Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
- Regarding The Rock winning the WWE Title from CM Punk, there is a lot of talk that the title change won't happen at the Royal Rumble. Instead, Rock would win the title at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in the Chamber main event.

Only chance of that report is the other way around. Rock wins the belt at Royal Rumble, the big PPV which is promoted around his title chase after 10 years. Then losing at EC in a Chamber match due to a Brock interference setting up Rock/Lesnar at the WM29 main event AND giving the payoff of Rock winning the belt again. Looks to me like the perfect booking without having to worry about the belt after Mania. Rock is going over at the Rumble either way, it's just the question of EC/WM/Lesnar/Cena afterward.
