Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
I don't thing they should put the title on The Rock.
Yes,he's a big draw money name and Vince's ratings would go on top as well as with a WM rematch(John Cena vs The Rock).
But they all forget how easily The Rock left WWE and made a 7 year career on Hollywood without even mentioning WWE or wrestling in his interviews.Not even once.He's leaving and coming back whenever he wants and now 99% he's winning the title.
Imo a good scenario would be Brock Lesnar returning at the RR to help Heyman's guy CM Punk retain so he could go on face Dwayne at Wrestlemania(Brock vs Rock).I think Punk should at least reach WM with a 500 days reign and face...let's say The Undertaker.
Dwayne Johnson has said in numerous interviews since that the reason he never mentioned or brought up the WWE was because he did not want to take advantage of the brand nor its fans. He wanted to make it in Hollywood on his own without leveraging and leeching off "The Rock's" popularity
it's also part of the reasons he made movies like the Tooth Fairy or played being Gay..
he wasn't ignoring or putting down the WWE.. it's the opposite, he wanted to make it on his own and not capitalize on the WWE's fanbase
