Wrestlemania 28: Triple H Will Fail to Kill the Undertaker's Undefeated Streak

Tom KinslowFeatured ColumnistApril 1, 2012

The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak is one of the few pure, untainted things in the WWE universe, and by the end of the night, it will stay that way.

Keeping the Undertaker's streak alive is one of the more profitable things the WWE has going for it, and inevitably, the company will keep the cash rolling in each April. Not only that, but if it were to end the streak, especially to Triple H, there would be a huge backlash among fans, who would see it as another power grab by Vince McMahon's son-in-law.

There is entirely too much to lose by killing the WrestleMania streak, and as many mistakes as the creative team has made in the past, this is something so simple even the WWE couldn't screw it up. As easy as this angle is, you have to give credit where it's due, as this feud has developed to a point where there is some doubt that the Undertaker can get the job done.

For a good portion of the contest last year, it looked Triple H was going to do the impossible, and once again, there is at least the illusion that the former champion could climb wrestling's most daunting mountain top and slay the streak. Obviously, it wasn't to be, but after the beating he dished out, there is a small segment of fans who will think the Undertaker will return to the back a defeated man.

However, it's nothing more than an illusion, set to drive pay-per-view buys up for an event headlined by a returning icon. Everyone knows the WWE does what's good for business and the streak is the best annual business is having an undefeated Undertaker on the marquee.

As talented and as respected as the Deadman is, people aren't going to turn out to see the Undertaker fight with a massive blemish on his record. The WWE works their entire year around WrestleMania, and the streak is the biggest attraction each and every time.

Triple H is a very worthy challenger, and the creative team has done a heck of a job trying to sell how much peril the streak is in, but in the end, it's nothing more than a smokescreen, and when the night is over, the Undertaker will continue to reign over WrestleMania.

Legends come and go, but the streak is forever.
