Video: CM Punk vs. Undertaker promo hypes WrestleMania 29 match better than any angle

This promo for the CM Punk vs. Undertaker match does a better job of hyping their WrestleMania 29 encounter than any angle they could run on Monday Night Raw. Check it.

When dealing with WrestleMania, the inevitable analysis of the hype job for each match on the card goes into overdrive and borders on overbearing. You can safely double that up when dealing with an Undertaker match at WrestleMania, which is why the build to his bout against CM Punk at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013, in New Jersey has been under such scrutiny.

It's a big deal.

The problem is that everyone has been left wanting, or at least that's the general viewpoint so far. Punk seems uninspired, until last night "The Deadman" looked like that's exactly what he is, and Paul Bearer's death and how fans are dealing with it has cast a long shadow over the proceedings.

In short, the hype job for the match has mostly sucked.

That's why this video is so refreshing. Actually, the WWE Production crew once again deserves a world of credit for this promo, which does a better job of hyping the match in two weeks than any angle on Monday Night Raw possibly could.

Enjoy. And get ready, because we're just 12 days away.
