World champion who has never faced The Undertaker. I wonder if he’ll be “next”.)
