– Vince McMahon has reportedly been wanting to do a Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker match for quite some time and with Undertaker’s deteriorating health, this year’s WrestleMania may be the last time the company has a chance to do it. Some liken it to the proverbial “passing of the torch” from the veteran Undertaker to Reigns.
– There are several scenarios that could play out in the match, including a Reigns heel turn, but the long term plan for WWE is to still to have Roman as the “face of the company.”
– As for Undertaker, as we saw at the Royal Rumble, he was clearly not in very good shape due to a problematic hip that is still very painful even after a recent surgery. According to sources, Taker has been advised that he needs hip replacement surgery but he’s been putting that off until his in-ring career is over.
