The Undertaker furthered his WrestleMania streak at WrestleMania 29 in 2013 where he defeated CM Punk. Given the fact that “The Deadman’s” streak is now at 21-0, that means that we are now only one year away from the potential 21-0, which will put "The Phenom" on the road to another WrestleMania goal such as 25-0 or even 30-0. Surely now, considering he has surpassed the 21-0 mark, the WWE will begin to pit "Taker against dream opponents; could we see Undertaker vs. Sting, Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar or Undertaker vs. someone else in 2014? Here are some potential opponents for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 29 in 2014!
Sting turned down the WWE’s offer in 2010, but given the fact that he always signs one year deals with TNA and he quite recently failed to defeat Bobby Roode for the TNA World Title in March of 2012 at Victory Road, as well as his stepping down as the GM of Impact Wrestling; could this signal his final hurrah in the promotion? Sting is a potential opponent for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30. It is the dream match everyone wants to see and it is the dream match that was so hyped this year that the entire world was in excitement for it. Could Sting vs. Undertaker happen in 2014 at WrestleMania 39? Millions of wrestling fans old and new are begging for it!
Excitingly, Sting has recently been in talks with the WWE in 2013. With his TNA future currently in question, could we see "The Icon" finally make his WWE debut soon?
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin
The 2011 return of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to the WWE should be treated with suspicion. Given his recent altercation with The Miz and the fact that Austin was shortly after active on Tough Enough, “The Rattlesnake” could return full-time to the WWE in the near future and if he did, it would be a huge deal. If the WWE is looking for a big opponent for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 in 2014, there would be few bigger than the legendary “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Not to mention; Austin and Taker have feuded in the past and therefore have history together. For what it's worth, Austin recently stated on Twitter that he would be open to a return for a huge match against someone such as Goldberg.
Austin recently announced that he is in the best shape of his life and would be open for one more run if the timing was right. Surely, no timing is better than WrestleMania 30, right?
Kurt Angle is currently a part of TNA Wrestling, but a return in time for WrestleMania 30 should not be ruled out of the question and if he did, he would undoubtedly put on a showstopper of a main event against The Undertaker. If there is anyone in the world other than Triple H or Shawn Michaels that could push The Undertaker to his limits at WrestleMania, it is Kurt Angle. Angle vs. Taker one more time at WrestleMania 30 in 2014 would truly be a masterpiece. These are two of thew finest workers to have ever lived and needless to say, this would be a dream come true.
Kurt Angle's TNA career also currently appears to be winding down. This could be a sign that the Olympic Gold Medalist will return to the WWE in 2014!
The Undertaker Vs. Goldberg is another dream match that never came to pass. The two are often compared due to the fact that Goldberg had an undefeated streak of 173-0 in WCW before losing to Kevin Nash. Of course, the victory was not entirely clean. Scott Hall who was armed with a stun gun intervened in Nash’s aid. The Undertaker and Goldberg are two timeless monsters in the world of professional wrestling and it is about time that they clashed. What better than at Undertaker’s potential 21-0 or 20-1? With so many similarities and a dream match that has been in the making since the 1990s, this would certainly be a flawless main event and Goldberg himself has stated he would be open for a WWE return against someone such as Steve Austin or Brock Lesnar.
In short, we NEED to see Goldberg Vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 in 2014!
In 2011, it was speculated that Vine McMahon was in talks with Dana White about allowing the UFC’s Brock Lesnar to make a one-off WWE return against The Undertaker. This was fuelled by the fact that the two had an altercation at a UFC event. While the match obviously didn’t happen in 2011, there was a chance that The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar will collide once again at WrestleMania 28 in 2012, which also didn't come to pass. These two men have meton countless occasions in the past including a bloody and brutal hell in a cell match. Millions of MMA and WWE fans would love to see these two ring behemoths collide once more in the New Year. Could Brock Lesnar, who is now retired from the UFC, make a WWE return to put Undertaker's streak at risk at WrestleMania 30 in 2014?
With both Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker in the WWE at the same time, now would be the best time for Undertaker Vs. Brock Lesnar one more time!
Masked Kane has been on a mission in the WWE since he returned under his mask. Kane, who was at one time synonymous with the WWE due to his mask, has put the mask back on. While he currently has his sights set on John Cena, it will likely only be a matter of time before Masked Kane challenges his brother of destruction, The Undertaker, once more. The two have an incredibly storied history, one of the most storied histories in all of wrestling in-fact and countless wrestling fans within the WWE Universe and indeed, all over the world, would love the chance to see Kane and Undertaker wrestle one more time at WrestleMania 30 in 2014.
More recently, Kane and Undertaker teamed with Daniel Bryan.
Think about it. Triple H and Shawn Michaels have shared their entire careers in the WWE together. Then, Shawn Michaels retired at the hands of The Undertaker. Since then, where has Triple H been and what has he done? He had been missing in action and has done nothing majorly special or definitive in the WWE at all with the exception of two feuds against Kevin Nash and then against Undertaker which resulted in their WrestleMania 28 Hell in a Cell masterpiece. It seems that just like Shawn Michaels’ career did, Triple H’s career is winding down. However, so is The Undertaker’s career. These two ring legends are very similar these days. It is likely that WrestleMania 30 in 2014 could see The Undertaker vs. Triple H in a career vs. streak match and it would be a great way to give Triple H one final chance before he hangs up his boots. These two always have phenomenal matches and while it would shock many WrestleMania fans, it would most definitely be a flawless match.
Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker are certainly no strangers to each other. They actually have a lot in common. At one time, they were the longest serving members of the WWE roster and the only two active superstars to be on the first edition of Monday Night Raw. They are also legendary rivals from the 1990’s and the not so distant past alike. Shawn Michaels has challenged The Undertaker twice at WrestleMania. The first time they met went down as one of the greatest WrestleMania matches of all time, the same can also be said for the second time they met – when The Undertaker laid HBK’s career to rest. However, due to the fact that Shawn Michaels recently returned to the WWE for a one off return during the Triple H vs. Kevin Nash feud, could HBK lace up the boots one more time for one final shot against The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak at WrestleMania 30 in 2014? None would argue that there are none more deserving of one final shot than Shawn Michaels, especially considering his referee role in The Undertaker vs. Triple H Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 28 in 2012.
Who will The Undertaker face at WrestleMania 30 in 2014?
There is currently so much potential for what could be The Undertaker’s final match. Should The Undertaker walk into WrestleMania 28 at 20-0 and leave at 21-0 with his streak in tact and his career in question; exactly who could prove to be his opponent? Will Undertaker wrestle Sting? Will Undertaker wrestle Steve Austin? Will Undertaker Wrestle Kurt Angle? Will Undertaker wrestle Goldberg? Will Undertaker wrestle Brock Lesnar or will he wrestle someone completely different? Only time will tell.
