Undertaker will return to the "Showcase of the Immortals" to defend his streak at WrestleMania 30 on Sun., April 6, 2014, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, against Brock Lesnar.
Indeed, they are going ahead with the originally rumored plans of having these two work a match at the biggest show of the year. How they got there was quite simple, really: Lesnar came out on Monday Night Raw this evening in Green Bay and it was said he was told by The Authority that he could not challenge for the WWE world heavyweight championship at WrestleMania but he could, for whatever reason, have any other match he wanted. Paul Heyman made it clear that all Brock has ever wanted to do is conquer and make history.
"The Deadman" arrived, signed the open contract -- via stabbing Brock's hand with the pen -- and choke slammed Lesnar through a table. So the match is on and while there are obvious issues with it, this was a damn good set up for it.
