Taker isn't a real wrestler at this point. He's a nostalgia figure trotted out once a year for a crowd that wants to enjoy seeing the lights go out and hearing the gong one more time. It helps that the last few years his WM feuds have been in a vacuum with other part-timers. Hell, throw an armored truck of cash at Goldberg so Taker can have another old and meaningless big name to beat this year.


Taker needs to fight Lesnar this year, IMO.

Undertaker has had many matches with Brock Lesnar in the past. Why does he need to again?

Undertaker also had three Wrestlemania matches against Triple H, the first of which they tried desperately to cover up during the time period of the last two.

If they feel there's money to be made in Undertaker vs. Lesnar, they'll do it regardless of how often they've clashed before. And honestly, there will be money to be made there.

      There is no way the streak should ever be broken. Not by CM Punk, nor Chris Jericho, nor John Cena, nor anybody. The streak is sacrosanct.


    Then is doesn't help anyone. Undertaker is a living legend already. 21:0 doesn't do anything for him, whereas 20:1 wouldn't hurt his legacy at all.


But as spf said, beating him won't help anyone either. Say you go with an up-and-comer who you want to push through the roof. Having that guy end the streak will overshadow everything he's done, and likely everything he will do in the future. You can't really go too far past that. As for an established main eventer, then you're wasting the title of Streak Ender on someone who doesn't need it and probably already has their own bona fides.

Ending the streak may not hurt the Undertaker, but it's not going to help anyone and will do more harm than good to whoever does it. And keeping the streak won't hurt the company any either. You just have to book him in situations where it's plausible that the Undertaker could lose. The best case scenario is to have someone take him to the limit and fail in the end, kinda like that Jeff Hardy/Taker ladder match for the title. Hardy lost, but he came out looking like a million Bison Bucks.

Edge/Jericho feud This might do more to elevate Edge then his feud with Angle because it seems like a serious feud as apposed to a feud about hair cutting and T-shirts with "You Suck" on them.
