I thought this was assumed from the second they signed lesnar. Taker-Brock is a no brainer

Makes sense. It's the biggest match they could possibly do (yes, bigger than Rock/Lesnar, Cena/Lesnar, or Rock/Cena II).

Taker/Lesnar is not even in the same caliber as Rock/Lesnar, from wrestling fans standpoint and especially mainstream media who are the reason for record breaking shows. The Streak is mostly the second biggest attraction in every WM unless Rock is wrestling Taker next year. Either way Taker/Lesnar is not happening.

Great match. Which means WWE will somehow manage to convince themselves not to do it.

If that's 'Taker's match for WrestleMania 29, I'm excited. I'll be there live most likely, so I'd be pumped to see that, plus with that on the card, it's likely The Rock and John Cena go at it once again. I like the move as well because it saves The Undertaker vs John Cena for WrestleMania 30 to headline if 'Taker sticks around and he can finally retire at that show.

A TRUE draw at WM doesn't need any of that shit.
Why not just acknowledge the match for being really good rather than discouraging it?

People wanted Trips/Taker in a cell and we got it and it was awesome. Who cares if it was a gimmick match? Some of the best matches in wrestling have had gimmicks.

They can't make this an interesting match anymore. If they had done things the right way and had Lesnar go undefeated and destroy everyone from now until WrestleMania it would have worked. People would have bought into Lesnar being a threat to Taker's WM streak. Now? No thank you. I'd rather just see a regular arrogant heel Lesnar vs. The Rock.

Dont mind this too much, if they are saving Cena v Taker for Mania 30 then I cant really see anyone else who could take on taker...other then maybe Rock.

But im almost certain we will be set up for Cena Rock 2, with sadly a Cena win

It makes way more sense than Rock/Lesnar II booking wise.

Taker/Brock - Picture this: Brock has beaten all of the top faces in WWE. Cena (we'll assume he get's his win back), Orton, HHH, Punk. He's beaten them all. For him, only one thing stands in the way of him proving to all that the WWE is just a big a joke as he said it was: the streak. The only man left for him to destroy is the man who one night a year is near invincible. Can he do it? Can he destroy the last sacred thing left in the WWE? Or will he end the streak and, potentially, WWE itself?

That's an easy match to sell.

Now...

Rock/Brock II - Picture this: Brock has beaten all of the top faces in WWE. Cena (we'll assume he get's his win back), Orton, HHH, Punk. He's beaten them all. All of them except for the Rock, who has returned from Hollywood to........make gay jokes about Brock.

Seriously though, Brock's WM match needs to be invincilbe monster vs. invincible monster, and Taker/Brock will do that better than just about any WM match in history. Rock, for all that he is (and he is a lot of things, one of which is being one of the most charismatic guys in history), he's never been this unstoppable fucking asskicking force of nature. As for Rock/Brock, how do you hype that match? You can't do all the wacky back and forth ala Rock/Cena. If Brock's talking about people shit their pants and that he doesn't give a fuck about WWE because he's a former UFC champ and he can whip anyone's ass, what does Rock do in that angle? Throw a Rock Concert and sing songs about Brock being ugly? That doesn't mesh well, imo.
