Home » WWE News » Why There Is Concern Over The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar, Original Plans for Big Show’s Push

- We noted before that WWE had been planning to do Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. That was discussed back when Show was feuding with The Authority. The plan was for Show to be on top and go through Randy Orton and Triple H, but not win the title, but come out of the program as a strong main eventer. The idea was to make Show strong for Lesnar at the Rumble so Lesnar would look stronger for The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX.

– Regarding Lesnar vs. Undertaker, there had been some concern because Lesnar works such a physical style and Taker is in really rough shape physically. This is why there was some talk of Sheamus facing Taker.

Another issue with Lesnar facing Taker is that a lot of Taker’s opponents, if not all, over the past several years have secretly worked out their match with him and practiced it. There was some concern over whether or not Lesnar would be willing to put in that much time preparing.

    That’s not a good match now. it would’ve been 8 years ago but not now. Undertaker would beaten into retirement

    Please WWE anyone but Sheamus. If not Lesnar give finally give us Taker vs. Cena. Or Daniel Bryan or Chris Jericho. Hell I’d even take WWE pulling a “wrestlemania rematch redemption” storyline for the 3rd time in a row and have Taker wrestle Punk again. When will HHH understand that his workout buddy Sheamus is not over. His last world title run was unwatchable.

    Save Lesnar for Batista. Put Taker against Bryan with the Wyatts.

    Taker shouldn’t stopped after 20-0. Period.

  • JohnCena33

    Sheamus vs Taker would be the biggest bore. Sheamus is the lest deserving person to face Taker. Just have Brock or Cena face taker not Sheamus.

    Never knew they practiced there matches, cool fact.
