Undertaker vs. Daniel Bryan Instead of Brock Lesnar?

It has been reported that the Undertaker may want to face Daniel Bryan instead of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX.

It was speculated many months ago that the initial plan was to have Lesnar fight Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX. This has been a match that the WWE has wanted to schedule since WrestleMania 27. The match obviously never took place since Lesnar didn’t leave the UFC until 2012.

There is some concern now that Lesnar may not be the best opponent for Undertaker. Undertaker is getting old and his body is not as strong as it used to be. A big guy like Lesnar could further injure him. Not to mention, Lesnar is a former MMA fighter and doesn’t know his own strength at times.

If Undertaker doesn’t face Lesnar, another plan is for him to face Bryan instead. Undertaker may want to face someone smaller like Bryan, much like how he wrestled CM Punk last year. This could set up a storyline with Bryan turning heel and joining the Wyatt Family. After all, Undertaker is too popular to turn into a heel .

Personally, I don’t mind if Undertaker fights Bryan instead of Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX. Bryan is much smaller than Lesnar so he can wrestle a safer match.

Lesnar, on the other hand, could fight someone else like Batista. I’m sure that match will sell tickets since both of these guys never really wrestled each other on TV before. The only time I remember these guys fighting was when they were both in the developmental stages of their careers. A match between the two now would be awesome.

    I’ll definitely agree with your assessment of Batista. I think Batista will challenge Undertaker but as Lesnar wrecks havok he may have no choice but to do the ultra face to Lesnar’s ultimate heel routine.
