While a lot of fans worship the Undertaker for being loyal to WWE, Kevin Nash revealed in a recent interview that WCW was close to bringing him on board. Negotiations were going well, and Nash was doing a tremendous job at convincing the front office to give his friends big money. However, Vince McMahon came through at the last minute by offering Mark Calaway a huge guaranteed deal, something that he did not previously do.

WWE fans were quite thrilled yesterday when photos surfaced of Sting and the Undertaker chatting at the airport. Seeing their friendship increases the hope that the two of them will get together for the much anticipated match at Wrestlemania next year. Well, those fans are going to be even more thrilled when they learn that the two legends shared a locker room together at Levi Stadium. They also spent a good amount of time together over the weekend.

Kayfabe is still alive. Michelle McCool attended the hall of fame induction ceremony last night, but she did so without her husband. That is because WWE wanted to keep the Undertaker out of the public eye until Wrestlemania. The feeling is that it would produce a much greater reaction if that is the first moment that fans get a glimpse of the legendary performer. In the past, Mark Callaway has skipped the ceremony for the same reason.

Since he is getting to an advanced age, fans generally grow concern about the shape of the Undertaker around the time of the Royal Rumble each year. That is because they are concerned that he might not be able to perform at Wrestlemania. Those concerns should be alleviated this year because the legendary performer is said to be in great shape. He generally kicks it up a notch when training for a WWE return.

Bad news for those of you that are still holding out hope that we will get to see the Undertaker before his high profile match against Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania. WWE has no plans of doing that right now. The hope by management is that fans will subscribe to their online service to get a glimpse of the legendary performer since his big streak ending loss to Brock Lesnar at the pay per view last year. Giving him away for free is not something planned.

While the majority of fans are hoping that Undertaker gets the win at Wrestlemania, there are those backstage in WWE that feel that it would be best for business if Bray Wyatt were to pick up the much needed victory, one that would give him enough momentum to head back into a main event scene that is set to feature a baby face champion in Roman Reigns. A loss for the Phenom would build anticipation for another return next year.

Back when WWE decided to tap the breaks on the Bray Wyatt push, it was widely reported that management did that because they ran out of opponents for him to work with. However, that did not stop certain fans from believing that he was being punished. The fact that the front office is giving him a prime spot at Wrestlemania in a high profile match against Undertaker, that should be more than enough to eliminate that notion.

Win or lose, Bray Wyatt is going to come out of the match with Undertaker looking like a much bigger star than before. For the last couple of years, WWE has only had the top level guys working with the legendary performer at Wrestlemania. However, management is having trouble deciding on who would win the match. A loss for Wyatt might seem like a step back to some fans because he also lost last year to John Cena in a high profile match.
