Undertaker vs Punk?

I'm new to posting on the forum, and whilst I'm sure this will have been discussed various times before, I thought I'd start a thread.

Currently on the active section of the WWE app it mentions tonight Raw is in New Jersey, and the related picture is Taker vs Punk in HIAC.

Considering Wrestlemania xxix will be in New Jersey, and the talk of taker wanting a match for it, do you think with punk likely to be free and no longer champion Punk/Taker would be a good mania match?

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads

They should just announce that the final half of WM matches will be drawn from a hat on the Preshow: CM Punk, HHH, John Cena, Undertaker, Rock, Ryback and Randy Orton. Third drawn match gets Mick Foley as guest ref.

Edit: Was bored so used, Punk vs Cena. Rock vs Ryback. Taker vs Orton. Brock vs. HHH.

Polly fucking Anna...

Who would have benefited the most from 'Breaking the Streak'?

Out of all of The Undertaker's opponents who he defeated at Wrestlemania, which one do you feels career would have benefited the most from having the accolade of "Breaking the Streak"?

Personally i'd go with Orton simply because he was young, still had a lot of years left in his career and could have used it as statement similar to HHH with his "i was the guy that retired mick Foley", plus it would have been a huge push for the youth movement within the company at the time.

But if there's no one in the list people feel deserves to have "Broken the Streak", please feel free to mention any other wrestlers past or present who you feel it would have helped immensely.

Diesel. Then he could claim Undertaker and Goldberg

Orton, it's the only one that would have made any real sense in that lot.

Will mark for Father Ted references.

Re: Who would have benefited the most from 'Breaking the Streak'?

I was going to say Batista but thinking about it for a little bit, he really didn't need to break the streak since he was already the top guy in the company.

I'm gonna say Randy Orton. Orton ending the streak would have made him a huge heel and would have went right along with his Legend Killer character. This was a time where the WWE were really trying to get Orton as a legit main event player after his short World Heavyweight title reign so a win over Taker at WrestleMania 21 could have been Orton's huge moment which would have solidified him as the top guy in 2005 along with John Cena and Batista who went on to bigger and better things after WrestleMania 21.

Randy Orton breaking the streak, John Cena finally winning the WWE title, and Batista winning the World Heavyweight title at WrestleMania 21 would have been a huge deal given the fact that all three came up from OVW right around the same time.

Mark "Ratings" Henry would have been world champ much sooner.

Re: Who would have benefited the most from 'Breaking the Streak'?

Yeah, Orton's pretty much the only one that really could've gotten a lot out of it. Batista and Edge could've gotten a hell of a resume-padding from it, but they were already Smackdown's top face/heel at the time.

Speaking of which, holy fuck, hard to believe it's only been 4 years since Edge vs. Taker. Feels like it was ages ago.

^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Re: Who would have benefited the most from 'Breaking the Streak'?

I believe the biggest hype for breaking the streak really began in 2005 at Wrestlemania 21. Sure it was mentioned sooner, but this is when feuds really centered around the streak. From the list of wrestlers facing Undertaker from 2001 on, only two are still technically active competitors in the WWE, and that may not be true if Henry really doesn't come back. With Edge, Batista, HHH, and Shawn Michaels all retired, having any of them break the streak would be bad in hindsight. Looking at it at that point, HHH and Michaels were already legends, so they didn't need it. Edge and Batista were already top guys and this was a World title feud for both of them, so it would be hard to elevate either guy higher than what they already were, the number 2 face and the number 2 heel.

That leaves Mark Henry and Randy Orton. At the time, Henry was in his silverback gorilla gimmick, which was a far less charismatic and entertaining version of his hall of pain gimmick. He was slow at garnering reactions and felt forced into a feud with Taker. It really should have been Taker vs. Angle instead. Randy Orton was at a point in his career in which he was already a World Champion, but his favor backstage was dipping due to personal issues. A report came out at the time that said Triple H was disappointed in Orton and was tired of hoping he would recover from him immaturity. Beating Taker would have propelled Orton up, but he may have not been ready. Hindsight shows that he truly didn't need it.

So I truly believe no one should have broken the streak from the past matches, but if anyone really would have benefited from it, it would have been Mark Henry. He's the only one from the list that has yet to be a consistent main eventer. He wouldn't have been the right choice, but he would have gained the most.

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads

would have thought this would have blown up after Triple H announcing Undertaker is coming back.

I really hope for Brock v Taker, only because they have/had legit beef (don't know how legit, or if it's still going). Anyone else on the roster would be lame; except for Ricardo.
