Well, just saw Jeff's big return promo at the end of Tits N Ass' show. Wow.
First he comes down to the ring with his face music (apparently when he turned up high and got owned by Sting, that was his face turn), which is incredibly ironic because the lyrics to the intro and chorus repeats that he's "modest to the top, modest at the top".
He thanks the kayfabe network for letting him speak, and that he won't take long.
Then he starts cutting a forced-emotional promo that sounds like he's saying he let everyone down for losing to Sting in a few seconds, not for being high at a PPV main event, or at all. He didn't have to say anything about drugs, he could've even said that he was sorry for being "irresponsible" or "putting others in a bad position" and so on.
He ends it, though, by saying he CAN'T expect everyone to forgive him(TM), but all he "can do is ask". He follows that line up by demanding "give me one more shot". Not even a please.
Then he reiterates that all he can do is ask (not all he can do is make it up to everyone by working his butt off, helping others and earning his due) then just drops the mic and leaves the ring! And TNA dub the "one more shot" chant that had ended a few seconds ago over the end credit.
Wow. I always wondered what would happened if a 12 year old kid playing EWR happened in real life, and I've been seeing it - TNA.
What next? Andre the Giant's corpse making his debut as a German?

It becomes doubtful but the thing is, the streak in the last 5/6 years especially has been built in a way where people have a much greater vested interest before the match, in who he faces. It doesn't become doubtful per say, simply people want believable opponents for him, guys that legitly could beat him and matches in which there are moments, even for a split second where you go, "holy ****, hes gonna lose" (triple h tombstoning taker wm27, hbk superkick wm25 etc)

I don't see why you say 'without doubt'. there is a lot of doubt over Taker's future and streak opponents. The only certainty is that he won't lose, but that's so certain that it then becomes doubtful.
The rumours sound like complete BS. So Vince brought Rock in to host, and then was surprised that he was quite popular? Really? You really think that?
look at it this way, wrestlemania 25/wrestlemania 26 had stronger cards than wrestlemania 27... lets be honest wrestlemania 27 had the weakest wrestlemania main event out of all 3.. and mind you wrestlemania 25 practically had 2 main events (orton vs hhh and hbk vs taker) and wm26 had batista vs cena and taker vs hbk. so wm27 only has miz vs cena, was a decent match but the crowd were dead and before this ppv began people knew rock would get involved but overall would only host the event. wm27 drew over 1.12 million buys, whereas wrestlemania 26 drew 950k and wm25 860k. Overall the cards for wm25/26 were arguably stronger because wm27 didnt even have a very strong main event or money in the bank, i dont think rock "hosting" a wrestlemania should have given wwe the impression they would have a massive increase in wm buys, not by 200k buys anyway. Yes it helped, but 200k for a wrestlemania buy rate is massive... and thus they realised not using rock again would be silly.
Eitherway i dont know why cena vs taker would be a shocking kinda rumour, after you make hhh face taker for the 2nd time ever, practically ignoring there wm17 encouter through the whole buildup, and the fact that he faced micahels for 2 straight years... who else could he face except the face of the company? the guy that has been built up so strongly... no legend can make you believe that they can beat taker anymore than cena. So no we won't get cena vs taker this year, but if taker has 1 more wrestlemania after this one, then yeah i would bet quite highly on the possibility of cena vs taker. but your right his future is very shady because of his injuries and whether he wants to continue on for the sake of it, we dont know.

I heard Taker's back at Vengeance a few weeks ago so they may start the WM promo from there.

Ahem. We USED to get the PPVs free a lot of time (notably Stone Cold's return at Backlash, Stone Cold winning the Royal Rumble, Stone Cold tag teaming with Triple freakin' H at Backlash a year after pwning his entire family and faction, Stone Cold going through a car window at 6-man Hell in a Cell at Armageddon, and... Rikishi jumping his fat ass off the cage onto Val Venis at Fully Loaded's multi-main event PPV).

They may criticise us for having bad dental hygiene, but at least we get the PPVs for free a lot of the time.
Now YOU get it for a monthly fee to watch Sky.
I, however, do not get it. So there.
Gee at least I can watch TNA dubbing dead theme park free-entry crowds while turning Mr Kennedy every few weeks for free. Actually, no, I don't watch that.
