Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion
Rock and Taker had a few good to great matches 98 to 99. RAW in October 98 IIRC was good, KOTR 99 was great, when Orton and HHH used the early finisher concept in their WM25 match, the first thing that came to my mind was Rock/Taker at KOTR. NWO 2002 was decent and they had more TV matches in 2000. At SVS 98 there's a funny spot where Rock is giving Taker a DDT and then mocking his Deadman sit up, then mocking Bearer for being as he said "a big fat piece of shit!" lol. Good times. Anyway, they never booked for a program together because it was never the right time, always a problem between injuries, babface/heel dynamics or bigger matches. They can definitely work a WM main event, the story is already there from the story of this year's Rock/Cena match with Rock saying that he needs to beat Cena to be the GOAT.
But with that said, Rock/Brock is more attractive than Rock/Taker IMO and that's what it should be, along with Taker/Cena as the co-main event. In the past Vince had a philosophy that at WM, he wants only new and fresh matches, preferably first time ever. Then the Rock/Austin series came out, broke records and worked so well that it meant to happen again. But other than that, I hope Vince goes to what he said in the past and don't give us the same matches at WM every year, especially when both results are the most predictable of all time.
