I see lots of people are getting in DAT CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!
I'm thrilled to be going to Mania, though I'm not too excited for Rock/Cena II and Brock/HHH which I'm sure will be the top two matches, I am very much looking forward to the possible Taker/Punk match... or hell any match Taker has. Truth be told if Taker doesn't end up being on the card, I may just sell my tickets and be ready for WM30.
In a perfect world though, the main event will be Rock/Punk for the WWE title (and they can throw Cena in there as well for all I care... won't hurt the match for me), Taker/Lesnar, Heel Orton/Sheamus, Mysterio/Cara and maybe Ryback/Show for the WHC if Sheamus/Orton isn't for that.
My heart tells me that Trips is going to work simply because he's reached "Big-Named-Part-Timer" status as has Taker. REALLY thinking that we're getting Trips-Lesnar LMS or something and that would be the reason that we haven't seen an LMS in quite some time. I think he should end his career with a loss to Punk to pay him back for that HORRIBLE booking decision at NOC 11, or just give him his win back in general. Trips-Punk @ Mania is my dream match but I honestly don't think we'll get it.

That's my card prediction honestly. My BRAIN tells me Trips wouldn't wrestle with that beautiful head of hair that he has. In all honesty it's probably HHH behind the Shield, leading to Ryback-HHH @ mania ....... I'm half serious on that one. If Ryback goes over HHH/Punk/Brock at Mania I would fucking RAGE. It honestly has the potential to begin another self-imposed exile from the current product.
I'd be all for Orton-Rock or Orton-Lesnar TBH. Orton is one of the big 3 CURRENT performers (alongside Punk and Cena) that deserves a big match with one of the part-timers. Punk's getting Rock at RR and probably Taker at Mania, while Cena is THE GUY anyways. Orton has reached the stage in his career where he's "dream match" worthy, and an Orton-Punk rematch would make me JIZZ.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Trips/Brock LMS could own but only if they went out there and legit went crazy with the spots and shit. Still think Brock is for Taker though. It would be stupid to put Punk in the streak match to me and I've already outlined why a million times. He's just not a big enough name or anywhere close to being credible enough for a match like that, especially if he either loses to Rock cleanly or needs interference to win a match again come the Rumble. There's no way anybody gains enough momentum to challenge for the streak in 2 months lol. For all those reasons, I don't ever see them booking Punk/Taker at Mania and I'll genuinely be shocked if it happens. They're retarded and all but they aren't that retarded.
Orton going against The Rock or Lesnar would be AWESOME! Problem is those idiots that book the shows don't even think of that possibility and are rather on some straight up bullshit. They really need to put him in 'dream matches' rather than have him wrestle the same generic midcard heels 5000 times a week.
And a LMS is probably the only way I could accept a Lesnar/Hunter rematch. Something about LMS matches and Hunter does well when he's in one as evidenced by those he's had with Flair, Orton and Jericho. Even the HBK one wasn't bad.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Heel Orton only works for me in his younger days tbh. I found him dull as dishwater in the Viper phase outside of the right gimmick match where he could play up his sadistic side. I just think his languid and passive style is just never going to click with me regardless of whether he's face or heel. Only way I can see me slightly caring about him is if they just stick him with Mysterio and Christian for an extended period of time since those are the two guys he seems to generally click with: though I'd prefer face Christian as opposed to the less than stellar matches we got after Christian turned.
I seriously don't see why they don't just give Bryan a run in the upper midcard, give him a title and let him work guys for 15 minutes plus. I mean christ the booking and creative juices are at an all time low, may as well at least try and give fans who look forward to good matches on PPV an incentive to purchase a PPV if they think Bryan will deliver. Mysterio also needs to get away from Cara asap and work Cesaro because that could be brilliant if they play it right.
EDIT: Rock/Orton sounds like one of the most dull feuds on paper I can imagine. I mean I get people may be tired of Punk's waning character which has been on repeat for 3 months now, but fucking Orton is hardly going to be the guy to make a feud captivating and he'd sooner be shown up by Rock than Punk would be: not to mention I can't forsee the day that current day Orton gets a better match out of anyone than Punk.
