The fact that Taker hasn't appeared has helped Bray grow as a heel; antagonizing the much-adored legend that is Undertaker knowing full-well that he won't appear to the disappointment of the fans. And you claim that it hasn't electrified the crowd at all which I disagree with. This is all leading to the moment where they go face to face at Mania and then you will see how electic the crowd will be.No, the most powerful silence is the crowd being forced to listen to bray's soliloquies, while holding out hope that Taker deigns to make an appearance, one that isnt going to happen. This build has not electrified the crowds at all, save for the moment they thought Taker would show up. Of course he will probably appear for Sting to build next year's Mania. This gives the appearance of this Mania just being a pitstop and the real show is next year.
