They hype a Undertaker return and he gets beat up by The Shield/CM Punk?
CM Punk does something that makes The Undertaker mad?
Just seemed like a rushed match with limited build.
Well, there's 7 weeks between EC and WM so there's enough time to build the feud + logic/consistency has never been their strong suit. If they've decided on Punk/Taker, then its going to happen regardless of whether it feels rushed or not.
One direction I think they could've gone with is for Punk to come out, talk about how it was an injustice the way his reign ended and brag about his 434 (or whatever it was) day streak being the most impressive streak in history. He's already put his streak over some of the longer ones in his earlier promos by mentioning how they didn't wrestle as much as he did, how he's made the title more prestigious etc and that way, you at least have some logic and basic layout for a feud with Taker.
But now, they are continuing the feud with Rock all the way till EC and we'll have to see how it goes. Still think Punk/Taker is likely but there's a very small chance of Rock/Cena/Punk can go down with the type of promo Cena cut putting both men over.
