The Streak

The Undertaker has had twenty five matches over the years at WrestleMania altogether. He made his WrestleMania debut at the seventh edition of the annual event (namely WrestleMania VII), against "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka defeating him in quick fashion. This victory marked the beginning of one the greatest winning streaks in sports entertainment history. Since then he has managed to defeat twenty other opponents extending the streak to 21-0 until he faced Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker’s winning streak at WrestleMania came to an end when Brock Lesnar pinned him in 25 minutes and 12 seconds to end his undefeated streak while shocking the world in the process. After his first loss at WrestleMania, The Undertaker returned to WrestleMania defeating two more opponents in the subsequent years until he was ultimately defeated by Roman Reigns to further the statistics to 23-2.

Dream Opponents

Following are ten dream opponents who The Undertaker never faced at WrestleMania:

01. Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan was the most popular wrestler of the 1980s and is also regarded as one of the most recognized wrestling stars all around the world. He has feuded with The Undertaker over the years, giving so many memorable matches that fans still remember. The Undertaker defeated Hulk Hogan to win his first WWE Championship at Survivor Series 1991. Despite having so many matches over the years, they never squared-off against each other at WrestleMania. This is a perfect WrestleMania dream match.

02. Bret “The Hitman” Hart

Bret Hart is regarded as one of the finest and most decorated technical wrestlers of all times. Paving the way for a generation of wrestlers, he headlined Wrestlemania on three different occasions but never faced-off against The Undertaker on the grandest stage of them all. Though, The Undertaker and Bret Hart have some history in the ring but a Wrestlemania match between the two would have been an absolute delight to watch.

03. Mankind

Who could forget the history between the two legendary icons? Mankind is one of the three faces of Mick Foley who debuted the day after Wrestlemania XII and quickly got into a feud with The Undertaker. Since then, the two have had some of the most remarkable matches taking their battles into crowds, backstage areas, and even in the boiler rooms of different arenas showcasing some of the most memorable and brutal matches in professional wrestling history. Instances that included Foley being thrown over the top of a cage onto an announcers table. Though, Mick Foley has never won at Wrestlemania but this rivalry should have been showcased at WrestleMania.

04. The Rock

The Rock has been known for electrifying fans all around the world for over two decades now. He is regarded as the greatest wrestling star in the world by many. The Rock has headlined WrestleMania multiple times and has defeated the likes of Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, and many more at WrestleMania. The Rock has faced The Undertaker on a few different occasions but never really got a chance to square-off against The Deadman at WrestleMania. The Undertaker vs. The Rock would be a great dream match at WrestleMania as two of the most decorated superstars of all times would bring the best in each other at the grandest stage of them all.

05. Stone Cold Steve Austin

Stone Cold and The Undertaker are two of the biggest names from the Attitude Era. They've had some intense rivalries over the years. Stone Cold is dubbed as the man who broke all the box office records in his time. He also headlined Wrestlemania on three different occasions. Despite facing The Undertaker numerous times, Stone Cold never squared-off against The Deadman at WrestleMania. Stone Cold Steve Austin could be a great opponent for The Undertaker at Wrestlemania as this is a perfect dream match worthy of being featured at the show of shows.

06. Sting

The man they call Sting, is undoubtedly one of the greatest in-ring performers to grace the squared-circle. Widely known for his time spent in the-now defunct promotion WCW, Sting is regarded as the Franchise of WCW. Although Sting has faced The Undertaker on a couple of occasions during Taker's time in WCW but they never faced each other in a televised match. Amazing characters in their own way, a match between these two legendary icons should be showcased at WrestleMania as this is one of the biggest and most sought for dream matches clamored by the wrestling fans worldwide.

07. John Cena

John Cena headlined WrestleMania five times in his illustrious career also winning and defending championships in the process. Earlier in his career, Cena had a few matches with The Deadman but that feud didn't last for too long. Over the years, The Undertaker fought some of the finest and most decorated superstars every year at WrestleMania. Similarly, John Cena has had his feuds with some of the greatest of all times but both never met at WrestleMania. The Undertaker versus John Cena at WrestleMania is definitely a dream match for the ages as two of the most popular in-ring performers of all times have a legion of fans who want this to happen at the show of shows.

08. Goldberg

The Undertaker has faced some of the toughest competitors over the years. He has also crossed paths with Goldberg on a couple of occasions like on Monday Night RAW or even at the Royal Rumble 2017 Pay-Per-View event, with The Undertaker eliminating Goldberg from the royal rumble match but the two never fought each other in a singles match. The Undertaker versus Goldberg is also an amazing dream match that should take place at WrestleMania for the fans to enjoy in great display of skills and vintage expertise.

09. Braun Strowman

Standing 6 foot & 8 inches tall and weighing more than 380 pounds, Braun Strowman might be an upcoming name in professional wrestling but this guy is gaining quick popularity through awesome display of strength and power combined. Strowman taking on The Deadman at WrestleMania would be a delight for the fans to watch as this would be one serious competition for The Deadman himself at this point of his career. Couldn't rule out a match like this one from my list of the ten dream Wrestlemania matches for The Undertaker.

10. Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon has his share of history with The Undertaker that includes feuds and alliances on multiple occasions. He has some of the most memorable matches against superstars like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Triple H, John Cena, CM Punk and many more. Not only he battled The Deadman, he also defeated him in a Buried Alive Match at Survivor Series in 2003. The Undertaker has defeated his son Shane McMahon at WrestleMania but haven't fought The Chairman of the board on the show of shows. This is also a dream match worthy to be featured at WrestleMania.

Conclusion

With a blend of creativity, skills and expertise, The Undertaker is undeniably a legendary figure. He has improvised his character so well over the years that audiences around the world have been awe-aspired every time he walked down the aisle. Any individual who has stepped foot in the ring with him knows how iconic he really is. This list of ten dream Wrestlemania opponents for The Undertaker highlights this iconic characteristic as all the names listed above have expressed their desires of facing The Deadman in the squared-circle in some point of their careers. This explains how great the character is in reality. Despite leaving his gloves, coat and hat in the middle of the ring and symbolically hinting a retirement, WrestleMania will always be remembered as The Undertaker's yard.

      There are only a couple of instances where The Undertaker defeated Brock Lesnar in his career. Otherwise, it was Brock Lesnar coming out on top whenever they battled, especially on Pay-per-view events.

      He is over 50 years of age and he only wrestles part-time, usually on a PPV event like WrestleMania, SummerSlam, etc.

      Wow, I thought he was old when I stopped watching back in the 90s. That is awesome that he is still wrestling!
