On Apr. 5, 2009 two legends by the names of Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker fought each other on the biggest stage of them all, Wrestlemania. Shawn Michaels went into that match with one intent, ending The Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak. After their wonderful 30 minute match, Shawn Michaels lost and the streak was still intact.
During the 2009 Slammy Awards, HBK and The Undertaker received an award for 2009 match of the year. When HBK accepted the award he said that he can end the 17-0 streak at this year's Wrestlemania. On Raw, The Undertaker refused HBK a match at Wrestlemania 26 because he has nothing else to prove to him.
As Scott Manyard had pointed out there is no point of them facing again, if they had a feud with each other after their match rather than leaving for four months then I would have been down for it. Both men had a phenomenal match and The Undertaker won and proved he was the better man that night, what else is there to prove?
Now I have one question to ask: How can WWE stop this match from happening?
Rey Mysterio wins at The Royal Rumble
To be honest, The Undertaker is injured right now. He doesn't even show up on Smackdown half the time and when he does show up he doesn't wrestle. The fact that he's reigning World Champion doesn't seem reasonable. Shawn Michaels stated he wants to face The Undertaker to end his streak, but if he isn't champion anymore, then Michaels can't face him at Wrestlemania 26.
I would have Rey Mysterio win the championship from The Undertaker and do the impossible once again but that's just too unlikely. I would have Batista interfere and help Rey Mysterio win the World Championship. Batista could then state that it would be easier beating a 165-pound underdog rather than facing a 300-pound dead man.
Shawn Michaels Loses The Royal Rumble Match
Shawn Michaels said that he wants to face The Undertaker once more no matter what. The Royal Rumble is the only ticket that allows HBK to face The Undertaker, and if he loses the Rumble match itself than he can't face The Undertaker anymore. If this happens, then I'm looking for Triple H to eliminate HBK, which would set up a match between the two at Wrestlemania 26, perhaps for the WWE championship.
The Undertaker Loses at Elimination Chamber
I'm not sure who he could lose his championship to. There are many candidates, such as Batista, Chris Jericho, and even Edge. If Edge returns at the Rumble match then I'm sure he will win the Rumble match. Chris Jericho then wins the World Championship at Elimination Chamber and the two Canadians face each other at Wrestlemania 26.
If Batista wins at Elimination Chamber then he could face John Cena at Wrestlemania 26 for the World Heavyweight Championship. Seeing as though both men don't have plans for Wrestlemania this year and neither does the World Heavyweight Championship the three of them should make a fine couple. ;)
The Undertaker or Shawn Michaels get injured
This option is less than likely, and I don't want this option to turn up. Even though I would hate that this would happen it still counts as a way that this match could stop from turning up. I hope this option doesn't actually occur since I'm a huge fan of both men. I would rather prefer this next option.
Shawn Michaels turns heel
I don't know if WWE would stop this match from occurring but the least they can do is make this match more interesting. If HBK was to turn heel then he could do it by turning into a maniac hellbent on ending the streak no matter what it takes. The foreshadowing of this could begin at the Royal Rumble. The Undertaker would beat Rey Mysterio, then, while walking out, Shawn Michaels could super kick him in the face.
