Taker could be done but I dunno, I always saw WWE hyping the fuck out of his retirement, i.e the ultimate videeo packagaes, highlight reels and then some dramatic ending where he's carried away by Druids or some gothic/eerie act we've come to associate with The Deadman character. Somehow him having the quiet Austin retirement where they don't actually reference him being done just doesn't sound how WWE would end his career.
I've still not even grasped what this era is that's ending? The attitude era wrestlers? The era of two men who in the words of HHH 'are far and beyond the other guys in the back'? I mean they've never even talked about what Era supposedly ended that night at all.
I took it as the last big Attitude era match that could happen.
