The Undertaker always finds his way into WWE Rumors this time of year. While we’re still a good ways from the road to Wrestlemania, there’s already buzz about who Taker could face on April 7th from MetLife Stadium.
In addition to the normal chatter, rumors are also swirling that Undertaker could enter this year’s Royal Rumble match.
By entering and winning the Rumble, Taker would get a shot at the WWE Championship against none other than CM Punk.
Now here’s where the rumor gets crazy, CM Punk would defeat the Undertaker, thus earning the respect he’s currently demanding. Punk would end the streak, and you would have to think, the Undertaker’s career.
The Undertaker’s last appearance was at the 1,000th Raw in July.
I’m not sure how I feel about this scenario. I do think the Undertaker will lose his final match, because he’s an old school guy and that’s what old school wrestlers do, but I don’t know if I see him losing to Punk.
Beating Taker at Mania is the ultimate ‘put over.’ You can’t get a bigger endorsement than that, so whoever does get the honor will have to be a guy who’s not quite in that legendary category yet, but close to it. I suppose Punk could be that guy.
Punk is just one more in the long list of names I’ve heard rumored to face the Dead Man at Mania. Others include: John Cena, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, and Ryback.
