You don't kill off the villain in the first scene. I'll never buy into Lesnar the way I did before ER because he can be beaten. It makes all the difference in the world.
Undertaker's never defeated him. That still gives Lesnar the edge going into this feud. And honestly I feel like people are making such a big deal out of that loss that even if Lesnar put on the performance of a lifetime from now to WM they'd still complain about that one match. Pardon me that 15 seconds of the match Cena was winning.
I think I just got over it fairly quickly. I'll still be highly interested in Taker/Lesnar regardless.
