|Triple H at Wrestlemania 25 (Chad Smart photo)|
Now there's a new rumor out this week. And while the Sting marks are still holding on to hope, I think this rumor has a little more chance of happening. Actually a lot more.
Word is Triple H and Undertaker are both returning to the ring soon and will face each other at Wrestlemania 27. And this will be another Streak vs. Career match. Oh yeah, and Shawn Michaels will be the special guest referee.
Remember though this is a RUMOR. But I'm going to voice my opinion anyway. With less than 2 months to Mania, there's not a whole lot of time to build up something here. Especially since the Undertaker seemingly has unfinished business with Kane and Wade Barrett and Triple H still needs to seek out revenge on Sheamus. And we won't see who's behind the 2/21/11 (Undertaker) promo for another 10 days.
Also, Triple H and the Undertaker have already faced each other at Wrestlemania. It happened back at 17. I'm not a fan of repeating Wrestlemania matches as I've written about before. However, adding the career vs. streak stipulation makes it somewhat intriguing. Throwing Shawn Michaels into the mix will also give it a "Wrestlemania" feel.
Let's be honest, this year's event is looking pretty lackluster. But I will keep a positive outlook until AFTER Elimination Chamber when the card will be a little more concrete.
Back to the HHH vs. Taker possibility, if this is streak vs. career, would this really be the end for Trips? I know he's doing more behind the scenes and office work, so it would be interesting to see a WWE without Helmsley on camera. I guess he could tie things up with Sheamus in between the Chamber and prior to Mania. It's just hard to believe that HHH would go out this quickly after returning from his injury.
Again, this is all speculation, but at this time what other viable opponent does the Undertaker have for Mania? Ending the streak has become just as big as winning the world title.
Wade Barrett was a front runner, but it just doesn't feel like a Wrestlemania match. I just don't think he's ready and that's not a knock against Barrett.
Sting was in that discussion too. It's not going to happen. Sorry to burst the bubbles of Sting fans. I would love to see it myself too, but I'm being realistic.
Kane vs. Undertaker has been overdone to the max. It's already be at two Manias too.
I believe really, John Cena is the only guy on the roster that Taker hasn't had a feud with who could possibly end the streak. Or at least appear to be a threat to it. But I doubt that will happen as it appears we're going to see the Miz vs. Cena at Mania.
What do you think? Could this really be the end of Triple H's wrestling career? Who should face the Undertaker? And do you still think Sting will someone be involved in Wrestlemania?
No matter what, I'll be at the Georgia Dome ready to offer My 1-2-3 Cents here and on YouTube. Thanks for reading and watching.
