Somewhere during the last ten years The undertaker’s WrestleMania undefeated streak became an important part of that show. It’s easy to understand why. The number of appearances ‘Taker has made in the WrestleMania series is remarkable. That he’s one every one of his matches (the first by DQ, which I always think tarnishes his accomplishment a little) is even more impressive.

It’s The Streak that’s the topic of today’s episode. Amongst the things we touch on are potential opponents, how much longer we think ‘The Phenom’ will wrestle, and, of course, whether or not anyone will ever end the thing, with the natural accompanying question of whether they should.
Also discussed is the strained relationship between commentators and wrestlers’ monikers. The natural accompanying topic to that is the strained relationship between Michael Cole’s brain and Michael Cole’s mouth. That gets discussed too. At some point we’ll probably do an entire episode on Cole. He’s a fascinatingly banal and contradictory figure.
