According to latest reports, 3 names have been shortlisted as possible opponents for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 – John Cena, Braun Strowman, & Seth Rollins.
Seth Rollins is the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion and the #1 heel of WWE at the moment. Braun Strowman is a monster heel but is super green at the moment. John Cena is the #1 babyface of WWE for more than 10 years now. The idea behind WWE possibly booking Undertaker vs. Cena at WrestleMania is that these two have never had a match at big stage after Cena became the face of the company back in 2005.
As we all know, WWE announced during the Night of Champions 2015 broadcast that Brock Lesnar & The Undertaker will battle each other one last night at next month’s Hell in a Cell PPV in a match they have been before, Hell in a Cell. A few weeks back, the plan was for Lesnar & Taker to clash in a final bout at WrestleMania 32 next year. However, with Taker most probably losing in this rubber match, WWE would never think about booking Undertaker to lose at a WrestleMania event ever again, so they scrapped that WrestleMania match.
