Thursday on the Wrestling Observer Live radio show, host Bryan Alvarez said he heard from a source within WWE that the company has plans for Braun Strowman to face Big Show at Fastlane and beat him, which will then lead to a WrestleMania showdown with The Undertaker.
Dave Meltzer has spoken at length in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter about WWE making plans for The Undertaker to face John Cena at the event. However, those plans were scrapped with Cena’s recent shoulder injury and surgery. With a lack of top level opponents for “The Deadman,” it seems the choice has been made to go with the huge monster of the Wyatt Family.
During the early days of his career, The Undertaker would often work with opponents larger than him, such as Giant Gonzalez and King Kong Bundy. This, however, would result in lackluster bouts which The Deadman himself has said he wasn’t fond of (in interviews in the early 2000s when he was the “American Bad Ass”).
While it’s always possible they decide to take a different route, as of right now, Taker versus Strowman appears likely to take place on April 3, 2016, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
