Backstage Update on Undertaker, WWE Not Buying Library?, Bruno

– WWE still has not bought the UWF tape library from the family of Bill Watts. Word is that every time WWE passed them a new contract, there was something in there that the Watts family didn’t like so they backed off. There’s a feeling that the deal may not happen at all now.

– There are rumblings that WWE may be interested in helping to distribute the movie on the life of Bruno Sammartino that has been in the works in Hollywood for a few years now. The hope would be that this would lead to Sammartino allowing WWE to induct him into the Hall of Fame next year but people close to Bruno insist that he will not go into the WWE Hall of Fame.

– Regarding The Undertaker wrestling at WrestleMania 29, it’s said that the decision is all up to him at this point. There is talk of using him just in the Royal Rumble main event if he doesn’t want to come back for a full WrestleMania storyline and match.

    Jon you silly fool. It already comfrimed it a rematch of Triple H vs Lesnar at WM. If Taker going to have a match WM if he does it going to be against Ryback. So give it up and stop repeating yourself. IT NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

    Well whatever happens, if Undertaker decides not to cme back, or does indeed hang up that trenchcoat, I hope the WWE mark this with one hell of an appreciation ceremony for all his contribution and loyalty over the last 22 years

    While I have more respect for Taker than anyone else on the roster. If he is no longer capable of producing his annual Wrestlemania epic, then surely time has come for him to hang up his trenchcoat. The Streak is Takers enduring legacy. Nobody cares about his Royal Rumble achievements any more.
    The Streak is what matters, and if he can no longer give a performance worthy of maintaining it, then 20-0 would be the right time for him to retire.

    Taker vs Lesnar would be perfect for this. Taker get in the rumble just to be thrown or distraced by Brock. Make perfect sense for a WM match.
