Another key element in the title match- once they started putting Batista in other matches it became clear that he’s not really able to carry a match anymore. He doesn’t have the stamina (and it’s not something you can regain quickly.) Making the main event a triple threat means he can sit out much of it.

I’m convinced this is at least part of the reason they altered the main event like they did.

The guy who should beat Taker at wrestlemania? Somebody who is young, dedicated to the company, and can actually cut a promo without having to rely on Paul Heyman to cover for their inability to project some sort of personality.

That ain’t brock.

“Bootista” is the funniest thing I’ve heard all day. Does that actually happen, and does anyone have clips?

So, wait, there isn’t even an Intercontinental Championship match at Wrestlemania anymore?

Nobody should beat Taker at Wrestlemania. Ever.

Seriously. You know what the logical end of The Undertaker’s career is? By which I mean, when Callaway finally decides to retire?

He “dies” in the ring at Wrestlemania, undefeated there.

Honestly I think Undertaker will retire undefeated at WrestleMania. He pretty much never puts any younger wrestlers over or loses cleanly. He actually deserves the reputation Triple H has for holding guys down.

This is the first time I’ve heard of your wrestling blog! Now I have to read through all the archives!

Fine, since no one else will, I’ll acknowledge it: I laughed at the blog post title.
Somehow its both obvious and unexpected.
Clever.

LOVED the Streak finish. Taker has looked progressively more terrible in the past five years, and I’d have found it really hard to suspend disbelief to the extent that the MMA-lite style of Undertaker would trump the
“Hey, didn’t I completely obliterate you like ten years ago?” sensibilities of Lesnar.

As for the “new guy breaks the streak” thing, what would you rather have: Roman Reigns (for example) being seen as the unqualified dickhead who beat the streak (because let’s be honest, ANYONE breaking the streak would’ve become an instant heel, if only for a short time)? Or Roman Reigns being the guy who takes OUT the dickhead who broke the streak?

No young talent has anything to gain from beating the shit out of a barely-mobile old man. They DO have something to gain from being the guy to step up and say “Cool, you beat Taker. Try that shit on me.”

I have no issue with Lesnar being the one to bury the Taker, but I do wish the match didn’t go at such a snail’s pace that even the commentators felt they had to remark on it. But if Callaway can’t go anymore, Callaway can’t go, not much to be done about it.

Other than that I liked everything else in the show, even the Diva clusterfuck, and WM30 was a 10/10 Mania for me.
