Some wrestling marks would love to see CM Punk rise from being "King of the Indies" to the man who ends The Undertaker's legendary WrestleMania winning streak. As historic as that would be for an independent wrestler—and quite frankly, all non-WWE looking wrestlers—it would be a bad thing.
Punk is already the WWE's top heel; what added benefit would there actually be from him upsetting Taker?
There is no denying how this would pave Punk's way for a legacy as one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of the WWE. For those who debate that fact, how many other guys would have defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania?
I'll wait while you count.
With that being said, Punk is the man who can take credit for transforming the WWE from PG to something a little more on edge. His "shoot" promos will forever live on in WWE lore and he's already one of the longest-reigning WWE champions ever.
Punk seems like he'd be the perfect candidate to end the streak, but can we honestly say that this is the best buildup ever to a Taker match at 'Mania? I'd say no.
Give it to a younger guy that has more to prove, if anyone at all.
