GiveMeSport brings you all of the days biggest headlines from the WWE...
Our lead story today concerns former WWE World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk, who it has been revealed was very close to becoming the man who could have broken The Undertaker's unbeaten streak at WrestleMania 29.
In other news, the WWE mourned the sad passing of wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes, while Tyson Kidd had some famous visitors after his horrible injury suffered against Samoa Joe.
Punking the Streak
Our main story today is Paul Heyman's revelation that it so could have been CM Punk to break the streak of The Undertaker.
Heyman spoke to Chael Sonnen on You're Welcome this week, and the greatest talker in the WWE revealed that if he had his way, Punk would have been the man to conquer the streak before Brock Lesnar could ever get near 'Taker.
"I actually pitched it for Punk, because i thought it was the only thing that was going to keep Punk from eventually leaving WWE," Heyman said."Even before that match, he was itching to get out."
Heyman went on to add that he wanted Punk to win because it would have made him stay longer, which ultimately did not happen. About nine months later, Punk walked out on the WWE at the Royal Rumble.
Wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes passed away yesterday at the age of 69. Rhodes was a hugely loved character, who represented the every man and was known as The American Dream for his rags-to-riches story. He is survived by his two sons who are current WWE stars Goldust and Stardust.
After getting injured during a match with, Tyson Kidd's injury seems worse than first feared. The former tag team Champion potentially suffered a broken neck and he has been visited in hospital by Stone Cold Steve Austin and Edge, two former WWE stars who both suffered the same injury.
