Re: How Can Rock Be Champion If He Cant Be on Raw Weekly?

Which makes me think he really wont win the title and it was just a rumor and gimick to pump ppv sales to see Rock win the title only to not have it happen? If you look at his IMDB page he is schedule for a more movies in 2013.
Maybe if you pay him a 20 million dollar downside guarantee a year with a very large PPV and merchandise percentage you might have a chance.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
