Breaking The Streak - CM Punk vs. Undertaker?

Rating: 3 votes, 2.33 average.
I used to think that the Streak should never be broken. It's that one untouchable legacy in the WWE today... or at least it was.

CM Punk is poised for a push of epic proportions. This current angle is one of the best things that I've ever seen on a TV screen and clearly a lot of people agree. They can't even keep his merchandise in stock. If they carry out this angle properly, CM Punk will carry his own legacy. He walked out with the title, which indirectly retired Vince McMahon. HE RETIRED VINCE and now he's back as the true champion of the WWE. There's a lot of noise up on this website about "we want CM Punk vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania XXVIII."

Everybody seems to want to get creative and write up their little fanfics about how the buildup will go. Problem is, none of that shit is creative. They basically all rehashed the HBK and HHH storylines. "WHO'S THE BEST? EPIC!!!" And then 'Taker wins. yawwwwwwwwwwwwn. I literally just yawned while typing here. It's bad, baby.

When CM Punk was wearing Pepsi gym shorts and cussing out fat bitches in IWA, a lot of people probably didn't figure him for a future player in the WWE. But he did it. Then at Money In The Bank he walked out with the strap. On the night that he first announced he would do it, before "The Infamous Rant" and everything that followed, who thought they were gonna really let him do that? But he fucking did it. NOBODY thinks he can beat 'Taker at Wrestlemania, but he can do it, and maybe should do it.

After all, you're supposed to retire on your back and Taker looks old as shit, so are we supposed to be satisfied with him beating our man CM Punk when he's on a meteoric rise? He's on top of his game. He took the title from John Cena AND he took it away from Vinnie Mac. He put a 23 year old song on the iTunes top 200. He even elevated John Cena's game. Did anybody notice that his match with Rey was really good? Full blog on that later. A loss for Punk at Mania would be fucking insane. One of the stupidest things they could do is to have CM Punk become just another name on any list, no matter how legendary.

So now whether or not Punk should even face Taker comes into question. Do you really want to see the Undertaker lose at Wrestlemania? Cause if he's facing CM Punk, he has to. You DO NOT take this hot and unique an angle and waste it by throwing the guy into a story that's been used every year and has essentially been the same every year for a long time and then have him job. That doesn't make a lick of sense.

What the WWE is shorthanded on right now more than anything else, it's future legends. All-time greats. You knew in their day that Rock, Austin, Taker, Kane, Foley, HBK, HHH, Ric Flair, Steamboat, Piper, Sting, Hogan, Macho Man R.I.P. and God bless, etc. were going to go down in history. Who are the living legends in the WWE right now? HHH? He's a suit now. John Cena? Half the fan base isn't happy about that. Rey Mysterio? No doubt about it, but personality-wise he's a garden variety babyface. Jericho keeps saying he'll be back and Orton is cementing his legacy right now, and that's about it because there's still time to drop the ball on the Miz and pretty much anybody else on the roster. CM Punk is a legend right now. He's going to go down in history as one of the best ever and we already know it. He cannot job at Mania, and if anyone deserves to break that Streak, it's him.

Of course there's no evidence that the match is even being considered by WWE. It's just some speculation that I thought it'd be interesting for me to address, and there are many, many other things that Punk could do at Mania so that they wouldn't even have to confront the issue. However the more I think about it the more I really want to see it happen.

Punk draws a lot of comparisons to Austin, but what about Taker? He's got the tats, the cult, the blatant disregard for authority and the God complex. There's your fucking story, guys. Not "the Streak and professional admiration and fucking blach blach blaccch." Howbout an actual feud?! There are a million possibilities: I'm not like you, I'm better than you ever were, whatever. Any other personal issue they can think of, you know, whatever. And what's nice is that Punk has the skills to put together a phenomenal build (no pun intended) with little to no ring-time for Taker. I also felt that the feud they had over the WHC could've been done better and I'd like to see take two.

Time to wrap this shit up. CM Punk is the best wrestler in the world. If Undertaker loses to him at Mania in one of the most hotly anticipated and brilliantly worked matches you've ever seen, is it going to hurt his legacy? Hell no. As far as I'm concerned it would be almost as good for the Undertaker as it would for Punk. There are so many old guys in the wrestling world who just won't stop, even though they really should. Do you want Undertaker to be That Guy? Do you want him to keep coming out another year older, grayer, more broken, to wrestle a guy 25 years younger than him AND WIN, then get stretchered away to have surgery? I don't want to see that shit. I said CM Punk is a legend, and it's true. To anyone who knows anything the man is a legend. But the next step is to make it fucking undeniable. Yeah, he beat Vince. But people have done that before. Nobody beats the Undertaker. But somebody must.

    I think Undertaker has all but retired. I mean since he's shaved all his hair off Stone Cold style, I just don't see him returning at all. He wouldn't be the same recognisable phenom anymore

    Love the blog

    Call me a pessimist but I cant help get the feeling that Cena will bury Punk at Summerslam and make one of the greatest stories of recent time in WWE all for nothing. If that happens I will stop watching!

    Heck why does the streak even have to end, does somebody have to beat it. Isn't it enough that Taker puts on the match of the year every year, cant he just be undefeated until he retires. Which is most likely soon.

    Definitely holding to my argument here. People think that you can have your one big legendary angle and now all of a sudden you're a made man, and especially in Punk's case. The WWE can always fuck up dude, so until Punk has been a top tier main eventer for a solid year he still does need something, and he needs a match at Mania. Yeah, he'll go down in the history books, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be a main eventer in 2013. Again, the WWE can always fuck up.
    And I already addressed the reason why someone should break the streak: that's how the fucking business works, dude. You retire on your back.

Everybody has the respect not to beat Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Losing to Undertaker will not hurt Punks career. If you said someone like Del Rio or the Miz I would agree.
    What the fuck are you talking about? Del Rio or Miz what? Everybody has the respect for Undertaker not to beat him at Mania? Dude that's not their fucking decision. That should be obvious. It's not about that anyway. What's more important is that Undertaker has the respect for the business to lose the streak if it comes to that. I already said this in the original post: when you retire, you fucking lose your last match. The way the business works is as guys get older and build legacies, they use the legacy to build the next generation. This is how the business stays afloat. Nothing in history and probably nothing ever again would be as much of a put-over as letting somebody beat the streak. Nothing. And you're just going to waste that because you have this sentimentality towards Undertaker. Bullshit.

    Also, I want to see CM Punk defend the WWE title (which I'd have him win back at the Royal Rumble or Elimination Chamber PPV) against Chris Jericho (who I'd have return to win the RR).

    But that's just me.
    I still like my stance but at least YOU have smart reasons for disagreeing with me.

If the streak should end, it should be ended by a young dude that gets pushed to superstardom, or by Kane, who jobbed so many times to Taker it would be a freakin show of class to let him end it (and possibly retire too?).

    To add: CM Punk vs. Stone Cold would blow the roof off. It would be ten times bigger then Punk vs Undertaker.
    You're a fucking idiot. As soon as you suggested that Kane has a chance to do it your credibility went right down the shitter. You don't use something huge like this to put over someone who's been over as fuck since day one and you certainly don't use it to put over someone who's also about to fucking retire.

    PS all of you fanfiction fuckers, get the fuck out of here. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't give a fuck about your angles. This would happen, then this would happen, then this would happen... I DON'T GIVE A FUCK. Smart people don't talk like that. Smart people talk about the how and why. So let me also say that the people I'm currently arguing with, even if I call them names, are valuable members here because they are ANALYZING.
