One of the biggest matches to be rumoured for this year's Wrestlemania sees Bray Wyatt challenge the legendary Undertaker, in what is speculated to be a casket match.
The former leader of the Wyatt Family began to deliver cryptic messages following his failure to win this year's Royal Rumble back in January, before it was revealed at WWE Fastlane that Bray was in-fact challenging the Deadman to what could be his last match on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
This week on Smackdown, The Eater of Worlds had The Undertaker's infamous Urn in his possession and it seems he is willing to bring it to Monday Night Raw because it could be the only thing to bring Undertaker back to WWE.

WWE released the following teaser on their website, as a sign of what is to come on this Monday's Raw.
It said: "The WWE Universe knows the history of Undertaker’s urn and the significance that it holds to his eternal legacy. It’s also no secret that the sacred urn has some mystical connection with The Demon of Death Valley.

"Wyatt knows having the urn in his hands is sure to get under The Undertaker’s skin. So, will Wyatt’s SmackDown reveal compel The Deadman to finally rise from the ashes of his WrestleMania 30 defeat?"
If the sight of the urn in Wyatt’s hands doesn't bring The Undertaker back, maybe whatever the creepy Superstar has planned for this Monday night will. Wyatt professed that he will unleash the urn’s spirit on Raw, making us wonder what he could possibly have planned. Will we witness the “power” of the urn come to life? And, if so, will we finally see The Deadman in the flesh on Raw?"
It has been speculated that we won't be seeing Undertaker in the flesh until Wrestlemania 31 in three weeks time. Instead, the former holder of the streak will respond to Bray's challenge in a creepy and unique way, the only way he can.
WWE accidentally leaked a build up video that had been made for the match, which means that Undertaker is set to accept the challenge either this week or next week on Raw.
If Undertaker accepts this week then Bray may not have very much to talk about in the following two weeks leading up to the biggest event of the year, so it would make sense to take it down to the wire, and not see Undertaker accept until the go home episode of Raw on March 23rd.
It will be interesting to see what Undertaker's motivation to accept is, since many fans don't believe the legend has anything left to prove or anything left to gain by coming back after the ending of his streak last year. It will also be interesting to see what sort of shape the 49-year-old will be in at the end of the month, after he celebrates his 50th Birthday on March 24th, just days prior to what could be the final match of his career.
The Demon is a sure-fire Hall of Famer, and could be going into the Hall of Fame as early as next year, when Wrestlemania takes place from his home state of Texas.
