The Undertaker. He’s perhaps the biggest name in Wrestlemania history. That is somewhat ironic because the last time we saw him was last friggen year at Wrestlemania. While I have as much nostolgia wrapped up in The Deadman as any 33 year old wrestling fan, if you can only compete once a year? I mean, what’s the point?
We saw evidence of that last year when Triple H was more over than ‘Taker himself. The long periods of time on the shelf are starting to catch up with The Phenom. That said, it doesn’t look like this is going to be the year that Mean Mark stops trying to extend “The Streak.” In that vein, Marc Middleton over at LOP has a newsworthy tidbit:
As noted before, The Undertaker vs. Triple H is indeed one of the matches on the books for WrestleMania 28. The talk is that Taker will return in early 2012 to pick back up on the feud with Triple H.
Hm. To coin a must see phrase: “Really?” I was underwhelmed by last year’s match between these two. While Shawn Michaels most definitely earned a second crack at the ‘Takers streak by putting on the match of the decade, does Hunter? I can think of three other people I’d rather see face The Last Outlaw at ‘Mania. Starting with CM Punk and ending with Chris Jericho. I’d even prefer this re-masked and nefarious looking Kane take on his brother one more time.
The question to answer for any wrestling fan is simple. Who is worthy of the honor of jobbing to The Undertaker one last time? We have to assume that match 20 is where “The Streak” ends. The Deadman is going over in Miami come hell or high-water. Is HHH the one that should be there when it all comes to an end?
