Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads
I think that Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar is the best option for WrestleMania XXIX. I've always thought that the two of them had good matches together, their Hell in a Cell match from No Mercy 2002 standing out the most. On top of that, the match-up just makes sense. Lesnar went to UFC, became a big star and has proven to be an absolute beast in the ring. From a selling standpoint, him challenging the biggest streak in wrestling is just too good to pass up. Now, add on that, since his return to WWE, Lesnar has broken the arms of both Shawn Michaels and Triple H (on two occasions), the last two men that Undertaker has defeated at 'Mania. The match just makes sense.
Their styles would really mix well, too. Taker is a brawler and he has incorporated a bit of MMA into his style since he last faced Lesnar. I'm not saying that he could go toe-to-toe with Lesnar in an actual MMA match, but in a staged battle at WrestleMania, they could set it up that Taker uses a bit of that against Lesnar, perhaps even make him tap out.
