Who Could End 'Taker's 'Mania Streak?, Backstage WWE News

The creative team discussed the subject of Undertaker's WrestleMania winning streak last week during a booking meeting. They believe it should only be ended by a superstar on the rise, not an established star. The general feeling is that it will never end but Vince McMahon isn't completely opposed to it. If it's ever going to end, he doesn't want to waste it on a "maybe" star, only someone that everyone can agree on being a top star in the company for a number of years.

Some officials are leery on who to use in the role due to the likes of Brock Lesnar & Bobby Lashley bolting from WWE. In regards to who can possibly end the streak, a few names have been discussed, but nobody everyone can agree on. However, the name most talked about was none other than Ted DiBiase as they believe he can be the next Randy Orton. McMahon is said to be very high on him, but doesn't feel it could be done by next year with him. One long-term idea brought up is that a few years from now, DiBiase's father can be brought in because his storyline introduced Undertaker to WWE.

As noted last week here on the website , WWE is said to be considering moving the 24/7 service from On-Demand subscription to its own television channel. The company is currently doing a marketing study that will more than likely present evidence to cable companies that people will switch from satellite or switch to satellite based on the ability to see the channel as a free service.

This is something Vince McMahon has discussed doing for years now having a WWE television channel. The key is for the channel to get national clearance for old programs and would be a great back-up plan if USA doesn't want wrestling anymore and if MyNetwork doesn't turn out well.
