That much was clear in the final moments of Bray Wyatt’s encounter with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. Wyatt had rattled The Deadman’s casket, beckoned him to The Grandest Stage of Them All to make an example of The Phenom and prove to the world that Bray was WWE’s New Face of Fear.
Instead, he learned that WrestleMania is still The Undertaker’s yard.
After weeks of antagonizing The Deadman from afar, Bray Wyatt skulked to the ring to meet his enemy with an army of lurching scarecrows following his every step. If the creatures were meant to ward off evil, they failed, because minutes later an unmistakable bell tolled and The Undertaker made his return.
The California sun may not have provided the perfect setting for The Deadman’s entrance, but it was impossible to deny the image of WrestleMania’s most storied gladiator slowly making his way through an ominous fog, his signature black cowboy hat and long leather duster immediately recognizable in the thick clouds.
The crowd of 76,976 didn’t exactly applaud. Instead, they stared on with awe, giving all due reverence to a mythic figure.
Of course, there were questions. Was The Undertaker still the warrior he once was? Could this be his last stand? Or was it the beginning of something else? It’s impossible to know when it comes to someone as enigmatic as The Undertaker. But he was here, and he looked every bit as menacing as The Phenom of days past.
Was Wyatt intimidated? Hell no. Even when The Deadman shot a look at him after first stepping in the ring — as if to say, “You shouldn’t have raised hell, boy.” — Bray barely blinked. He had come here on a mission, and he would not waver until The Undertaker was in the ground and The New Face of Fear had taken his place.
