Actually, does the WWE have *any* money matches left?

Vince McMahon vs Undertaker

Already done, remember? Ended with a Buried Alive match.

Hogan vs Austin

If we're limited to picking from the active roster, then they still have Cena vs Batista (although the match will suck). There are a bunch of potential money matches involving HBK vs Smackdown wrestlers -- I'm sure a lot of people would pay to see HBK vs Taker: HIAC II, for example.

But I could always watch HBK vs Taker HIAC: The Original on DVD at half speed!

So the Smackdown spoilers seem to indicate Batista/Taker at WMania... Batista ends the streak in a "respect match", and then goes on to retire injured in October. Fantastic.

two weeks pass...
You know, Taker vs Cena seems pretty money right now.

I'm not really feeling that. They've feuded a couple of times already (OK, it was before Cena became a huge star, but still) and right now Batista needs that rub a lot more than Cena does.

OTOH, I've been hoping for Shawn to move to SD for a while now, and now the timing couldn't be better with HHH out for a while. The past week has shown just how many more interesting matchups (besides Cena) Shawn could have if he left RAW (which will never happen, unfortunately).

October 5th this year will be the 10th anniversary of the original Hell In A Cell, so that would be an obvious time to run Taker/Michaels...

Cena/Undertaker is a bad idea because the E have had enough trouble with guys (Angle, Jericho, HHH) deliberately working face against him to make him look like an idiot. Heel Taker would get face heat regardless, so it's just gonna damage him.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 1 February 2007 17:27 (fourteen years ago) link

I think we're at least six months past the need to worry about Cena being damaged by the face or heel heat he might get. He gets the biggest reactions of anyone on the roster regardless of his opponent.

You say that, but would you give him a match against a one-shotter like The Rock or Hogan?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Friday, 2 February 2007 13:06 (fourteen years ago) link

Sure, why not? What does it matter if he gets booed in a one-time only dream match. Everyone involved would be too busy counting their money to care about the heel/face fallout from Rock vs Cena.

I think at this point, Cena can only gain fans, not lose them. I mean, he's winning some people over by working hard and busting his ass despite being pretty much the most hated pushed babyface in a long time. On top of that, his fans (yes, women and children) have shown that they'll stick by him no matter how "uncool" portions of the audience try to make him out to be.

Taker/Cena works for me because Cena has shown with the Umaga feud that he does well in the underdog role and he's way in over his head seemingly against a legend like Taker, especially with The Streak. Batista/Taker is kinda intriguing but Batista has lost too much steam at this point.
