I respect Taker but I'm still disappointed to this day about the outcome of that main event.
For business reasons, the streak is just great. The Undertaker match is a main event each yr, which means bigger paychecks for every wrestler who performs at Mania.
That being said, I was at Mania 24 in Orlando, and I was completely going for Edge. I started watching in 2000 and though I liked the Hardys and Dudleys more than Edge and Christian, it was so cool to see how far Edge had come, and how great of a performer he was. When Undertaker won I was just pissed. Big Edge fan.
