LOL that's what I was thinking. Kinda ridiculous, but I choose to believe this was true.


Now we know why they didn't bring up the Ariel Helwani video during the build for the match haha

Yeah the crowd was a little dead in the beginning, but it was still a pretty good match.

I wonder if the WWE didn't put too much hype behind the Lesnar match because they knew it was going to be bad. Like Undertaker showed up in January and told Vince that he was having trouble getting into shape like he used to and he wants this to be the end.

Watching that "match" now and I wish they would have done their full entrance instead of it being interrupted. Sucks that the Shield were wasted on those olds for a match that didn't even last 3 minutes.

She will probably fued with Tamina next, since she hasn't beat her yet. Hopefully Emma, sans Santino, soon.

Paige is ready but I just don't see the WWE in any rush to bring her over to Raw. Her merch sells well and she's a big part of the NXT brand, but I guess they want to wait. Although she's going to get stale soon. She has defeated the all the female roster. It's only a matter of time till people call her the female John Cena.

There were people within WWE surprised that the betting odds for Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker took a late swing with Lesnar as the favorite because as noted, even the most high up people in the company didnít know the finish until it happened. There are people within WWE who know the outcomes of matches because they have to and even they had The Undertaker winning.

dam thats pretty awesome

Yeah say what you want about the build and the entire angle, but that match was pretty great. They both seemed to sell everything well, and Orton gets points for taking that monitor. Wonder if he got pissed at Batista after the match because on the replay it looks like Batista was the one who chucked the monitor there. Who knows. I'm sure it wasn't intentional but you think he would have known better.

No one argues that. They didn't really come back to life until HHH came back out.





Taker really never recovered from that, which was in the first few minutes of the match. He let out a bellow and for the rest of the match he was down, sucking wind, CONSTANTLY talking to Brock, telling him to slow down, help him up, or let him breathe.

Then this happened



And then this happened




He also appeared to have injured his ribs from the first F5.

Undertaker can be the example from now on for people who watch MMA and practice MMA and think they can work a guy who actually does MMA

Shoulda never put him in the ring with Brock. The guy is the roughest worker in the WWE. Like, what did Undertaker think was gonna happen? You think after the first takedown, Undertaker went, 'I've made a terrible mistake.'?

He probably forgot and then remembered every bump he took. Watch the match back again, he's not even trying to hide his talking the whole match. Asking for help, breathing room, for Brock to ease up. He got wrecked right away. But even before that, he looked hobbled and slow. Seconds in he looked like he shouldn't have taken the match. I have a feeling that the first Irish whip kind of stunned him, too.

I'm pretty sure Taker's age and multiple surgeries have more to do with this than the fact Brock is a retired MMA fighter.

Wow that looks terrible, didn't they like practice? I mean these part timers can meet up at a facility and practice the spots in the match. That first gif the fuck was Brock trying to do. I heard the Rock did that with R-Truth and Miz in the tag match.

That leg take down spot and the repeated powerbombs might give validity to those rumors awhile back that Brock wouldn't be willing to put the time in to practice the match like previous Taker opponents. Especially the former.

WWE usually flies out Taker's opponent after the last Raw before Mania to go over the match with him at his place (where he's got a ring in a private facility). There was some concern over whether Lesnar would be willing to do that. No one knows if he did or not. The day of WM30, Heyman posted a picture of himself and Lesnar in a ring somewhere in a building with the caption "Secret training sessions" so maybe he did?
