Why is The Undertaker vs. C.M. Punk occurring at the biggest event of the year at WrestleMania 29 next month? Punk has earned Undertaker's respect, which is a major endorsement in the WWE locker room.
"C.M. Punk is a class act, and he's got it," Bearer exclusively told PWTorch editor Wade Keller. "I didn't meet Punk until I went back for that six-month run (2010-2011). I had watched him on television, of course, but I had never met him in-person before.
"I'll never forget myself, Undertaker, Big Show, and a couple of other guys standing over in the corner just shooting the breeze. C.M. Punk came walking by and Taker says, 'Percy, have you ever met Punk?' I said, 'No, I havent.' Taker called him over there and he's very, very respectful to our business and to me for having never met me before.
"Taker introduced me to him and Taker's exact words to me were: 'Punk - he's one of us.' That was how I was introduced to C.M. Punk by The Undertaker. For him to say that about a talent, that just means everything in the world. And to say, 'He's one of us,' that just meant something to that little group that was there."
Wouldnt be surprised, but Taker is gonna get the final say on that.
Can only see them having Punk say that Bearer was the power of the Undertaker, and now Undertaker doesnt have that power anymore and he'll end the streak at WM. Leads to a feel good moment with Taker winning and posing with the urn post match.
