Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Why do some people assume beating Taker at Mania will make you a megastar? It's a big deal, no doubt. But it's a big deal to wrestling fans and wrestling fans only. It won't draw in new watchers and/or make the wrestler who ended the streak a Hogan/Austin/Rock-level guy. Even fans of the wrestler won't say "all right, he ended Taker's streak; HE IS AWESOME. I will tune in to every single thing he does and buy all of his merchandise." Ending the streak will just disappoint a lot of fans.
