Whenever the Undertaker's streak is up for discussion, there are always two schools of thought: one side argues that it should never end while the other side craves that a talented individual will get a massive push from being the one to finally defeat the Undertaker.
Is CM Punk the man to finally do it? Many people think so. The argument can be made that no other wrestler in WWE has reached the star power of CM Punk since John Cena, which leads many to believe that he's worthy of the spotlight that would be cast upon him.
He's viewed as a workhorse that is young enough to reap the benefits from this achievement and a trustworthy enough mainstay that they need not worry about tossing all of their eggs into an empty basket.
After holding the WWE Championship for over an entire year's span, CM Punk dropped the title to the Rock at the Royal Rumble to allow for the buildup to the John Cena vs. The Rock rematch main event for this year's WrestleMania.
This course of action has upset many fans in the process that feel as though CM Punk deserves better treatment. Could a streak victory be compensation for his dropping the title?
It's no secret that the Undertaker has slowed down over the past few years. He has gone from a mainstay on the regular roster to a special attraction who essentially only works the Road to WrestleMania before becoming inactive once more.
The nagging injuries are building up and the uncertainty of his future WrestleMania matches is called into question regularly. More and more frequently, the concept of his impending retirement is brought up and as the years go by, the more believable it becomes.
WWE could be finally ready to let go of the commodity of The Streak and pass the momentum on to CM Punk in the process.
What if, however, they are not ready to have the streak end...
