    All that mean to me is that HHH and Undertaker still got that draw power. I mean nobody really know Undertaker was going to make an return. Also HHH to me was being more himself. What I mean is having fun again with John. It looks like HHH will be the GM of Raw again after Wrestlemania 28.

    I think the match between HHH vs Undertaker could very well be both guys last match.I mean everybody think it may be Undertaker last match but HHH too. I mean don’t see HHH wrestling a whole lot after Undertaker anymore. I just think the streak is the only thing HHH is after. I just have this feeling HHH is going to do it. Why because if you know anything about HHH history normally a 3rd time he face a wrestler who has his number he comes out on top. I also think that Undertaker wants it to be HHH to end his streak. Much like HBK retire Ric Flair. HHH is going to retire Undertaker.

    That was obviously a wig of some sort underneath Taker’s hat. It was too curly in comparison to how his real hair was. Kane as well. Besides the fact that we all knew Kane was bald two months ago and hair doesn’t grow that long that quick, his current “hair” is too curly unlike how his real hair was.

    No Undertaker and Kane are both using extensions for their hair.

    Dolph vs Orton was the second best match of the night! Why such a loss!

    Kofi vs The Miz was a good match. It was nice to see Undertaker come back.

    The Kofi vs Miz match I thought was a good match, i really don’t understand why ratings drop when they wrestle. Everyone complains about not being enough wrestling but when they do the ratings go down, it really makes me confused.

    I’m pretty sure it’s Kane that’s bald and has a wig

    Just an Idea, HHH should declinde Undertakers offer, and Taker should come back as the badass and say if you wont face the deadman than face the badass. This might actually happen because Taker has a wig..and is blad
