Whether WWE fans like it or not, The Undertaker will officially battle Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.
Majority of fans aren’t looking forward to it, mainly because they wanted somebody like John Cena to be in that role as it was a genuine plan WWE had in place before changing their minds.
REIGNS VS THE UNDERTAKER
The big talking point surrounding their now-confirmed clash is whether The Deadman’s last match in the WWE could happen in Orlando on April 2, and not many are excited at the prospect of The Big Dog retiring him in his own yard.

While it’s something you can usually overlook, there’s no denying that WWE have dropped multiple hints that this is the way it could go.
The latest hint takes us to a WWE.com poll, where the question is being asked to fans whether we believe Reigns will retire The Phenom.

ANOTHER BIG HINT
Three choices are available, you can either vote that Reigns will end The Undertaker’s career, Reigns will win the match but it won’t be the end of The Phenom’s career or that Reigns won’t win the match and won’t end his career either.
While it seems like an ordinary question on the surface, it’s not the only hint that’s been given.
Let’s think about it, when is the last time retirement came into play for The Undertaker with this much focus on it?
Since battling Shawn Michaels, he’s gone on to face the likes of Bray Wyatt and CM Punk, where the term ‘retirement’ hasn’t been brought up, but they’re bringing it up a lot more than usual this time around.
This comes just days after WWE did a similar thing in an official kids’ magazine – one WWE publishes themselves – where they hinted at retirement again and that Reigns could be the one to do that.
Not only that, he brought it up in his segment with The Heart Break Kid and confirmed his intentions to retire The Undertaker, and with so much focus on it now and with WWE wanting to build Reigns up, if he can’t send him into retirement then is he really the threat Vince McMahon wants to portray him as?
It seems as if Vince knows this could be his final bow, as there’s also reportedly been discussion about changing the WrestleMania 33 main event to this match, allowing The Deadman to go out on a high – even if he loses.
With most fans voting for the third option in the poll, they could be in for a massive surprise come April 2 as it doesn’t seem like they’ll be ready for The Undertaker to lose for a second time at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
