As we all know, WrestleManiaXXIX is just around the corner. As excited as I am for the grand daddy of them all, I cannot help but be even more excited for the 30th anniversary next spring.
Now, don't get me wrong, I can't STAND when a WrestleMania is set up just to advertise the next one (i.e. WM27), but hear me out.
At WrestleMania 30, there is going to be something BIG. I don't mean just ordinary WrestleMania big, I mean Rock vs. Cena or Hogan vs. Rock big. I have a feeling in my gut that we may get just that. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. CM Punk to be exact.
Stone Cold has come out several times and said he would be open to one more match. Now, if you booked this right now and had it on Monday Night Raw tonight, it would be HUGE. The match would book itself.
But let's think about the potential we have with a year to build. CM Punk is facing The Undertaker April 7, 2013, just a few weeks from now. I am about to suggest something that will be shocking, heartbreaking , and unthinkable.
Punk takes the streak. DIRTY.
Paul Heyman slides in a steel chair. The Shield could get involved. Whatever. But, have him win with an asterisk.
If that made you cringe, it was supposed to. Think about what this would do to Punk. He could walk out, for a WHOLE YEAR, riding the coattails of his victory. Claiming to be immortal, the greatest of all time. Have him be an absolutely AWFUL heel for a whole year. One night, maybe around the next Royal Rumble, he's about to hit a GTS on a legend (maybe Ric Flair or Mick Foley) when suddenly...
Here comes the rattlesnake. This would be THE greatest match of all time. The Best in the World. The man who broke the streak, a 400+ day title reign, and the biggest asshole ever VERSUS The Baddest Son of a Bitch on the Face of the Earth, AUSTIN 3:16. You have two guys who are great on the mic -- the redneck jokes would write themselves on Punks end, while spraying the beer hose on the "Straight-Edge Superstar" writes itself for SCSA.
What do you think Cagesiders, is ending the streak worth the amazing possibility of this match?
