No, no. Don't think of something new. Just present it as straightforwardly as possible.

CM Punk: Bad guy. Bad guy holding WWE Championship. Bad guy holding it for 14 months (at that point). Bad guy doing everything he can to keep said WWE Championship.

The Rock: Good guy. Good guy who wants the WWE Championship. Who was told by some anonymous source back when there wasn't a set GM that he's getting a shot at the WWE Championship held by Punk at The Royal Rumble (because it fits with Rock's schedule, haha).

That's all you have to do. Let Rock do his catchphrases and shit, let Punk be the weaselly heel WWE Champion. Yadda yadda yadda.

But, no. We're going to get "Dwayne" and "Dewey" and "Phillip" and "Phil" and "You're Hollywood, I'm here all the time," and "You'll never be the beloved megastar that I was" and all that shit.
100% spot on.
