Who should the Undertaker face at Wrestlemania XXX?

See also

The Royal Rumble is this Sunday and thus begins the road to Wrestlemania XXX. There is a lot of talk out there now about who's going to win the Rumble and who will that person face for the WWE World Heavyweight title in the main event of WM. Will Hulk Hogan make an appearance? For some fans' money, the most pressing question is, who will face the Undertaker?

The Deadman's annual engagement at the crown jewel event in sports entertainment is always a must-watch. Storylines don't matter as much as the performances in this one. Every year, the Phenom proves doubters wrong as he continues to deliver main event-caliber matches. He is undefeated at Wrestlemania ever since defeating Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka at WM VII in 1991. Who will threaten to make the Undertaker 21-1? Check out the list and even make your own prediction in the comments section.

Wrestlemania XXX will be broadcast live on the new subscription WWE network on Apr 6 from the Superdome in New Orleans.

Daniel Bryan

With 'Taker's advanced age and physical condition, one might be worried that someone like Daniel Bryan would make him look foolish. However, the legend's match with CM Punk at last Wrestlemania was incredibly well-worked because of the preparation put in by both athletes. Bryan is equally meticulous and could do something spectacular with the Deadman. Too bad his feud with Bray Wyatt could spill all the way into 'Mania. The only way this happens is if "the devil" that Wyatt says made him "do it" turns out to be the Undertaker himself.

Big E Langston

Few guys in WWE are gaining more momentum than Langston. He's a legitimate physical threat to the Undertaker but it would take a quick and massive heel turn for that showdown to make sense.

Batista

Batista

A violent, brutal performer, Batista would be a good fit but has been rumored to win the Royal Rumble. That would put him in the WM main event. It would be a nice feather in his cap to maybe be the one to break the streak, but it probably won't happen.

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar

His situation is almost identical to that of Batista's. However, this rumor has had a lot of traction. The Undertaker needs a well-choreographed match to maximize what he has left in the tank. A guy with a part-time contract and a reputation as being unprofessional doesn't exactly seem to be an ideal opponent.

Dean Ambrose

Dean Ambrose

The last time the Undertaker was in action, it was against Dean Ambrose. His Shield co-horts proceeded to take the Phenom out. For bad blood reasons, this is a good choice. It does seem, though, that the Intercontinental and U.S. titles are headed toward unification and that Ambrose, and probably Langston, will be needed for that dance.

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins

Same as with Dean Ambrose, Rollins represents a beef for the Deadman. For sheer in-ring expertise, Rollins rivals Punk and Bryan. The world saw as much in his recent singles match with John Cena, taking the "legend" to the limit. It would be an amazing match but one we'll likely never see.

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns

For storyline and momentum purposes, Roman Reigns makes the most sense. It was his power bomb that took 'Taker out. The company has been building him ever since, taking out Punk in a singles bout just weeks ago. This could be the moment that breaks the Shield as they would likely fight over who would get to face the Undertaker with Reigns getting the best of them. He is a legit threat to end the streak.

That is, unless this happens...

Sting

Sting

This is the big hope for WWE and fans alike. These two legends meet and Sting sets foot in a WWE ring for the first time. "The Icon" is near the end of his TNA contract so this could happen, pending a deal. A fantasy match on par with Hogan vs. The Rock.
