Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com previewing tonight's RAW. During the blog, Ross discussed whether now is the time for the Undertaker's streak to end.
"Many fans suggest that it is 'time' for WWE's longest running, major star to 'go down.' Mother Nature has not been kind to the Demon of Death Valley has he has had his share of serious injuries that were brought upon by a fierce, in ring style that featured a plethora of non, big man moves for a near 7 foot, 300 pounder. Not to mention, a hellacious road schedule for many, many years that are especially challenging to maintain for anyone much less a man the size of Taker. Airplane seats or normal automobiles are not made for mammoth men of Taker's proportions...
"It is easy to fathom that Punk will wrestle Undertaker with an enhanced sense of urgency at WM29 but will that be enough to hang the only loss at WrestleMania on the all time great? Some speculate here on our Q&A's and via Twitter @JRsBBQ that they think that if Taker loses at WM29 that he will hang it up. I don't know abut that but I do know that the day that the Undertaker feels that he can't be 'The Undertaker' that he will fade into the darkness and not attempt to perpetuate what once was as so many of his peers have embarrassingly attempted to do. The Deadman has too much pride.
"So, does Taker being 20-1 at WrestleMania's adversely affect his legacy? Not in my view. However, does beating the Undertaker at WrestleMania essentially make Punk even more special? Absolutely.
"A Punk win at WM29 would essentially punch Punk's WWE HOF ticket and whether the outspoken Punk would admit it or not, being inducted into the WWE HOF is an amazing honor even for the most devout of individuals."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including more on Punk vs. Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and if he will accept Triple H's challenge tonight, Chris Jericho and more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
