This is going to be a very unpopular post but I'd like to see the Taker streak end. It has lost a lot of it's luster since he became Taker Claus and works one day a year. I really think it's fucking stupid TBH. Ok you don't want to be a full-timer or even part-timer anymore. I get it. You are old and your body is beat up. It happens. So fucking retire.
Now I love Taker. Probably in my top 10-15 favs of all time. I remember marking like a motherfucker in the 5th grade when he tombstoned Hogan on a chair and won the Winged Eagle (RIP) at Survivor Series in 1991. I have found myself wanting the streak to end though the last few years. Lets be honest half of the matches during the streak suck. I think Taker should have lost to Edge at WM24 and that should have been earlier in the card with HBK V Flair closing the show. I not only say that as an Edge fan but I think it would have meant a lot to Edge's character which is very underrated.
Love the match or not but the end of the HitC was perfect. I loved it and don't really do the whole star rating thing but I do enjoy reading reviews of matches. If I had to give it a star rating I'd say somewhere in the 4-4.5 family. I was very entertained. I think Taker needs to walk away though. Why come back after two epic matches (again my opinion) with HHH in back to back years? Nothing left to prove. But IF he comes back for WM29 I'd like to see him in Survivor Series as well since thats where his career started.
I have had this Survivor Series idea for a few weeks. Some sort of old school elimination match with new guys V older guys would be badass. Like Punk, Bryan, Brock, Cody Rhodes, Barrett (Im expecting a big push and for him to be champ once healthy) and Cena V Austin, HHH, Angle (yes that Angle), Rock, Foley and Taker would be badass. If not Angle maybe Christian or Kane. Yes I know you have faces and heels on the same team but they could come up with some angle (no pun intended) where this would work and work well. This would also build my Mania 29 dream card of....
Austin V Punk (If no Austin or Angle are around I'd love to see a Punk V Bryan Iron Man Match but that wont happen so maybe a title unification match...Bryan would have to win the title back obviously and I really think Punk will be champ again at mania next year but will drop it in the next couple weeks or months and win it back around Royal Rumble time)
Rock V Brock (I really dont care if this has a title up for grabs or not....this would be a great rematch from a good match 10 years ago)
Angle V Bryan (I Quit match)
Cena V HHH (Retirement match...with HHH losing)
Taker V Barrett (who I expect to be a mega heel by then)........if Taker retires thn just remove Taker and Barrett from the Survivor Series match above and make it a 5 on 5 instead of 6 on 6
Foley V Cody Rhodes (No DQ match....I could see Foley doing for Rhodes career what he did for HHH or Orton and think this could be a great match if Foley is in shape and Foley has said on twitter he has one "big" bump left in him.....why not a HOF induction in his backyard and one last hardcore match?)

Last I checked, this was not a forum/thread for anyone (even me) to discuss me.
Fair enough & likewise. I try not to waste a lot of time on what people think of me. At the end of the day that is not something I can control. I just do me. If people think I'm cool thats awesome. If they think I suck oh well. I'm not for everyone. Same goes for you. Something I am able to do is get along with someone and be respectful even if I disagree with them. That sets me apart I guess but like I said earlier Im a tough person to upset. Especially here.
I guess if you don't care what people think about you and you don't care if you get along with someone why would you waste so much time talking with people about a topic as unique as pro wrestling with people you either don't care for or don't give a shit what you have to say? That comes off like you are looking for attention but if I'm off my bad homey.
My take on why people are wanting to talk about you is just the way you come off. You come off very negative and like you shit on everything. Maybe that is accurate? Maybe that is just the way you are? Hell if I know. This is what out 4th time talking with each other. I don't have enough to go off of. I try not to form opinions on people/things without lots of fact.
