If Taker faced Benoit at WM22, he'd only be 19-0 now.
Or maybe it would magically cancel the Benoit tragedy since Chris is already resting in peace by 2007?
But no, they wouldn't deduct the number. Instead of naming opponents, they would just say "Undertaker has defeated twenty other men in the past at Wrestlemania". And at the very best, there would have possibly been a quick shot of Taker tombstoning Benoit then moving on to the other matches. And I think they would also release a DVD with the match included but similar to Satan's Prison, they'd handicap the commentary and mute anything positive about Benoit.
And the SVR 2007 feud is pretty funny. In Taker's words "Your grueling family will have no one but you to blame when the inevitable occurs" and then Benoit looks around in a "Oh shit, did somebody hear that?" way. I've heard that Benoit along with Angle and Henry were the three candidates to face Taker at WM22 but for some dumb reason, Vince went with the worst option.
