Re: Is it even a remote possibility that CM Punk defeats The Rock clean at Royal Rumb
It depends on what they think will be a bigger card at WM. Cena/Rock II has the possibility of greatly underperforming as a rematch. So if they want a long Punk/Rock feud into WM then Punk isn't winning at the Rumble. However, if some of the "rumours" are true and they are thinking Taker/Punk then more than likely he will win. And I'd guess it wouldn't be clean, unless they really really want to build doubt about the streak this year.
But then of course... if they really think people want Rock/Cena II for the belt, well yeah... obviously Punk won't win.
Wrestling fan first... company fan last. Nothing worst than the fan that is loyal to the brand first and the wrestling second.
