The Undertaker’s WWE WrestleMania 30 Match Reportedly Set

The ongoing rumors about the real main-event of WWE WrestleMania 30 and future WrestleMania events continue. We can all stop guessing about who will try to end The Undertaker’s streak as a new report indicates that has now been set.

Dave Meltzer in the newest Wrestling Observer newsletter reports that the WWE finally have a plan on the books for The Undertaker. It isn’t Sting and thank goodness it isn’t Ryback. It’s also not John Cena, contrary to rumors early on about a planned match between the two. It’s the WrestleMania match Vince McMahon wanted a few years back and couldn’t sign.

[adinserter block=”1″]Brock Lesnar is penciled in as the next man up to try and end the streak. Meltzer reports that the match is a go as long as The Undertaker is up to working such a physical match. Taker has set the standard so high with his last several Mania matches that he just may not be able to pull it off at this stage in his career. There is also concern it would appear about putting Taker into such a physical match.

The news is somewhat expected as this match has been rumored about for quite some time. The match was booked in Vince McMahon’s a few years back when Brock was UFC champion. Brock and The Undertaker even shot an angle at ringside after Brock lost the title to Cain Velasquez. UFC president Dana White immediately squashed it since Brock was under contract to the UFC. Vince finally gets the match he wants.

But this immediately raises questions about the wrestlers left out in the cold here. Where does this leave the open spots?

Sting – There have been rumors of a Sting vs. Undertaker match for months. Sting himself has even commented on interviews how much he’d love to wrestle The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Does this indicate that the WWE doesn’t believe Sting will leave TNA? What if Sting does come over? Is there anything they can do with him to pay off the signing? Other than Sting vs. John Cena or The Rock I don’t see it.

The Rock – The Rock was penciled in as far as back as last year to wrestle Brock Lesnar at this year’s event. Rock got hurt last year at Mania and everything changed. I have to believe that either the WWE believe that The Rock isn’t coming back or that he doesn’t want to wrestle someone as physical as Brock. This is where a Sting vs. Rock match makes a lot of sense in my opinion. Fans will be so happy to see it that they will see past Sting’s limitations and get behind the hype.

John Cena – Cena was rumored to wrestle The Undertaker coming out of last year’s Mania. I always thought that keeping the title on Cena until Mania and doing a Streak vs. Streak match would be huge, huge money. That didn’t happen. I think Cena winds up in the Corporation storyline either wrestling Triple H or Randy Orton, probably Hunter at this point. A Sting match is certainly intriguing.

[adinserter block=”2″]Ryback – I never bought into the Undertaker vs. Ryback rumors two weeks ago. It just didn’t make sense. The betting line now is on a Goldberg vs. Ryback match which has potential to be both intriguing and a huge train wreck. The fans have been wanting it for months now. The WWE have finally started to play it up which leads me think It is coming.

So there you have it. There are still a lot of interesting scenarios that could play out here. As with most of these rumors they generally change week to week so while Taker vs. Lesnar is booked today, it is still a long way to New Orleans.

  1. …but if Sting were to lose the match..which will probably happen because W.W.E. woun't allow a T.N.A/W.C.W. star beat the Phenom, at least on the first go, the rematch would be the greatest hype of all time, and depending on the quality match that I believe will be put on by the two it would be. It would be EPIC.

  2. I will say. I WILL buy Wrestle Mania P.P.V. IF Undertaker wrestles Sting. If Undertaker goes against Brock Lesnar, Absolutely not. No way will I pay to see that crap.

  3. Sting vs. Undertaker would be epic. Yes, epic. They both have respect for the business. They both have pride in what they do. Neither of them need the money. They do it because they love it. That's what I want to see. In any competition, you see the difference between the people who want it and the people who do it for the money. Sting doesn't do many matches anymore, but neither does Undertaker. I see people commenting on the great matches Taker has been in at Wrestle Mania the last few years. I think he vs C. M. Punk was the best of those. As for Sting, he has been flying over the top rope outside the ring on people, etc. So, don't say he can't work the match. They would both be able to tell a story in the ring not complete script even though W.W.E. is a complete script anymore. I'd love to see it, and believe it or not would like to see it somehow end in a draw where both men look at each other in the end and realize neither can keep the other down. Although, Undertaker would not have been defeated…the streak would be over…or would it? A great scenario. Some would argue it's not over he wasn't defeated. Some would argue that it is over because he didn't win. leaving a talking point for Wrestle Mania for years to come.

  4. The world is begging to see The Undertaker vs. Sting at WrestleMania 30 because they both are last active wrestlers left from early 1990’s and never been in a ring face to face before.

    The Undertaker now is not in that age to fight with Brock Lesnar.

    The Undertaker vs. Sting at WrestleMania 30 is my dream match.Unfortunately,if it doesn’t happens I would like to see The Undertaker vs. John Cena at WrestleMania 30.

  5. Of course you are correct, my problem is that I can only imagine Sting as the old crow sting. I do not watch much TNA. So technically I am living in the past when it comes to sting. So that match would have been great 10-12 years ago. But do you think a Cena vs. Taker match would be a good match? I can't see it going over well and Cena give horrible night after a loss interviews on RAW. “You all seen it, I lost" terrible, terrible.

  6. I would have liked to see Undertaker vs. Sting, its hard to imagine that Vince would give that match to Sting and that would be the only reason I wouldn't want to see it. Vince is notorious for putting over his own guys first before building anything new. I think Goldbergs ego would be the train wreak you are talking about. Neither wrestler has great mic skills and subpar wrestling skills. However, the draw would be so huge. Having Goldberg come out in a hoodie or something and straight spear Ryback would make for great television, the only problem you have after that is 'what’s left" the actual match would suck so bad. You would only do it for the purse, there is no other reason.
