Really? I don't know about that either. That match is way behind HBK/Taker from WM 25 imo.
Okay, I'm going to bring up another viewpoint. Suppose Taker says screw it for this Mania because he doesn't really care to face CM Punk? I mean they did have beef years back.
It would be weird if he does miss Mania being a big part of it the last decade, but if last year's match turns out to be his last it would be fitting.
Of course, I expect Cena/Taker for WM 30 is really where he'll make his money.
I also think reaching 20 wins last year changes the scope of the streak perhaps in his mind in terms of wrestling regardless of condition to get to that double digit.
Not saying either way, but the rumors just seem suspect to me. It feels like a work for a retirement match. It would be the perfect way for him to end the streak with 2 years rumor of him being too banged up and he hangs it up at the 30th edition of Mania.
