Is The Undertaker a Heel Now? Wait...What?

Posted by Ben Guest Friday, August 7, 2015
So before I get started, yes, I do know what I'm implying and yes, I do feel like a terrible human being. However, I do think that there is a small chance that The Undertaker could be a heel. Wow...did not think I would be writing this a few weeks ago. Okay, so now you'll want some proof of my insane claim and sadly, there is plenty of proof.

He ruined the end of Battleground

Okay, so this may not seem like a huge deal, but it's something that a babyface should never do. The last time the ending of a pay-per-view was interrupted was WrestleMania 31, where Seth Rollins (the biggest heel on the roster) interrupted Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. To some fans, Undertaker actually ruined the end of Battleground in general, as it cut the event short 15 minutes early and didn't seem like it had a true ending at all. Even though I was delighted that Undertaker showed up, as he can pretty much show up anywhere at any time and make any show better, I can see how some can think this way.

He attacked Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is the biggest and most over babyface on the roster right now, so to not only attack him, but to deny him the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is perhaps one of the biggest heel moves we've seen since...well, Seth Rollins (once again, the biggest heel on the roster) did exactly the same thing at WrestleMania. That's not to mention the fact that he attacked Lesnar by kicking him in one of the more sensitive areas of the male body. How much more of a heel move is there?

He helped Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins (for the third time now, the biggest heel on the roster) was about to lose his championship and then out comes the Undertaker to attack Brock Lesnar and help Rollins retain. I mean, seriously, if anyone else had done this, they would be a heel. Talking of Rollins, what actually happened to him and the referee? Anyone? Nope, me neither. Now, this also means that The Undertaker helped The Authority—one of the biggest heel groups in WWE history—so does that mean Undertaker is aligning himself with them? If so, that's a heel turn. Maybe he's avenging his brother Kane's broken ankle—you know... Kane, the heel member of the authority (the heel group) who got his ankle broken setting up an ambush on Brock Lesnar (the babyface who has only been attacked by heels since WrestleMania). However, I will add at this point that if the Brothers of Destruction are coming back, I'm on board no matter what. The tag division is in the dumps right now, after all.

He had no reason to attack Brock Lesnar

We all know that the reason he attacked Lesnar was because he lost at WrestleMania 30. But hold on, Undertaker lost that match clean. As much as I hate to admit it, Brock Lesnar beat The Undertaker (at WrestleMania) fair and square. Undertaker can have no complaints. Undertaker tried to redeem himself by saying the attack was because of how much Paul Heyman was bragging about the win, and sure, Heyman hasn't shut up about being "the one behind the one in 21-1," but why would he? Surely it's a compliment to Taker for Heyman to be bragging about it for over a year. I mean, Lesnar was WWE World Heavyweight champion and that was still his biggest achievement, so in reality, Undertaker is being a little bit petty.

Hold on a minute, Undertaker isn't a heel

Despite all of the evidence I've just given, I know that almost everyone will still argue that Undertaker isn't a heel. How do I know this? Because it's impossible to boo The Undertaker! Who is really going to boo the Undertaker? The Undertaker simply can't be a heel, as that would be like Hulk Ho... oh wait, nevermind. But seriously, if WWE can turn Undertaker into a heel at this point of his career, it will be their biggest achievement ever, but if they try and fail (which, if they are trying, they are failing) then shame on you, Vince. The only way an Undertaker heel turn may be successful is if Taker himself is asking to end his career as a heel, in which case maybe we owe him some boos. If one of the biggest legends in the industry wants us to boo him, maybe we should.

So, what do you guys think? Is The Undertaker turning heel or was this just a one-time deal? Would you boo The Undertaker if he wanted a heel turn? What do you think the rest of Undertaker's career has in store for us? Let us know in the comments below, and please don't abuse me for suggesting the Undertaker might be a heel because, I hate myself already for suggesting it.
