Here is 2 questions I have for you....#1 Since it's WrestleMania season obviously a lot of chatter surrounds The Undertaker, and rightfully so. The Undertaker IS WrestleMania to a lot of fans. For the past few years his match has been the best on the card, and is the main event regardless of placement on the card. That being said, I'm really doubtful we see him this year. The photos that surfaced last week of him at an NHL game show a fragile, beat up looking old man. He's given it his all at "The Show of Shows" for over 2 decades now, and I don't want to see him compete if he isn't healthy enough to give it a solid go. Honestly, him losing The Streak would bother me a lot less than seeing him come out and look like a beaten down shell of himself that struggles to put on a good match. That would hurt the mystique of The Undertaker more so then being 20-1. So maybe no Undertaker is for the best at this point, if he really isn't healthy and strong enough to be "The Undertaker.".....HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO: If Undertaker returns and wrestles CM Punk at WrestleMania XXIX, and Punk wins (which rumors say is Taker's wish) How would you respond? Immediately after seeing the 3 count take place??? To me Its Takers wish...nuf said lol he worked his arse off for over 20 years.....I think he can make whatever call he wants now. He deserves it. And be grateful that he chooses punk and not cena/ryback/sheamus

But my initial reaction after the 3 count?....my jaw would be on the floor in shock lol Takers streak should not end ever but it is Takers wish Question #2 is "What if..."

During Vince's "fight" with Paul Heyman on next week's Monday Night Raw Brock Lesnar interferes...and then...HHH music hits...HHH makes the save and gets on the mic...He goes on to say how he'd love to whip Lesnar's a** for messing with his family, but there's someone who'd love to kick his a** even more...and then...Lights go out....Gong....Taker appears...Points to Wrestlemania sign and immediately tombstones Lesnar. Think about it. Lesnar and Taker still have bad blood between them (going back to Lesnar leaving before Taker could get a win over him...and going back to Taker showing up at Lesnar's UFC event and asking, "You want to go?")...Maybe...just maybe. Too creative or would you rather see HHH vs Lesnar? I still think if Taker fights at WM it will be Punk but what if this happens..hmm :)


I like your scenario with Lesnar, better than I do Punk, and I don't care what Taker's wish is. The man deserves to be 2*-0. Him and Michaels were the only big names that stuck with Vince through the everyone else hopping to WCW. He deserves it.
--
I do think he shouldn't go if not 100%, especially given the epic shows him, HHH and Michaels have provided the past 4 years at WM. I don't think him and Punk could even live up to them, little more coming close to even topping them.
--
TBh, I thought he would retire once he hit 20. I saw reports though, that said he wanted to get to WM 30, but I just dont' think his body will let him anymore. He looked out of shape on the 1000th episode of RAW when he showed up. Taker, is and will always be, one of my favorites. Imo, hands down, the best big man, ever, in this history of the buisness.

Which dirt sheet did you get this from? Rumors are tumors man and dirt sheets are the worst. I highly doubt that Undertaker's streak is ended by Punk. But even if it actually happened, I still wouldn't give the dirt sheets the benefit. How the hell would they even find out such information. Undertaker hasn't even been around. We'll never know anyway. Even though I'm a big fan of CM Punk, 'Taker will be 21-0 if this match happens.

'Taker vs Lesnar makes no sense with the current angle with Lesnar attacking Vince. It's gonna be Lesnar vs Triple H II (Unfortunately). This WrestleMania is shaping up to be awful...

Pro Wrestling Torch and 1wrestling.com are good places to get wrestling news, and his situation was hypothetical. He wasn't saying that's in the plans.

Either way, I agree this WM is shaping up to be lackluster at best. Will still probably end up buying it. It is WM afterall. :lol:

Btw, Taker vs Lesnar would make sense, easily turned. Dirt sheets has nothign to do with his reference. You can look it up on youtube, but Taker was at Lesnar's UFC when he lost the title, and they were interviewing him when Lesnar walked by and brief words were exchanged.

Taker is a huge MMA fan.

I know all that. But Vince getting attacked has nothing to do with 'Taker. Triple H was the obvious savior for Vince.

Most defeintly. As a side note, that Punk/Cena match on RAW was PPV main event caliber. By far, their best match. Nice to see a clean finish for once. I do, however though, sense a triple threat match coming with Rock, Punk and Cena.
--
We'll see Monday I guess for sure. If they don't get something going with Punk for a 4 week build up, I don't see any other WM option for him, as I think Taker is sitting this one out at this point.

Punk would be the best choice because the other 3 can't do epic Taker-like matches.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Orton's problem he has 2 strikes against him in the wellness policy(Drug Test) and Taker has said he wants to lose the streak to Punk.I don't think the streak should ever be broken that is 1 sacred left in wrestling that Vince hasn't ruined yet :)

I agree. Personally, if I was Vince, I would tell Taker it doesn't matter what he wants, it will not be broken. Taker may think it good now, to let it end, but years from now, I think he will see the mistake in that.
--
Then again.. there is also a possibility this could just be a 'pot-stirrer' to get us all thinking for sure it's going to end with Punk. To ensure us fans have that 'what if moment' again.

Just saying, with Punk's mixing of real and not real, I better hear a Twin Towers reference in a promo prior to the Taker match. :lol: Throw in a mention of the Heart Punch for good measure.:hurah:

So, at this point, I haven't decided if i'm going to get Mania this year. The overall card looks bland, and at this point i'm even disappointed in the Punk/Taker build up. Maybe we've just been spoiled the past 4 years. Part of me though, may buy it just for the Taker match, simply to be there for the moment, if the dreaded (never should happen) moment does happen, not so much for the match itself.
--
Anyone else on the fence about getting it this year?

I'm on the fence also. And like you, I may only order it for the (slight) possibility that the streak may end. Rock/Cena Twice in a Lifetime isn't a selling point for me at all. I couldn't care less about HHH/Brock II (its Rematch-a-Mania guys!) And Jack Swagger completely ruins the legitimacy of the WHC match. I don't ever remember be so underwhelmed for 'Mania before...

Yeah, the whole Swagger gimmick is a turn off for me. Would much rather seen Ryback/Brock and Rock/Ziggler, Cena/Taker, and Punk/Orton. Look! I can book WM :D :lol:

Well, I can't comment on Honor or TNA, as I don't watch them. (TNA"s production value is just, bleah, for me), but I think the shield is at a crossroads. I'm pretty tired of seeing the same people involved with them, and really, their impact is very little and they've accomplished nothing. So.. either they evolve it, or break the shield up and move on.
--
Because right now, for me, they are an afterthought. As HHH once said in an interview he did, the true measure of a stable is what it did/did not do to elevate those within it. It's why I would say the 3 most successful stables of all time are the Horsemen, DX and Evolution, with the NWO 4th for the impact/originality at the time it was done.
