A very rare oppertunity for the WWE

Hey guy's this is my first blog, so if it appears a little disjointed or to lack fluency I apologise.
Firstly I have to say this, because this was something that I've been waiting to see for so long, an appearance that gave me such an intense sense of nostalgia that I actually had goose bumps. An appearance that for fifteen minutes temporarily destroyed whatever annoyances I have in relation to the WWE's current product. "FINALLY, The Rock has come back...Home!"
Now onto what i'd like to say.
I've been reading the forums quite frequently, and there is quite a few important things that I believe people have overlooked. The Undertaker requires an opponent for wrestlemania, we all know that. But, people have been looking at this from 'Takers perspective, "he needs an opponent that can equal Shawn Michael’s performance" etc...The Undertaker has been a great asset to the WWE, but his career as a in-ring performer, sadly, cannot last much longer. So now, while extending "the streak" at 'Mania 'Taker can leave more than an unbelievable legacy behind, he can leave behind a legend in the making that he aids in creating.
I ask, when the undertaker stands head to head with this years 'victim' could he be Cena, Punk or The Miz - those the 'E clearly feel are the poster boys of the future -, or should it be someone with the potential to be a legend similar in stature to the great Michaels - John Morrison. The ‘E is currently losing their best and older stars to age, and has invested lightly in the future. So, on The Undertakers return next Monday I believe that they should have him appear in the ring during Morrison’s match and deliver a tombstone pile driver, take the mic, kneel at his head and announce that “at wrestlemania Morrison’s soul can rest...in…peace.
That is my ideal situation, as Morrison has clearly displayed a hefty aptitude for entertainment, and to me, is similar to Michaels style.
Now, onto ‘The people’s Champion! Superstars in the back, Sky+, Tebo, DVR any kind of recording technology that you have at your disposal, use this to record and then study the one of the best promo’s the WWE has offered for seven years. The Rock should be used in such a way that he interacts with all of the “new” talents, so that they learn how to improvise promos to greater effect. As he says – “the Rock has seen it all, he’s done it aaaall” -, and he’s done it better than any of the current crop of talent could prey to do presently.
Forget about The Rock VS Cena, The Rock VS The Undertaker…Think, the WWE has an opportunity tha they have not had in a very long time. They have The Rock – The most electrifying, and charismatic to have ever graced the squared-circle –, they will soon have ‘The Game’ back – one of the best heels in ‘E’s history -, Austin 3:16 on tough enough – the only man that can come close to running parallel with The rocks entertainment-, and The Undertaker – the man that can create a legend in one night, and in one match. I just hope that they use this wisely, and while the oldies entertain the hell outa us, they tech the current crop how to do the same for many more.
Thanks for reading guys.
