I know a lot of you guys are wondering why I'm writing this article as many of you think it was the right decision to book this match at Mania for the second time.

But just think about this match.

Its the two best performers in WWE going head to head!

Its Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels!

Its Streak vs Career!

No matter what happens on Sunday night, some WWE fans will be upset. Either Undertaker fans will be fuming because the streak will be broken or HBK fans will be upset because he's 'retiring.' (Presuming there is 0% chance of a draw)

I think it would be wrong to end the streak but I also think it is wrong to send HBK packing without one more World Title reign.

However, I believe if the streak is ever going to be broken, it will be this year. Undertaker hasn't got long left and WWE will want to make this big news(rightfully so) and will want to get as much milage out of it as possible.

So, in a match where a draw is highly unlikely due to the stipulations involved(If anyone has any ideas for a draw under the stips, feel free to tell me), I ask you, has the WWE or more specifically, Vince McMahon, backed himself into a corner with this match?

Because, in a match where there almost has to be a winner, despite the outcome, we will all be losers.

Either HBK hangs up the boots or Undertaker loses the one thing that makes him stand out in WWE.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to leave comments/suggestions.
