It was clear that The Undertaker will face The Big Dog Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33 when former Shield member eliminated the Dead Man from the Royal Rumble. The two had the confrontation on Monday Night Raw last week, and the WWE announced that these two would meet in Orlando just a couple hours before this week’s edition of Raw.
The Undertaker is no longer undefeated at the “Showcase of Immortals,” but he is still the main man during the Wrestlemania season, and his opponent is always under the big spotlight. Roman Reigns is not liked by the fans even though he should be a babyface. Still, the people don’t like him because he looks like John Cena 2.0, a guy that always overcomes the odds and people are getting tired of that kind of a character.
But, considering the fact that Roman Reigns rarely loses and that Undertaker is 23-1 at the grandest stage of them all, this is going to be a tough match to predict as both of these men don’t lose often. The logical move here is for The Undertaker to put over Roman, but this is The Dead Men’s yard, Wrestlemania is his home, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
On the other hand, there is always a chance that Roman Reigns turns heel. He is going to get a lot of heat from the fans if he beats The Undertaker in Orlando as a babyface even if it is clean. There is no doubt that fans will turn on him some more, which should have the company thinking about him taking a turn before the show, during the match itself or the next night on Monday Night Raw. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with this storyline.
