In a new post on their official website, WWE asks if Bray Wyatt is calling out The Undertaker or someone else in his cryptic vignettes. As previously reported, Wyatt is expected to challenge WWE’s Phenom on the “grandest stage of them all,” WrestleMania, on March 29.
Wyatt has been making ominous threats and comments towards, who is believed to be The Undertaker, since December of 2014. After reports from WWE sources claimed that The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, had been meeting with WWE officials and was a “go” for WrestleMania 31, Wyatt’s video promos began getting more specific.
During the Feb. 16 edition of “Monday Night Raw,” Wyatt was seen talking to a nail, then driving that nail into a wooden object, believed to be a coffin. All the while, Wyatt was talking about how both he, and the object of his “affection,” are reapers that never really die. Wyatt also continuously talks about how much he admired the one he’s calling out, before a tragedy befell him. Is Wyatt talking about Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak ending at WrestleMania XXX?
WWE.com comments on the matter,
“For several weeks now, Bray Wyatt seems to have been focusing a series of cryptic messages on someone specifically. But just who is the figure in question?
“Wyatt’s dark diatribes have spoken of not fearing, but pitying this person. He talks of the “tragedy” that has befallen him. He talks of himself being the Reaper and of being the answer. But no matter how colorful his presentation may be, Wyatt has not yet revealed who the actual target of his rage might be.
“Could Wyatt simply be taunting one of the many enemies that he has made since stepping into the squared circle? Might he be speaking to John Cena, who’s never-give-up attitude “will not die”? Dean Ambrose? Kane? Certainly the all-out wars that he has had with these larger-than-life competitors would still be festering inside his brain. Moreover, he may be speaking of unfinished business with the likes of former disciple Erick Rowan, who Wyatt most recently clashed with in the Royal Rumble Match and who has definitely been stuck in a state of “limbo” since returning to WWE following the “tragedy” of being fired by The Authority.
“There is another intriguing possibility, though: one that has all of us at WWE.com champing at the bit. What if The New Face of Fear were actually calling out The Undertaker? After all, The Demon of Death Valley does tend to re-emerge on The Road to WrestleMania, and Bray Wyatt is just the kind of darkness that would pique The Phenom’s interest. It only stands to reason that the two ominous figures would speak the same language. If fact, Wyatt’s most recent message shows him driving a spike into wood. What if that wood were a coffin, the very symbol of The Deadman? If it were true, the mind games that would occur between the two forces of nature would only be outdone by the epic collision that would surely follow on The Grandest Stage of Them All.”
With Undertaker slated to appear on “Monday Night Raw” on Feb. 23, the night after WWE “Fastlane,” we may get our answer sooner, rather than later.
