Re: If the streak was to ever be broken would you rather it be by...
I'm one of the few people that just isn't all that impressed by "The Streak". It seems like the WWE just fell into. One day someone realized: "Hey! 'Taker hasn't lost at WM yet. Let's promote the hell out of it like it was planned all along!"
I see the Streak as nothing more than a catalyst to launch a next generation superstar. If Undertaker retires 'undefeated' it will just be a wasted opportunity. Although, the great problem as already addressed in the thread, is that there really is no one currently in the WWE's possession that would benefit/deserve it.
WWE is in dire need of some huge young new talent (The modern era guys are nearing retirement age, and they haven't built much of a foundation to fall back on. Taking on The Rock and Lesnar temporarily to promote guys that are already hugely over (Punk, Cena, & HHH) and nearing retirement, doesn't help either. It's extremely reminiscent of WCW before the fall. Instead of building the future, they're cashing-in on the past.
Would I like to see someone like Sting come in for the quintessential final bout of the glory years of professional wrestling (WWF vs WCW, the TRUE end of an era)? Sure. Should he win? Doesn't really matter at his age.
