What's up, ladies and gentlemen? My name is Eric Kanes and today I am going to be discussing one of the hottest topics that gets brought up every year right before WrestleMania season—The Undertaker's streak.
The Undertaker's streak has become a staple of WrestleMania over the past several years and his streak is more valuable than all of the titles in the company combined. As we've seen with guys like Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio, winning a world title can help you but it certainly does not guarantee main event status.
On the other hand, one victory over The Undertaker at WrestleMania would instantly create a new star. That is usually why there is so much hype going into The Undertaker's WrestleMania match every year.
However, The Undertaker's career is coming to an end. At 46 years of age, The Undertaker has had one of the most legendary careers in history, lasting over 25 years, but he also suffered a lot of injuries over that time span. This match at WrestleMania will more than likely be his last. That means that if the streak will ever end, it will be this year.
With so much at stake, WWE is going to have to put a lot of thought and effort into choosing just the right opponent for The Undertaker this year. This article is going to look at the top five current wrestlers who could give The Undertaker a run for his money. In each slide, we are going to take a look at the benefits of that particular superstar facing The Undertaker and also the incentive they'd have behind facing him.
One important thing to note: I do NOT think that all five of these guys should end The Undertaker's streak. I only believe that three of them should. This article is about the top five guys who should face The Undertaker at WrestleMania, not beat him. However, this article is titled "The Top 5 Candidates To End The Undertaker's WrestleMania Streak" because if I had to choose five guys, these are probably the five I'd choose.
And now, without any further ado, let's get this show on the road.
