I'd mark out for Undertaker/Rock about as much as I'd mark for Kurt Angle having a 60 minute Iron Man match with Jeff Hardy.

I do like the idea of the RR winner going after the streak though. I mentioned it myself a couple of months back. Would be a cool idea for everyone to still think the winner is going to challenge for a title, but then he can swerve people and say the only title he wants is the title of streak ender or something. But then what does that do for the WWE and WHC if someone doesn't want to wrestle for them? I dunno. Would maybe only work with the right person. Say, Lesnar. Next year.

Sorry to go off the Taker subject but why does Wrestlemania 28 on DVD come out a month in the UK after it does in the US?

Hunico v Tyson Kidd, Superstars 04/05/2012

Opening mat sequences were smooth and I loved the Lucha sequence where Hunico has Kidd in the gory bomb and brings him into a pinning position on the mat and Kidd manages to hook the arms and transition into a sunset flip counter. There was also a nice moonsault armdrag off of the ropes which Hunico sold nicely and it was nice to see him constantly being outmatched in the beginning. Transition spot was nice in the urgency Hunico showed but the commercial kills whatever workover he did as they come back and he's working a nice submission but you're dying to see what he busted out inbetween: they did do a nice spot however where Kidd goes for a sunset flip but the left arm gives out and Hunico immediately goes back to work. Hunico taking taking the Jerry Estrada bump but landing on his feet and then doing some Arn Anderson esque 'you see that shit, I'm too smart to fall on my ass' schtick leading into Kidd sneaking up and hitting a running kick off the apron was super, but the finishing stretch wasn't terribly dramatic bar one sweet counter out of a tilt a whirl. Finish was good in setting up a rematch but I was just wanting Kidd to incorporate more spots around his weakened limb, like he has this set up spot where he's on the ropes, kicks his opponent and backflips onto the apron to set up a springboard....and you're just wanting him to sell that left arm when he's transitioning.

Kidd's a nice smooth worker but I'm not sold on him yet as anything more than a guy capable of some impressive visual shit, I mean Bourne's equally as good at that sort of thing but he works hard to bump and sell his ass off inbetween the awesome visual stuff. Good but I wouldn't say essential viewing.

**1/2

Pretty much about what I expected of him, especially HIAC. I've some people say its either a match you give the full 5 or you completely hate, and that's something I can agree with. Its definitely either going to be the pinnacle of WWE Main Event wrestling in terms of the atmosphere, the spectacle, the drama, emotion and storytelling to some, or its going to be an overbooked cliche cheesy affair with a good story with average execution.

I thought Kane/Orton was better than that rating though, it was nothing blowaway great, but for two guys I actively can't watch in great doses it did a surprisingly good job of holding my attention which wasn't helped after the disastrous opening with Bryan/Sheamus. That being said I'm still of the belief they should have worked a NO DQ match since they seem to have a good formula as evidenced by their Smackdown match getting praised as being a step above the Wrestlemania match.

So you wouldn't be delighted to see Taker kill Rock at a Mania?

Next year I want either Rock, Cena or Lesnar vs. Undertaker. Any one of those would be epic.

I'd say Rock/Lesnar is still their best bet. I mean Lesnar was one of the top 5 Box Office Draws the past few years, so imagine an undefeated WWE Champion in Lesnar taking on Rock in the Meadowlands with Rock chasing his first WWE championship in a decade. I mean shit if that doesn't draw then what in the fuck else could? Normally I'd prefer that match to be non title and give the title match to two up and comers to steal the show, but hell Rock in a title match would surely get more buys with people then expecting him to be back at least until he drops the belt, at which point they really need to have built up someone like Punk to dethrone Rock in a marquee match to cement a new star.

I still really like the prospect of Cena going after the Streak to prove to himself he still has 'it' after losing to Rock and Lesnar (whenever they lock up which in a just world will be at Summerslam), people could buy it as the biggest threat to the Streak with Cena not going to lose 3 big matches in a row and Taker getting closer and closer to retirement.

Meanwhile, I'd be hoping for Mysterio/Hunter... I've wanted to see that match for so long and by the looks of it, we may never witness it.

I just don't see them doing H/Rey while Hunter's face. The dynamic would be infinitely better with him as a heel. I'd like Mysterio/Cara and H/Punk instead.

Not sure if Brock Vs Rock in a title match would happen since I doubt either guy is gonna extend their 1 year contract beyond WM 29. I hope Lesnar DOES (assuming he's still fucking awesome), but eh, don't see it happening, so a match for the title between 2 guys likely to leave afterwards doesn't seem like something that would happen. Undertaker Vs Brock would be the match I want to see most (fuck The Rock, and not too interested in Undertaker/Cena. Its kinda like Undertaker/Sting for me; I get WHY people would want to see it, but I just don't care), then I dunno, Cena Vs... someone and Punk Vs Rock? DO NO WANT a rematch between Rock and Cena, not after the crap fest they had this year. Punk going over Rock at WM would be epic. Anyways, who knows exactly what I'd want for next year. Someone might have one hell of a fucking year and end up featured in a big match that changes up any potential plans/anything I'd want to see etc.
