My question to you guys is what is going to be the reasoning or logic behind this match being made? The last 4 Taker matches at WM have had big reasoning behind them. HBK/Taker part 1 was all about HBK trying to do the one thing he has never done at WM being Mr. WM he wanted to end the Deadman's streak. HBK/Taker part 2 was a means to an end, getting HBK's retirement match. HHH/Taker part 1 was The Last Outlaws match, HHH trying to one up HBK, trying to do something his best buddy couldn't. HHH/Taker part 2 was billed as the End of an Era, and essentially it was. Probably should have been Taker's last match and some believe HHH's as well. Still there was reasoning that made since behind that match as well as the previous 3. There was something to be gained by all 3 men that share a rich history with one another. There is absolutely nothing for Punk to gain by losing to Taker. There is even less for Taker to gain by beating Punk. Some people believe that there doesn't have to be a reason or story behind the match, that the Streak and Taker just showing up is enough, well it's not for me, not even close. I want to know the why's, I want there to be a build, I want there to be a somewhat logical reason why these two want to wrestle one another at the biggest wrestling show of the year. So please someone answer that question for me.
Ok, here's a storyline idea off the top of my head: as you say, Punk feels left out and disrespected. He is odd man out, won't be headlining Mania. Only thing left to do is upstage Rock/Cena. "Forget the belt, I'm the real champ anyways. And the real champ is going to do something noone else has EVER done. I will prove I am the best in the world by beating the Undertaker!"
But his boasting is cut short, when (despite Punk not really expecting him to accept), the Undertaker appears in the ring, chokeslams him, and points to the sign.
