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.

I'm all for Rock/Lesnar. I'd prefer it to Lesnar/Undertaker, but Rocky/Undertaker tops it for me.

Yeah, those matches would be pretty neat too.

Wonder if they will try and do anything big for Survivor Series this year too. The thing about having guys like Rock and Brock back means if they WANT, they can really try and bring back the prestige of their "big 4" events. Team Lesnar Vs Team whoever he is going to face at WM would be cool.

Man, its amazing how many matches I can think of that I'd want to see now that just Brock Lesnar is back . Oddly enough there really isn't anything I'd want to see Rock do. I know I'm a Rock hater, but damn, I just can't think of anything that would get me that excited. At all.

I'd love them to do Brock/Punk at SS for the belt after Brock wins at Summerslam, Brock wins and then holds the belt going into Wrestlemania and build to the Rock match. Of course that begs the question does Rock show up and win the Rumble, or do they try and go mainstream and have live confrontations between the two to build the match as something personal?

Long term I'd love Punk to be the one who ultimately comes out looking like a star by being the one to beat Rock if he does indeed get the title for one last time. Having these big draws back is great for giving the business a much needed shot in the arm and making a ton of money but they really need to cement a permanent star from all these Box Office stars returning. I guess they'd have a job making Punk look like he could beat someone of Rock's size given who he's been stuck feuding with but then again that's why they have writers.

Brock/Ziggler and Brock/Mysterio need to happen, Ziggles might actually die. And fuck if Bourne hadn't fucked up with weed and then potentially jeopardised his career with this foot injury could you imagine Brock/Bourne? That would be 100x better than any of the Gowen and Kendrick squashes which were awesome.

Has that Edge dvd been released in the US yet? If so can someone give a brief description on how good it is as I may pre-order it off Silvervision.

why would you want Rock vs lesnar? We had that match when they were in their prime, and it was decent.

Id rather have Punk vs rock or Rey vs Heel rock or Lesnar vs anyone

Punk needs to be built up more before he can hang with Rock and Lesnar. Lesnar going on a tear and becoming champion before facing Rock and dropping the belt is money, they'd be crazy to waste the opportunity and if they could work it right, Brock beating Punk, Rock beating Brock and then Punk beating Rock could be a hell of an arc. Lesnar and Rock is without doubt the biggest drawing match they have, as an actual match they'd have to have a monumental effort to reach their Summerslam 2002 match given how Rock looked at Mania as well as Brock's health issues. Still they have to build a new star out of this and it only makes sense to put on the biggest matches to draw the viewers in and then work on making guys like Punk more popular within the mainstream viewership and try and have him come out of the entire thing the champion and future of the business.

Rock v Punk at this point in time wouldn't work, match would only really work if Punk went heel since he could structure the match around Rock's current physique and stamina issues, but longterm Punk going heel doesn't work. And a face/face match between them would suck at this stage, Punk really hasn't found a natural groove as a face worker except when he's facing someone like Henry or Bryan and there's no way they could get a good match out of the situation, especially if Cena of all people could only drag an ok workrate match out of 2012 Rock.

If WWE had a good year all round I don't see why Brock wouldn't extend his contract. Granted might take a few months back and granted he is well enough to keep competing in a years time, he won't be doing anything else and he can't return to UFC because his injury has made him shite.

Meltzer rating are what you would expect, was never going to give that match the full 5.

WWE DVDs take a month or so later in UK over US because of importing the goods and whatnot.

I have every Taker/Trips match 17, 27 and 28 match at ****1/4.

Don't people think that Trips and Taker are done? End of an era and all? I can't see them coming back, well not Trips anyway, there is no need although he would bulk up the roster.

I could see him coming back down the line in a non wrestling role, which really is for the best. I mean his 2000 and 2005 are largely great and he's got the odd good/great performance in a lot of years, but I really think its about time he called it a day in the ring. Taker could be done but I dunno, I always saw WWE hyping the fuck out of his retirement, i.e the ultimate videeo packagaes, highlight reels and then some dramatic ending where he's carried away by Druids or some gothic/eerie act we've come to associate with The Deadman character. Somehow him having the quiet Austin retirement where they don't actually reference him being done just doesn't sound how WWE would end his career.

I've still not even grasped what this era is that's ending? The attitude era wrestlers? The era of two men who in the words of HHH 'are far and beyond the other guys in the back'? I mean they've never even talked about what Era supposedly ended that night at all.
