World Wrestling Entertainment is considered as one of the most decorated platforms in sports entertainment. From the time World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment evolved, WWE Universe came to witness countless wrestling moments, a journey of a star to become a superstar and more importantly, are wrestling pay-per-views that include WWE’s biggest flagship event Wrestlemania. The year 2020 brings you the 36th annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view, to be held on April 5, 2020, at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
After Drew McIntyre sealed a victory at the Royal Rumble this year, he will be going to face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 36. As a wrestling lover, it is known that Wrestlemania is incomplete without ‘The Phenom’ i.e., The Undertaker. However, the question of his Wrestlemania return still remains a mystery.
Wrestlemania 35 came and gone with no appearance of the Dead Man for the first time in almost twenty years. The Undertaker was last seen standing with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre at Extreme Rules in 2019. Since then, the WWE Universe has been craving to listen to the legendary bells sounds with thunder sounds and a dark arena moment.
Many rumors and news spread out that some of the WWE fans would probably prefer the company to leave Taker out in order to give the younger stars a chance, but there’s still a big clamor for his presence, even in 2020. WrestleMania 36 is just months away and WWE still hasn’t set up any storyline for The Taker. However, the report has added that The Undertaker is looking for a clash at ‘The Grandest Stage of them all’.
If sources are to be believed, The American Badass is currently in talks with WWE about making an appearance at the show, but who would be his opponent still creating a buzz all around. At Wrestlemania 30, WWE Universe went into shock when Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker, ending his streak with 21-1. He then lost a match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania, thus he is now 21-2.
Mark William Calaway or The Undertaker played his first-ever WrestleMania in 1991. Ever since then, we have seen him winning WrestleMania 24 times out of the 26 matches he has played. As he wasn’t a part of Wrestlemania 35, The Undertaker did take part in Raw, which took place shortly after the show. He hasn’t shown signs of retirement yet, as he still delivering some extraordinary performance despite his age. His impeccable in-ring performances always charge the WWE Universe to see him more and more. For nearly two decades, The Undertaker has been constantly entertaining his fans at Wrestlemania by putting down several legendary superstars like Shawn Michaels, Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Edge, Kane, John Cena and many more.
In 2019, WWE hinted at a dream match between The Undertaker and Sting on Twitter. Just a couple of months prior, Sting also said that the only bout he would come out of retirement for is that dream match with The Undertaker. There is no such possibility of a match between these two mega wrestling stars at this point of time, but in recent years, WWE has started to believe in ‘best for the business’ so what if ‘The Phenom’ and ‘The Icon’ agrees to go eye-to-eye at this year’s Wrestlemania event.
Reports about his return to WWE has started taking shape, but if he doesn’t step in the ring at WrestleMania, WWE needs to find a way to get him there. The show simply isn’t the same without The Deadman, given his incredible history on The Grandest Stage of Them All. WWE fans are waiting eagerly to receive official confirmation of Dead Man’s return with a strong storyline with his opponent for Wrestlemania 36. Now, the WWE Universe will have to tap their shoes more on whether The Undertaker would be participating in a match or just making some form of a cameo appearance at Wrestlemania.
WrestleMania is considered as WWE’s flagship event, having first been held in 1985. It is the longest-running professional wrestling event in the history of sports entertainment. The upcoming 36th WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view will take place on April 5, 2020, where wrestlers from both Raw and Smackdown will battle to record their names in WWE’s history books.
