What could have been. There have been all kinds of concepts and ideas throughout WWE’s history, but only a handful of them have truly become iconic. Those are the ideas that are the most remembered and often had the biggest impact. One of these was the Undertaker’s Streak, which involved a who’s who of opponents. Now we are hearing about a match Undertaker wanted but didn’t get to have.
During a recent edition of the Kurt Angle Show, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle revealed that Undertaker wanted to face him at WrestleMania 22 in 2006. However, Vince McMahon shot the idea down as he did not want Undertaker to defeat Angle but also did not want the Streak to be broken. As a result, Angle defeated Undertaker the previous month at No Way Out instead.
They did have chemistry together. Check out how Angle and Undertaker went:
Opinion: This makes sense as the match was a bit one, but maybe not something McMahon would have wanted to run at WrestleMania. It’s a good example of how to keep track of what is coming later while also keeping track of what is going on in the near future. McMahon understood that he wanted something later so he couldn’t go with what Undertaker wanted at the moment. Everything wound up working out rather well though and that is what matters.
What did you think of McMahon’s reasoning? Who should have broken Undertaker’s Streak? Let us know in the comments below.
