- As of this week, it appears the Undertaker will be working at WrestleMania 29. With his potential opponents limited to strong heels that can get a great match out of him, the current front runner is CM Punk.

Not that I wouldn't mind Punk/Taker, it should be Brock damn it. Hopefully in the end they go that route

Brock Lesnar should face Taker. Triple H better get nowhere near Lesnar at Mania.

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads

if its true that punk vs taker happens then i defiantly see rock vs cena and hhh vs lesnar happening. idk why they would have 2 rematches on the card cuz wm would do a shitty buyrate if that happens.

Proud mark and supporter of Triple H. All of his wins are well deserved and he has earned his spot. Theres nothing you guys can do about it. Haters can suck it.

I'm not so sure about that. Rematches, if done correctly, can produce an even better buyrate than the original match did.

Take Ausin/Rock from Mania 17 for example. Unlike prior to Mania 15, they went all out with the build-up for this one and the end result was an even bigger buyrate than Mania 15.

They also had the rematch at Backlash which made this the third Austin/Rock match, not including their DX PPV match and all of their Raw matches. Still that did not hurt the buyrate for Mania 17, if anything it helped it.

And if they do Cena/Rock 2 for the WWE title, they probably will go all out this time. The build-up and thus the actual match as well as the buyrate may very well be better this time.

It seems however that a lot of people seem to forget that Punk/Taker is not the freshest of all pairings as well. They had a feud in 2009 already that turned out ugly for Punk. This is why I'm not looking forward to this match. I'd be a lot more excited for Cena/Rock 2.

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads

I wouldn't be more excited for Rock/Cena 2 over Taker/Punk because I know the latter will be a better match. But it is true re-matches aren't always the worst things in the world. WrestleMania could be the culmination of a series, the start, or a brand new one time affair. It's all in the booking and execution that people remember and re-watch for years later. That's why I'm not worried about the match result predictability of Taker's Mania matches. At the end of the film I know Batman's going to win but it's about the journey/story/struggle of getting there that is so awesome. At the end of Mania I'm confident Taker will win but it's the thrill he and his opponent puts the viewer through that makes it special.

Make Rock/Cena II 18-20 minutes and it'll deliver in ring wise.

Yes but people don't really want to see HHH vs Lesnar or Rock vs Cena because the out comes are so obvious. Everyone will know going into it that Taker, HHH and Cena will win.

i agree no doubt but i said if 2 rematches were on the card as main events then it would do a shitty buyrate. one would be fine, 2 no

^Can anyone who subscribes to the Observer confirm whether this is true or not? I'm looking specifically at the portion where it states, "current front runner is CM Punk."
