As for WM29:
Rock/Cena II should be a good match, although I can't say I'm excited about the feud in the least. Nothing's changed from last year aside from the WWE Title being in the mix. The only new thing they'll have to play off of is the fact Rock beat Cena last year. The promos are probably going to be mediocre for the most part. I don't even have faith in Rock to carry this feud on the mic after his mic work against Punk during their feud. Hopefully they make Rock's defeat as painless as possible and make Cena's reign as quick as possible.
Taker/Punk I'm expecting to be MOTN, and maybe even MOTY. Taker in his match over the weekend looked fantastic and I have no doubt he'll produce a classic with a CM Punk in his peak. But much like Rock/Cena, it's not so much the match will be bad, but the feud leaves a lot to be desired. Where could they possibly go with Taker/Punk? How are any of us supposed to believe Punk is a credible threat to the streak when he lost to Cena clean, not to mention losing to Rock on back-to-back PPV's? Well tbh, I don't really care how much of a kayfabe threat Punk looks to the streak because I don't believe anyone except Cena is a threat to the streak anyway. As long as they can suspend my disbelief in the match itself, that'll work for me. Maybe Punk pulls out the Pepsi Plunge to try and end the streak after 3 or so GTS'? Fuck if I know, but out of the big 3 matches, this one is the one I'm looking forward to the most by far, even though it should've been Taker/Lesnar with Punk either facing HHH or being put in Rock/Cena for a triple threat.
And then we have the match, the feud, out of the big 3 matches, that I'm least looking forward to. Lesnar/HHH. Fuck me, this is going to suck unless they let these two men kill each other, which shouldn't happen anyway as Brock should be the only one doing the killing. Brock looked incredibly weak on Raw compared to how he usually looks, getting completely dominated by HHH. Lesnar should be dominating HHH each and every week they get into any type of physical interaction with HHH battling inside himself whether he truly believes he can beat Lesnar. HHH should for once be a true underdog and act like it for the feud and match. They should build up the match as HHH trying to redeem himself and maybe on the last week before Mania, he pulls out the sledgehammer, driving it into Lesnar's stomach to get the upperhand and showing he does have an ace in the hole and maybe a glimmer of hope of beating Lesnar.
Then at Mania, HHH does his entrance with the hammer and rather than do his usual water-spit, goes right after Lesnar's stomach with it to take him down, and from there they can have an evenish match with HHH exploiting Lesnar's weakness early on in the match, and picking at it all throughout, while Lesnar looks like even more of a beast still able to fight toe to toe with HHH, even in his weakened state. Then when it looks like HHH might defeat Lesnar with a second or third pedigree, have Lesnar hit a second or third F-5 to finish HHH off, and crushing any hope of there being able to fight toe-to-toe with Lesnar. From there they can do Lesnar/Rock at WM30, have Lesnar destroy Rock and have Taker beat Cena, and then Taker/Lesnar at WM31 if Taker's still gonna be able to go, or Lesnar/Ryback or Sheamus to massively put them over.
But instead, we're going to see HHH being able to fight Lesnar one-on-one anyway and beat him each time leading up to Mania, showing no signs of weakness until Lesnar gets the standard heel control segment on HHH in the Mania match, which HHH will come back from and win anyway. Lesnar's momentum will be totally crushed, HHH will get his win back, and no good comes out of it unless you're someone who hates Lesnar.
The match could be great at the very least if they make it a street fight or something, but if they don't, it'll be Summerslam 2.0, even worse though.
I'm watching you...
