Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads
With an Era having been ended now I'd love to see one of 2 challengers next year for the streak with the streak actually being ended and the rub being given...
1- CM Punk
He would be a better choice than anyone else on the roster in all likelihood just based off of his "Best Wrestler in the World" claims. It also doesn't hurt that he actually can put on a great match with Taker. Why wouldn't Taker want to face someone who not only claims to be the best wrestler in the world but as of late has been booked as such. They could actually build a great story between the two.
It also leads to great future WM angles between Punk and HHH and or Punk and HBK, with either or both playing a heel role to a face Punk and resenting the fact that Punk did something neither could.
2- Daniel Bryan
Bryan is an interesting name to consider. If the WWE spent the year truly building him up as the ultimate underdog, their modern day Rocky Balboa of sorts, this could work. But they would have to truly commit to building and pushing Bryan and do it now. Bryan could be cemented as a top babyface if he actually defeated the odds and ends the streak.
And that could be a great catalyst for a Punk heel turn and fantastic program between he and Bryan coming out of that. It also leads to a fantastic program between Bryan and a heel HBK for WM30, resentful teacher vs babyface student.
