We’re still on the way to Summerslam and that means King Booker is going to need an opponent. Last week’s show was pretty much a two hour version of the Great American Bash so things are kind of starting over again this week. Hopefully things get a little better, as it’s time to start setting up the next pay per view. Let’s get to it.

Daniel Bryan/Undertaker/Sting questions


Ok, the rumors have Vince wanting a big moment for Bryan at Wrestlemania, so the whole stadium does 'YES' in unison. Some questions:

1. I think the only three realistic opponents for that to happen would be HHH/Brock/Undertaker. Out of those three, which one with your 'mark' hat would you most like to see?
2. If the undertaker is Bryan's Wrestlemania opponent, do you Bryan would be a good choice to end the streak at this stage?
3. If Bryan does end the streak, would that make future wrestlemania matches for Undertaker vs Brock/Cena less appealing do you think?
4. Whilst i have no appetite for Sting vs Undertaker at Wrestlemania, i do think a fit and healthy Sting wrestling for a year could be a boon to the WWE. Matches vs Brock/Batista/Cena/Orton/Punk/HHH/Bryan would be fresh match ups, and depending on the related stories, could also be good matches/draws for some B-level ppvs. Do you agree?

1.  Probably Undertaker, but it won't happen.
2.  He's one of the few where it wouldn't be wasted because he's seemingly bulletproof at this point.  
3.  I think if the streak did end, Undertaker would just call it a career.
4  Sting has very limited appeal, and a big match at Wrestlemania is just about it.  TNA pretty much killed his drawing power by making him a regular guy instead of a special attraction.
