WWE WrestleMania 27: 10 Wrestlers Who Deserve a Shot at Undertaker's Streak

1 of 14

    WWE Championship

    World Heavyweight Championship

    Intercontinental Championship 

    These are no longer the "dreams" a wrestler dreams of. The ultimate prize in WWE is to end the Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania.

    I will go through five names who I feel should have a shot in the future followed by five names I feel should have happened before.

    These names are solely my choice, and I hope you agree with some and disagree with others because that's what the IWC is about: Debate.

In the Future: CM Punk

2 of 14

    We saw a brief feud in late 2009, but it wasn't that long of a feud, and as of now Punk is one of WWE's hottest heels right now and will provide a legitimate threat to the streak with his antics.

    At next year's Wrestlemania: 5/10

    A feud between them down the line: 6.5/10

In the Future: Wade Barrett

3 of 14

    This match was one of the earliest leaked matches of this year's big event, but was later changed to Triple H, due to HHH and Undertaker feeling no "big match" was on this year's card.

    Like it or not, these two will do battle one day or another.

    At next year's WrestleMania: 7.5/10

    A feud between them down the line: 9/10

In the Future: John Cena

4 of 14

    This one is certainly a hot topic for debate amongst the IWC. I feel WWE should do this match at WrestleMania, because if this bout occurred anywhere except WrestleMania, it would lack luster.

    Sure the match would be great, it may be outstanding, but without the actual match at Wrestlemania—John Cena vs. the Undertaker isn't as good as John Cena vs. the streak.

    At next year's WrestleMania: 6.5/10

    A feud between them down the line: 9/10 (It must happen!)

In the Future: Alberto Del Rio

5 of 14

    Del Rio is hyped as the "next big thing" in WWE, however some may say he "is the big thing."

    Del Rio, ever since his arrival in the WWE, has been presented as a massive player; he came with a luxury car and he stole Orton's pyro. Who else has all this, and isn't thought of a future main eventer?

    Del Rio is a hot heel right now, but I heard there were plans a few months back indicating when he managed to become a full fledged main eventer, he would turn face.

    I'm not one to speculate it is still a lock to happen soon, but WWE changes plans as often as Vince's likes.

    At next year's WrestleMania: 5.5/10

    A feud between them down the line: 7/10 (both on Smackdown so will eventually lead to a match at least)

In the Future: Chris Jericho

6 of 14

    Name one bad match featuring my beloved Jericho....


    That's the reason why he should take on the streak.

    At next year's WrestleMania: 4/10

    A feud between them down the line: 9.5/10 (They are two good not for WWE to take the chance)

(Honorable Mention) in the Future: Sheamus

7 of 14

    Sheamus was one of the people who were being discussed to face Undertaker this year, but most people looked past him, and felt he will re-ignite his passion and feud with HHH,

    That didn't happen also, instead he will be facing Daniel Bryan. 

    As popular Bryan is with the IWC, I would prefer to face Undertaker or Triple H. 

    At next year's Wrestlemania: 7.5/10

    A feud between them down the line: 9/10 (As long as Kevin Dunn doesn't relegate Sheamus to jobber status)

Should Have Happened Before: The Rock

8 of 14

    The Rock vs. Undertaker should have happened a long time ago, but when would it have happened?

    WrestleMania 19—Rock vs. Austin

    WrestleMania 18—Rock vs. Hogan

    WrestleMania 17—Rock vs. Austin

    WrestleMania 2000 (16)—Rock vs. Triple H Vs Mankind Vs Big Show

    WrestleMania 15—Rock vs. Austin

    Excluding WrestleMania 16, due to Undertaker not competing then, what match would you replace with Rock vs the streak?

    Probability of how good a match it would have been: 9/10

Should Have Happened Before: Stone Cold Steve Austin

9 of 14

    I believe if Stone Cold returns for one more match, he should wrestle for the title of "streak ender."

    Had Stone Cold been around a little longer, we would have gotten it.

    Probability of how good a match it would have been: 8/10

Should Have Happened: Hulk Hogan

10 of 14

    If Hulk Hogan vs. the Undertaker ever happened, Hogan would be the closest person ever to ending it.

    Probability of how good a match it would have been: 8/10

Should Have Happened: Bret Hart

11 of 14

    I personally wouldn't put this atop of my dream card, however Bret Hart vs. the Undertaker I think would be on a few people's wish list, therefore I added it.

    Probability of how good a match it would have been: 8/10 

Should Have Happened: Kurt Angle

12 of 14

    Kurt Angle is a supreme athlete, and at 42 years of age most likely could out-maneuver a 20 year old.

    He is great, and if he ever returned to WWE, challenging the streak would be a great way for Angle to be named as a surprise opponent.

    Probability of how good a match it would have been:  9.5/10

Honarable Mentions That Should Have Taken on the Streak

13 of 14

    Booker T


    Razor Ramon

    Brock Lesnar

    Mick Foley (The only reason I never included him is because of the Hell in the Cell match, which would have been overshadowed should he have ever competed against the streak)

    Eddie Guerrero

    Jeff Hardy

    Rey Mysterio

    Sting (Had he been in WWE)
