They can write a book about it. Maybe in Bryan Alvarez's future book "The Death of WWE", we will get a chapter on WM29.

I think Taker is working WM, I don't see him missing a big show like that, it's just a one match effort and even with all his pain, I'm sure he can go through it. But there's a bigger chance that he's working with Cena or Ryback than Lesnar at this point IMO. I also see no reason for HHH to actually retire in the near future, he can still perform and be a one match guy for a few more years. He's there backstage anyway, when it's the right situation, he can always come back for a WM or a Summerslam. Don't see a reason for them to put the "retired" tag on him. Not to mention that I always hated this stupid "official retirement" concept. Anyway, what I see happening is Lesnar teasing HHH for weeks, saying that he retired because of him etc. HHH selling desperation on how he can't do it. Long story short, HHH agrees to the match, Lesnar dominates him, HHH brings Floyd, HHH going over at WM. Unfortunately, that's the pointless scenario I can see them doing this year. It can always change with one conversation but as of now, with the way they did things with HHH's "retirement", Lesnar/HHH is 90% the way I see it.
All the signs are definitely pointing to Rock/Cena II. There are NO signs pointing to HHH/Lesnar though, not to me anyways. Taker's matches have become the main thing they book in advance at Mania. Taker isn't working with Ryback. There's simply not even the slightest chance of it happening. It's Lesnar, Cena or bust as far as he's concerned. I truly believe Taker/Cena is for Mania 30 so that leaves Lesnar while he's here. If Taker can't work a match, then the most likely scenario is HHH/Lesnar but only then. Given the story arc that has developed over the past few years with the streak matches, Taker facing Lesnar makes perfect sense and I definitely think that's where we are headed.

As for HHH, he isn't going to be wrestling forever. All you have to do is listen to him talk about it himself. They have officially started the marking of HHH's possible retirement with the Brock match. Considering the fact that he has about 1 or 2 matches a year now, it's easy for them to go keep that going for another 2 years or so. I just don't see HHH/Lesnar happening at all, even with Mayweather being involved and that isn't even confirmed. Again, just because he talked about it doesn't mean it's happening.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I don't want to see Taker/Lesnar, and I don't want to see Taker/HHH, and I don't want to see HHH/Lesnar. For Taker/Lesnar, I don't think the match would be all that good. Granted they had a great HIAC match together but it would just be very boring now. Taker/HHH would be overdone, and HHH/Lesnar sucks because they'd already done it and it wasn't great. As a matter of fact the only people I'd care to see Taker have a match with at Wrestlemania are Cena and Punk. Cena is the biggest match Taker has left in him.

Re: something to consider- The Rock v CM Punk- Royal Rumble....

You're assuming Rock won't work Elimination Chamber but we don't know that. If he does win the title I could easily see him having a 1-on-1 title match at EC and make the RAW elimination chamber a #1 contenders match. It would suck if he won the title and lost it without successfully defending it once.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!

Re: something to consider- The Rock v CM Punk- Royal Rumble....

It'd be an incredible waste of an asset to put The Rock against CM Punk twice. Even doing it once is almost a waste. That could mean we're either not getting a Rock/Lesnar match, or we're not getting a Rock/Cena 2 which would still be the biggest drawing main event WWE could muster up right now.

Punk is a third wheel in the equation, and simply doesn't matter nearly as much as the other two big opponents for Rock. Punk has practically no mainstream value.

Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion

I think Taker/Lesnar would own tbh and he's really the only guy who makes sense given the current story arc of the streak. HHH isn't happening again, Rock doesn't suit, Punk is a nonstarter and so is everybody else not counting Cena who is most likely being kept for 30.

It would be a waste to put The Rock on a b show like the Elimination Chamber, its the wrong show to put him on as was the Survivor Series tag team match. Rock/Cena 2 is the biggest possible drawing main event? how do you figure that?

Re: something to consider- The Rock v CM Punk- Royal Rumble....

If Rocky is back just to burry other wrestlers, then plz just dont come back. Whats the point of Rocky winning the title anyway, wwe already have a bad future and Rocky winning will just make it even worst. Let Punk beat Rocky in RR by the help of Lesnar, is it hard to put a talent over. WM Punk/Taker, Rock/Lesnar, Cena/Ryback, Barrett/Sheamus/Henry for the WHC title, Orton/Ambrose for the IC title, Cesaro/Bryan for the US title, etc. Thats money and future talk. If the talents will not get over, then they will never be taken seriously.
