You guys put too much weight on the result of the match. Cena looked like a little boy against Brock

Doesn't matter. Not only was his beatdown of Cena watered down by the fact that he will end up being off television for months following the match, the writers have hammered it home that he "lost" by having HHH and Punk among others mention that he was "beaten" by Cena. Regardless though, the main point with an Undertaker Mania match is for it to have any appeal really, there has to be atleast a 1%possibility in your mind that Taker may not win. The only way to create that 1% with Lesnar would to have had him undefeated as well.

Unfortunately, I am starting to fear that Cena/Rock II might be on tap for Mania as well. Possibly even followed by Cena/Rock III at WMXXX. I pray to Odin this does not happen, but if Cena isnt paired up with Taker, then he is most likely in with the Rock. I would prefer to see Taker vs. Cena and Brock vs. Rock along with HHH vs. Ziggler and Punk vs. Austin if it can be booked.

The match should've happened if Lesnar went undefeated and destroyed all the guys he fought (Cena, HHH, Punk, Orton, Sheamus, and/or whoever else). Rock/Lesnar might be better for short term business, but long term it would be better for Rock or Lesnar to put over the next top face of WWE... whether it be CM Punk or Sheamus (though Sheamus isn't ready for that match yet, but maybe could be by the time Mania rolls around). Whoever doesn't can face Taker for the streak. Taker/Lesnar would be better for a storyline perspective, but Taker/Rock would be bigger for business for mainstream. Both would be huge for wrestling fans.

However, even not taking into account this report, Taker is clearly facing Lesnar if between the two of them. Rock's already basically declared he's going after the WWE Title. Taker isn't winning the WWE Title ever again. That means Rock is either facing Cena again and Cena wins the title at some point, or Punk is champion by the time Mania rolls around.

Personally though, with Lesnar losing to Cena, I'd much rather see Taker/Rock. I want Taker/Cena for WM30 and Taker's final match and I think that is what will happen. Plus with my brother being a massive Rock mark and me being an equally massive Taker mark... well, it'd be like old times.

Are you ruling out the possibility that Brock could win the WWE Title on the RTWM and Rock challenges him at WrestleMania 29?

No, that could possibly happen. But my post was more about Taker's opponent and why Lesnar would probably be it over Rock. I realize Rock/Lesnar could still happen, but in my first paragraph I explained why I think it shouldn't, and therefore didn't go into it any more.

Here's the thing though... the WWE Title being in that match would feel meaningless tbh. Unless Rock or Lesnar was sticking around post Mania, what happens? They go out there, fight for the title, no matter who wins the title will be vacated the next night? It's the same problem with Lesnar/Rock being not for the title, but at least if it isn't for the title the WWE Title can still have it's own big match and can be used to help elevate a match, rather than hanging by a thread off the epicness alone of Brock/Rock.

But yeah, I'm not saying Brock winning the title and then Rock/Brock going off that isn't possible, but it's just not ideal imo. If Brock/Rock MUST happen, don't throw the WWE Title in there.

If they don't have Brock/Rock for the title then they would have to negate Rock's promise of aiming for that goal which some casual would probably forget anyway unless reminded. If it's non-title WM29 will just be another show with main events that are bigger than the title match and will receive more build and attention. The WWE Title needs more relevance on the grand stage and having Rock/Brock fight for it could give it that attention. Although Brock/Rock don't need the extra attraction/element but maybe the WWE title needs it.
