Coming off the back of being defeated by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 there were doubts over whether The Undertaker would ever wrestle again.
The Streak had been broken, along with the hearts of many fans, and The Deadman had already been reducing his in-ring schedule for a number of years. However, as later became clear, the man himself felt he had more to prove.
In February of the following year, Bray Wyatt began calling out The Undertaker in a series of cryptic promos which led to a match between the pair at WrestleMania 31. Although the bout was considered a dream match for many, it is widely considered to have underdelivered, in large part to Wyatt struggling with a legitimate ankle injury.
The Undertaker Told Vince McMahon To Take Care Of Bray Wyatt
Following the pair coming face to face on the January 23rd episode of Raw, it was reported by Wrestle Votes that ‘Taker has always been a big fan of Wyatt. In fact, after their match in 2015, he reportedly told Vince McMahon to take care of the younger star.
“Feels like a good time to tweet this, following their match at WrestleMania 31 Undertaker told Vince in the post match embrace to “take care of him” in reference to Bray. Regardless of what happen in the interim, Taker has always been a huge Wyatt supporter. It showed just now.”
Although Wyatt remained with WWE for a further six years, he was eventually released after reportedly falling out with McMahon.
On the special 30th anniversary edition of Monday Night Raw, Undertaker and Wyatt stood in the same ring for the first time since Survivor Series in 2015. The American Badass came to the ring to confront LA Knight before the pair were joined by Bray Wyatt. As Undertaker lined up for a Chokeslam, he instead shared a knowing look with Wyatt before throwing Knight in his direction for a Sister Abigail.
As Undertaker left the ring he whispered something in Wyatt’s ear which appeared to greatly affect the star.
