So far, there has been very little effort put into the feud between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker.
To kick this feud off, Lesnar and Paul Heyman complained about how they were interested in a WWE World Heavyweight Championship title shot, but weren't granted it.
Then, as if they were settling for a consolation prize, they simply challenged The Undertaker and he accepted it.
That's all that happened and it seemed like WWE would have been content with just letting it stop there and only putting out video packages and graphics to remind us to check out the match come pay-per-view time.
Since then, virtually nothing has happened to add any meat to this.
Heyman has expressed that Lesnar will win. The Undertaker disagrees. Shouldn't that all be default subtext within a storyline, rather than the whole storyline itself?
Compare this to last year's event, where CM Punk was disrespecting the memory of Paul Bearer to mess with The Undertaker's mind.
Nothing like that is going on this year. Lesnar isn't even being made to look like a true threat to The Undertaker's WrestleMania undefeated streak.
WWE commentators have even flat out said that he basically stands no chance. What a great way to sell this match!
The one video package explaining how The Deadman's age is catching up to him could have played a big role in this, but has yet to be touched on since then.
There is no actual story to be told without that or something else in its place. Instead, it just becomes a match where someone needs to win and someone needs to lose, which is nothing different from anything else on the card.
If the company just wants to call it like it is, stating "there is always an Undertaker match and this year, it looks like Lesnar is wrestling in that spot," then that is okay.
But in order for that to be enough, there needs to be a feeling that it means something, and telling us that it means something isn't enough.
Writing 101 teaches you that you need to show rather than tell.
Lesnar needs to look stronger and The Undertaker needs to look weaker for us to think The Streak could end, or else this will essentially become a filler match.
