Any match involving The Undertaker is always highly anticipated by the WWE Universe, but there could be some disappointing news for those hoping to see him face Kevin Owens.
As reported by What Culture, it is Vince McMahon who has turned down the idea of a potential match between the professional wrestling icon and WWE's new top-level recruit at WrestleMania 32 in The Undertaker's home state of Texas in April 2016.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McMahon supposedly already has an idea in mind for a match involving 50-year-old Taker.

Although rumours do not confirm this match-up, we could well see The Beast Brock Lesnar face The Undertaker. It seems that Paul Heyman's recent consistency in mentioning The Dead Man is no coincidence.
Given it would be the ideal setting on The Grandest Stage Of Them All for The Undertaker to have one final match before his retirement from professional wrestling, a bout against the man who emphatically ended his iconic streak last year would be more than fitting.
Even with this in mind, there has been yet more speculation regarding the chances of The Undertaker possibly wrestling even sooner than WrestleMania 32, given the incredible shape he appears to be in in a recent photograph.
Ready for action
Joe DeFranco, a specialist trainer, posted this photograph earlier this week which clearly proves he is focused and in a great physical condition surely implying he is ready for an imminent WWE return.
In addition, he has been the hot topic amongst more members of the WWE Universe after it was announced that both he and Sting would be making an appearance at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event which is scheduled to take place at the end of August.
Although it has not yet been made clear what matches these two professional wrestling legends will be involved in, even their inclusion within the event is exciting enough.
It does however prove that WWE is still keen to resort back to its tactic of bringing in legends of the company when they suffer a decline in ratings.
Whilst this is an understandable technique, it is unusual for it to be released as public knowledge that two such huge names are set to be making a scheduled return.
Perhaps this is a deliberate effort in order to throw the WWE Universe off course so The Undertaker in particular is able to make a surprise return when the fans least expect it.
If DeFranco's photo is anything to go by, this could be sooner rather than later.
