There was none more disappointed as me to finally hear the confirmed Undertaker match for Wrestlemania against Triple H. I was convinced that Shawn MIchaels would return for a one-off match and face Undertaker for the third time and finally defeat him, thus retiring both stars. Let's face it, Undi is close to the end of his career. His got nothing left to do and his body can not withstand any more punishment.
There are reasons for this belief. Firstly, storyline wise it makes sense. Michaels has not had the retribution that is required in this story. I respect that he has stayed away but is this really the end of his career? No big deal was made really. Maybe that is the way it is to be these days. After all, far too many have screwed around returning to matches after a huge retirement send off ie Ric Flair.
I went out on a limb over this Michaels returning for the third time thing, but I am not going to let it go yet. The reason being, WWE have not let it go yet. Michaels is in a video on WWE.com right now talking about how part of him would be upset if H won due to the fact that HBK "couldn't get the job done". What does all this mean if it is not for storyline?
I'm hoping that there is a larger plan and that WWE really have got this one together for a huge long term storyline. HBK is firmly still in the picture as far as WWE goes and from a storyline point of view his mind is still on the Undertaker and ending the streak (as far as what WWE are showing).
I think this story may come full circle. I think Taker will retire Triple H at Mania and Michaels will return next year for the big third match. In my opinion, Triple H isn't the man for the job of ending the infamous streak, surely? I could perhaps accept the likes of Jericho ending it. I would however vomit all over myself if I was to consider for one moment that Kane could be the one. Preposterous.
HBK vs Taker (WM28).
