Extensive Update On The Leading Candidate To Challenge The Undertaker For “The Streak” At Wrestlemania XXX – No Longer Brock Lesnar
JANUARY 22, 2014 BY RICHARD GRAY
The card for Wrestlemania XXX remains up in the air headed into Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, mainly because The Undertaker still hasn’t committed to a singles match against Brock Lesnar.
There was some cha. free er last week about Undertaker possibly facing Daniel Bryan and as of this week, that match is starting to look more likely. This is also part of the reason why WWE has “sped up” Bryan’s program with Bray Wyatt.
As we’ve previously reported, the program between Bryan and The Wyatt Family was scheduled to go through Wrestlemania, however, with Bryan emerging as the lead contender to face Undertaker, that angle has to be blown off before the pay-per-view this spring. By all accounts Undertaker plans to work Wrestlemania, he’s just concerned about a match with Brock Lesnar.
Undertaker feels he wouldn’t be able to accommodate Lesnar’s more physical style (in part due to two artificial hips) and the bout would be limited. However, we’re told Undertaker feels Bryan can work around his limitations and get a “great match out of him” whereas a bout against Lesnar would not be as much of a sure thing.
