Re: We need something big this Wrestlemania, don't we?
CM Punk declares that not only is he going to end the Undertaker's WrestleMania winning streak, he's going to be the man who ends his career once and for all and to prove it, because he's the best in the world, he's willing to put his own career on the line in a career ending match. Undertaker emerges victorious, the streak intact, and CM Punk's in-ring career is over. He later joins the RAW announce team for the next four months as a neutral commentator, gradually shedding his full heel persona.
Meanwhile, John Cena's path to redemption so totally consumes him that he'll do anything to get the win over The Rock... including allying with Vince McMahon to take the title away from him. McMahon, himself, is behind the entire scheme because The Rock is not a long term investment for the WWE... his movie career keeps dividing his time and it's not a good investment to have a champion away for long periods of time. McMahon explains its better for business that John Cena is the WWE champion and accepts John Cena as his corporate champion. Cena tries to justify his actions, but, even his most ardent supporters turn their backs on him. Cena, however, maintains his smug assertion that he's done the right thing. Eventually, the feud between Cena and Punk is reignited, coaxing Punk out of retirement and eventually ending up as face Punk vs. heel Cena for the title at SummerSlam.
