WWE accidentally confirm The Undertaker's WrestleMania plans

Published 33 Comments

The WWE today moved quickly to remove two videos posted on their official YouTube channel which gave away their plans for legendary wrestler The Undertaker at this year's WrestleMania XXXI.

Major mistake

In the wake of Bray Wyatt calling out The Dead Man on a recent RAW show, the WWE had been hoping to build the suspense over whether The Undertaker would indeed accept the challenge and turn up in San Francisco for the big event.

Unfortunately, after a major PR disaster, they briefly published two videos on their popular YouTube channel in which the Bray Wyatt vs The Undertaker match was hyped - thus giving making any possible speculation in the coming weeks effectively pointless.

First reported by Wrestling Inc, the videos were quickly removed by WWE themselves after they realised the potentially damaging error.

Building the hype

With Wyatt having put himself forward as the man to next take on The Dead Man - and seek to inflict a second consecutive defeat for The Undertaker at WrestleMania - fans have been on tender hooks waiting for the veteran himself to reply.

Anticipation reached fever pitch earlier this week when The Undertaker's wife posted a picture of the big man working out - presumably in preparation for the big event at the end of March - and that suspense could have lasted all the way through to WrestleMania itself had the WWE played the angle right.

Mania prospects

Now that it looks certain that The Undertaker will be back for his 23rd WrestleMania match up there can at least be speculation about what to expect when he comes face to face with Wyatt.

Will the veteran come out on top after his disappointing 2014 loss, or will he again be forced to watch on as his legacy takes another hit with a second straight defeat?

It should at least be an intriguing match with Wyatt himself looking to establish himself as one of the top heels in the WWE right now.

The mistake of revealing their plans doesn't look good for the WWE but at least, after a poll today showed that over 75% of fans wanted to see The undertaker back for one for match, they have got their decision right.

What do you think WWE fans? Is it right for The Undertaker to have another match, or did last year prove that he is simply too old to be competitive? And who will come out on top when he meets Wyatt? Let us know what you think in the comments section below...
