I wouldn't worry about that bit, Rock loves to sell and sells like a God. Any moves Punk hits Rock with Rock will make it look like it is slowly wiping him out of existence, when he fought Cena at times it looked like he was dying.
Punk will end up looking strong from his Rock feud, problem is whether that's enough, yes Rock winning would be epic if he shows up enough and looks like an actual champion and yes it would be good business in the short or even medium term, in the long run though I wonder if undermining your number 2 guy for a guy who is never going to be there more the 10% of the year is the best strategy, when in that time you could build up some midcarders or create new stars like how they've created Ryback.
