Crazy Thought of the Day: Undertaker picks Daniel Bryan for WrestleMania 29 opponent

Here's a crazy thought: Undertaker vs. Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 29. Hear me out on how to book this one.

It's been a while since my last "Crazy Thought of the Day," but when pondering the upcoming "Road to WrestleMania," something hit me.

Here's my crazy idea, aided by a couple of you Cagesiders discussing the possibility of this in the comments recently.

A big brawl breaks out in the ring involving almost all of the major characters on WWE television. It's absolute pandemonium, perhaps a preview of the Royal Rumble, or something else like The Shield wreaking havoc. Whatever it is doesn't matter, there just needs to be a big brawl in the ring with all the major players involved in it.

Then, the GONG goes off as the lights go out.

Undertaker walks to the ring and all the action stops as everyone looks to him to wonder what he's doing here and what's going to happen. "The Deadman" slowly climbs inside the ring, turning his head from side to side to take in everyone who is there.

Then he looks up at the WrestleMania banner that WWE hangs every year, signifying he is about to choose his opponent for that April 7, 2013, night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The feeling intensifies. This is a special moment and everyone knows it. Who will 'Taker choose?

After a very tense few moments with Undertaker slowly turning his head and glossing over each guy, he quickly jerks his head towards one man, steps to him, and does the throat slash while he shows his opponent the whites of his eyes.

That opponent is Daniel Bryan.

Bryan, with a look of incredulousness mixed with terror, looks from side to side at everyone else in the ring, who are now looking back at him. He looks at them with pleading eyes, as though he wants their help. When he realizes he won't find any, he quietly recites his catchphrase.


He turns to look at the fans, who mock him with their yes chants.


He turns again to look at his fellow wrestlers, none of them offering any support.


He looks to his tag team partner Kane, who knows all too well what it's like to face Undertaker at WrestleMania. The best he can muster is to shake his head and look away.


Finally, Bryan's gaze returns to Undertaker, who flashes a smile before turning away and exiting the arena.

The camera zooms in on a still in shock Bryan, who can hardly find his voice anymore because his mouth is so dry.


Fade to black.
