WWE has booked what is arguably the biggest match for WrestleMania 33.

It's a huge showdown between Roman Reigns and The Undertaker. A lot of eyes are on this match as there have been hints it could be the last time we see The Undertaker compete inside a wrestling ring.

WWE made the announcement earlier today with the two men squaring off on April 2nd, 2017 at WrestleMania 33.

The Undertaker was undefeated at WrestleMania for over two decades until his winning streak ended at WrestleMania XXX at the hands of Brock Lesnar.

Roman Reigns is wanting to become only the second man to ever beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.

Their feud initially started at this year's Royal Rumble event when Reigns eliminated The Undertaker. The fuel to their feud got hotter last week when The Undertaker delivered a chokeslam to Reigns on Raw.

From a backstage standpoint, this match was originally going to be John Cena vs. The Undertaker, but Vince McMahon changed his mind.

McMahon wanted to invest in the future so he chose his golden boy Roman Reigns to get the rub instead.

McMahon did this since Cena is taking time off after WrestleMania 33 to film a few movies again. Cena was recently cast in Daddy's Home 2 just the other day.

Fans are kind of scared seeing this match since it might be The Undertaker's last match ever. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but The Undertaker will be 52 years old and he isn't getting any younger.

Not to mention fans don't want to see Roman Reigns win the match, although it's likely he'll get the victory. It's professional wrestling tradition for wrestlers to lose in their last match to pass the torch to the future stars.
