Re: If the streak was to ever be broken would you rather it be by...
I read all these comments about how guys such as Ziggler (or Barrett or whomever) simply doesn't have the credibility to end the streak and you're partially right. Orton back in 2005 was one guy that was close to ending the streak and he was about the same level as Ziggler current is at except the fact that Orton was a World Champion the year before. The streak also wasn't as strong back then.
One way that they CAN make it a more level playing field is by playing up how the defense of the streak has been wearing the Undertaker down over the past 4yrs. That coupled with age and injury along with a younger upcoming star that is amped up due to the high stakes and it may create a perfect storm to where The Undertaker just *might* have a small chance at losing.
If I had to pick, rising newcomer. The old wrestling rule of putting someone who needs it over on your way out. Also it doesn't help that two of the biggest stars in wrestling history (Flair and HBK) were both retired by established vets (HBK and Undertaker)
IMO, I think the person who ends the streak (if it happens, I don't think it should) should be a wrestler in between vet and rising newcomer. Randy Orton circa 2005 was perfect. Someone who could win the world title (or has been a world champion before) has been in the main event for a good while but isn't an automatic Hall of Fame type of guy.
Orton did become the youngest world champion ever the year before but other than that, he was brand new to the main event scene and was actually made to look quite weak in his feud with HHH that ended at the Royal Rumble earlier that year.
