Re: Why didn't Edge go over Taker at WM24

Because he was facing Undertaker and Undertaker can never lose at Mania.

It is so totally in the WWE's booking rules. Look it up!

I can see it now every Wrestlemania season......

Pat Patterson: Vince, Mark's up to his usual tricks again. He's going around telling people he'll pay his Wrestlemania bonus if they agree to end the streak.

Vince McMahon: Dammit, you tell those sons of bitches that if anyone accepts his offer I'll send them on a one way ticket to The Impact Center!! I don't care if that bastard has to roll down the aisle in a wheel chair, he's gonna come back at every Wrestlemania and defend the streak.

Re: Why didn't Edge go over Taker at WM24

Because Edge was injury prone and was on borrowed time as we all saw. Before the first match with Michaels, I considered Edge to be Undertaker's best Wrestlemania match as he got in A LOT of offense during the main event. Now, its become an afterthought. Had he been healthier, I do think Edge was worthy of ending the Streak.

What Vic said is spot on. Had the streak ended there, we couldn't have got the 4 absolute spectacles that followed that match, Undertaker would probably have retired as well.

Re: Why didn't Edge go over Taker at WM24

honestly we're lucky the streak didn't end back then. If it did, you wouldn't have gotten the 4 epic matches that followed WM 24. (HBk vs Taker WM 25/26, HHH vs Taker WM 27/28)

Not to mention, Edge is great, but the streak needs something much bigger for it to end. They can't just throw it away as a tool to try and put over someone, it's too big for that.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Re: Why didn't Edge go over Taker at WM24

I think I heard Edge actually refused the offer to end the streak? But then again that rumour seems to go about for every opponent Undertaker had before his 4 year indulgence of the Kliq at Mania. (6 of his 20 matches at Mania are against Kliq members and he's never lost, shows you the extent of the respect he has lol).

Anyway I think 'Taker winning was the right result regardless of the streak. Edge was a heel running around with his lackeys surviving by the skin of his teeth consistantly. Mania is a blow off PPV where all that shit comes to an end - it's only right for a big ol' hero like Taker to stroll into Mania and put an end to his ways.

But if you don't buy that argument, I'm still glad Taker won to extend his streak. The guys putting on MOTN (and MOTY) contenders every Wrestlemania purely because he has to come back and defend this streak. I truely believe he'd just retire officially and not come back if it wasn't for it. Sure, it's a little predictable that he'll never lose but his matches are great and I've been caught up in the moment enough in some of his matches to think he might just lose.

Specially the last 4 streak matches, all of them have been pretty unpredictable because of how good the matches have been. The best one would be when HBK SCM'd Taker followed by Triple-H giving him the pedigree, i really thought that was it.

Re: Why didn't Edge go over Taker at WM24

I'm a huge Edge fan, and I also wish he ended the streak in 2008. The guy gave a lot to his company. He was deserving.

It was also a good setting for Undertaker to call it quits.

I know that means we never receive HBK vs 'Taker or HHH vs 'Taker, but so what? A proper send-off is worth it.
