WWE to put Undertaker vs Lesnar III on hold

Published 22 Comments

WWE are said to be in no hurry to have The Undertaker take on Brock Lesnar for a third time following their match at SummerSlam on Sunday night.

No rush

As reported by What Culture, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Obsevrer Radio that the third instalment of this huge feud will be put on hold until WrestleMania 32.

Alvarez stated:

"It looks like no Undertaker for a while and they’ll just hold it off until WrestleMania 32." To which Meltzer replied: "Yep, that's what it looks like, Lesnar's not advertised for anything other than the Garden."

The pair had an exciting match at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Brooklyn this past Sunday night, only for it to end in a somewhat confusing style.

Following a tap-out by The Dead Man, the timekeeper proceeded to ring the bell without referee Charles Robinson's say-so, causing Robinson to argue with the timekeeper and eventually the match was restarted.

After this mix-up the Undertaker was able to strike a low-blow to Lesnar, who eventually succumbed to the Hell's Gate hold.

The idea of having these two icons of professional wrestling both past and present, take each other on was hugely exciting at first.

This excitement was still apparent when The Beast shocked the entire WWE Universe at WrestleMania 31 by ending The Dead Man's emphatic streak, but it was always going to be hard to maintain this excitement following such an event. 

Tough ask

Working out when exactly to have the third instalment of this feud take place therefore is a tall order for the company, with keeping it off-screen until WrestleMania 32 seeming the best option at present. 

WrestleMania 32 will be in The Undertaker's home state and would provide the perfect setting for what could well be his final match as a professional wrestler. 

In contrast, holding off until The Grandest Stage Of Them All next year could also be problematic as it is clear the second match between the two giants of WWE was not exactly the biggest hit with the fans. 

With this in mind, WWE will need to maintain fans' interest several months down a line and will certainly need something special to happen, unlike at SummerSlam, in order to get followers of WWE as excited about it as they should be. 

Ultimately, having Brock Lesnar face the Undertaker again is a match we can be sure will happen but following the confusing finish at SummerSlam as well as the fact it will be the third time we see the bout, WWE will surely need something special to make it as memorable a match as it deserves.
