As long as the streak continues he MUST come back year after year to defend it, to test wrestler after wrestler to see who can truly topple The Phenom.
Cena vs. Taker could still happen this year. Dolph says he's cashing in the following week when Rock comes back. Rock returns to RAW in Jan '13, confronts Punk, thinking he'll face him at the Rumble. They get into a brawl leaving Punk exhausted. World Heavyweight Champion comes out because Dolph said he's cashing-in; Punk's still yet to get up. Dolph runs out and instead of going for Show, he pins Punk because Vickie as boss allows him to choose which title he wants instead. Before Rock can come out, Dolph is Champion. During Punk's rematch on RAW, Rock interferes. At Rumble Punk costs Rock the title thus making the match for WrestleMania. Ryback wins the Rumble and challenges Ziggler for the title - first time in years that both champion and challenger are main event novices. The strong non-title matches can make up for the lack of established star power in the WWE Title match. Hunter and Brock set up their rematch easily. Miz (or Orton if he's still on WWE's push list) can win a Chamber to challenge Sheamus who by this time is World Champion again. As for how Cena vs. Undertaker is set up, Cena says that for the past few years he's seen two men that he's beaten in the main event of WrestleMania before both challenge Taker and lose in the defining matches of their respective careers. He says last year he thought his match with Rock would be his defining match, but he lost. He says he's won both titles at WrestleMania, and while he loves being The Champ, after 12 reigns he needs to step back and let a new generation establish themselves before challenging for the title again. He basically says he wants to become what Undertaker has become, almost beyond the title (but not actually saying that as not to bury the title). And the only way of doing that is to end the streak.
