Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads
This 'Mania, Undertaker's streak is a nuisance.
The streak means Undertaker has to win, no matter what. And that's the problem; he shouldn't win.
They couldn't do a streak vs streak, Punk (c) vs Undertaker match. Because that would mean Undertaker would become champion, something he cannot do anymore.
They can't do Lesnar vs Undertaker because Lesnar, their biggest draw besides Rock, signed a 2 year extension. They can't have Lesnar looking bad and losing to part-timers like Undertaker.
They can't do Cena vs Undertaker because Cena is the #1 full-time wrestler whom they cannot have as a victim of the streak,
They can't do Rock vs Undertaker because Rock is the #1 money-maker.
If only this streak wasn't there. We would see Undertaker put over Lesnar at 'Mania, or Punk at 'Mania, or Cena at 'Mania, or Rock at 'Mania.
But unfortunately, the streak means he can't put over anyone. He has to win when he shouldn't.
