"Finally, the match we've all waited decades to see. The Phenom Undertaker vs. The Icon Sting!"

A huge portion of the WWE Universe would lose their minds if Michael Cole actually spoke these words at Wrestlemania 29.

For many in the WWE Universe this is a dream match.

Well, it seems there is a perfect storm in the works to book, arguably, the most anticipated match of all time as the WWE Universe has turned its focus to the Road to Wrestlemania.

My hope is that The Undertaker will return to RAW on January 14th and the search for his Wrestlemania 29 opponent will begin.

Over the last four years, we've seen The Phenom take on Shawn Michaels and Triple H twice each.

WWE Creative knows that it can't keep repeating itself—at least it should know it.)

So, who is left? 

John Cena? The Rock? CM Punk? Brock Lesnar?

Imagine this: The Rock beats CM Punk at The Royal Rumble and becomes the WWE Champion. Cena wins the Royal Rumble. Rock vs. Cena for the WWE Championship at Mania.


If Brock Lesnar returns to WWE before Wrestlemania, Brock vs. Punk would be a great matchup.

Plus, Paul Heyman could be the tie that helps the storyline make sense.

Who does that leave for Taker?

Come on, WWE. You can do it.

The timing has never been better, and the stars have never aligned this well.

Yes, both The Undertaker and Sting are getting on in years, but both men are still capable of putting on fantastic matches.

Sting has long been against joining the WWE, which he references in his 1998 video “Sting Unmasked”, but surely he wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to put that final exclamation mark on an already legendary career.

So what's holding Sting back?

Could the biggest issue be the way that the WWE “does business”?

Or that Sting was seen on TNA Impact on January 3rd?

No, the biggest issue is that Sting has to agree to lose to The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 29.
