Re: Backstage news on Vince and Rock ending Punk's championship reign
The best way to solve this problem is simple: Make Punk go down like a fighting champion if he were to lose to The Rock. Remember Randy Savage's year long reign was ended by Hogan, but the reign could have looked better if they allowed Savage to kick out of the Big Boot/Leg Drop. I believe the same could be said in the way Jericho lost the title to Tripe H at WM 18.
If I were booking this match I would let Rock hit a Rock Bottom but let Punk kick out. Rock could have a shocked look on his face. Then have Rock hit another about 2-3 minutes later for the win. After that Rock should have a look of "relief" that he finally put Punk down.
