I'd be a bit disappointed but tbh there's no potential match this year involving taker that would really excite me, the only matches left I really want to see him in is vs Rock or Cena (or a new rising star in a few year's time that he might put over).
I'm thinking that HHH will sit this Mania out currently, so if Taker can't compete, then I think they'll just switch places with the former facing Lesnar instead. I think Rock/Cena/Punk is happening regardless.
That is such bullshit haha I want to throw apples at the person who wrote this. We all know Taker is comming back the writing is on the wall. HHH would have never said we havent seen the last of Taker at the slammys if he wasnt comming back. He wasnt at the rumble because there was no need to be there. The storyline wouldnt have made sence if Taker returned at the rumble. AND hes a VIP at WM axxess no way he would be at Axxess if he wasnt competing
