Hey it's Svyato here and I am ready to give you my thoughts on the greaetest streak in sports entertainment.
Of course, I am talking about the Undertaker's undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. Last night I had a great storyline for how Jericho could end the streak.
As I deliver this article I ask you to remember that Jericho is a man who deserves this right and I ask 'Taker fans not to flag this article as offensive (laugh).
Chris Jericho: what can you say about the man?
The 12-year olds will say: He sucks, Cena kicked his ass.
Most intelligent people would say he is the best in the WWE (praise them).
Most people that don't know WWE would ask: Who is that?
Despite what anyone says, Chris Jericho is a one of a kind. He is quite possibly the best technical wrestler in WWE history. The man was the first-ever Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion.
He holds the record for the most IC championships (9). He has unmasked the Luchador, Rey Mysterio.
Chris Jericho has done so much and helped the WWE benefit from it, but somehow this man is still underrated when it comes to the top wrestlers of all time.
So I think adding an accomplishment like beating the Undertaker at Wrestlemania would really solidify his legend.
I was thinking on how they could start a feud with these guys some time before Wrestlemania. Maybe before the Rumble or No Way Out. It could play out either way.
Have them start the feud sometime before the Rumble and give them a match at the PPV with Undertaker winning. Then at No Way Out have Jericho defeat Taker to even it up at one a piece.
Then the next night you could have Undertaker or Jericho (doesn't really matter which one) come out saying that they've settled nothing and their feud should be decided by who wins at Wrestlemania 26.
Have the other agree and then just provide great build up until 'Mania (with these two I don't think that's an issue).
Think about this: if HBK and Undertaker provided such an epic encounter, think what these two can do! It's amazing!
Then at 'Mania you have Jericho beat Undertaker, and then have Undertaker pick up a mic and get ready to have him announce something to the crowd.
Undertaker would announce something like...
"I've always shown what the Undertaker is all about at Wrestlemania. No one has ever been able to handle it, until now."
*Walks around the ring for a little bit.*
"I have decided that I'm officially retiring, right now!"
It would be the perfect reason, and Undertaker is suppose to be retiring in 2010 anyway. So it could work out.
You could also start the feud some time before No Way Out and have them face each other in a Steel Cage Match at the PPV.
You could have one of them climbing out of the cage and one walking out at the same time and have them outside the cage at the exact same time for a draw.
The next night, one of them comes out saying they demand a rematch to prove that they are better than the other. The other accepts the match for Wrestlemania.
Then it's basically the same thing. You have Chris win and 'Taker retire.
Now you might say, "Chris shouldn't end the streak, my favourite wrestler _________(fill in blank) should!"
Well my response would be that Chris is better than _________ (fill in blank). I would also really bring up Chris is among the all-time best wrestlers (again).
He is truly one of the best, and despite that he's still not considered to be up there.
When you think best wrestler of all time, you think: Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan (barfs), etc. You might think Jericho, but you will never truly consider him the best.
Now tell me if you add an accomplishment like this onto his resume your opinion won't change at least a bit won't it? Especially if it's the stellar match I expect it to be!
Now when anyone asks you...
Who do you think should end the streak? You can answer...
Why? Because he is the best in the world at what he does and everyone knows it! Well except for the kiddies. For them it's Cena, but they know nothing yet, no offense.
Some of you may also say that the streak should never end! My answer to that...
All good things have to come to an end.
