Below is the Taker portion of JR’s RAW Review blog:
While it was great to see The Undertaker on any WWE broadcast as we did Monday night I would have loved to have heard more from the phenom as to why he was essentially doing McMahon’s bidding against VKM’s only son at Wrestlemania Texas. The son’s blood will be on the hands of the father was an ominous message but I needed a bit more information. I am looking forward to the Shane-Taker match and the subsequent build for this special attraction contest that will be held inside HIAC at the biggest event of the year and likely before 100,000+ fans in AT&T Stadium. Yes, I still think that WWE will have over 100,000 fans on hand for Wrestlemania Texas, a title that was first named ‘Wrestlemania Texas’ on a Ross Report months ago. That might earn me a fee tee shirt.
It will be interesting as to who Shane’s allies will be, if any, for this dramatic match that has more riding on it than many once perceived.
I also don’t think that the HIAC match will go on last as that spot should be reserved for the WWE Title bout.
I would’ve liked to hear more from Taker too. But fact is he said all he needed to. Taker sent Vince an ominous message. What more could he have said? How would it have helped if he said anymore?
We haven’t seen a Taker Contract Signing segment since the one between him and Orton for WM21. I kinda wanna see a Contract Signing segment between Taker and Shane.
I do not think HIAC will close out WM either. Reigns vs HHH, World Title will close it and I’m sure being the old schooler that he is, Taker would want it that way.
