3.WWE wasn't mainstream when Rock vs Cena happened.It certainly won't happen now since Punk is not even on the same level as Cena.

4.When CM Punk retains the title against Rock,the prestige of the title will be more.

5.Rock winning the title will show how shitty the roster.He had his win against Cena.He is one of the GOATS.Doesn't mean he has to beat everyone in the current roster.

If Mike Tyson came back and beat the World Champion;
The short term benefit is people will take notice.
The long time problem is people will talk about what a shitty heavyweight divison it is.
It's pretty obvious that Rock's title reign is going to end with John Cena winning the belt at Wrestlemania 29.

That right there is a moment CM Punk cannot deliver. Cena defeating the Rock at WM 29 just is a bigger accomplishment than ending Punk's 500 day reign.

Complain about it all you want but by the time Wrestlemania comes Cena would have spent 18 months away from the belt and WWE wants to right that. CM Punk's 400 day reign really is only there because WWE wanted Cena v Rock at WM 29 to happen.

Punk's got to move aside for the actual face of the company. Complain about it all you want.

As for creating stars. John Cena's got a much better track record than Punk. If Ryback were to get a clean victory over Cena at Summerslam that's a bigger moment than ending Punk's 2,000 day reign. Once again sorry but we all know who the actual face of the company is.
