I generally find the HHH/Taker matches extremely boring and VERY overrated by the majority. Infact, I personally prefer their Wrestlemania 17 match over their Wrestlemania 27/28 matches, I don't know why. With regards to the difference between 26 and 25, I thought that the only thing that edged it was the build up for the rematch and the blowback spots that occured during that match, all of which added more to the story and made it one of, if not THEE greatest Wrestlemania match of all time. But anybody that wants to put Wrestlemania 25 in that position, I have no problem with.
I think the WM 17 match is definitely better than the WM 27 match, but not better than the WM 28 match.
Alright, I have to come clean about it is that I love this match. It is overshadowed by Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin, which is of course, an outstanding match, and then you had the Chicago Street Fight which was awesome too but I do love the main event, Undertaker vs. Psycho Sid.
Yeah, given I'm an Undertaker fan but when I was young and I was watching the match, it really got me involved and emotional and hoping The Undertaker to win the title but the only thing I didn't like was the finish because I wanted Undertaker to win it cleanly but anywho, I do find the match entertaining and this is the first time I have seen Undertaker being tombstoned which was unlikely at the time. I have watched it back again now on the 20 - 0 DVD and still have the emotion for it... it may not be the ALL-TIME CLASSIC but it was one the matches that made an impact on me, personally. I don't get the hate and dislike about it and I still rate it about *** stars or so because the two did deliver a one heck of a good contest and Sid was dominating which made The Undertake feel like the underdog, And I also find a bit underrated at main event matches concerned.
So, does anyone here feel the love to the match that I do?
That match is indeed pretty decent. I think many people hate it thanks to zero build up and Bret's interference which they thought cheapen Taker's victory.
He won't. You can quote me on that. It'll probably be Lesnar at 29 and Cena at 30. Then he'll retire.
A lot of people think Undertaker would retire at Wrestlemania 30 and while that seems plausible, if we are to believe that Austin is expected to wrestle at WM 30 which is the rumor going around and that he would only accept doing one last match in the main event, then I doubt Undertaker will choose to retire at WM 30. If Undertaker retires it's going to be in the main event at WM like Shawn Michaels and if Austin would only accept the main event then it won't be at WM 30. So I could see Cena vs. Undertaker being held off longer even though logic would say Undertaker would call it quits at the 30th anniversary at WM because they want Undertaker to be the focal point of the main event.
