Undertaker will not lose to Lesnar.

WWE or the Undertaker will not allow someone who left WWE hanging high and dry 8 yrs ago to "go do something else" to end the biggest streak in modern wrestling history.

I have actually heard Wrestlemania plans on Lesnar either losing the WWE Title to the Rock or Undertaker pinning him.

They didnt seem to mind bringing the Rock back for a cream puff event and after not being around for 7 years and letting him win it.Kinda rubbed me the wrong way that Cena is in the house at least once a week whereas that candy-ass Rock comes back for one event and they let him win it;;so much for rewarding the hard work ethic..

Cena laid down to the Rock, because in the end it was good for business. Cena did not like having to do it, apparently, but knew that the cross-media attention would pay off bigger dividends down the road from a multimedia standpoint and future cross-media interest than him winning.

Lesnar brings none of that. He beats Undertaker, and he doesn't bring anything more than the UFC crowd coming to laugh and use it as a proving point that ultimate fighting is better than wrestling. Mainstream media doesn't care because we all already "know it".

I'm a fan of all the wrestlers,Cena is just another character playing a role, people i find colorful are Brodus Clay,Santino Marella,Rybach, AJ,Vince..
I dont get the negativity about liking any particular wrestler including Cena who is a hard working character in and out of the ring..

It's not the hard work that people don't like about Cena. It's the lack of moves and "trying TOO hard" role he seems to project.

Yeah, I'm sure Cena's one of the greatest guys in the world, but as the face of pro wrestling today...? Doesn't work for me. And I'm not the only one.

The old Hulkster made a career out of that flying leg drop move Cena is a bit more multi dimensional.
If disliking a character because of his lack of moves then the great Kali must be at the top of every ones list
As for many fans not liking Cena? it certainly is evident from the audience.Maybe its time for Cena to dump the face routine and go heel, maybe him and Lesnar could become the new badass duo.

Well that is another reason (or just part of the "trying TOO hard" I was talking about) that people don't like Cena the wrestler.

He's just... stale.

Undertaker asked Lesner if he wanted to come back and "Do it" during a UFC event before he left the UFC..

WWE's Undertaker, Brock Lesnar Exchange Words Following UFC 121 - YouTube

I mean either HHH beats Brock ghas a huge build up from that and has a Re-match at WM with Taker and ends his streak..

I can see Tripple H being the one that ends takers streak only after HHH and Brock have a huge fued and HHH gets back into wrestling every week or so before WM to get a huge push and rating boost leading up to the event and after taker Retires and HHH inducts him into the hall of fame and HHH himself Semi-Retires.

Nope. In wrestling circles, Cena and Hogan suffer from what is known as the "5 Moves of Doom".

Hogan: punch, kick, clothesline, big boot, legdrop

Cena: flying tackle, back suplex, fistdrop, AA, STF
