Rock/Cena 2 I say no too

If Rock is planning to wrestle for another 2-3 years, then he will have other opportunities to win the title, but he has to agree to show up to all of the raw and defend his title on all the ppvs where he has it.
It has to be a 2 way street. I'm a big Rock fan, but I wouldn't let him win at RR and skip the EC chamber either.

And then they can turn Ryback Punk into Foley Punk into Punk Rock with Lesnar getting involved setting up Rock Lesnar and Punk after going over EVEYONE he gets Taker which imagine if they put him over Taker with a stable of Ryback (turning) Lesnar Heyman Ambrose Rollins and once he beats Taker he almost takes a dark side and they turn it into the new ministry and become the most dominant force ever. They could build a mega star.
But he needs to start beating people clean.
WrestleMania should be...................T.L. Hopper vs Aldo Montoya!!!!!! Big time draw!!!!
Ok, just kidding. Would this be Undertaker's last match????
If so, having CM Punk go over would be huge. I'd mark out.
The worst thing they could do to Punk and his streak is to have Taker beat him and then retire the next night while dropping the title. It would make everything they did with PunK meaningless.
This is just some website rambling because Punk has his own streak. It would be a streak vs. streak match. Anyone on the internet could come up with that.
At this point Taker is not going to fight a champion at Mania because he isn't going to wrestle outside of Mania. They won't waste him on the Rumble because his body is so broken down. If he injures himself at the Rumble then their biggest draw for Mania is out.
I think the Rock will beat Punk at the RR and then Cena will get his win over the Rock. Cena still needs to go over just like the Rock eventually went over Hogan at WM18.
I hope they don't do this. Punk just isn't on the same level as Taker. He's had the belt for a year, but he's been a disappointment with it. If this match does happpen I hope they don't have Punk go over. It would be a waste to have someone that can't draw beat Taker. I like Punk to an extent, but he shouldn't be the one ending the streak
Streak vs Streak could be a huge selling point for Mania. C.M Punk going clean over the Rock at RR to retain would go ALLLLLLONG WAY to getting fans to believe Punk could POSSIBLY defeat Taker and the streak. Cena couldnt beat Rock. If Punk can...HUGE.
I like Punk v.s Taker. It would be another classic under both their belts. Taker-Brock or Taker-Sting like some have rumored would be just as good. Either way I'd expect too see Taker in a GREAT match come Wrestlemania
I don't see any way Taker wins the belt and retires with it. He is an old school traditionalist and wants to do whats best for the company. If he does win the belt, he will drop it the following month. There was some talk that Taker might not be ready for a mania match, but supposedly he recently said he's on board for a high profile match.
I think about the only opponents you could do at this point would be Rock, Lesnar, Sting, Punk and Cena or Austin if he came back.
Right now outside of John Cena there isn't a regular wrestler on the roster who can have a big money match with Taker. Then you have the Rock and Brock Lesner who could wrestle Taker. If I had to book a few matches for WM right now this is what I would do.
John Cena vs. (c) The Rock
The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesner
CM Punk vs. Mick Foley w/Stone Cold as Special Guest Referee
Daniel Bryan vs. (c) Dolph Ziggler
Those would be my 4 matches to build around WM. Because the Rock will most likely leave you can have maybe a heel Randy Orton vs. a baby face Miz in a number 1 contenders match for John Cena. Reason being is they usually do rematches on the PPV after WM, but with the Rock gone Cena needs a program.
