I'm not sure I even bought WM 26 when it happened, largely b/c I am one of the (apparently) few folks that disliked the first HBK-Taker match.

I listened to what HHH told Taker recently, & largely agreed, except I feel it will be a better company (& overall business) when we know he's not coming back.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Honestly if they're going to have the streak go pass 20-0, they may as well have Taker retire at WM30 and have his last match then.

WM29- vs. Brock
WM30- vs. Cena

If Taker doesn't retire by WM30, then only god knows when he retires.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I always figured since a few years ago that he would not go out until 30, just cuz of the anniversary. But next year does seem likely but you never know. Vince might offer him enough money every year to keep him coming back for the next 5 years for all we know.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wondering what everybody's thoughts on the HHH-Orton match from WM 25 is ? General consensus is that it's shit, but I haven't seen it since it aired, in which I barely paid any attention too (VERY uninterested in wrestling at this stage in my life). Ratings anyone ?

Plus, anybody care to rank the Wrestlemania main events that they've seen ? I wouldn't be able to give a rating for the WM 8,9,11,16, and 25 matches. Might watch those when I get the chance.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was at Reliant Stadium and witnessed the disappointment that was HHH vs. Randy Orton WrestleMania 25 main event. The match was booked completely wrong. This should have been a no holds barred fight with brawling in the all around ringside and in the crowd. There should have been run ins from the McMahons and Legacy. Chairshots, stair shots/spots, ring bell shots, etc. Most importantly, Orton should have won the damn match. In word to describe how I felt after watching this match live was underwhelmed. However, I did enjoy it much more when I watched it on DVD a couple months later. It's still not WRESTLEMANIA 25 MAIN EVENT worthy.

Clearly, I was not there. However, I have a few comments.

Perhaps right.

Can definitely see that.

Yeah... Cause his career has been so hurt by that loss.

Yes, it was, I am sure. If 20 was "Where it all begins again", 25 was "where everything (good & bad) gets overrated".

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll agree the feud was worthy of the main event but how the match turned out was well below what I expected it to be quality -wise as the main event of WM25. Especially when the previous three WrestleManias had very strong main events.
