Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
If we can't get it at Mania then Summerslam would be a good second alternative, its time WWE really made Summerslam feel like a big event again rather than slapping the tag 'Biggest party of the Summer' and then only announcing like 4 matches the week before the event. Remember when Summerslam was almost like a mini Mania? I recall coming back from Holiday at the start of August and immediately checking WWE.Com for Raw and SD recaps to see what matches were set: Michaels/HHH, Rock/Brock, Benoit/Orton, Taker/Orton, Elimination Chamber etc etc. You had a good 5 weeks of build and a good 2-3 big main events and it felt like a massive show...then after 2004 it really began to decline in terms of build and depth in the card.
Lesnar/Cena should headline this year's event, really try and get a monster buyrate compared to what they've been doing since 2009 (sure its decreased drastically by the year) and then build a solid undercard underneath that marquee main event. Punk/Henry, Bryan/Sheamus etc etc.
EDIT: Cal I only base my view Rock is winning the title off of the belief he's gonna be around now when WWE needs him. Apparently he's switched management or something which has made this return to WWE more possible than before and I've gotta believe they'd be prepared to book him in at least one title match along the line. Lesnar so far is a 1 year deal according to everyone so him going against Taker probably wouldn't work unless they circulate rumours closer to the date that's he's agreed an extension etc so people buy him sticking around, otherwise people would probably expect a Taker win. At least in a hypothetical Rock/Brock title match you know that even if Brock does leave then by default Rock is likely to be available to work beyond WM29. Plus 1 year undefeated Brock v undefeated Rock sells itself.
