Point: Yes, the Undertaker's streak will not end this year.
Counterpoint: I say no. Many consider Shawn Michaels to be the best wrestler of all time. He won't go down with a loss.
P: The Undertaker has had enough of showing up at the end of Smackdown. He is ready for his next great match.
CP: Taker has looked a little lazy lately.
P: No doubt but this is the event he has won at so many times. I just can't see him losing.
CP: They both seem ready to retire.
P: The WWE has spent a lot of time promoting the streak.
CP: Yeah, it is mentioned whenever possible.
P: Why spend all that time building up the streak just to have him lose?
CP: Streaks are made to be broken.
P: But the streak is talked about year after year.
CP: They don't need that streak. There is always the next big match.
P: I guess but why would they suddenly decide after 17 years to stop it?
CP: It has to stop at some point.
P: When it stops, it will be used to promote the next big star. It would be better used as a passing of the torch. It won't be stopped like this.
CP: I don't know about that. It just seems like this will be the pinnacle of HBK's Hall Of Fame career. If the streak ends, it will be to a guy like Michaels.
P: The thing about HBK is that he has taken time off in the past due to injuries.
CP: Most people think that retirement is not far away for HBK.
P: He doesn't have much left. It is likely that he is broke down.
CP: He certainly has nothing left to prove.
P: This is true. He should be ready to move on. He should have plenty of bank.
CP: Yes, he could retire but one of his many nicknames is Mr. WrestleMania for a reason.
P: He has had multiple great matches but his Wrestlemania solo record is a mere 5-8. His only wins were over Tito Santana, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho and Vince Mcmahon. He is no stranger to losing at Wrestlemania.
CP: That isn't a good record but they have been building Michaels up as much as they have the streak.
P: But they are have him looking stupid like he can't get past the mere sight of the dead man even in a tag-team title match.
CP: That was lame but Michaels drilled The Undertaker with some sweet chin music to end his title run.
P: That was done so they can get Edge the match-up with Chris Jericho.
CP: You know...these two guys have been around.
P: Both of them have been with the WWE/WWF for over 20 years.
CP: They have put in their time.
P: Is there any disputing that HBK is the better performer?
CP: Undertaker has his moments. The fans love him.
P: Yes, but the WWE does not regard The Undertaker as highly as John Cena, Triple H, or Michaels.
CP: The Undertaker is a legend. The crowd goes nuts when the bells ring.
P: His crazy faces are pretty cool.
CP: Wouldn't it be a great climax to have the streak end and HBK goes on to wrestle another day.
P: They could go that way. I wouldn't be surprised if they had a disqualification of some sort so they can have it both ways.
CP: I wouldn't be surprised either but that seems unlikely. We shall see.
