WWE: Undertaker Won't Make Wrestlemania After Brock Lesnar Beatdown, Reckons Paul Heyman
Brock Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman has written off The Undertaker's chances of taking part in next year's Wrestlemania.
The Dead Man and The Beast battle once again this weekend at SummerSlam in a bout hyped as the biggest rematch in WWE history - and Heyman reckons 'Taker will be lucky to step between the ropes again once the main event is in the books.
"I said on TV this is the match that’s too big for Wrestlemania, and I meant it. I really, really meant it," Heyman said on FOX Sports podcast The Buzz with Jimmy Traina.
"There is no description to point out how big this match truly is because no-one ever thought they’d ever see a return match between Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker.
"The unfortunate part about this is, I don’t know how many times you’re going to get to see the Undertaker after this match because he’s going to get his a** kicked again.
"He’s going to get beat up and he’s going to get beat."
Reflecting on the after effects of last year's Wrestlemania loss to Brock - which saw an injured Undertaker retreat from the ring for a year - Heyman indicated the WWE veteran would struggle to appear at the annual spectacular next April in Texas.
"He didn’t just lose to Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar delivered such a beating to the Undertaker that he collapsed backstage to a point where Vince McMahon left Wrestlemania during the main event to go to the hospital with Undertaker - who stayed in that hospital and needed a full year before he was seen in public again. A full year.
"So if the Undertaker takes the same beating at SummerSlam, what makes you think he’s going to be at the AT&T Stadium?"
