It's been forever since I watched a live PPV match, and I can't even remember the last HIAC match I watched. Probably one from the attitude era...
So I read that even though we are all now living in the PG world of wrestling, as far as a PPV match is concerned, there are boundaries that shouldn't be crossed and there are " limits " ... Just like the whole deal with blood now in the PG era and chair shots..
I also read that Taker and HHH were fined last year for the chair shots in the WM match.. Not sure if that is true, but is that really all that can be done as far as discipline if a wrestler goes too far nowadays? If the rules are not somehow thrown out for this years HIAC at WM, could HHH and Taker still do certain things just to make the match better, even though its now " not allowed " ?
If FINES are the only things they have to worry about as far as going to far is concerned, they better make this match one to remember for the ages. I'm not expecting them to push it farther then the Taker, Mankind HIAC but just seeing some blood and both of those stars on top of the cell would please me. I just pray pray pray that they make this one EPIC, but it worries me cause we all know we can leave it to the WWE to dissapoint us.

So what happens if these guys try to include something like that, just because its the match that it is... Would they just be fined and thats it or would it depend on just how far they went?

BAH GAWD KING! TAKER JUST SLAMMED TRIPLE H'S HEAD ON THE CELL WALL FOR THE 3RD TIME!! HE MUST HAVE THE MOST EXCRUCIATING HEADACHE!!!

Hopefully, we get alot more than that. Maybe a little blood at least.

I forget the match at WM last year but I think people said they had chairshots to the head?

Anyway, it's basically just a cage match but with no escape.
Seriously, they're allowed use the cage as a weapon but that's it.
When was the last time the cell was broken and they brawled on the outside?

But as for being fined and stuff... It's fucking undertaker, I'd say if he told Vince he's going to jump from the top of the cage, he'd get away with it. 'Taker is still a respected guy and if he gets fired over one match, I don't think it would sit too well.

As for HHH getting fined? Yeah... I'm sure he'll get fined and then after that maybe we'll see Vince apologise to Trish for the bark like a dog bit.

I agree, I got the same feeling. It would be different if it was just another match, but if this is secretly planning to FOR SURE be his last, I think it might end up being just a whatever happens happens and the kids can deal with it, match. But then again, the Taker and HBK match with HBK retiring didn't turn out to be bloody and old school exactly.. I dont know. If they are going to go all the way, then I hope that doesn't mean more and more tombstones and pedigrees until the guy doesn't kick out again, and some good ol fashioned old school action like we have all been missing.

It won't be his last match.
We need much, much more ego stroking for HBK. Next year we'll probably have a 3 way with HHH, Taker, HBK in a "showstopper" match or some retarded shit like that.

@^: Even thought that's true, I think it's funny they allow one of their sponsors to be a beer company, and yet still appeal to the kids in the audience.

One of the biggest demographics for beer companies is kids

and the fact that its mostly rednecks who watch the WWE shows its good business sense. And those beer drinking kids will have their own kids that grow up to love the WWE

Hopefully this match can live up to classic attitude era HIACs like Undertaker vs Big Boss Man.
:lmao

I was thinking last week, that is good enough reason to run this HIAC match at WM 28. Just so Undertaker can have a potential Hell in a Cell classic at Wrestlemania defending the Streak that can completely wash away the sour taste of that horrendous match at one of the worst Wrestlemanias ever.

/facepalm

Just... just think about that for a moment.
Of all the millions of people who watch television, you believe that more than 50% of "rednecks" watch WWE?

Are you fucking serious? Where the fuck did you pull that shit up from? How far did you dig to get that amount of shit?
