I love this time of year. WWE will put on a tremendous show and set
the bar higher each year at Wrestlemania. Truth is stranger than
fiction. Putting matches together and letting them evolve
organically can cause twists and turns no one could imagine. The best
laid plans are never set in stone and even then there?s no telling
what will happen?
Many of us were saddened by the death of Paul Bearer. When CM Punk
interrupted The Undertaker during RAW and stole the urn at the end of
the show, people were outraged at the disrespect and lack of class by
WWE. Now the urn and Paul Bearer?s memory will be used to help the
build up for Taker VS. Punk at Mania. How could they!
They could because all involved from WWE to Taker and Punk understand
how much Paul Bearer meant to the business and his passion will never
die. What a fitting tribute to a man loved and respected by all to
play a role in one of the most important Wrestlemanias ever. I
realize saying ?this is the greatest, most important, super special
show of ALL time? is equivalent to ?this is the oldest I?ve ever been.?
Every Wrestlemania is supposed to be better than the last. I was
looking through some old Houston wrestling programs and was amazed at
how many ?Greatest Card EVER? were advertised. The words ?Greatest?
and ?Ever? should be used sparingly in my opinion. Too many times
?greatest ever? won?t live up to the hype.
Taker VS. Punk would have been special anyway. The element of losing
the man that had so much success along side The Phenom adds a new
dimension to this match. 20-0 is a perfect number. 21-0 is incredible
because of what that ?1? will now stand for. The emotion is real and
can be felt by those watching. What a better way to be a part of
something so real, so raw and so intense. I don?t know anybody who
can do it better than CM Punk and The Undertaker.”
