Backstage News on Lesnar vs. Undertaker, Criticism Over Booking

– There are people within WWE who believe that Brock Lesnar should have been booked differently and as more of a threat to The Undertaker, since the only point Lesnar did anything to Taker was the go-home angle on RAW this week, and that was still a sneak up from behind distraction with the announcers calling Lesnar a coward.

The original feud between Taker and Lesnar that was talked about in 2010 had Taker proposing that Lesnar beat him to end The Streak, although that was never seriously considered, thinking it would be the right thing for business. Feelings on The Streak have obviously changed since then.

Vince McMahon made the decision that in the build for this match, Taker never gets touched. He was smart enough to change that rule for the final build this week on RAW.

    If they were smart they would have referenced the feud between the 2 from a several years ago, of course that’s when Taker was the badass and they don’t seem to like mentioning that. I think in every match they had, Lesnar went over Taker and they had some brutal matches.
