Lesnar/Taker HIAC sucks.
You are out of your ever loving mind. Outside of the original at Badd Blood 1997, Lesnar/Taker NM 2002 is the second best cell match ever IMHO. It really doesn't get much better than that, I have it as a top 20 match in WWE history. Taker bled all over the fucking place and Lesnar was just an inhuman animal for the majority of the bout. And Heyman gives one of the best manager performances I've ever seen, especially considering it's a freaking Cell match and he has no obvious way of impacting the match. Hell, even Heyman bleeds in that one. Blood doesn't make a match great, but when it's combined with the brutality and hard hitting in an already all time great match, it can put it over the top. In this case, seeing blood pouring out of Takers head while Lesnar continues to physically maul him is a visual fans had never ever seen before. Nobody beats up the Deadman, nobody, but Lesnar came in and did the impossible. He took down Taker in a gimmick match that was created specifically for the Phenom.
