I'm not sure I agree with Taker feeding his ego. It's about the company at this point as much as him, and putting Punk over isn't worth the value IMO. From what I have always read Taker has always had the locker room in mind when making decisions, with the exception of the streak. It's not like he has been some title driven guy.
Have to agree with this card though. Glad I have tickets. The "majesty" of it all is the only thing I am looking forward to at this point.
