I'm getting so tired of seeing these face to face promo ads. Every week now it advertises "Shawn Michaels face to face with Undertaker next week!" "Undertaker face to face with Triple H next week!" "Shawn Michaels face to face with Triple H next week!" is that all this feud is gonna do going into Mania countless repetitive in ring promo's dramatically staring each other down?

every week they just come down the ring and talk and leave, what happened to the good old days of actually brawling and showing intesity? all this talking shit is getting old.

Oh lol saw this on youtube of Undertaker screwing up his lines whenever in a promo with HBK

I thought what would of been more intresting would of been as HBK was leaving HHH tried to get him to join him in a crotch chop with him and shawn michaels just walked off. I thought it would of added to it. Hopefully HBK brings out his Reffee tight hot shorts :)

I agree to some extent as it takes a bit of that surprise element out of it. What else are they suppose to do though? It's the same formula as Rock/Cena, no way they touch before Mania. Add to that I doubt they want Taker's hair situation revealed until Mania, that throws another wrinkle in your "brawl." This feud has been the best built feud going into Mania, it has just taken a bit of a backseat to Rock/Cena like everything else, but the intensity is there. They really don't need much more, but I'm sure when the three of them are in the ring next week, we are in for prime time TV..even if it's just talking. The feud has a lot of nuance and you really have to take in what's going on here. Lots of mind games between legends showcasing a top notch story that will be fleshed out during the match at Mania.

They can't have any physicality because they don't want to reveal Taker's bald look til Mania. They could have some between HBK & HHH, but it might not be the best idea.

This dynamic has been the best in the last few weeks anyway. With Jericho/Punk as a close second.

Undertaker could at least Chokeslam Trips without revealing his bald head (which btw is stupid to hold off until Mania just to reveal his bald head, OMG he's bald!! ya we all know already...).

If they fight, Taker's baldness will be revealed lol. Besides, their promos are mostly awesome. There's nothing to complain about on my end although I wish Trips would start speaking in them again. He's been pretty much silent these past 2 weeks and I think he does a better job of being in the holding spot of the promo than the other 2. HBK is actually outperforming Taker on the mic and all which is interesting. The better promos out of the bunch are HHH/HBK and HHH/Taker imo which is why I say Trips needs to start speaking again. He brings an intensity that the other 2 don't.

Just because the IWC knows about it doesn't mean everyone knows about it.

This feud is so boring. I have zero interest in the whole thing, much like last year. People say Rock/Cena repeat themselves, but holy fuck... this feud is the biggest bore which is disappointing when you look at the guys involved.

Shawn: DON'T CALL ME A FAILURE, I CAN END THE STREAK!
HHH: I'M JUST ENDING THE STREAK TO END AN ERA!
Undertaker: YOU CANNOT END THE STREAK!!!

That's basically all there is to it. HHH might as well retire cause he keeps feuding with his old buddies from the early 00s and their promos say the same shit. (i.e. HHH/Taker '11, HHH/Nash, HHH/Taker/HBK '12)

Oh, and worst of all is that they drag their promos for 15-20 minutes and still manage to say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that we haven't heard before! :lmao

The promos are awesome, I see no reason for them to stop. And to promote is pretty much obvious.

If you think about it, violence in this case isn't really needed until the match. It would kind of take something away from how much people are looking forward to it if they had an all out brawl right now, because it's not needed. Shawn Michaels is playing a character where he's making us unsure of who he'd favour, if he started attacking one of them now it would be obvious so they dont want to go in that direction.

Triple H and Undertaker are fine not getting physical right now too. The story is being sold on the words, and the intrigue into what might happen next. It would ruin some of that intrigue if they decided to go all out before the match.

Taker needs to up his game a little, he hasn't been bad... but his responses have been a bit weak.

If Punk and Jericho were given 15-20 minute promo segments, nobody would bitch.

I love how the Taker/HHH/HBK promos are going. These three know how to carry a program, and I'm anticipating this match more than anything else on the card.

I do find it funny that they always seem to be at the top of the first hour though. There needs to be a meme made with a smiling HBK that says "Hour One Done? It's Segment Time!"
