#5 Undertaker retirement
WWE officially announced the return of Undertaker recently and it kicked off a string of rumours. The Phenom is expected to wrestle at WrestleMania and WWE is apparently planning to push this as his retirement match. As far as Undertaker’s opponent is concerned, Randy Orton is one name that is being discussed.
Orton turning heel and joining the Wyatt Family could be WWE’s idea of warming him up for Undertaker. And a lot of people also feel that Orton is a safe worker as far as Taker is concerned. But at the same time, the name of John Cena also has a strong presence when it comes to being Undertaker’s final WrestleMania opponent.
