Punk says he should be main eventing this year’s WrestleMania. I should be defending my Championship at this year’s WrestleMania, but I’m not. Not for anything I did or didn’t do. I’m not, because of you! You stole from me what I hold most precious. You screwed me! You did. Punk points to a number of fans. You’re only screwing yourselves. If I’m not in the main event, I see no purpose for being at WrestleMania. What I just saw. What the world just laid their eyes on gives me that purpose. You took from me, and now I’m going to take from you. I’m going be beat Taker at WrestleMania. You like The Streak? You like those numbers 20-0, but when I mention a historic 434 days, you roll your eyes? The longest in decades. You want to get snarky when I say how good I am, and back it up, but none of you have done anything great in your lives. You want to roll your eyes at 434, I have a number for 20-1. That one is drug free, alcohol free, he’s straight edge, he’s best in the world, and he’s Punk. He says what he means, means what he says, deal with it.
Orton’s music right as Punk drops his mic. Orton says he wouldn’t be so confident, especially since I beat you at WrestleMania. You haven’t beat Taker at the show of all shows. I have. It was 8 years ago, I was a rookie. And I came this close. The thing is that I’m not a rookie, the most dangerous in that locker room. What I’d like to do is ask the WWE ‘Universe’ who they’d like to see face Taker at WrestleMania? Punk? The fans give heat. Or Orton? The fans pop for this. Orton and Punk stare at each other.
Big Show’s music hits and out he comes. He says they’re running off at the lip about facing Taker. What makes them think they can beat Taker. He also faced Taker, but he didn’t have this then. His WMD. If you’re going to face the Phenom and end his streak, you need to be more than a Viper, more that straight edge. You need to be a giant. This giant is going to knock that 20-0 into oblivion.
Sheamus’ music and out he comes. Sheamus says he’s listening to them all, but out of the four of them, he’s the only one who’d never faced Taker, so he’s never lost to him. It will take more than a WMD, GTS, or RKO to put him down. It might be that big boot, all the heart and a little luck to achieve the impossible. With the luck of the Irish, anything is possible.
EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! Vickie comes out in a mocha colored ruched dress that makes her backside look worse than Rikishi’s. Whoever defeats Taker and cements his legacy… EXCUSE ME! To decide who will face Taker to break The Streak, there will be a Fatal 4 Way tonight. The winner faces Taker at WrestleMania. All three in the ring stare, Punk had rolled out.
