WWE creative chiefs are desperate for The Undertaker to face Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 31, but are still waiting for the green light from the Phenom before putting together their final plans for the biggest event of 2015.
Dave Meltzer's all-encompassing look at the business in the Wrestling Observer newsletter spoke in depth about The Undertaker's situation this week, with his appearance at Wrestlemania next year almost a certainty.
The Undertaker will be used in some form on March 29th at the Levi's Stadium, primarily because the WWE need to justify holding the legend on a seven-figure contract with some kind of output.
Bus image has ramped up speculation
Meltzer made a quite confident prediction that The Undertaker will return for Wrestlemania once again, an opinion enhanced by a photo leaked earlier this week of the superstar on promotional material for the event.
The Undertaker's famous face was plastered on a bus promoting Wrestlemania 31, the first indication that the former holder of wrestling's most famous winning streak will be back on our screens next year.
Wyatt preferred to Sting?
It remains to be seen how WWE would sell the idea of The Undertaker returning to face Waytt, after he was so brutally taken apart by Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30.
The Undertaker's defeat to Lesnar was easily among the most shocking moments in WWE history, with the streak ended at 21-0 by Paul Heyman's huge henchman.
Wyatt taps into that same dark demeanour that make's the Undertaker so special, which would make the psychology of that showdown particularly interesting. The leader of the Wyatt Family is very much WWE's pick to give The Undertaker yet another last hurrah at the grandest show of them all, not Sting.
Many hardcore WWE fans had hoped that Sting signing a short-term deal with the company he snubbed for so long meant a dream match against Taker was on the cards, but plans for Wrestlemania 31 are currently moving in a whole different direction.
