Nobody said that it's needs to be a normal wrestling match, but it also doesn't need to be a brawl, that's wrestling, you're not working a years of long term booking unless it's the same guys, now with HHH out of the picture, you got a different opponent, an opponent that can be better than HHH, more effective than him with a bigger chance to beat and match Taker's style, I'm not talking about Rock or Brock or any specific person. Just the context, from what you said, HHH and HBK are the best of all time and because Taker beat them in that type of match, nobody else can do it. Let's take this for example, because we're mostly talking in the borders of kayfabe land here, Chael Sonnen took arguably the GOAT in MMA Anderson Silva to the limit like nobody did before him, just killing him for 4 and half rounds, in a desperate move Silva was able to win the fight via Submission, now if another fighter, with different style and better skills, say Jon Jones, goes in and beat Silva in 2 rounds, does that mean that Silva was unbeatable because he fought one person for 4 rounds? no. Just means that he fought different styles and different caliber of opponent. Same thing with wrestling if you want the story to be fresh and exciting and not the same brawl every year with the predictable nearfalls and kickouts, nobody is more credible than The Rock today, a guy who beat Cena clean after 8 years. Don't get me wrong, I can get your view on this subject and personally I would much rather watch Rock/Brock than Rock/Taker, but that doesn't mean Taker suddenly became a repetitive one style guy. You're not giving these workers enough credit for their tremendous mind and ability to lay out a match IMO.
Yeah I heard about it, WWE of course didn't let this mainstream opportunity slip, and we know how much they hate when someone mentions them, even when there's nothing to do with them lol. Posted it on their website:
WWE enters “The Newsroom”
The Rock may be “The Most Electrifying Man in Entertainment,” but according to last night’s episode of HBO’s “The Newsroom,” the seven-time WWE Champion is also on the leading edge of breaking news.
Titled "5/1," Sunday’s episode of the acclaimed drama series situated inside a TV newsroom followed the journalists on May 1, 2011—the night the world learned of the death of Osama bin Laden. The characters on the show learn of the news via a tweet from The Rock that night.
In real life, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson alluded to bin Laden’s death in a tweet on May 1, 2011, at 10:24 p.m. ET – more than an hour before President Obama formally announced the development in a speech before a national audience.
“Just got word that will shock the world–LAND OF THE FREE…home of the brave. DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN,” The Rock tweeted.
