3 ideal opponents for The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 35
- Who should stand toe-to-toe with the Deadman next year?
Over the years, the Undertaker has constructed an unparalleled legacy for himself at Wrestlemania. He was unbeaten at Wrestlemania until 2014 when the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, finally conquered the winning streak of Undertaker at WM30.
The Undertaker has faced many elite performers like Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, CM Punk, Randy Orton, Batista, and Edge at the Showcase of the Immortals and managed to defeat all of them.
His classic Mania encounter with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25 is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestling matches of all time. The Phenom consistently delivered exemplary performances at Wrestlemania and became synonymous with the event over the course of his illustrious career.
But in the last few years, the quality of his encounters has declined considerably as age seems to have caught up with him. Recurring medical issues have also played their part in slowing him down, as his matches at Wrestlemania 31, 32, and 33 were average at best.
In what was a much-anticipated Wrestlemania dream match of this era, The Deadman finally faced John Cena at Wrestlemania 34 in an impromptu matchup. To the dismay of the WWE universe, the contest lasted just 2 minutes as Undertaker squashed John Cena in a one-sided encounter.
Ever since the April, rumors have been going around that Undertaker might face John Cena again at Wrestlemania 35 in career vs career match. Two of the biggest WWE superstars of all time facing in a high stake match at Wrestlemania is always a great selling point but an argument can be made that the two established stars can instead help upcoming future stars by sharing the ring with them.
In this slideshow, we are going to take a look at 3 superstars other than John Cena who may be better opponents for the Undertaker to face at Wrestlemania 35.
Honorable mentions - Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman
#3 Finn Balor
Finn Balor is a supremely gifted performer in the ring but has been misused by the WWE creative team since his comeback last year. In the recent times, he has been involved in dreadful feuds with Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley, which have actually done nothing for any of the superstars involved.
He had an impressive showing in the Royal Rumble match this year and also had some wonderful matches with the likes of Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre.
More than anyone, it is him who needs to go against the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 35 in order to resurrect his WWE career and once again establish himself as a credible main eventer. His demon character will mesh perfectly with the feud.
