Not really. If Cena can beat him then Taker can beat him. If HHH goes on to beat him as well then Taker can definitely beat him since in kayfabe, Taker > just about anybody lol.

With HHH being an authority figure character now I actually think they will have Brock go over him, he would lose to Taker at Mania though, obviously.

I guess I'd be okay with Taker vs. Cena at 30, it NEEDS to happen before he retires though.

I'm thinking Rock's gonna win the Title around January time and drop it to Cena at Mania.

However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Knowing that Taker Brock will happen if I'm booking the championship I'd have Rock win the belt at the Rumble and then defend the championship in a Fatal 4 Way against Cena (2 of 4Punk, Orton, Sheamus or Bryan). SD title could go to the 2 left out.

I agree with the people saying Once in a Lifetime can't be repeated. At least not at the following Mania.

Hmm, not sure I want to see this. Cena/Taker seems to make more sense. But we are months away from WM, speculating this stuff now will probably mean nothing a few months.

Rock said he's going for the belt, that doesn't mean that he'll be in a title match for sure at WM 29. For all we know he could have a match like that at SummerSlam or Survivor Series (I know that isn't likely, I'm just saying I don't see why Rock has to be in the title match). But if that meant a potential Rock/Punk or whoever match, anything that keeps him away from Cena, I'm all for it.

It HAS to be Rock vs Brock for the title, that really would be the biggest match in WWE history.
It's going to be painfully obvious no matter what. That honestly isn't the real allure of Streak matches any more. It's been painfully obvious for the last three years that the Streak won't end, Taker, HHH and HBK have just been excellent at getting people caught up in the moment, even if only for a second. If Lesnar and Taker can create that chemistry again, then that's what will get people to want to see the match. The only person I think has a legitimate shot at ending the Streak is Cena, and that is EXACTLY I do NOT want Cena/Taker at Mania.

If the plan is Taker/Lesnar down the line then HHH has to loose tbh. I mean in kayfabe terms if they have HHH > Brock and we already know Taker > HHH therefore Taker > HHH > Brock. If they want to do Brock/Taker then Brock has to destroy HHH and everybody after that from here on out.

Of course Taker can beat him, but it shows you that they don't see Lesnar's push resulting in a Wrestlemania championship match.

The streak isn't WWE's #1 priority. John Cena is. Hence why John Cena goes over and feuds with Rock in some fashion for the championship.

In regards to the streak. It doesn't matter how they book Lesnar you already knew from the start who wins that match.

Considering that Lesnar is the only guy that Taker has never defeated, it sounds good to me.

Save Cena/Taker for WM 30.

lol at people caring about wins and losses. If Lesnar beat Cena tomorrow it wouldn't even matter and Lesnar still dominated 95% of that match. Debate it to death but it doesn't make Lesnar look that bad. Is it poor booking? Yes, but it's not the end of the world.

Except Rock's already said he's not coming back to January.

It's clear as day Rock called dibs on the WWE championship match this year.

Wins and losses lead to credibility. The Streak and more importantly, buying into the potential ending of the streak, depends solely on the credibility of the opponent. That loss to Cena damaged Lesnar more than you're able to see for whatever reason. It doesn't matter to you but it sure as hell matters to most other people. It's simple really. You don't kill off the villain in the first scene. I'll never buy into Lesnar the way I did before ER because he can be beaten. It makes all the difference in the world.
