Of fucking course no one does. Vince would rather job Cena to Brian Danielson in 15 seconds at Mania than make Taker lose. BUT, the point is to create heat, to create tension, to create doubt.
Let's be honest, there was a slight draw to seeing HHH take on Undertaker those 2nd and 3rd times because we thought "OK, maybe HHH will use his political power to go over Undertaker at mania." Really everything except who won that match was irrelevant, but it worked because of that one doubt. That's all you need is a doubt. There is no doubt whatsoever that Taker would beat Punk at mania. Now on the other hand someone like Brock Lesnar... that would create doubt. That would make the viewer think "hmmmm....maybe Brock has a chance of winning here." That doubt is all it takes to sell a ticket.
