Top 5 Candidates To Face The Undertaker At WrestleMania 35
Despite having seemingly been on the cusp of retirement for a decade or so by this point in time, The Undertaker is still rising from the dead to compete in matches every now and again.
Here we are though, looking ahead at WrestleMania 35 and pondering whether this will really be it for the iconic Deadman. Then again, we’ve been saying that for pretty much the past fifteen WrestleMania shows.
Whether ‘Mania 35 is indeed ‘Taker’s final farewell, we’ll have to wait and see. Regardless, The Phenom is expected to compete at next year’s Showcase of the Immortals – which, of course, raises the question of just who he’ll be facing.
In his WrestleMania outings to date, Undertaker has battled huge names such as Jimmy Snuka, Jake Roberts, Diesel, Sid, Kane, Triple H, Ric Flair, Randy Orton, Mark Henry, Batista, Edge, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, and John Cena. Quite the impressive list, right? That’s a list of Hall of Fame talents if there ever was!
So with all of that in mind then, let’s take a look at the top five candidates to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 35 in what really could be ‘Taker's final stand.
We know, we know. Quite frankly, nobody needs to see yet another match between Kane and The Undertaker, let alone another WrestleMania match to add to the two that the pair have already had. But with that in mind, that’s not to say that another ‘Mania bout isn’t a strong possibility right now.
By the time that WrestleMania 35 comes around, The Undertaker will be 54 years of age, with Kane to turn 52 shortly after the Showcase of the Immortals. Both performers are legends of the business in every possible way, and they have been slowly but surely winding down their in-ring days over the past several years.
These storyline brothers and real-life good friends have seen their careers intertwined for over twenty years now, and seeing them having one last WrestleMania would be a fitting way for both stars to call time on their wrestling careers.
Sure, the match itself may not be a classic, and it likely wouldn’t live up to their battles at WrestleMania 14 and WrestleMania 20, but these icons of the industry have surely earned the right to go out on their own terms. And if that just so happens to mean one last WrestleMania match against each other before all is said and done, so be it.
