Legendary professional wrestler The Undertaker confirmed this morning that he will return from a long hiatus to face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania, in hopes of extending his losing streak to two.
The streak began nearly one year ago when the Undertaker was defeated by Brock Lensar at WrestleMania 30 — a loss that many wrestling fans have since criticized as being “too predictable.”
The so-called Phenom has not been seen in WWE since that streak-launching loss, and has reportedly been avoiding any form of exercise or training in order to practically guarantee a quick loss to Wyatt.
According to renowned wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, The Undertaker recently signed a 20-year contract with WWE, leading to speculation that the Deadman hopes his new losing streak will eventually overshadow his previous 21-match winning streak.
A man of few words, the Undertaker released a brief video statement this morning, stating only: “I will be conquered by Bray Wyatt, and I will rest in peeeeaaace… for another 365 days or so.”
