so taker is beaten and buried... flashing lights pyro..... then a new undertaker rises from the coffin in a regenration story line you know that would be a holy shit moment!... imagine whoever he is wrestling face when it happens. with paul bearer waving the urn lol
I would try to give that a chance, but I'm so biased at the same time. I don't know if I, or anyone else, would accept an Undertaker played by anyone other than Calaway. He was just so in tune with his character that it's flawless. They'd have to have Calaway mentor someone or something if a move like that was considered. The way you tell it sounds interesting, though.
I would put him in a 1 vs. 3 handicap hell in a cell wrestlemania streak on the line. Put a shitload of high spots in it and have him take a ton of punishment including multiple finishers from everyone but basically make him unstoppable and have him kick out/no sell everything and get the win.
That would be pretty epic.
Also, after whatever match he'd be in, he should bring back the classic speech. "The spirit of the Undertaker lives within the soul of all mankind. The eternal flame of life that cannot be extinguished. The origin of which cannot be explained. The answer lies in the everlasting spirit."
But then the speech will slightly change to fit his leaving. "Soon all mankind will witness the ascension of The Undertaker. I will finally Rest In Peace."
and then cue lights going out, smoke, yaddayaddayadda, and then purple lights flashing down on an urn like someone else mentioned.
Now THAT in my opinion would be quite epic.
