The Royal Rumble pay-per-view has not even aired yet, but much of the Internet chatter in the professional wrestling world has focused on WrestleMania 30 and the potential matches at the big event. In that vein, we've got numerous reports on the Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Triple H and more, so let's get right to it:
- The Undertaker has reportedly requested to work with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30, but there is no word yet if backstage officials have actually discussed this idea yet. Furthermore, there is reportedly growing concern within WWE that could prevent the often-discussed Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match from taking place. One concern is that Lesnar's physical style would not complement that banged-up Undertaker's, which is why Sheamus was initially considered as Taker's opponent. Another factor is that Taker has worked with his opponents in great detail and practiced matches with them before Mania in the last few years, and some are concerned that Lesnar would not want to put that much time into preparing the match.

- The WWE creative staff is reportedly discussing Hulk Hogan, John Cena and Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt Family at WrestleMania 30. Supposedly, the backstage feeling within WWE is that Hogan would not pass the required physical to participate in a match, but he could pass one for a six-man tag team match where his actually physical involvement in the match would be extremely limited.

- The discussed match between CM Punk and Triple H at WrestleMania 30 is now reportedly a lock, and WWE currently plans to run another angle similar to the "Summer of Punk" in 2011 that could build to a match between Punk and Batista at SummerSlam. (Wrestlezone.com)
