Warning: This blog post might not please everybody.

Let me begin by stating I am a HUGE Steve Austin fan and having him return for one more match at WrestleMania would be a dream come true since I never actually got to see him wrestle live and in person BUT why would he return??

Stone Cold Steve Austin must be asked thousands of times a day on twitter would he return for one last match and in his latest interview he has said the chances of an in ring return are “pretty damn slim” because it took him years to get over the withdrawals from not wrestling. He’s had countless surgeries on injuries and at the age of 48 he doesn’t see himself being able to go as well as he could in his prime. His last match was against The Rock at WrestleMania XIX so it’s been a decade since that night at Safeco Field.  He doesn’t exactly need the money and I don’t see one last match being in anyway a benefit to his legacy in professional wrestling.

 

The match everybody wants to see is Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. CM Punk so lets address that possible feud:

Who would be the Heel and who would be the face?

What would be the reason behind the feud? (I know they have had their run ins but nothing concrete to start a feud)

If he came back and faced CM Punk what would the outcome be?

If he lost to CM Punk it would be another “Final Match” loss, if he won the feud would have no continuation and would just be another loss on the WrestleMania record of CM Punk who is supposed to be the present and future of the WWE. It has been talked about and reported about so much that if it did happen it could end up a huge flop. I think the fans should embrace the idea of two future legends headlining WrestleMania XXX.  (Punk vs. Bryan maybe? You know you want it.)

 

As much as it pains me to say I think maybe it’s time we let Stone Cold Steve Austin leave his in ring status as retired but of course we can still dream of hearing that glass shatter on the grandest stage of them all. WrestleMania XXX should be the biggest Mania ever and we expect a who’s who of the biggest names in wrestling history to be there so who knows this Hall Of Famer might have a change of heart and lace up those boots again or maybe we’ll see him involved in another storyline in somebody’s corner or as a special guest referee. Stone Cold will go down in history as arguably the biggest star professional wrestling has ever seen and a great in ring performer so why can’t we leave it at that………

 

Steve Austin we salute you sir.

“And that’s the bottom line Cause Stone Cold said so”

Who & When?

These are the two big questions when it comes to Undertakers streak, we all know the streak has to end at WrestleMania but what year will it be and who will get the PRIVILEGE and rub from Taker if it does happen. I’m going to give my picks for who I think could end the streak and why??

John Cena

Anybody who has followed my twitter over the last couple of years knows I am not a Cena fan but if the WWE want to keep the illusion that Undertaker could possibly be beaten and the streak could end it needs somebody viable to get the job done. It doesn’t take even the most casual WWE fan to realize that John Cena is a megastar in the world of pro-wrestling so if you have Undertaker face off at WrestleMania against him it would be believable that he could beat the Undertaker 1-2-3. If you wanted to address the idea of the John Cena heel turn this could be a way to do it as well, Cena cheating to end the streak would draw mega heat in my opinion BUT it is also my opinion that the Cena heel turn will never happen.

Kane

I know Kane vs. Undertaker has happened at WrestleMania multiple times but I would still enjoy a final Brother vs. Brother match at WrestleMania with Undertaker as the face and Kane as a heel. Kane has returned heel and wants to know why Undertaker wasn’t around to help him against the Wyatt’s then saying he wants Undertaker to pay and by pay he means his career & streak to be over, possibly having the two in a career vs. career match. WWE could have a really dark build to this which could be excellent with Kane in his original mask and ring wear attacking people in the ring during matches looking like a believable threat to the streak. It ends with Kane coming out as the winner over his brother with a tombstone .

Bray Wyatt

I mentioned at the beginning of this post Undertaker could possibly want to give somebody new a rub to get them over so why not the eater of worlds? He has the potential to be another evil megastar in the WWE . He has great mic & promo skills like Undertaker which would lead to a great build and they could use the Kane abduction storyline as background to why Undertaker wants to face Bray Wyatt. Bray Wyatt looking like another victim to the Undertaker when the abducted Kane turns on the Undertaker tombstones him and Bray gets the pin and ends the streak. Now that would leave a stunned WrestleMania crowd.

Brock Lesnar

LESNAR IS A BEAST!! He has the presence and strength to beat the Undertaker down at WrestleMania and could be another viable threat to the streak. The reason behind the match has a couple of routes, it could be from the Undertaker & Brock confrontation at UFC 121 or it could be from the already rumored idea that Paul Heyman wants another shot at the streak because CM Punk couldn’t get the job done. He chooses Lesnar to get it done and Lesnar is successful beating the Undertaker so badly that instead of walking from the ring the druids appear and carry him in a casket to the back signalling the end of the Undertaker.

These are my picks to end the greatest streak is wrestling history…….
