Re: Undertaker vs. Psycho Sid - Wrestlemania 13

Thought it was pretty good, but Bret Harts interference kinda got annoying. Still solid though.

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads

For as long as he plans to wrestle, Undertaker won't miss a Mania, and Vince will give him the wedge to ensure that. Can't see him facing anyone but Lesnar next year - as someone said in the summerslam threads, HBK being involved in the Lesnar V HHH feud is a way of bringing Undertaker in.

Yeah, given I'm an Undertaker fan but when I was young and I was watching the match, it really got me involved and emotional and hoping The Undertaker to win the title but the only thing I didn't like was the finish because I wanted Undertaker to win it cleanly but anywho, I do find the match entertaining and this is the first time I have seen Undertaker being tombstoned which was unlikely at the time. I have watched it back again now on the 20 - 0 DVD and still have the emotion for it... it may not be the ALL-TIME CLASSIC but it was one the matches that made an impact on me, personally. I don't get the hate and dislike about it and I still rate it about *** stars or so because the two did deliver a one heck of a good contest and Sid was dominating which made The Undertake feel like the underdog, And I also find a bit underrated at main event matches concerned.

So, does anyone here feel the love to the match that I do?
I did enjoy the match. It was a decent Wrestlemania main event. Loved seeing Undertaker is his old look again that night

How can they make it seem like The Streak is in jepody again?

To me they've painted themselves into a corner after WM27. I can't remember exactly what he endured but he kicked out of what? 3 Pedigees and took 20 chair shots before finally being tombstoned?

If he can take all that and still win then how can he lose and make it seem believeable? If he manages to lose and it takes less than what he took at WM27 \ WM28 then it's going to be anti climatic because no one is going to expect it and it's going to be a big "meh is that it, 20 years for that..." moment.

If it takes more than WM27 \ WM28 to beat him then again they've painted themselves into a corner because once he's kicked out of 3 or 4 finishers at 3 or 4 WM's in a row then it starts to become stupid and impossible to suspend your disbelief.

So how do people actually see Taker losing and how can they make it believeable when he does lose?

And how can they build up a match before hand to make it seem like he might have a chance in losing.

The only way I can think of it is making it appear in non kayfabe they have a legit reason for wanting it to end. Either turning Cena heel before hand will give you the "OMG no way Cena is going to lose his first match as a heel" or something stupid like dirtsheets predicting Taker is going to lose because he was doing drugs or something dumb behind the scenes.

What people think?

Kayfabewise 4 Finishing moves would put him away I think. After he he's been beaten down throughout the match and can barely cling to life. As well as that, something I noticed from the last two Wrestlmanias. Triple H failed to use the sledgehammer on Undertaker in both matches, so maybe if someone did use it on him they could use it as a way to beat the Undertaker.

Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time - The Undertaker, The Rock, Chris Jericho and Edge

Have Brock break Michelle McTaker's arm?

If Cena faces Rock again and wins then goes after the streak yes. Also Cena has said multiple times that he would like to end the streak.

1) John Cena
2) Lesnar... Only if he beats HHH, he can play off the fact that he also beat HHH, and he's not the conventional pro wrestler.

Re: How can they make it seem like The Streak is in jepody again?

The WWE would need to keep telling the story that Undertaker's body is breaking down, and make people believe that his opponent could capitalize on this weakness. They can go the easy route and throw Rock and Cena as his opponent, but everyone knows that both Cena and Rock wouldnt benefit from the win as much as a young talent. For me to believe that someone could beat Taker, it would have to be a guy like Ryback, someone on the rise that would legitimately benefit huge from the win. I don't want to see Ryback defeat Taker, but it's someone with his type of progression that could eventually reach a level where Taker "passes the torch". If the WWE doesn't sell me on the threat, and the opponent isnt a guy that has potential to be the backbone of the WWE for years to come, I just don't see Taker ever losing at Wrestlemania. Taker's streak is what defines him, but I do think that he loves the business enough to give that all up if it would "make" someone, though that someone would have to be something special.
