Looking At The Beast vs. The Streak: WWE WrestleMania XXX



undertaker-lesnar

One of the main selling points and one of the highlights of Wrestlemania the past few years has been The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at the event. The matches have become tough to follow because there are over two decades of history behind the streak and it’s something that won’t be done again. The performances have delivered and there’s anticipation for who will be the next opponent to challenge the streak. This year Brock Lesnar will challenge The Undertaker, but will the match live up to the hype?

The pivotal point of any match included in the streak is to put the streak in some type of jeopardy and there has to be some point when the audience believes that there’s a legitimate chance that the streak might end. If there’s not some believability that The Undertaker could lose, there’s not really anything to build the match around and there has actually been a lack of built up to the match on Raw. The segment on Raw this past week was critical because it finally put The Undertaker in jeopardy and made Lesnar look strong for the feud. There has only been a few weeks of build up and Lesnar was attacked during most of the segments on Raw so The Undertaker being attacked was needed to sell the possibility that the streak could end.

In reality, Brock Lesnar is getting paid major money to be an enhancement talent and as I’ve said before, that’s what Lesnar should be used for, considering he’s there for the money and putting talents over help the WWE get the most for their investment. Don’t get me wrong, Lesnar isn’t a jobber and delivers great matches, but considering his run the past few years, how many fans actually believe it’s possible that he will defeat The Undertaker? It depends on the match and if they can create some doubt about the streak, but it seems like it will be more difficult to get believability for it because Lesnar has done the job for almost every major PPV match during his most recent run in WWE. That being said, the streak probably won’t and shouldn’t end. As great as the matches that put the streak in jeopardy are, the majority of the fans don’t want to see the streak end and there would probably be a major backlash if the streak was actually ended.

The other aspect of the streak is if the matches can still deliver and it seems as though The Undertaker has showed his age during his appearances on Raw. There are some fans that think The Undertaker should retire, but I think he should retire when he decides to hang up the boots. He has earned the right to retire on his terms and he has earned the praise in the wrestling business as a leader that always contributes to the business. As far as the criticism that The Undertaker only appears a few times a year, he doesn’t have anything left to prove and it actually makes it more of a special appearance that he rarely wrestles for major events. Basically, until the matches don’t live up to the hype, there’s no reason for The Undertaker to retire. I doubt The Undertaker vs. Lesnar will get the fans to believe the streak might end at Wrestlemania, but it should be a good match because as mentioned, the streak has been one of the highlights of the show. It should be extremely interesting to see if String debuts on the Raw and if there’s The Undertaker vs. Sting at Wrestlemania.

    EXACTLY, I have the same thinking, I think that the Steak won’t end, and will never be broken, I think that no one has the right to break the streak, if HBK couldn’t do it, then nobody has the right to do it, I just hope to see Taker wrestling Sting at WM 31 and Cena at WM 32 before retiring!
