Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
vs Ricky Steamboat @ GAB 89. Fucking AWESOME match.
I don't take the "Punk" rumors with as much legitimacy as I take the "Lesnar" ones simply because of the fact that Lesnar HIMSELF came out and said there was beef, and it sounds like a personal/family thing which makes me wonder. Couple that with the fact that Taker CHOOSES his opponents at Wrestlemania and seemed to have picked HHH the past two years because it's somebody he could trust to steal the show. I think if Taker called up Vince or vice versa within the last few months with the discussion of who he will face at Mania, Taker said without a doubt "Punk", or perhaps even "Cena".
I think they brought Lesnar in with the intentions of having him work a program with the Rock at Mania. Rock and Lesnar get along, and Rock needed an opponent for Wrestlemania XXIX. Brock is the biggest possible name for him to face, Rock LOVES the box office, so there we go.

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
