WWE WrestleMania Storyline: Undertaker Sets Up the End of the Streak

Amber Gibbs@ame_MaceyCorrespondent IIFebruary 8, 2012

The Undertaker is the phenom—there is no doubt about that—but the fact that remains is that last year's WrestleMania was the only time the Deadman could not rise on his own two feet and return to the backstage area. The Undertaker legitimately could not stand on his own power. That has never happened before. His dominance has been a force to be reckoned with for decades, and last year, the WWE Universe probably would have sworn that Triple H vs The Undertaker Part Two was Taker's last match.

When those two icons stood in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania 27, the crowd went wild, but by the end of the match, the crowd stood in awe and disbelief that the phenom could not celebrate his 19-0 victory. Meanwhile, Triple H walked back toward the locker room, looking just a scared as the rest of the WWE Universe.

Days after the epic match at WrestleMania 27, it was revealed that The Undertaker had further injured his back, neck and shoulder. And even though the 46 year old wrestler has injuries that push him to the health of an 80 year old, he still has returned for WrestleMania 28.

Fast forward to the present time—even though it seems that Triple H is not going to accept The Undertaker's request for HHH vs Taker Part Three, it is destined to happen.

Why? Two reasons—reason number one, there has been speculation that HHH vs Taker Part Two was not suppose to end in "Hell's Gate," but the referee noticed the extent of damage The Undertaker was facing and the decision  was changed.

Reason number two, last year Taker stated that Triple H is the only other attitude wrestler left from that era. Calling Triple H and himself, "the last two outlaws." The Undertaker also stated that he would want the streak to end with Triple H— possible foreshadowing? 

One would think with the amount of tenure that The Undertaker has with the WWE organization, he would be able to retire with his streak in tact, but the WWE is all about business, and the WWE Universe never knows what the statistics say about ratings if the Undertaker loses at WrestleMania 28.

So here are the questions...

Will the powers let The Undertaker retire undefeated at the biggest stage of them all, WrestleMania?

Has The Undertaker set up the end of the streak?

Or will Triple H ruin the streak and force The Undertaker's retirement?
