I would love to see more work from these two maybe involving the Los Matadors.

-Bray Wyatt John Cena feud recap
-Good Undertaker Wrestlemania package highlighting his older age being a disadvantage. Brock Lesnar is put over well in this promo video.
-Paul Heyman has arrived with a mic. Heyman introduces himself, and he is the advocate of the beast incarnate, conqueror Brock Lesnar. Heyman acts scared of The Undertaker. Heyman says Taker will get disrespected by Lesnar at Wrestlemania, so Heyman will not disrespect the Taker tonight. Heyman has to deliver a message and puts down Texas causing the crowd to boo. Heyman says he will be brief with the message. Heyman says the most prestigious commodity in the WWE is the World Championship. The streak is of equal if not greater value at Wrestlemania. 21-0 is unthinkable in Heyman's opinion. Heyman is not suggesting or predicting the streak will end. No, Lesnar says the streak will end and that is a fact. Lesnar will conquer the streak.
-Undertaker's music hits as Heyman is ready to escape. The Undertaker appears behind Heyman who looks mortified. Heyman pleads and begs. Taker goozles him not caring. Taker says one reason Heyman will walk out of here tonight. Taker wants Heyman to personally deliver a message to Lesnar. When the Undertaker gets to New Orleans he is going to slay the Beast. Once that is done, he is going to take his rotting corpse and throw it to the eternal pits of hell. Undertaker will be on Raw next Monday night if Lesnar does not understand the message.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Another good main event with a great tag team match. The tag team match was match of the night as you may have guessed. The divas match was okay, but could have been better if it was a singles match. Titus and Show deserved more time with Taker's promo ending about 3 minutes before 9. They also mentioned a four way tag match that will determine the number 1 contenders for the tag team championship. Sadly, I missed which teams. Good show, and thanks to anyone who read the recap!
