Lesnar vs Taker would almost be tragic. If people are expecting to see MMA style brawl in Taker vs Lesnar, the only thing they will receive is an upset. Did anyone here even watch the Summerslam match? half an hour of boring ass punches, the old Lesnar was technical and enjoyable to watch - belly to bellys, snap suplexes, german suplexes, gutbusters, powerbombs, spinebusters, powerslams the list goes on he used to go out and put on a show, now he's just plain boring with shoulder th...ts and pretend punches for a whole match.
And that means Taker has to carry him to a good match. And if WM 9, 11, 15, 19, and 22 tell us anything, it's that Taker is bad at carrying stiff opponents.
Though, I have no doubt so many people will still worship Taker/Lesnar at WM 29 even though it may be mediocre & one sided like their No Mercy 2002 outing (one of the best HIAC match ever my ass!).
If Lesnar/Taker wants to be a classic, Lesnar has to bring his old style back. That way, we can see rapid paced big man vs big man match like the ones Taker had at WM 12, 14, and 23.
I have to say, I agree 100%. I have no interest in seeing Taker/Lesnar. None at all. I'll disagree with you on the point of Cena/Lesnar...that match was very good, but HHH/Lesnar was boring and one dimensional. It tried to be a brawl, and a shoot style fight, but fell short, but never really became the "fight" that it was billed as.
At this stage in Taker career, he shouldn't be putting on a "fight" at Wrestlemania with Lesnar. He should be putting on another top notch, show stealing match.
