There has been tons of speculation as to the "Last Ride" for the Undertaker. Who the Dead Man's final opponent will be be has been analyzed and guessed at, and frankly there are plenty of solid options, though Brock Lesnar remains the most likely. Sting, Kane, and several other vets and former foes would also make sense.
That said, what has not really been discussed nearly as much is what form The Undertaker's final match will take. Over the years, Taker has been associated with a number of gimmick matches - special bout types that have in many cases become part of the Dead Man's overall mythos. Some of these have become big enough to have outgrown the association with Taker himself - Hell in a Cell for one - while others have only ever been brought out when the Undertaker is involved.
Given the history of the occasion, it makes sense that WWE will go all-out and add a gimmick to make it feel even more special. But just what gimmick will they employ? Just how will the Dead Man put his opponent (or opponents, lets not discount the possibility of a three way or fatal four-way) through hell?
Let's take a look now at twelve of the most likely, and frankly twisted, evil, and insane possibilities for what type of match The Undertaker will choose for his very last ride.
12. Rest In Peace Match (No DQ)
Remember when the Undertaker's battle at WrestleMania IX against Giant Gonzalez was going to be this incredible new type of gimmick match called a Rest In Peace match? That sounded haunting, totally eerie. It was clearly going to be an epic battle that would be talked about for the ages.
Then it became known that the Rest In Peace match was more or less a No DQ match, and suddenly, this bout became far less cool, especially given that the Undertaker was paired up with an opponent who wasn't that great of a worker (to put it mildly).
So this is an unlikely match type for the Phenom to go out on - however, stranger things have happened. The WWE's creative team could easily dig up the Rest In Peace name, polish it off, add a few wrinkles (one suggestion: pinfalls don't matter, you must put your opponent to sleep), and make this seem like a big deal again.
