You guys can't deny that a Taker loss is bigger than another win at this point. Which sounds more fun to talk about: "Man, that is so cool that Taker went 23-0 at WM" "Man, were you there when Taker finally lost at Wrestlemania?". I don't know why I just asked that question on Wrestlingforum.com when I know damn well what the answer is gonna be. But maybe there is at least one person......
I think there's problems with Taker losing at WM too. His character deserves to ride off in the sunset. His whole legacy is rising from dead. It's a hard sell to sell a rematch without the streak and a predictable ending.
Since Taker was never given the company and was always overlooked in the championship scene the streak is his defining legacy. I absolutely could see Vince wanting him to retire with it.
I don't know when Taker is planning on calling it quits but I would absolutely take 23-0 with victories over Lesnar and Rock opposed to losing to Cena at WM 30. I'm not a Cena hater either.
