The Undertaker: Why his WrestleMania streak must end

Published 1 Comments

On March 24, 1991, The Undertaker began the greatest streak in WWE history. 

Taker, taking part in his first WrestleMania, defeated Jimmy Snuka in under five minutes and was off to a winning start in wrestling's greatest annual event. 

Incredibly, 22-years later, The Dead Man has won every match that he has participated in at the grandest stage of them all. 

On his way to legendary status, he's defeated the likes of Diesel, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and his on-screen brother Kane. 

His most recent victim was CM Punk at WrestleMania 29 as he made it 21 wins in a row. 

However, at the age of 48 and the fact that he can't go on forever, will The Undertaker ever be defeated at WrestleMania?

WWE writers must eventually sign him out at a WrestleMania event, however what direction should they head in when finishing his career?

They could do one of two things:

The Undertaker could be written out at WrestleMania with one last win and the unbeaten streak in tact, or they could chose a wrestler to end the incredible record. 

I believe they should do the latter. Why? Because, if Taker retired with the streak in tact, then, yes, he would retire a legend, however even if he was beaten, he would still retire a legend. 

Takers iconic status will forever live in the WWE and when eventually finishing his career, writers should take the opportunity to turn a current star into a legend. 

Whoever is to end the streak would go from strength-to-strength in the wrestling industry and in turn would become an icon themselves.

In addition, a WrestleMania main-event that sees Taker retire and lose the streak could go down as one of the greatest matches of all-time. 

It could be argued that The Dead Man deserves to bow out on one final win, but for the good of the WWE and their future, ending the streak would be the right thing to do.

Whatever the writers decide, The Undertaker will always be remembered a WWE great.
