It is, in terms of "memroys" it will creat a much bigger thing,
Nobody remembers Germany losing the 2002 World Cup to Brazil. They remember Cafu lifting the trophy.
Nobody remembers Foreman losing to Ali. They remember Ali kicking his ass.
See, winning is always bigger than losing. Not in this sport only, but in sports in general.
I agree, but I think you can say that's one of the best matches ever and is an exception to the rule, if you fight like that it don't matter if the streak was on the line or not, it would be remember above the feud or the moment it was in
Well, if I cannot name that then Taker/Kane at WM 14, Taker/HHH at WM 17, and Taker/Batista at WM 23 are still great choices for being memorable matches.
And I doubt Taker/HBK at WM 25 would have been as good if it weren't for the fact The Streak was on the line.
Fair enough, but I'm talking about when he is done and his last match, there is no "more leacy" except maybe the guy who beat him, who could owe all his future susces to taker
Many people had owed their future success to Taker by being put over by him. People like Mankind, Kane, Lesnar, and Orton for example.
And there are people who were put over by him but didn't use it wisely like Gonzales, Kennedy, Khali, Kozlov, and Heidenrich. I think when it comes to putting people over, Taker has done a fair share without actually using The Streak (bar Orton).
WCW crumbling was a impact, notice I said for better or worse, but even then it MADE Kevin Nash, that moment is one of his most famous (infamous) moments, I'd agure that it helped WCW as while it still fail I believe it had people talking, and once again it led to some impressive things, NWO and many other things going on the time where "raised" they lost yes, but that was more due to things out side of what happens in the ring (the company not wanting anything to do with wrestling)
How many times do you see Nash being mentioned as the best ever? People mention the likes of Rock, Austin, Flair, HBK, Bret, HHH, Hogan, Taker, or even Cena or Lesnar, but where is Nash?
If that's the definition of being MADE, then all the more reason I have not to let The Streak be broken.
As for why take the risk, becuse there is nothing to gain by letting him keep it, if someone beats taker its quite possible he will lead WWE to a new golden age, I dont know about you but that sounds worth it, more so when Taker keeping it adds nothing
I did mention the DVDs. And merchandises.
I'm not saying do it with Cena, or that Taker don't deserve to keep it, just that Taker him self has always been a company man, he wanted the streak to end, he wants to put a new guy over. and I get that, its sort of old school but thats how it used to ALWAYS be, Taker is that type of guy and I respect what he wants, and also want whats best for the WWE
Again, Vince won't let him end The Streak to anybody. HHH & Steph are on Vince's side. What they say is final.
I have no problem if he dose go undefeated but I think for WWE its best he losses
WWE don't know how to book things properly anymore. Anybody who ends The streak will be buried in 6 months by the "Creative" team.
I'd be so surprised if this is about money, Undertaker has loads of money, not just wrestling money, but money from houses in Texas, he's worth $60 million. Vince has enough money, he'll give undertaker what he wants, but by now Taker is coming back for the fans, and like people are saying, he's getting stitched over this year, why should he settle? Still think he'll be there though.
no it wont brother. Cena will get his win this year they will shake hands then the feud is over and then after cena had beaten the Rock he will challenge the Undertaker
No, brother, Rock/Cena will follow the footsteps of Rock/Austin & Taker/HHH. There's a bigger chance of Taker/Sting happening at WM 30 than Taker/Cena.
