WWE fans were stunned at last year's WrestleMania, when The Undertaker's seemingly inexorable Streak was brought to an end by Brock Lesnar.

There was suggestion that Taker was on his way out, looking weaker than usual during the match, but he put any rumours of an imminent retirement to bed at WrestleMania 31 last night, looming large once more and crushing Bray Wyatt.

The clash was angled around Bray suggesting that he was the new face of fear in the WWE, an idea that was challenged towards the end of the bout in a cool moment where Bray crab walked across the ring towards Taker, only for him to do one of his trademark coffin-esque sit-ups.



Wyatt did get a fair few shots in and almost had Undertaker in a Sister Abigail, but the Phenom countered with a Tombstone Piledriver for the victory.

The WWE was keen to show that the Undertaker can still be a force in the promotion, tweeting that his "fire still burns" as Jim Ross claimed "Taker looks great" and has "fuel left in the tank".




It remains to be seen how much longer the 50-year-old can wrestle for, with the most popular rumour seeing him go out in a momentous match with fellow veteran Sting at WrestleMania 32.
