Again, I agree that Brock physically poses the bigger threat to Undertaker than Rock or anyone for that matter at WrestleMania 29. However, I'm going to have to disagree with Cena (heel or face, and it's questionable if he will turn heel at this point) is more of a fighter/brawler/aggressive than Rock. If Cena is suitable for the Streak with his smiles and Five Knuckle Shuffles then Rock is suitable with his catchphrases and People's Elbows. We all would love for Cena to turn heel. We have been clamoring for it for years but I'm not so sure he will be a heel let's say this time next year if he was headed toward a match with Taker at the 30th WrestleMania. Rock's obviously not going heel either and I don't think anyone suggested he should, just present more aggressiveness in his determination to take down The Streak in his quest to solidifying has status as the greatest of all time.

My ideal situation would be to have Punk vs Rock at Mania for the title with Punk going over but lets be honest: whilst Punk is undoubtedly over as champion he isn't close to Cena's level in terms of being a draw. Rock vs Cena II whilst done before would undoubtedly draw more than Punk vs Rock. The twitter poll may say otherwise but who wants to bet that the majority of that poll was voted on by the IWC? Its not a good idea of what casual fans really want to see.

I know this has been said already but I see Rock vs Punk indeed going down at RR with Punk remaining champion for 14 months. Rock will win the title that night with Cena either winning the RR or winning a number one contenders match at EC setting up Rock vs Cena II. The only other option is sticking Lesnar in there, having him win the number one contender's spot and having Rock vs Brock II at Mania. This I believe would draw more than Rock vs Cena II. Why? It hasn't been done in a long time and both men are big draws, Rock being the legend and Hollywood moviestar and Lesnar being one of the most recognisable fighters/sportsmen in the world. The draw could be huge. There is one problem: It is likely both men wont be doing anything after and leaving so we could have the Goldberg/Lesnar effect of them being booed out of the building. Will WWE want to risk that on the main event of the biggest PPV's of the year? I don't know, my gut instinct says no.

Due to their history, its likely Lesnar will face Taker which is another potentially big money match as Lesnar is one of the few people who can be seen as a legitimate threat to the streak. The only question is where does this leave Punk? Stone Cold is said to not be wrestling until WM 30 and he wants the match itself to be the main event, in which the most likely opponent will be Punk because both men want it. Austin is unlikely to face Punk at WM 29 so who does Punk face? Presents a dilemma and its most likely Punk will be forced down the card for the PPV. Which is a shame.

Again, some don't get the point, there's no "evolution" of the streak or continuity. HBK couldn't beat Taker, so they took it to another level, and he put his career on the line. HHH couldn't beat Taker, so they took it to another level, in their feud and put HIAC around the ring. That was their story, not the story of the streak, what one guy couldn't do in a brutal HIAC, another guy can do in a match. I will say it again:

Quote:
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.
That's of course if you want to talk believability and reality based story, what you're saying that if one guy lost in a brutal match, it means that a better opponent can't do it in another, is not realistic or believable, you put Rock with Taker at WM and the entire crowd is going to buy every nearfall more than anything they did in HIAC. It's all about the delivery, HBK/HHH traded 100 finishers with Taker at Mania, to the point where you knew it's not ending until at least 3 or 4 more. Rock giving a completely fresh Rock Bottom and a People's Elbow combination and the stadium will explode like never before when Taker is kicking out. Rock/Taker will be much better than Cena/Taker in every aspect(Cena is not a fighter in any way, and Rock is ten times the brawler he is), and the only way Brock/Taker will be better is if you want another MMA based brawl which was already much less effective the second time at Summerslam.

Kudos to the person who put that together. I want to see this match at WM30. I think the atmosphere for a huge main event match between Rock and Undertaker would be glorious to witness.
That was an amazing package and explained the story perfectly, until now, no opponent he couldn't overcome until The Rock. Rock needs to win to prove to himself, more than the entire world that he is the undisputed GOAT by doing what no man was able to do. Personally, WM29 is THE place to do Rock/Brock or Rock/Taker, by far the top 2 biggest attractions in the industry, for WM30, I want to believe that they will go for the ultimate dream matches which means Rock and HBK, but if not that? Rock/Taker would be unbelievable.

Rock is the GOAT and all but thinking that the Streak could be ended trough a people's elbow is just rediclious.

You really needed to read about it to know it? It was a brutal and sloppy leg drop from Cena, I wrote about it a few pages ago, just careless move that almost broke Rock's neck and ruined a huge year of roles for him. Cena can't and shouldn't execute moves like that when he clearly has no idea how to do them safely.

Fucking amazing moment. That's why it was worth to be a fan of this business during all the horrendous and unwatchable periods, this is up there for me with King DD scoring the final penalty this year.

I will watch the Rock/Cena NBC special in a few hours, should be a great package.
