It’s a phenomenon that has taken the world of professional wrestling by storm in recent years.
So much so that “the Streak” is now mentioned alongside achievements such as Bruno Sammartino’s insurmountable seven-year WWE Championship reign as a record that may never be broken.
To even appear at 20 different WrestleManias is an impressive feat in itself, the likes of which that few others will ever replicate. But to be booked to win in each of those 20 events is nothing short of spectacular.
It is a fitting testament to one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen.
However, the unfortunate truth is that those two decades of action have taken their toll on a man who is now just days away from turning 48.
As a result, the preservation of the Streak is no longer a guarantee, and many have speculated that the astonishing record could soon be broken.
So could this be the year that the Streak does indeed come to an end?
Well, before we get ahead of ourselves, there are a number of considerations that one must make. This article identifies five key factors to consider before making any predictions for the WrestleMania XXIX encounter between The Undertaker and CM Punk.
