John Cena vs The Streak at WrestleMania XXX

To me, that is the best play they could make next year as it relates to The Undertaker. It would be a simple recipe in that you play it as a mutual respect issue between two guys "who have nothing left to accomplish." If I were booking this I would move the belt off Cena at some point so you can have both the WWE Title and the World Heavyweight Title matches featured alongside The Streak.

While there will continue to be a lot of discussion about a possible John Cena heel turn I would argue that this is a completely separate issue.  Some seem to be advocating a heel Cena (which I would support) by having him turn and break The Streak (which I could not disagree with more). To me the previously mentioned mutual respect angle is the way to go.  It may come off as too derivative of the HBK/Triple H/Undertaker WrestleMania bouts or even the Rock/Cena WrestleMania 29 post-match exchanges.  I think it is worth it though as it is the best Streak match we could ask for next year.

Are there others that would be worthy adversaries to the Undertaker at WrestleMania?  Sure, there are.  Guys like Mark Henry (in a repeat of WrestleMania 22), Ryback, Brock Lesnar, Sheamus and others could certainly be worthy challengers.  None of them, not even Lesnar, would be as intriguing as WWE's top star John Cena taking on The Streak. 

WrestleMania XXX will hopefully be yet another great show.  Giving us John Cena vs The Undertaker would certainly help make that a reality.

  1. Great suggestion - As much as I'd like to see Dean Ambrose get made by ending the streak, I can't honestly think of a better opponent than John Cena. Good stuff.
