CM Punk VS Taker at WrestleMania would no doubt be huge. Even though I don;'t like CM Punk, I will admit that at this point on the current roster, he would have a ton to gain from ending the Takers streak. I don't know what WWE Wants to do with CM Punk, i'm guessing they want him to be THE heel of the WWE, and that would definitely be a great way to give him that heel push. I am on the other side with Punk though as far as thinking he still has alot to prove. He is talented, I don't think anyone can say he's not, but, he hasn't done much to impress me in any way. I wouldn't say he doesn't have any talent in any area, he's great at what he does, I do think he could use some work, but, everyone can always be better. Whoever would be the one that would end the Takes streak would definitely have to be the guy that can carry the WWE, and honestly, I don't see CM Punk as that guy. I do see a ton of potential in him, but, I think at this point, he's an upper mid-carder at best.
I'm not in the WWE, so, I obviously wouldn't know anything about how Taker feels about CM Punk., I wouldn't see Taker as the kind of guy that would actually fake an injury to get out of a match though, regardless of who it is. I do agree that he did the right thing by wanting to see CM Punk pushed down. I don't know him, he's probably a really cool dude, but, with the way WWE pushes superstars, i'm thinking maybe Taker wanted to help [Punk by having him pushed down. I know that sounds dumb, but, think about it. No-one can say that Taker isn't a legend in the WWE, that he's not someone you should talk to about how you can be better in the ring and get over with the fans, I think Taker has a good understanding of it. Maybe he saw the potential in CM Punk, and didn't want to see him go down the John Cena toilet. Maybe he wanted to see WWE actually push him right instead of shoving him down our throats and smacking us in the face with him every chance they get.
I am curious what Taker does think about as far as his streak goes. I'm not positive, but, I thought I read somewhere on here once that Taker said he wouldn't mind ending the streak just as long as it's the right superstar. I think I also read that most superstars won't do it for whatever reason. Whether it be respect, or just not thinking they have the talent to hold a m match with Taker. I think I read somewhere Randy Orton was originally supposed to beat him at WreestleMania, but obviously didn't. At the time, yeah, he would have had a ton to gain, he would have been THE heel of the WWE. Now though, he wouldn't have much to gain from it. CM Punk would be a great choice, but, I still don't see him as the guy that can carry the company though.
