At WrestleMania XXX Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker's 21-0 unbeaten streak and wrestling fans were left in shock.
Every single year the streak came closer and closer to ending but it's safe to say that the fans were shocked whilst others were disappointed that Lesnar did the unthinkable and ended the streak.
It's no secret that The Undertaker is not in the best of shapes right now, at his age as well as the injuries he has sustained over the years his future is still up in the air, but will The Deadman want to bow out of the WWE with a loss to his long-time rival?
Nobody knows whether The Undertaker will decide to call it a day or he will return to have one more match, so what is next for The Undertaker in the WWE?
John Cena is the face of the WWE and is perhaps one of the biggest names in the WWE that hasn't had a shot at the streak. It doesn't matter whether you love him or you hate him, the man does deserve the respect and the credit he has earned during his time in the WWE, The Undertaker returning to defeat the face of the company would be a good way for The Undertaker to go out on top. Losing to The Deadman won't harm John Cena in any way, at least when he hangs up his boots he can say he tried - and failed - to beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
Will he put over a younger superstar?
There are a handful of superstars that are touted as the future of the WWE, when the likes of Orton and Cena take a step back the likes of Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro will step forward to carry the WWE. Right now nobody at NXT will probably build a big enough reputation inside a year to take on The Undertaker so Reigns and Cesaro could still be a possibility with the direction they are going in. You can imagine just how much a match with The Undertaker can elevate two young superstars such as Cesaro and Reigns, the match itself will be good and the build up could match it. The only negative about this is that The Undertaker won't lose another match at WrestleMania, especially back to back.
This is something wrestling fans would definitely want to watch, purely because of the extra-creepy build up we would be treated to every week. The advantage this has for The Undertaker is that he still wouldn't be needed to turn up Monday Night Raw every single week because Bray Wyatt has all the tools to carry any feud he is placed in, similar to what we are witnessing nowadays with John Cena. Bray can work in the ring, he will be able to carry The Undertaker and it would be a fitting final match for The Undertaker and a massive opportunity for Bray Wyatt.
Kane and The Undertaker have had their history, from Kane's explosive debut to The Brother's of Destruction to the moment Kane buried his brother alive, prompting a return at WrestleMania XX for The Deadman. The two have had a long career in the WWE and are guaranteed hall of famers, they work well together in the ring and with Kane's career slowly coming to an end to, a final match between the two legends at WrestleMania would be the perfect send off for both men.
Retire as champion
Another fitting way to go out on top would be to retire as the WWE or World Heavyweight Champion, it would be perfect for The Undertaker to return at the Royal Rumble and earn a championship match at WrestleMania and defeat the champion, whoever it may be at the time, and defeat him to become the champion before retiring as a champion. There probably is no better way to go out.
This is another - perhaps the biggest and most popular - fantasy match wrestling fans are eagerly waiting for. Sting is the most famous superstar to have never wrestled in a WWE ring and The Undertaker is perhaps the biggest legend in the company. For the two to step inside the ring with no streak on the line would split the fans in the middle, maybe The Undertaker won't lose back to back matches at WrestleMania but fans will still want to believe that this could go either way.
Maybe the best thing for The Undertaker to do right now is to call it a day. The man has achieved there is possibly to achieve in the company. He has been in some of the biggest and most interesting feuds, he was a key superstar during the Attitude Era and has obviously created something special with the unbeaten streak, that is until Brock Lesnar ended it. The Undertaker returning could tarnish what he has achieved in the last few years, and leaving on a loss would certainly get Lesnar over as one of the most destructive superstars in history, achieving what the likes of Shawn Michaels and Triple H couldn't do.
WWE fans, what do you think is next for The Undertaker? Should he have one final match? Or should he retire once and for all? Have your say in the comments section below and come discuss all things WWE with me on Twitter @RazK28!
