I'm not expecting it to happen though, but I do think it would be the better choice. Another factor of what would be best is of course also how much The Rock can be on Raw from now to WM. It's hard to take into account though since we have no idea.
It's only predictable of you have been on the web for about 24 hours, in each 7 days, in each 4 weeks of last 6 months of your life.
Rock needs to establish his credibility back after being away again for so long and one great way to do it is to win the title in his first match back.
Punk has nothing to lose since he gained nothing anyway in the past 14 months that they have pushed him to the galaxies other threatening Big Sexy's record of being the greatest box office king in the companies' history.
