Original plans to have The Undertaker as a heel in current role

Published 6 Comments

It has been 15 months since Brock Lesnar put the world in absolute shock, when he ended The Undertaker's legendary undefeated streak at Wrestlemania XXX.

Since then, Brock Lesnar has been WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He has engaged in feuds with the likes of John Cena, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns and even The Undertaker has faced off with Bray Wyatt without taking on the Beast Incarnate.

Taking their time

All of this has led the WWE Universe scratching their heads, asking why he has left it so long to exact his revenge on The Beast Incarnate.

Here is my take on the situation: WWE initially wanted to bring The Undertaker back as the company's part-time heel. I believe he was sure to defeat Brock Lesnar with the help of his younger brother, Kane.

This would put Brock Lesnar in a feud with Kane (that he would inevitably win to make him look strong again), and would make The Undertaker the heel in what could have been a stellar feud with The Icon, Sting.

First of all, let's look at this objectively. The Undertaker stopped the company's top babyface from winning back the WWE title, which is something a heel would do.

He hit Lesnar with a low blow, which is something a heel would do. He continuously proceeded to beat down a helpless Lesnar, which is something a heel would do.

See the pattern here? By making The Undertaker do this it makes him look like a bitter old man who has no real fuel besides wanting to beat Brock Lesnar. 

The only problem is, The Undertaker is currently part of a select few WWE legends who the fans will cheer regardless of their status within the WWE. So here it looks as if WWE scrapped the idea of turning him heel.

What now?

But where do WWE go from here? There have been talks of Kane interfering on The Undertaker's behalf and Sting interfering on Brock Lesnar's behalf to give Lesnar the win at SummerSlam but where does that leave The Undertaker? Perhaps a babyface vs babyface match at Wrestlemania 32 between Sting and Taker. 

If this match was to happen though, I could see it being The Undertaker's last match in WWE. Allowing Sting to win his first match in WWE and allowing The Undertaker to retire in his home state.

Lesnar vs Kane would certainly be a good Royal Rumble match, with Brock taking Kane to suplex city and defeating him in dominant fashion. 

It will certainly be interesting to see how WWE use these four men after SummerSlam and what their immediate future holds.
