Regardless of your thoughts going into the CM Punk and Undertaker match at WrestleMania, the entire WWE universe was on the edge of their seats.
Each finisher and near fall brought you one step closer to your preconceived notion of how the match was going to end. Even if you feel that the streak should never end, WrestleMania XXIX had plenty of "are they actually going to let him lose" moments.
In the end, Undertaker prevailed and moved to 21-0.
After the three count was made, there was really only one question left to be asked: Who is next? Who is going to be the next WWE Superstar that is going to challenge the streak and should that person end it?
WWE legend and Hall of Famer Bret "Hitman" Hart has his own opinion on this subject.
Hart took part in a Q&A session with his fans on his official Facebook page. During this session, fans were allowed to ask Hart a variety of questions. The following two questions and answers stood out:
Who should end the streak?
—Joe Henning [Michael McGillicutty]
What would be a fitting match for Undertaker to go out on?
—Lets just say at WM 50 [I'm sure he meant 30. I truly hope that he meant to say 30.] – Undertaker loses streak to Joe Henning. And he is pinned with the PerfectPlex at the 59 minute mark.
I have to admit that I am a bit on the fence in regards to Hart's feelings.
For starters, I was a huge fan of Mr. Perfect. I loved his gimmick and his character. I thought he was a terrific technical wrestler. I also feel that he was never given the proper spot or push in WWE.
As far as his son goes, this is tough. You could easily argue that the WWE isn't properly utilizing Henning. It would be very easy to make a case for that argument, seeing as how his TV time is pretty much non existent. That being said, he has had some TV time in that past and has been underwhelming to say the least.
The one thing that Henning does have going for him is the fact that he is a young and raw talent. There have been many opinions that the person who ends the streak should be an up-and-coming superstar. If the WWE were to ever get behind Henning, develop his character and push him, there could be some real merit to this suggestion.
However, at this point in time, I just don't think that Henning is a viable option to wrestle Undertaker at WrestleMania 30.
One other interesting thing here is that Hart seems to be of the opinion that the streak should end. Granted, he could have taken the question along the lines of he had to provide a name. In the past, though, other WWE Superstars have answered the same question by saying they do not believe that the streak should end.
Until Undertaker finally decides to retire, this is always going to be a hotly debated topic. My personal view is that the streak should end. My personal hope is that the WWE allows the fate of the streak to be 100 percent in the hands of Undertaker.
