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 didn't know, such sad news. A true class guy from all accounts outside of work, and a wonderfully done manager.

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.

Was going through WWE.com's Top 10 character changes, and had to pause a moment on the Johnny Polo to Raven. :eek2::eek2:

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:

Currently, who is the better faction? WWE has The Shield, TNA has Aces & 8's and ROH has S.C.U.M.

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.

Aces & 8's does. I don't have access to ROH and I can't stand WWE. So I'm a bit biased. :D

Aces and 8's has Bischoff and Wes Briscoe that rules them out.The shield had very impressive matches at elemination chamber and Raw the next night.I've been a Dean Ambrose fan for a few years.Would like to see Kassuis Ohno in the shield.I like Corino and Steen can't stand Jacobs so I can't say s.c.u.m.So I go with shield.

Hrm, I just might have to pass too. Really, the only reason I would get it is to confirm Taker losing/not losing. While I don't want the streak broken, part of me also wouldn't want to miss the unthinkable moment of him letting it happen. (which disappoints me Vince would let it happen, regardless of Taker's wishes).

$70?!?!?!?!?!

The last time I paid for WM was some years ago but it was $39 as I recall - and all the other PPVs were $30.
