It’s an unbelievable theory, but could the most hated man in the WWE be the new Dead Man
WILL ROMAN Reigns become the new Undertaker after the Dead Man’s retirement?
It’s an unbelievable theory, but hear me out, there’s plenty of reasons why he could and would be an incredible replacement to the legendary character.
Reigns, the most-hated man in the WWE, retired Mark Calaway at WrestleMania 33 after beating him in the main event.
It’s been said numerous times that there will ALWAYS be an Undertaker, suggesting someone will have to take over his mantle.
And Reigns would be the perfect person to take over… and here are reasons why he is all set to become the Dead Man and how it will all come about.
STROWMAN ATTACK AND ‘DEATH’
On Monday Night Raw, Reigns was brutally attacked by Braun Strowman backstage, smashing him around like a rag doll into walls.
The Big Dog was then put onto a stretcher by medics… before being thrown off the loading ramp and then having the ambulance he was in TIPPED OVER.
He suffered internal injuries and cracked ribs in the attack keeping him out of action, and who is to say he won’t ‘die’ in hospital?

HIS COMEBACK AND REVEAL AS UNDERTAKER
Imagine this, it’s revealed that Reigns has ‘died’ after the attack and the lights go off on Monday Night Raw in a few weeks time.
Nobody knows what’s going on, then Taker’s music starts to play, the crowd is shocked and everyone goes crazy.
Lightning strikes, and a light goes onto a figure, wearing the famous hat, cloak and gloves, they lift their head. It’s Roman Reigns. He’s the Undertaker.
WHY IT ALL MAKES SENSE
Reigns is HATED, he’s not loved by the fans, but the WWE are desperate for him to be a star, what better way than by making him the Undertaker?
He’s also not the best on the microphone, neither was the Dead Man, so he wouldn’t have to talk too much.
And he’s not the flashiest of wrestlers, again, neither was Calaway, they have similar styles and moves which he could take on.
