WWE: Is Triple H-Undertaker The Real Wrestlemania Main Event?
With Triple H And The Undertaker Facing Off At Wrestlemania, Will They Be In The Main Event?
This past Monday on Raw, the 2/21/11 countdown came and it went exactly as almost everyone expected with The Undertaker making his return. However, before he could do anything there was another man who made his presence felt - Triple H.
The two men had a stare down in the ring, and then Triple H looked at the Wrestlemania sign. Undertaker looked at it and gave a smirk, but began to walk away. When the crowd booed this, he stopped turned around and made his throat slashing gesture.
For those that follow the inner workings of the WWE, we have known for a while that a Triple H-Undertaker match was going to take place at Wrestlemania XXVII, and that it will likely be a streak vs career match, a la Undertaker-Shawn Michaels last year.
Whether you agree with the (potential) stipulation of the match or not, I myself am opposed to it, you have to agree that this is the main event of the show, right?
Let's look at the other choice for the main event: The WWE Championship match between The Miz and John Cena. This might get the main event spot because John Cena is in the match, and it's almost a given that The Rock is going to be involved in this match somehow. The problem is, at least right now, this is not a hot feud. They completely screwed things up at the end of Raw with that tag title match. To be fair, they still have five weeks to build that match, but right now Cena vs Rock is a much, much, much bigger deal and that's not going to happen.
The Undertaker-Triple H match will feature two of the most popular wrestlers in WWE history making their return to the ring after a lot of time off. It will be the "end" of the career for Triple H, because we all know that Taker is never losing at Wrestlemania, nor should he.
Plus, the biggest cherry on top of this match will be Shawn Michaels will return as the guest referee. That adds another level of drama to the match that nothing else on the card can compete with. You have the story of HBK being a referee in a match with Triple H, his best friend, against Undertaker, the man who ended his career at Wrestlemania XXVI.
When you look at the stories involved with these two matches, it's only appropriate that Taker-Triple H goes on last because it's got the most juice to the story.
Unless Rock becomes a big part of the Cena-Miz match and screws Cena out of the title, which is unlikely to happen but after Cena's promo Monday never say never, this match just doesn't have that special Wrestlemania feel to it.
