WrestleMania 32 is almost upon us, and the recent injury problems, as well as Daniel Bryan's retirement, has scuppered many plans to have some huge matches taking place in Dallas.
One spectacle fans look forward to every single year at WrestleMania is The Undertaker, even though the streak is no longer intact his presence is still something fans want to soak in and this year it will be no different.
WHO WILL FACE THE DEADMAN?
The only thing is, we don’t even know who is in line to take on The Deadman at WrestleMania this April.

An opponent for The Undertaker has been debated over the last few months and the name which has popped up – and shot down just as quick – is Braun Strowman. Vince McMahon is high on Strowman, but that match has been scrapped because of the poor reception within the company as well as the online backlash this news received.
John Cena looked like a favourite to take on The Undertaker, but with his shoulder injury, it’s not clear whether he’ll be back in time to build-up the match or even be able to compete at WrestleMania.
OWENS VS. 'TAKER?
Despite options being wiped out almost every single week, one thing the WWE don’t plan on doing is having Kevin Owens involved in a match with The Undertaker. This is a match Owens has publicly stated he’d love to have at WrestleMania and according to the Wrestling Observer, via WhatCulture, Owens pitched the match ‘hard’ backstage.
Despite his efforts, WWE officials were not interesting in the idea, and Wrestling Observer have claimed that this match won’t be happening. You can understand that the match is a risk, but it would still do wonders for Owens’ career.
OFFICIALS NOT INTERESTED
Triple H is said to have plenty of faith in Owens and sees him as the top heel in the company in the near future, but it looks as if the WWE are exploring other avenues for The Deadman.
The way things have gone it doesn’t make sense to have Owens mix it up with The Undertaker. He doesn’t have the momentum heading into a feud of this stature – but you can’t blame Owens for the booking.
Perhaps one day we will be able to see the two go at it as Owens’s character is perfect for this sort of feud, but for now, it looks like he’ll be focusing on stars such as Dolph Ziggler or even AJ Styles.
