Unpopular Opinion: WWE Should Book The Rock vs The Undertaker For WrestleMania 35
WrestleMania is undoubtedly WWE’s biggest event of the year. It is the stage where legends are born, fables are written, and history is made.
These two men have been the biggest draws for the WWE for over 2 decades.
The Undertaker is undoubtedly the greatest Superstar to ever set foot in WrestleMania. In a stunning 26 appearances at the ‘Show Of Shows’, The Deadman has a whopping 24 victories, including an unprecedented run of 21 straight victories famously referred to as ‘The Streak’.
He has battled some of the biggest legends of the business at WrestleMania including the likes of Ric Flair, Randy Orton, Kane, Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Triple H and Brock Lesnar.
But then, The Undertaker has never faced The Rock...
The Rock is the ‘Most Electrifying Man’ in all of Sports Entertainment. He has this aura around him that sends fans into a frenzy.
The Rock has been one of the biggest draws for the WWE at WrestleMania in its chequered history. Even the mere rumours of The Rock being slated for a match at WrestleMania push up ticket sales.
He has battled the biggest names in the industry at WrestleMania including the likes of Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold and John Cena.
But then, The Rock too has never faced The Undertaker at ‘The Grandest Stage Of Them All’.
Now, it has been more than 15 years since The Rock and The Undertaker faced off against each other in the same ring, and during the course of these 2 decades, these two have taken different paths and gone on to become legends of the business.
Now, just imagine the sight of these two in the same ring for one final time at WrestleMania 35 this year.
The storyline that the WWE can weave around this match, the enormity of this bout, and the aura that these two men possess, can easily make this the greatest match in WrestleMania history.
It can beat the Hulk Hogan Vs Andre The Giant classic, the epic Rock Vs Stone Cold encounter, the iconic Streak Vs Career match between Undertaker and Shawn Michaels and the brutal Hell In A Cell encounter between The Undertaker and Triple H.
The Rock walking down the aisle at WrestleMania 35 with over 70000 fans chanting his name in unison, contrasted by the sound of the iconic gong that signals the arrival of The Deadman, the ethereal sight of The Undertaker walking down the ramp with his trademark black hat and his black coat with the fans on their feet and the sight of these two legends coming face to face at WrestleMania 35 can make the hair on the back of your neck stand up in excitement.
And, the in-ring action that these two icons can offer can make this match stay in our minds forever.
And finally, WrestleMania 35, in all probability, will be the last for The Undertaker, and who better than the ‘Great One’ to retire ‘The DeadMan’ and allow him to finally ‘Rest In Peace’?
The WWE should certainly book this classic and make our fantasies a reality.
