The WWE Universe has been split on The Undertaker's streak ever since he lost it to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, over a year ago.
Taker - Lesnar Feud
Undertaker is back now to reap his revenge on Lesnar at SummerSlam, and the two are set for an epic encounter that is the main event ahead of the title vs title match between Seth Rollins and John Cena.
Taker vs Lesnar has been amazing in the past few weeks. But it could have been so much better, by making it be John Cena who broke the streak.

Cena Conquering The Streak
Don't hate me just yet. Yes this would be another case of 'LOL Cena Wins' but it would be so much more than that. It would be the start of the John Cena heel turn. Now I've got your attention.
It was a wrong decision to let 'Taker lose his streak when it wasn't even his last match in the company, but that is what Vince McMahon went with. But take a trip with me to this hypothetical universe.
This wouldn't be a short term decision, rather a long term plan that was always in the top drawer ready to be pulled out at any time. When the time is right for the WWE, you start the John Cena heel turn and you do it by him cheating to win against Undertaker.
Cena Cheats To Win
Here's the scenario: You set the match up in a usual way, John Cena wants the chance to beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania in a clean match, 'Taker agrees after some persuading and the stage is set. Cena is being dominated by 'Taker, barely kicking out of a Tombstone Piledriver and slowly getting to his feet after a pulsating encounter where both men are tired, but Taker has the upper hand.
Cena hits 'Taker into the ref, who goes down. Cena spots a chair/sledgehammer/brass knuckles - looks at it and then picks it up - before clocking Taker full in the face, then hitting him a few more times to make sure he's knocked out.
Cena wakens the ref, covers Taker just with his foot and gets the 1-2-3. Then he turns to the crowd, smirks, and walks out to a chorus of boos and vitriol.
The Cena heel era begins and by having him beat The Undertaker's streak to do it, not even the smarkiest of fans could cheer for him. It's the perfect Cena heel turn. Unfortunately, it can never come to be.
